The Thing and Tiny Titans



Or the Teeny Tiny Titans, to be exact!  Tiny Titans is one of the hidden Gems of DC's current output.  I liked the promotional materials, so I picked up the first issue on a whim.  I was instantly hooked.  It's one of the few comics that can always be counted on to make me laugh out loud with each issue.  The character designs and humor are perfect for kids and the DCU in-jokes are plentiful, which give long time fans a lot to enjoy as well.  I'm not sure which of any of DC's kid's line will survive post reboot, but I hope this title doesn't go anywhere.  It's the best superhero themed children's comic I have ever seen and it would be a shame for it to go away.

Dave sez,

Art Baltazar and Franco are "genius, sheer genius!", to quote Wile E. Coyote.

Tiny Titans is awesome.

I don't think DC is going to quit in Tiny Titans any time soon. It is the ONE original all-ages book that is NOT based on an animated series.

It is unfortunate that most all-ages tie-in books, except for the Batman: TAS books, have not survived much long after the series ended.

Tiny Titans is brilliant in that it seems to be based on all of the sidekicks co-existing at the same time together.

...and, wackiness ensues.

Fun cover! Tiny Titans is a fun comic and a big hit at our house.

The kids love it for the art work and the jokes and I love it because of all the old-school DC references that pop up each issue.
