Tuesday Roundup: Titans Take the Page
It’s Tuesday, and as every good first grader knows, that starts with a T. And you know what else starts with a T, don’t you?
T-E-E-N T-I-T-A-N-S! Teen Titans, LET’S GO!!!
Yes, that’s right. The hit animated series from Cartoon Network is exploding onto the comic book page this week. And judging by the cover of the premiere issue, we mean that rather literally…
Trust us, you don’t want to let a pizza get the better of you. That happened to us a week ago and our stomach’s have only recently forgiven us. But that’s nothing compared to what you’ll go through if you miss out on the premiere issue of the new Teen Titans Go! comic book! Humor, action, bizarre don’t-question-and-just-go-with-it scenarios are par for the course in this take on the Titans, and the comic series captures it perfectly.
And speaking of humor, it’s also in abundant supply in HARLEY QUINN #1, the debut issue proper of Harley’s new ongoing series by Jimmy Palmiotti, Amanda Conner and Chad Hardin. (We say proper because as most fans know, the series actually launched last month with a clever, fourth-wall-breaking Zero Issue.) In this week’s issue, Harley joins a roller derby team. Hmm… Girls with bad attitudes, roller skates, breakneck speeds and a crazed, current member of the Suicide Squad? What could possibly go wrong?
Two issue #1’s, plus eagerly awaited new installments of Batman and Two-Face, Wonder Woman, Animal Man, Forever Evil: Rogues Rebellion, Red Hood and the Outlaws, and Green Lantern: New Guardians. Christmas may be a week away, but it appears there’s a lot to look forward to in the meantime!
Check out previews of all of these comics and more below (unfortunately, you’ll have to wait till Wednesday to check out Teen Titans Go!, or if you really can’t wait, you can always download the first chapter digitally).
