Awww Yeah, Tiny Titans Returns

titans
Somehow missed in all the hooplah at NYCC this week was the tidbit Franco Aureliani let slip over twitter that Tiny Titans will be making its return to DC Comics. While this might be confusing to some considering that the Teen Titans the book features aren’t recognizable at all in the new 52, the return of Art and Franco to the title is cause for joy and celebration. Itty Bitty Hellboy has been brilliant and we can only hope for more greatness with volume two of Tiny Titans.

No news yet as to when it will happen, but let’s all take a moment to get our hopes up and enjoy the return of a great book before its inevitable cancellation.


All New Marvel Now Title Explosion

Avengers-All-New-Marvel-NowWord coming out of the Marvel panels at NYCC has a slew of new titles being announced, some of which are extremely interesting indeed. Let’s give a quick rundown.

  • All-New Invaders by James Robinson
  • Secret Avengers gets a new # 1 issue with the new creative team of Ales Kot and Michael Walsh.
  • Avengers World by Nick Spencer and Jonathan Hickman with art by Stefano Casseli.
  • Avengers Undercover, a replacement for Avengers Arena by Dennis Hopeless and Kev Walker
  • Loki – Agent of Asgard by Al Ewing and Lee Garbett
  • A new Black Widow book by Nate Edmondson and Phil Noto
  • She-Hulk by Charles Soule and Javier Pulido
  • Silver Surfer by Dan Slott and Mike Allred
  • Iron Patriot by Ales Kot and Gary Brown

What are you most looking forward to? Personally, Black Widow and She-Hulk look the most promising and I cannot wait to see the internet explode over Dan Slott’s Silver Surfer. I’m not sure we needed ANOTHER Avengers title to go with Avengers, New Avengers, Avengers Assemble, et. al. But seeing Hickman filtered through Spencer could make for some interesting stories.

 


Greg Rucks lifts the VEIL at Dark Horse

I consider this site to be one of Greg Rucka’s biggest cheerleaders. We think the guy is amazing and will hype up his work as much as we can because nine times out of ten (a conservative estimate) he knocks whatever projects he’s working on out of the park. So the news out of NYCC that he’ll be penning a five-issue miniseries for Dark Horse to be illustrated by Toni Fejzula gives us a real case of the giddies. The log line seems right up Mr. Rucka’s alley;

“A beautiful girl wakes up in an abandoned subway station with no memory of how she got there. When men try to hurt her . . . they wind up dead. Where did she come from? And what is she capable of?”

The book is expected to hit shelves and digital download next March and mark another notch in Rucka’s amazing creator owned comics slam-dunk belt.
