    Review: Teen Titans #19

    Review: Teen Titans #19

    Teen Titans #19Teen Titans #19 opens up with a quick recap for those who may have missed part of the story. While it isn’t the typical “Last Time on Teen Titans,” kind of recap, a new reader jumping in gets a pretty quick read of the field in regard to who the major players are. Cassie, aka Wonder Girl, is faced with a heavy decision in this issue, and she is torn between her demi-god aunts who both make valid arguments in support of their stances. Cassie’s friends, the Teen Titans, help her weigh both sides as the clock winds down on one of her most important decisions.

    Teen Titans #19 takes us as readers through a turmoil we all face on a regular basis. Do we make the easy decision or the harder one that we know is right? This issue tugs at the heartstrings as we see Cassie struggle to figure out what to do with the new power given to her, and we ultimately see that the decision she ends up making, albeit the right decision, doesn’t always yield the satisfaction one should receive from being the bigger person.

    As always, Teen Titans does a fairly good job pacing the story across its pages, and the artwork has a style that is almost unmistakable. The readers get to see all members of their favorite teen team in this issue, and they are all important players in the decision that looms over Wonder Girl.

    Aw Yeah! TFAW Interviews Art Baltazar and Franco!

    Tiny Titans by Art Baltazar and FrancoKids Comics Month is really hitting its stride with this awesome (and hilarious) interview with Tiny Titans creators Art Baltazar and Franco!

    If you haven’t picked up Tiny Titans yet, what are you waiting for? Not only did this fantastic comic win the 2009 Eisner Award for Best Publication for Kids, but this off-the-wall book is funny, sweet, and offers a plethora of in-jokes to fans of ’80s-era Teen Titans. This makes Tiny Titans the perfect series for today’s comic book fans to enjoy with the tiny readers in their lives.

    Read on to learn about the genesis of Tiny Titans and Little Archie and discover what Art and Franco’s next collaboration, Young Justice, will be like!

    TFAW.com: Thanks so much for taking the time out of your schedules for this interview. Plus, I’m a huge fan of Tiny Titans, so it was a great excuse for me to read everything again to prepare.

    Art Baltazar: That’s cool.

    TFAW.com: First, since I don’t know your voices really well, could you quickly say which one is which?

    Art: This is me.

    Tiny Titans #35Franco Aureliani: I’m the one who sounds really good looking.

    Art: Yeah, and I’m the one who sounds like he needs to take a shower.

    TFAW.com: Perfect! Okay, how did the concept for Tiny Titans start?

    Art: Jann [Jones] from DC called me and asked who my favorite DC characters were. And I told her Teen Titans, and that’s it, pretty much! She said she had a concept that she was working on for kids books, and she had an idea for a title called Tiny Titans. So I guess I had the right answer! It was real strange how things came together just through conversation. But that’s the way it happened. She had an idea, and I said the right thing, and we kept going.

    TFAW.com: How did Franco get involved?

    Franco: Art called me, and he had already agreed to the project, and he sent them a whole bunch of samples of a book we had worked on previously called Patrick the Wolf Boy, and Jann showed the books to Dan Didio, and Dan looked at them and said, “Who’s this Franco guy?” And Art said, “He’s the guy who helps me on the book, and we’ve been working together for awhile, and things are funny when we do them together and stuff,” and Dan said, “All right, if he wants to work on the book too, he can do that.”

    Art: Yeah! And then I called Franco up and asked him if he wanted to write a book for DC, and he said, “Yeah!” and I said, “Good, ’cause I already told them you would!”

    TFAW.com: How does your collaborative process work with the writing?

    Teen TitansFranco: Ummm . . .

    Art: Ummm . . .

    Franco: The way it always does! On the phone!

    Art: Yeah, we talk on the phone, write stuff down, and when we’re done, we send each other emails, and make stories up from our notes and stuff. We talk, probably, a little bit every day. And now with Skype, it’s free! We don’t have to pay those big bills no more! Our phone bills went down a lot with Skype.

    TFAW.com: You said these are your favorite characters, so you must have read a lot of the original Teen Titans books?

    Art: Yeah! Both of us were big fans of the George Perez-Marv Wolfman comics. And we also read John Byrne’s Superman: Man of Steel, and all that stuff. Well, we read all comics, we’ve been reading them since we were kids, since we were 6, 7, 8 years old. So this is what we know–the comics, and we know all the characters. There’s nothing else we can do but make comics. We’re not good at anything else!

    Franco: Yeah we are! We’re just really good at making comics.
