Perception Vs. Reality: ‘Long Writer Runs’ At Marvel & DC [Opinion]

Nightwing Fantastic Four Batwoman

Last week, two of the very small handful of writers still working on DC Comics' New 52 titles they launched announced they were finally ending their runs. In the case of Teen Titans writer Scott Lobdell, the catalyst was the complete cancellation of the title with issue #30. Nightwing, meanwhile, will continue, but Kyle Higgins won't be writing it.

A distinctly different animal than the independent cartoonist, creators-owned collaboration or even work-for-hire artist, writing gigs in ongoing cape comics have always been fluid, but the turnover seems to be faster and more common now than it's ever been. Whether a result of cancellations, writers moving on to other things (often finite, creator-owned work), or creative differences with editorial, Marvel and DC writer runs are getting shorter and shorter.

Or are they? Maybe it just feels that way?

Between all of their brawls -- both with criminals and each other -- the cast of Teen Titans Go! channels more than their collective share of aggression. On tonight's new "Breakfast Cheese" episode on Cartoon Network, Starfire sees how it's affecting her friends and suggests a (perhaps) better alternative. After all, what does violence solve? Furthermore, what does cheese have to do with it? Fans will be able to see if the heroine's proposed lives of peace and nonviolence stick tonight, but in the meantime, you can catch our clip from the latest episode of TTG! after the jump.

Mego’s Teen Titans 7″ Figures Return In 2014 From Figures Toy Company

Mego's storied Worlds Greatest Super Heroes line of the '70s shaped an action figure era with 8" articulated plastic dolls adorned with cloth costumes, but there was a special corner of the line reserved for sidekicks standing just 7" tall. That line? The 1977 Teen Titans series featuring Speedy, Aqualad, Wonder Girl and Kid Flash. Following the release of several waves of Batman Mego reissues, Figures Toy Company is turning its attention to rolling out all four of the previously limited edition dolls in the first quarter of 2014.

Ask Chris #161: Clash of the Titans

Q: How much better is the original Teen Titans series than the New Teen Titans? -- @boxofmillipedes

A: You know, Millie, it's funny. New Teen Titans is a book that hits every single checkmark of something I should like. I love teenage superheroes, I'm a sucker for weird team-ups involving goofy combinations like half-demons, half-robots and full-on alien princesses, and Robin and Wally West are two of my all-time favorite characters. Throw those things together in a book by the dude who wrote Tomb of Dracula and the artist who would go on to draw my favorite run of Avengers? That oughtta be a slam dunk, but every single time I read it, it feels like homework.

Folks, it's been thirty years. Maybe it's time we all come together and just admit that New Teen Titans was not that great.

Comics By Chance: Reviewing Cheap, Random Buys [August 2013]

comicsbychanceaugust

I think the intuition/thought process of buying cheap comics is interesting. There's a combination of randomness, curatorial sense and instinct at play. You end up with a group of comics that would ordinarily never be linked together, from different times, artists and publishers, but links and common themes are there and just need to be unearthed. You end up with a vantage point on the artform you would never get otherwise. No scholar would ever link these comics, but the link is there. This is how most readers, especially the uncounted legion of casual fans who aren't part of the Wednesday crowd, encounter comics.I picked up this particular group of comics at a sidewalk sale for a dollar each. They're exactly the type you'd find at a place that doesn't specialize in comics, in this case The Record Exchange. None are rare or valuable. None are celebrated classics of the form. They're probably comics you've seen a many times and thought nothing of, but each tells its own story.They are Green Lantern Corps #223 and #224, Super Soldier #1, The New Teen Titans #9, and Green Lantern1,000,000.

TTG01

For obvious reasons, we're pretty big fans of triumphant returns, and there aren't many that have been as awesome as Cartoon Network's revival of Teen Titans Go!. Over the past few months, it's been a hoot to watch every week, and at San Diego, we sat down for a roundtable interview with producer Aaron Horvath and voice actors Tara Strong, Greg Cipes, Scott Menville and Khary Payton to find out just what it's like to work on the show and why they're so focused on food.

‘Teen Titans Go!’ Premieres Tonight On Cartoon Network

tt011160hm004-1366746879

From 2003 to 2006, Teen Titans was one of the most fun and enjoyable translations of the DC Universe to television, but sadly, all good things must end. I learned that from Star Trek, so it has to be true. Sometimes, however, good things manage
