Tiny Titans #41 review

The super-speedster Titans decide to have a race, five times round the world, losers buy the lemonade. Blue Beetle is all set to make some moolah with his lemonade stand, but some stupid alien backpack has forgotten to pack the fruit. Raven makes sure she's out of the way of the 'Flash mob'. And Wonder Girl decides to try wearing  a mask.

It's the usual fun and games as creators Art Balthazar and Franco gather the fastest kids on Earth - Kid Flash, Inertia, Mas y Menos, Jesse Quick and Peek-a-Boo (who I remember as a teleporter, but she does have well-oiled roller skates). The art is as bright as the script, whose gags as as good-natured as ever, and there's even a tie-in to a certain crossover.
Well, it works for me!

  1. I'm convinced that Tiny Titans often drops hints about what's coming in the DCU. That's on top of it being the only Titans book that still 'gets' the Titans.

  2. I missed this on the stands... I'll have to pick it up when I go back on Wednesday. Very happy to see a little love for Peek-a-Boo (who is/was a teleporter, true)!

  3. Now that's a thought, ToB. Tiny Titans: Prelude to EVERYTHING!

    Rob, I wish Peek-a-Boo would make a comeback in the older line, she was interesting.

  4. Finally read this this morning -- what a great issue!

  5. Tiny Titans is not only the best Titans book of the last 4 years, but perhaps the ONLY GOOD Titans book of the last 4 years.

    Its only competition is Teen Titans: Year One. Other than that, I think we have to go back decades for a good Titans book.
