It's just another day in Metropolis. Superman saves the city from a giant meteor; Lex Luthor plots to steal Superman's powers via robotic invasion; Supergirl, Superboy and Krypto fight the good fight; Perry White screams at Jimmy Olsen for coffee ...
While Superman is wearing his new suit (it's admired by Dan DiDio), the all-ages story here isn't totally 2012, with the pre-New 52 Conner Kent the featured Superboy, Supergirl the modestly garbed Teen Titans version, Lex in Bronze Age mode and Perry White played by Ed Asner.
And, from the dawn of the Silver Age, welcome back Fuzzy the Krypto Mouse!
It all makes for a spiffy debut for Tiny Titans creators Art Baltazar and Franco's latest project. The chaps' script hangs together nicely, while Franco's full-colour artwork is deceptively simplistic and all-out charming.
The gags don't come as thick and fast as might be expected, but it's worth bearing in mind that Tiny Titans took awhile to find its form. This book is certainly worth $2.99, with it's done-in-one fun story and feature pages. I can see young kids loving this as a First Superman Reader, and older kids lapping up the light-hearted, nostalgic nonsense of it all.
