AGH NO STEPH NO

And I was just discussing covers!




Oh God. Under other circumstances I would love Steph joining the Titans. She could smack Tim whenever he started to angst and it would be so glorious.

But I do. Not. Trust. Mckeever. At. All. Especially after that Wendy and Marvin shit. Being a Titan is a death sentence. Either that or you become emo. THERE IS NO OTHER WAY.

Unless you are Jaime, I hope.

Goddammit. Steph deserves to be on a superhero team. But I'm sure McKeever's writing will make me cry. And Barrow's art. Though she doesn't look too bad on this cover, aside from the fact she has TWO legbands and they are yellow, but apparently I'm the only one who keeps track of that stuff.

Calm down, Nev. She probably won't join. It's a tryout. She'll just be humiliated or something.



Yeah, I know, Steph, I'm sorry.

The worst thing is I'll have to pick this up. Because if it has Steph in it, I can't resist. It's how I am.



Okay, I'm not quite as upset as this post makes it seemed. In fact, I'm partway curious to see how Steph will react to all the emo. But I am also scared out of my mind.

...

Moving on, I totally thought Misfit was Brenda there, and was so confused. But apparently it is Charlie and she is not wearing her mask for some reason. But wtf with Jaime even inviting Traci 13? Has he lost his mind? Or does he want his girlfriend to die?

I feel Mia is safe on this team for some reason. I don't know why, but I do. God, and I wanted a Speedy/Spoiler team up. Just not like this.

Also, if I was Supergirl I would be all NO THANKS after the way Cassie treated her.

And Tim is a giant. Now you know.

Wait...

Teen guest stars galore! With only four members left, it's time for the Teen Titans to hold a recruitment drive! Who will make the cut, and who will be sent packing? Who will refuse to even show up, and who will bring a boatload of trouble with them?

Please refuse to show up, Steph. Please.

Also, it is hilarious the Teen Titans only has four members left. Who would join a team who loses members at that rate?

Edit: I'd love to have Steph on the team if she did this every time Tim started whining:



But alas, that would require good writing, and happy funny things being associated with the Teen Titans, and we can't have that. I imagine Tim and Steph's interactions in the issue will be more like this:

Tim: OMG YOU LIED TO ME ABOUT BEING DEAD I HATE YOU.
Steph: ...

Sean Mckeever's Sentinel is great. I've never read anything else of his that I liked.

I've always thought Tim should do more work for Oracle. He is a BIRD after all.

I was actually thinking...if popular speculation is correct, in that after RIP Dick and Damien are going to be Batman and Robin for a while, maybe Tim will just be relegated to Teen Titans, which would make it convenient for him to work for Oracle.

I know I'm a huge minority here, but I love Zatara. It's funny watching his arrogance and selfishness and jerkness. He's like the polar opposite of Steph.

Also HOLY CRAP MISFIT! I love you Charlie! You are my fictional DC girlfriend and you are appearing in a title that I can actually *buy* ! It makes sense having her there too, she's emotionally stable, kind of naive, and has magic, a few things no other Titans do.

Where's the cover from? I've been looking at dccomics.com and I can't see it there. And who's the dude with the sword and the girl with the staff?

I've been wanting to read B.B. for a while. I'm going to a city with a comic store fairly soon, is it in TPB form?

It's on newsarama. The cover I mean.

Misfit didn't wear her mask in the last issue of BoP, either, when she came down to meet Infinity. Granted they were kinda on home turf, but still. Weird and stupid.

I think it would make sense for both Speedy and Misfit to join up, since they're both west coast-based. Having Spoiler on there too would be cool. Increasing her exposure and having her interact with more characters could make her more relevant now, beyond being a supporting character for Robin.

Someone just pointed this out for me. Damn the logic!

The idea of Steph or Traci 13 getting anywhere near this particular incarnation of the Titans is a bit... unnerving.

If he harms either of them to make their boyfriends angst, there will be hell to pay.

I remember an issue where they were recruiting for the Teen Titans and Spoiler didn't try out, but she showed up just to watch the fiasco. She briefly met Arsenal. I need to dig that issue up again...

In what issue was the moping pic from?

That cover is interesting. Tim looks like the 50 foot boy!

As for the coloring, I don't think the person who draws and the person who colors is the same. I recall asking someone about the Robin 80 page giant and why Dana Winters was suddenly blonde. The artist said that he forgot to note to the colorist that she was a brunette. But don't you think the colorist should've known that or that the editor should've known and caught it? Sheesh.
