Tiny Titans?

Okay, you know, I have to say Tiny Titans looks impossibly cute.

I don't really have any interest in reading it mind you, (I'm really more the "Beheadings! Explosions! Yay!" type of comic fan, which I'm sure shocks you. When I'm not gushing endlessly about continuity porn.)

Also, really, I'm fairly indifferent to that era of the Titans. Except for Wally. But Wally's Wally. Also occasionally Starfire. But I digress.

But it does look pretty damn cute.

It reminds me of Muppet Babies, really. So it's likely it'll catch on for kids.

Personally though I can't wait for the merchandizing. I may not have any interest in reading it, but those would make the cutest t-shirts. Donna Troy has a little golden JUMP ROPE. Hehehe.

Actually, it suddenly brings to mind a tiny version of the Green Lantern Corps (Hey, Kyle was a Titan for a while). Of course, I think this version of the Corps would be a bunch of really really annoyingly perky kids wearing green and with the first letters of their name on the shirts instead of a Lantern. They'd be like the annoying pep squad from Hell.

The Green Lantern oath with pom-poms? ("Give me an "In Brightest Day!")

...heheh. A Tiny Titans-esque version of Guy Gardner would be the best icon EVER.

    I don't know if this counts as such, but the Legion cartoon tie-in comic is having an issue where they meet the Teen Lantern Corps. And their leader is a girl who looks like Guy's descendant in appearance and sass quotient.

    That said, I find Tiny Titans to be adorable. I've gotta write up something comparing the positive reception to this concept (and it's been overwhelmingly positive) to the "You're supposed to hate this" tone of the Teeny Toony Titans parody from back near the Titans Hunt (which was actually cute but not as adorable as this). Considering the introductory circumstances they have planned, it's all very similar.

    I actually AM a big fan of cute, yet well written comics. And what little I've seen of Tiny Titans is a giant Meh. Of course I could change my mind if I see more and it looks to be full of awesome, but I'm doubtful on that...

    Two thoughts on the Teen GL Corps:

    1. A GL Academy where a select group of teens would train to become GLs. This could be fun.

    2. Guy Gardner doing a stint as a teacher/professor at the GL Academy. Professor Guy?

    The thought of a teensy Guy Gardner fills me with the delight. Remember that story with widdle Warrior? I think it was an annual, but it was a riot.

    The infant Kid Devil is the single cutest thing I've ever seen (next to my children). I really want him on a t-shirt for my youngest son.

    This is definitely going onto the reading list for eldest Raggirl, who is currently too squeamish even for the current DC kids' line, which is too violent for her.

    In terms of comics, so far she is only interested in the Peanuts cartoon books from the 1950s and, honestly, I can't even explain half of the jokes to her.
