This. Book. Rocks.


Yeah, yeah, I'm a huge Marvel guy. Never been much of a DC dude, just could never get into the characters. They seemed to lack the personality of the Marvel characters. The last time I was into DC, hardcore, was during the Marv Wolfman/George Perez TEEN TITANS run. In fact, their story "WHO IS DONNA TROY?" would be on the top five list of favorite super books, Marvel or DC.

But nothing else has made me put a DC book on my saver. Or go nuts with excitement when a new issue comes out. There are some really good books there... but nothing to make me yell "YES!!!"

Until TEEN TITANS: YEAR ONE.

I am so unbelievably hooked on this series. The characters are so perfect and the art...? I'm as deeply in love with Karl Kerschl's artwork as I am with Juan Doe's. I mean... this is just gorgeous fucking work.

And then, along with that great art, you get this KILLER story written by Amy Wolfram, who, incidentally, writes for that kick-ass animated series TEEN TITANS GO! Love she writes Aqualad. Give these two a series.

If you're not getting this joy of a book, you're really missing out.
