I enjoyed this but it’s basically a cut and pasted copy of just about all the other issues and what the cartoon had to offer. The humor is there, along with all of the characters are on point. As a result, I am looking forward to seeing what shenanigans these young super hero’s get themselves into in future releases. Since I am new to this series here are my quick thoughts on the team composition. staying close the series and previous releases all our favorite characters are present, Robin now Damian Wayne, Starfire, Kid flash, Raven and Beast Boy. Sadly no Cyborg but Beast Boy’s presence in this definitely shines without his metallic friend.
In Teen Titans #6 Beast boy invites a local news reporter, Bonnie Chung to come shine some light on Teen Titan Tower and interview the team. Within minutes she is Kidnapped by someone or something. Due to that, it’s up to our Teen Titans to spring into action and find her. A great introduction to the characters we know and love. Leaves you wondering who took Bonnie, What dangers lay ahead. I will miss Cyborg and Beast Boy’s friendship from the show, however, we do see some new ones forming here. Also, we see Aqualad make his appearance in search of somewhere he can fit in. Perhaps Jackson Hyde will be a suitable replacement for Cyborg.
The art here is rather enjoyable, Pham’s pencils really walk that line between realism and cartoony. It never feels like it is trying to be the cartoon show, but it does have welcome traces of it. Pair that with Gawbadgers’s inks and Charalampidis’s colors, you get very clean artwork, it really works for this series. In all I enjoyed this comic and look forward to the next issue.
