I’ll take notes as I read it.
First of all, the cover is fantastic. I love the silhouettes of the mentors up above, and he logo is very retro, and the modeling of the characters is great. Subtle lighting. Wow. Great cover.
Oh. I didn’t know this was an Ultimate-style story. Robin’s chatting. Nice.
is that a docked iPhone?
Well, that was okay, I guess. That art was grrrreat, but the story was very brief. Why was Batman acting so crazy? More than a bit out of character. He hit Robin?!
So, Aqualad’s afraid of fish. That’s funny. And Wonder-Girl came to the big city and is a fish out of water herself. Cute.
Cute. But it sure didn’t live up to that great cover.
Also note: My wife, who’s a huge Robin/Nightwing/Titans fan, really loved this issue.
Check-out this great paragraph from J. Caleb Mozzocco’s Every Day Is Like Wednesday. (The emphasis is mine.)
Anyway, like I said, I personally donâ€™t really care. And the reason why is because Karl Kerschl is illustrating this story, and he is illustrating the hell out of it. Amy Wolframâ€™s script could have consisted of 22 pages of the Titans viciously slandering me personally and I would have still enjoyed the hell out of thisâ€”thatâ€™s how good Kerschl is. (He shares are credits with Serge LaPointe and Steph Peru; Iâ€™m assuming at least one of them is responsible for the colors, which are lush, textured and reminiscent of a cell from a high production value 2D animated film).
