Comic Cover Of The Week: Teen Titans #16


“Why do you do this to me DC… why!?”  *shakes fist angrily at sky*  “I mean, don’t I already buy enough of your monthly comics, trades, statues, t-shirts, action figures, posters, toys etc, without you tempting me with yet another astonishing piece of cover art on a title that isn’t even included in my mammoth monthly haul!”

Oh hi there, you may have caught me having a slight rant there… sorry about that, but you see I have just got back from my bi-monthly visit to the local comic-book emporium to pick up my staggeringly huge pile of monthly titles (I actually buy so many that whenever the shop’s proprietor sees me coming, he smiles with contented glee at the prospect of closing the shop early because I have almost wiped him out of DC merchandise… again!) Now, usually after handing over my life savings to the comic-book guy, I peruse the shelves before leaving, and what do I spot… a  sensational Starfire cover on this months Teen Titans, dammit, it’s Starfire which means I am under an obligation to buy it… *sobs into wallet*

Don’t get me wrong, I really do like the Teen Titans, but I just don’t have enough money, time, or space to buy everything, so certain monthlies I have to begrudgingly let go, and Titans is one of those… yet, I love the character of Starfire so much, that I am predisposed to buy literally everything that she’s involved in. Luckily this specific Titans issue is a standalone title, a one shot story, meaning there is no need to read the previous fifteen issues to understand what in X’Hal is going on… so, phew!

The other reason, apart from the sterling cover that made me HAVE to buy this particular Titans issue, is the fact that one of her co-creators… the legendary Marv Wolfman is the writer for this issue, and ooh, it’s a doozy, believe me…

An unseen villain has taken over the citizens of San Francisco with one target in mind… Starfire! Can Kori and her teammates figure out a cure for the masses before they lose control of their minds and bodies forever? Find out in this one shot epic by the mythical Marv Wolfman!

  1. I’m reading the New Teen Titans Omnibus Vol 1 right now. Friggin’ great stuff! Wolfman and Perez rocked that series for years. LOVE IT! Simply one of the best.

    • Perez will always be immortalised for his untouchable run on Wonder Woman, and Wolfman for his classic Batman stories, but together they gave the World… Starfire, and for that I am eternally grateful!! Enjoy the omnibus, my friend. 🙂
