THE WEEK IN COMICS: JAN. 31
It was a very small week for me; those months with five shipping weeks tend to spread everything out. So, I only bought two comics (though I gazed longingly at the newest Astonishing X-Men trade - I'll pick it up soon) and one of those is the latest issue of 52, which I will cover in a separate post in the next few days. The other one? Teen Titans #43.
This issue kicks off the "Titans East" storyline, where longtime enemy Deathstroke (also father of two current Titans) and his new team of Titans begin their assualt about the main Titans. There's some solid character work with various groupings of Titans before the action of the attacks begins. It's obviously the setup for the arc as a whole but it's a solid setup. And Tony Daniel's art has really been growing over the course of his run on the series. It was recently announced that he and writer Geoff Johns will be leaving at the conclusion of the arc - let's hope they go out on a strong note. They're off to a good start.
