Teen Titans/Comic Con

So, I just got finished reading "Teen Titans #49," the first comic I picked to read this week, due to the fact that #50 will basically re-load the series and I wanted to see how they led into it.

And while the issue was kinda confusing and kinda crappy -- the art kinda stunk and the story wrapped up waaaay too sugary -- the intriguing part of the issue turned out to be the DC Nation page, which is equipped with a DC schedule at Comic Con Thursday-Sunday.

The biggest panels? Thursday at 12:15 p.m. there is a "Countdown" panel, Friday at 6 p.m. a "DC Nation" panel, and Saturday at 1:30 p.m. "DCU: New Worlds Order."

And remember, portions of Comic Con will be shown on the G4 Network on Thursday and Friday.

Oh, but back to Titans for a minute. I'm going to spoil the ending here -- Robin and Wonder Girl kiss again. Now, forget for a minute the fact that Tim and Cassie are a horrible match and Tim would never do this to his best buddy dead Superboy -- I'm more concerned with the fact that over in Robin's own title, he's crushing on a non-powered girl in his high school named Zoanne (I think).

Ordinarily I would attribute this to bad editing, not communicating one writer's plans to another -- but for now both Teen Titans and Robin is being written by Adam Beechen! Sure, he'll be off both books real soon, but still, if you are trying to give Tim a love interest in his own book, don't have him hookin' up with Cassie in another book! Have a sense of continuity! Unless we never hear about Tim liking Zoanne again, this is some piss-poor writing.
