Big news out of DC comics and @dandidio1 says so: can you say : Tiny Titans?
— Franco (@awyeahfranco) October 12, 2013
TINY TITANS by Art Baltazar and Franco launched their kids line that was a welcome break from the grim ‘n’ gritty of the main line for a while, but despite engaging kids and their parents, it was canceled after 50 issues. (I still gets friends with kids asking me if I can get copies of it for their young readers.)
But now it’s on its way back, as shown by the above tweet from Franco.
Baltazar and Franco have become a cottage industry of their own since the first TITANS gig, with variants for Hellboy and Dynamite, and their own Aw Yeah line of all-ages comics. While the exact nature of the TINY TITANS return hasn’t been revealed, it’s another sign that DC is looking to widen their demographic.
