Tiny Titans #17

There’s a lot of stuff happening this issue. First, Raven shows off her new book of magic spells by summoning Mr. Mxyzptlk. The gang then repeatedly steals his hat, calls him an elf, and after he disappears, re-summons him over and over, just to wart him. Later, Beast Boy, Robin, and Cyborg match wits with a cow that has stolen Batman’s cape and cowl — and of course, they actually call it the “Battle for the Cow.” Robin later celebrates his birthday as his friends get him a whole bunch of new costumes, ranging from his Earth-2 uniforms, a couple of Tim Drake’s costumes, a couple different Nightwing uniforms (one with a detachable ponytail) and even the Carrie Kelly Robin costume from “The Dark Knight Returns.” And finally, Cyborg gets excluded from a sidekick picnic because he’s not a sidekick.

Verdict: Yet another thumbs up. I still think this is DC’s most consistently fun all-ages comic. As always, it’s full of cute cartooning, funny plots and dialogue, the goofiest sound effects around, and unexpectedly bizarre moments. It’s a great comic for kids of all ages, and it’s also fun for grownups who enjoy a nice fat dose of silliness.
