Teen Titans Go! #1

Given the success of the Cartoon Network show I'm surprised it's taken this look for DC to put out a Teen Titans Go! monthly comic. In the spirit of the animated series (and allowing DC to release each half issue as a separate digital comic), the new series features two stories set in the Titans Tower. Fans of the cartoon should enjoy the comics' wacky antics as well.

The first story from writer Sholly Fisch and artist Ben Bates features an investigation into who is stealing Cyborg's sandwiches from the Titans refrigerator. Although Robin's investigative methods don't turn up anything, the discovery of Raven's demonic pizza monster answers several questions.

The back-up story from writer Merrill Hagan and Jorge Corona plays on Robin's obsessively-compulsive natures as the Boy Wonder and Beast Boy get into a bet while playing miniature golf. As often happens in the cartoon, the situation gets far out of control and gets the Titans banned from the golf course for life. Worth a look.

[DC, $2.99]
