In DC, Reviews by T. Andrew WahlLeave a Comment

“The story … showed the Amazons of Paradise Island used, perhaps for the first time in a very long time, as real warriors and not just mannequins wearing flimsy long white gowns.”Writer Marv Wolfman
(From in the Foreword to The New Teen Titans Archives: Volume 2, November 2004

Review

Title: “When Titans Clash”
Synopsis: The Teen Titans race to Paradise Island hoping to save Changeling – and end up battling a Titan of lore!

Writer: Marv Wolfman
Penciler: George Pérez
Inker: Romeo Tanghal

It’s a big coincidence that the Titans of Greek myth escape their 30,000-plus-year imprisonment just as DC’s Titans are visiting Paradise Island. But, get past that and this issue is a lot of fun. Writer Marv Wolfman clearly has an affection for Greek mythology and has a blast kit-bashing these characters with the DC toy box. This story also brings the female Teen Titans to the fore, and it’s fascinating seeing them interact with Wolfman’s warrior take on the Amazons of Paradise Island. Throw in strong art from George Pérez, and this one’s a delight.

Grade: A-

Cool factor: New Titans + Old Titans = Plenty of cool.
