Two stories in a single comic book seems the norm these days for all-ages books. Not that that’s a bad thing, because epic multi-chapter adventures will never hook younger readers. It would be like handing War & Peace to a 9-year-old.


Story #1 features the Titans in a battle of the bands against Punk Rocket, whose musical tastes fill that tiny void between racket electronic feedback. Is the victor in doubt? Well, SURE – when Robin is jammin’ to his flute. (I never was a Jethro Tull fan).


Story #2 is that time-honored teen tradition featured in countless John Hughes movies – the prom. It’s all Starfire’s idea, but getting the others to go along requires a blend of peer pressure (another time-honored teen tradition), feminine wiles, and blackmail.


It’s good to see Teen Titans Go! is not limited to a simple corner of the DCU. References are made to HIVE and Speedy, suggesting there’s a whole other animé universe fans of the show have yet to see. And that’s okay; I’d just as soon it stay that way.
