I've always wanted to try this series from DC/Capstone and am pleased to finally get the chance. Written for the youngest crowd, these are easy to read and feature multiple 1-4 page vignettes like the olden day "kiddie comics". While none of the stories are actually related there are a couple of themes that run through some of them. One being the appearance of the Fearsome Five trying to cause our heroes some trouble and the other is stories which feature Terra and her love for Superman vs Beast Boy and his crush on Terra. Cute little stories. Great art. I'm always pleased with Art Baltazar's work. Lovely intro to comics for the beginning reader. Listed at a 2.5 RL.

Not quite so entertaining as the previous book I read "Tiny Titans vs. the Fearsome Five". Follows the same format of 1-4 page vignettes as found in old "kiddie comics". This volume however has no unifying theme between the stories except that some of them take place in the school room and there is one running joke that is replayed later in the book. Still ... the stories are cute, we get to know the characters, their relationships and personalities. Great art as usual from this team. Lovely intro to comics for the beginning reader.
