‘Teen Titans: Walmart 100-Page Giant #3’ (review)

Written by Dan Jurgens
Illustrated by Scot Eaton
Published by DC Comics

 

Well, this is a disappointment. There’s been some interesting work on the Walmart titles over at DC. So I picked this up with some hopes.

Sadly, it’s flat and completely devoid of much in the way of entertainment. It’s a shame.

This book opens up with the Fearsome Five attacking the Teen Titans in the middle of the street for some reason I couldn’t quite figure out.

And honestly, that’s all that is really there for the story. There seems to be some background plots that I didn’t care to decipher as it seemed superficial and just dumb.

And that’s how the story felt to me: just dumb. Jurgens is a better writer than this! But this book felt like he was talking down to his audience.

The dialogue is trite and silly. We get gems like “Stupid Titans!” as well as many more of the like. It feels like a whole lot of nonsense.

At the end, the Titans and the Fearsome Five have taken a break from fighting. But lucky us! The next issue seems to be more of the same! In fact, the last page alludes to that! Stop please and just reconsider releasing it at all.

The art is nothing great. Eaton just can’t seem to generate much to make it visually interesting. But who can blame him? The story is so monotonous, he must have fallen asleep a few times drawing it.

RATING: F
