Listen, I’m a grown woman. I’m a mother. My days are much more about packing lunches and delivering treatises on why it’s really equally easy to put your underwear in the hamper as to throw it on the floor, plus hitting the hamper has the added bonus of keeping my head from exploding. My point is, I do not have a huge amount of my time and attention invested in cartoons, really.
Except for Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends. Because, well, that’s brilliant. And Teen Titans, because that was also brilliant, before it was rudely cancelled. But at least after Teen Titans the television series was axed, I discovered Teen Titans Go!, the comic book series. That helped, a little.
Except that now it turns out that Teen Titans Go! is in danger of cancellation, as well:
We learned from a source close to DC Comics that “Teen Titans Go!” may actually go under, and J. Torres has confirmed it. This comes as a huge surprise since the series is actually the DC Comics’ best selling all-ages series. It has done a great job of carrying on the cancelled show’s adventures, as well as introducing many new fans and kids alike to comics and the Titans. According to our source, the cut-off issue for “Teen Titans Go!” hasn’t been confirmed yet, but we’re at least guaranteed up to the last solicitation (TTG #44 out in June, featuring Red Raven). Sadly, the end may come sooner after that than you’d think.
Why? Why?? I’m starting to take this personally, I tell you. Hmph.
TitansGo.net recommends contacting DC Comics directly to voice your disappointment and potentially save the series:
Write letters to:
Dan DiDio (and/or Tom Palmer Jr.)
c/o DC COMICS
1700 Broadway NYC, NY 10019
[Edited to add: Butho from TitansGo.net is now suggesting addressing mail to "Johnny DC" as well, to basically hit all related DC Comics departments. Thanks for the tip, Butho!]
Go tell DC Comics to knock it off. The world needs its Titans. Heck, even I need them, as a break from my mundane life as a mom. And haven’t I suffered enough loss already? I mean, for someone who really doesn’t care about cartoons? Ahem.
