Titans to encounter more of the same awfulness

On Newsarama, they report that the Titans franchise is about to meet up with more of the same:
Will the Teen Titans roster be settling down soon? a fan asked. Cunningham said that the arc that starts in #72 will “change things slightly in an awful way for our characters...they’re not going to like it.”
And neither is the audience, as sales have come to show.
“There’s a definite plan that Brian and his team are driving towards, and we’re going to get there, but there’s a bumpy road between here and there,” Sattler said.
There's no plan, and the road is worse than bumpy, it's horribly rocky. And at the end of that road is a cliff that, if they haven't tumbled off it yet, they'll be doing so soon enough. All they're doing is driving away more readers, and their method of promotion is part of the problem.

Via Titans Tower Monitor, which has a sales analysis here showing how the series have been losing audience month after month, with Teen Titans doing the worst so far, and the Deathtrap crossover certainly hasn't helped.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
