Another example of Geoff Johns' irritating dialogue

The following panel was scanned from the Teen Titans trade called "Beast Boys & Girls", and comes from either issue #14 or #15 in 2004:
I don't think that inclusion of the p-word in the lower left box helps this book one bit. Nor would it pass muster in Power Pack. It only serves to make this book all the more unappealing in terms of dialogue. How anyone could think this series ever had any energy when it first began under his scripting I just don't know. It's just another sign of how this volume of Teen Titans is not for young children.

And that's an example of how Johns can write some pretty alienating, colorless dialogue when he wants to, just like how he can write up some pretty alienating acts of mayhem.

Labels: , , ,

How ironic that his Titans weren't made for children, yet he was clearly influenced by the 2003 animated series (e.g., re-modifying Deathstroke as a manipulator, like his animated version, the return of the Doom Patrol, the resurrection of Raven and Mas y Menos actually converted into comic.) Then, of course, we have another modern influences to consider, like with Dr. Light. Depressing. It is living proof how the media vs. the comic canon clash, and quite frequently with both Marvel and DC. Depressing, as, frankly, the animated version, despite its flaws, was far more entertaining.

Waitaminute. I thought the Greek gods were dead now because of the Wonder Woman reboot.

  • 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.
