Hey, you!  Yeah, you!  Drop that zero and get with a hero! Yes, I just quoted Cool as Ice. Anyway, zeroes are all over the place this time around as I take a look at Robin #10, which was a Zero Hour crossover that guest starred Dick Grayson (but not the Dick Grayson you’re used to seeing); and Robin #0, which is the lead-in issue to Prodigal.

So it’s the closing of one era and the dawn of another for the Titans as … wait a second, this isn’t a Teen Titans podcast!  This month it is!  Join me as I take a look at Dick Grayson’s final issue as a member of the New Titans as he leaves the team in the hands of Roy Harper, aka Arsenal.  In future episodes, Dick will go on to the “Prodigal” storyline in Batman, but right now it’s time to look at how the Titans go on without him in New Titans #113, 114, and 0; as well as Damage #6, Darkstars #26 and 27, and Showcase ’94 #11.  Plus, I read a letter from nearly 20 years ago!

Taking Flight: Episode #12

285-_7612179

It’s a very special Christmas episode of “Taking Flight” as I put aside all of the Dick Grayson/Jason Todd/Tim Drake drama and take a look at Teen Titans #13 from 1967 for a classic tale worthy of Charles Dickens himself … or at least worthy of Bob Haney. So step into the wayback machine, cool cats, because it’s “The TT’s Swingin’ Christmas Carol!”
