*DC: After successful try-outs in Brave & Bold and Showcase, the Teen Titans graduated into their own series in 1966, and at the start, fought oddball menaces in stories with a ‘youth angle’, deemed fitting to their sidekick status. As the series gained momentum, however, that worthy cause was abandoned, and straight, if somewhat kooky, super-heroics became the order of the day, with some of the most off-the-wall villains of the camp era:: The Mad Mod! Honey Bun! Captain Rumble! Ding-Dong-Daddy Dowd! And who can forget the Dickensian duo, Mr. Scrounge and, erm, the other one. ‘Barking’ Bob Haney handled most of the scripts turning out a middle-aged man’s skewed vision of teen argot, while artist Nick Cardy turned in beautiful glowing artwork with some of the most vivid and imaginative covers of the period. Plus he was obviously a little in love with Wonder Girl, as she benefitted most from his artistry, but hey, in the Sixties, everyone was a little in love with Wonder Girl! As the decade progressed, the series shifted through a brief ‘social conscience’ period, with the team abandoning their costumes to operate in civvies, then entering a dark supernatural phase, before being cancelled and revived for a short-lived Seventies series, in which the Joker’s Daughter and Bumblebee joined up, as well as the augmentation of the team with a West Coast branch. (And you thought the Avengers did that first? Ha!) Every single issue of the series from #1 to #53 is now in stock, including many high grade, unmarked cents copies.
