“Who Is Donna Troy?” still packs a punch

Monday, November 25th, 2013

We got linked from an article over at CBR and I followed the link. Just seeing two scans of  New Teen Titans by Wolfman and Perez on that page managed to get me to tear up.  Dang, but that comic was powerful.

New Teen Titans #38, “Who Is Donna Troy?”, remains one of the best examples of a done-in-one 22-page killer story.  I’ve never met anyone who didn’t like it.  I’m sure there must be such people, but even they would have to concede that it is well-done and an effective use of the sequential art form.  For kids born in the 1970s, this is the “Star Wars” of comic books.

And it’s also kind of the pinnacle.  Half a decade later, the very same comic book team is doing “Who Is Wonder Girl?” and it takes five issues to tell and it’s no comparison.
