Comics this week
The Green Team: Teen Trillionaires #7- I admit; I was going to drop Teen Trillionaires but when I heard that DC was cancelling the title, it was a case of "why not finish the whole series"? #7 is a showcase of the good and the bad of the series. The action was kinetic with artist Ig Guara putting in some good clean work while writer Art Baltazar and Franco keep the story quick and fast. At the end of the issue, I still have no idea about the characters that make up the Teen Trillionaires. Commodore, Cecilia, JD and gang are practically interchangeable and this failure of character development is the main problem of the series. At the start of the series, the writers took chances with the characters but halfway it stopped and the series morph into an action series. This change in tone was a problem the series never recovered from.
