DC Rebirth has been a success for the most part. It stopped a run of market dominance for Marvel, even if only for a little, and some of the comics have been critical successes. Given my limited time, I've had a hard time keeping up with all of the Rebirth titles, so when DC Comics gives me a review copy of one of the trades, I'm going to give it a shot. Initially, I was going to go with The Flash, but then Nightwing came across my desktop.

TALES OF THE TEEN TITANS #50 February 1985 I know this column is turning into an episode of "I love the 80's" but this was my childhood and so much of that decade was just plain good comics, and for the past 15 years, it seems that Marvel and DC keep going back to the well on this era. Take the Teen Titans, for example. While they go back to the 1960's, if you ask critics about the high point of their history, you will invariably get an answer placing the Wolfman/Perez run near the top of any list. When the Teen Titans made their way into animation, the team chosen to represent them was a variation of this team, with Changeling, aka Beast Boy, Raven, Dick Grayson's Robin, Cyborg and Starfire forming a core, with the storylines for the their first animated series taking liberally from this same period. In deciding which issue from this period I wanted to review, my first instinct was to pick an issue from the Judas Contract, but given the depth of the Terra storyline, I opted not to review part of a story. Instead, I went for the culmination of a sub-plot, namely the 50th issue anniversary special, the Wedding of Donna Troy. I came close to going with "Who Is Donna Troy?" but given the mess that Crisis on Infinite Earths made with Donna Troy's origin, I instead wanted to go with a comic that was almost entirely positive.
