Baltazar, Aureliani’s Superman Family Adventures coming next May; Tiny Titans ends with #50 [UPDATED]

DC Nation 2012 Free Comic Book Day Super Sampler

Along with the rest of the “Silver” comic books coming on Free Comic Book Day next year, DC Comics announced the DC Nation 2012 Free Comic Book Day Super Sampler, which will feature comics based on their animated series Green Lantern, Young Justice and a new series called Superman Family Adventures. Today on the Source, DC announced the creative team for that book–the Tiny Titans team of Art Baltazar and Franco Aureliani are working on the monthly Superman Family Adventures, which kicks off next May.

“I have been sitting on the edge of my seat, biting my tongue about Superman Family Adventures since Thursday, July 21 at approximately 4 p.m., when Art and Franco came to see me at SDCC and showed me the proposal for this series,” said series editor Kristy Quinn. “Whew. Now, at least, you’re all stuck waiting with me—I was getting lonely sitting at my desk with all this cool stuff I couldn’t share!”

Update: Issue #50 of Tiny Titans will be the final issue, as noted in today’s solicitations. Baltazar and Aureliani have been the creative team on Tiny Titans since DC started publishing it in 2008.



I hope Power Girl is involved in this one. :D

This is great news. Any book with Art Baltazar and Franco Aureliani as the creative team is worth a look. Sounds like a fun Superman book that’s appropriate for all ages. Imagine that.

But if I can just offer one tiny marketing critique: If you’re going to make an announcement like this, how about having a piece of artwork to accompany it that’s specific to the book being announced? Doesn’t seem like so much to ask.

This is the worst news in the world. Tiny Titans is DC’s best monthly series. And now it is soon to be gone.

DC Comics might’ve just as well put out a press release: “Our goal in 2012 is to make Matthew sad.”


I love Art and Franco. Glad to see them getting a new project, and this one sounds great. Sorry to hear that it is the end of their other project though.

I’m going to miss them on Tiny Titans, so very much, but even with that small bit of preview art, I’m excited. Art and Franco can have so much fun with the Superman cliches, the same way they used Tiny Titans to provide meta-commentary on the DCU. This is going to be amazing.
