RandoMonday: Titans #45 (1999)

Here’s a comic chosen at random from my collection.

Not much is very interesting about this issue of Titans. Damage (never a favorite of mine) and Jesse Quick (who was until Titans screwed her up) team up to solve what starts out as a ghost story, but turns into a fight psychic manifestations story. The side story shows that Dick is being a dick when it comes to Jesse, and not much of a friend to Garth, which contributes to my dislike of the story. This series started out so very strong with me, but petered out in the end. What is of note about this issue (and the next) is that Barry Kitson did the plot and breakdowns. I had no idea at that time who Barry Kitson was really. I remember loving his art on L.E.G.I.O.N. (but not paying attention to who was doing the art), and then a few years later on Legion of Super-Heroes and Empire with Mark Waid. A quick search of my comic stash reveals that Kitson cowrote six issues of L.E.G.I.O.N. ’90 and this two-part tale in Titans.

Unfortunately, the best thing in this issue is the ad for Firefly:
