Teen Titans Go! Digital Issue #20: “Last Pizza”

Written by Amy Wolfram
Illustrated by Dario Brizuela
Colored by Jeremy Lawson
Lettered by Wes Abbott

We’ve all been there: you’re hanging out with your friends, eating some pizza, when you get to the last slice and have to engage in a no-holds-barred tournament where only the last man standing, having proven his mettle and resourcefulness, can truly lay claim to the last piece. Classic scenario, but it’s pizza so it’s worth it.

Soooooo worth it.
Soooooo worth it.

The Titans find themselves in such a situation this month, and it goes about as well as you’d expect.

Raven, how dare y... actually, sushi's pretty great too.

Transported to the Pizza Dome, our heroes are pitted against each other for dibs on the final slice. As expected, everyone is pumped for such a title, except for Raven who thinks it’s stupid.

Sounds about right.

I don't know if this is a dream or a nightmare, and I don't care.

Amy Wolfram’s scripts are hit or miss, but while there isn’t much to this story, it’s solid enough. The lines aren’t immensely quotable or anything, but the sheer ridiculousness of the entire situation makes for a good time.

The art from Dario Brizuela and Jeremy Lawson is bright and colorful, fitting into the aesthetic of the show. Like the writing, nothing here is really amazing, but it’s good and better than serviceable.

At $.99 it might be a hard sell on its own, but packaged physically with the pretty good previous installment it’s worth checking out.

Oh, there’s also the definitive etiquette in a “last slice scenario”:

So it’s educational too!

Recommended if:

  • You enjoy the Teen Titans Go! show.
  • You have kids and want to read something with them.
  • Come on guys: pizza.

Overall: More silliness, more of what you’d expect. It’s innocent, harmless, and kind of dumb, but there are much worse things in the world you could read.

SCORE: 6.5/10
