All throughout June, I’ll spotlight a different web site about comic books.. Like with the month of independent comics, the month of LGBT comics and last month’s month of webcomics, I figure I will let you comic book site/blog owners out there suggest your comic book web site (or blog) for spotlight during this month. So if you want me to spotlight your comic book site, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Today we look at Bill Walko’s Titans Tower, which is by far the best website about the Teen Titans that there is. Heck, it is up there as one of the best websites about ANY comic book that there is!
If there is a piece of news about the Teen Titans, Titans Tower has it.
If there is an interview about the Teen Titans, Titans Tower has it.
If there is a Teen Titan, Titans Tower has a bio of that character. Heck, forget bios, Titans Tower has these elaborate character pages for pretty much any notable memebr of the Teen Titans (any generation) with character history, oowers and weapons, essential issues for that character plus articles/interviews about that character, almost always containing interesting and little-known information about the character, often from the creators of the character in question!!
Plus, the design of these character pages is excellent, as the conceit is that you’re looking at the Titans Tower monitor. Check it out…
And the amazing thing is that while I’ve pretty much described all the stuff that most people would look for in a site (character information, articles, interviews, news), Walko delivers a TON more – information on the Titans in other forms of media, information about the Titans toys, a gallery of drawings of the Titans (including some by Walko himself, who is a fine artist in his own right) and even more random stuff that I haven’t mentioned (this isn’t even counting the various “Easter Eggs” hidden in the site!).
So yeah, Titans Tower is a great website.
