Setting Type: Teen Titans Go! to the Movies

In the interests of laziness, yet again I’m basing a post topic on my children’s viewing choices.

The very first Setting Type feature used the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for inspiration. With an upcoming family outing to Teen Titans Go! to the Movies, I’m going to recommend historical reading picks for the five title heroes.

If you’re not into superhero movies because they’re too serious, brooding and overblown with action set pieces, then you should definitely check it the Teen Titans, because they are none of those things.

These days, I’m obsessed to an inordinate degree by the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. If I’m not watching them with my kids, I’m fending off pleas for TMNT toys or, most painfully of all, searching for pieces of Mega Bloks TMNT sets on the floor. So, in an effort to streamline my time, I’m going to bring the turtles into my blog.
