COMICS: DC's New TEEN TITANS Debut This July
Their first New 52 run will come to an end this month, but DC's Teen Titans won't be gone too long. In July, writer Will Pfeifer and artist Kenneth Rocafort will relaunch with a team that includes Red Robin, Wonder Girl, Raven, Bunker, and Beast Boy. Check out the first cover after the jump.
Because this team isn't really too different from the last one, many have wondered why DC bothered with the relaunch at all. Newsarama put the question to Will Pfeifer, who explains the thought process.
"Putting the #1 on the cover of our first issue accomplished a couple of things: First of all, it draws attention to the book. There are so many comic books competing for the readers’ attention now – not just with other books but with videogames, TV and that little thing called “the internet” – that anything we can do to lure some eyes to our cover is something I’m all far. But even more importantly, that #1 lets the reader know that this isn’t just a continuation of the other series. Yes, the Titans are the same heroes, and no, we’re not going to kick things off with a year of origin stories, but we are heading in a new direction and exploring some new themes."
Pfeifer also hits that there will be teen heroes from the Superman and Flash families joining the roster further down the line. For the interview in full, click the link below.
