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.

I'd do some bad stuff to Wonder Girl.

And Beast Boy is green again, thank god
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 4/8/2014, 2:59 PM
Wth did they do to Raven??
grif - 4/8/2014, 3:00 PM
sick art
staypuffed - 4/8/2014, 3:03 PM
Yes, Rocafort finally back on a book.
groundrunner15 - 4/8/2014, 3:06 PM
Good. They screwed up Bart (sorry bar-tor) majorly in the new 52. Maybe they can fix it.
redrobin1986 - 4/8/2014, 3:06 PM
I'm glad Beast Boy is green again, but I hope they explain what he is green and no longer red.
batcheeks8 - 4/8/2014, 3:07 PM
I wonder if Wally West is going to join them once he is introduced.
wookiefit - 4/8/2014, 3:09 PM
ummm! what?

at least the art looks kinda cool.

not liking Raven's new look.
InfiniteMonkey - 4/8/2014, 3:18 PM
Robin's got wings! Wooooo!

Wonder Girl. Wow.
Vegeta - 4/8/2014, 3:19 PM
Esti Ginzburg for Wonder Girl!

Am I the only one who dislikes Bunker? I feel like the only reason he's there is to make sure people know that DC likes homosexuals
Monitorearthprime - 4/8/2014, 3:30 PM
DC screwed up there universe and now they are trying to fix there mistakes by starting over again with TT 1. And they wonder why I stopped reading there books, I cannot figure it there new stories.
osideous - 4/8/2014, 3:30 PM
yeah bunker's character is lame. just go back to the Teen Titans team we know and love.
Fastestmanalive - 4/8/2014, 3:40 PM
Bad move.

I love TT and was looking forward to a total reboot now that that atrocious run ended and starting fresh. Keeping the same cast is dumb cuz people will think this is a continuation of the last awful series or at least have a bad enough taste in their mouth to avoid this
Fastestmanalive - 4/8/2014, 3:42 PM
Only good thing from this is after reading the interview he says that the gap for teenage Flash will be filled soon.

Fastestmanalive - 4/8/2014, 3:44 PM
That was the worst. Impulse/Bart Allen is such a great character and they totally ruined him by destroying everything we liked about the original character.
CaptainAmerica1945 - 4/8/2014, 3:55 PM
Personally I feel like DC really screwed up their new universe. I was reading about 4-6 books a week and I dropped them all. I picked up a few TPB's but was not impressed with any of them except Green Arrow which has been great under the direction of Jeff Lemire, Andrea Sorrentino.
storyteller - 4/8/2014, 3:56 PM
Bunker is basically the Green Lantern of the group.

But I do hope they rectify the big issue that Wondergirl needs to interact with Wonder Woman.

Also got love how her boobs are ready to pop out of corset without a corset chest,
LEOSTRATOR - 4/8/2014, 4:04 PM
I'm all for any book with Rockafort penciling the pages, but what's up with the spider woman chick?
BlackFlash - 4/8/2014, 4:08 PM
I love Ravens look but not for Raven if that makes any sense.
dcnoob122 - 4/8/2014, 4:13 PM
YEESSS!!! Finally no lobdell to stink up the place
Deadpoolisawesome - 4/8/2014, 4:21 PM
New 52 why must you suck outside of Green Arrow as of isue 17,Batman, and Aquaman?
dcnoob122 - 4/8/2014, 4:28 PM
@deadpoolisawesome why does it suck?
adamant877 - 4/8/2014, 4:33 PM
Anyone else but me think that "Bunker" is a little too obvious as a stand-in for Terra?..
HorrorPilot - 4/8/2014, 4:39 PM'd do bad stuff to "WonderMan"! LOL
HiroTheGeek013 - 4/8/2014, 5:21 PM
Wow Wonder Girl looks bad, really bad. Plus who the hell is Bunker?
englandlover77 - 4/8/2014, 5:21 PM
Fail. Using a woman's body front and center to sell the book is offensive.
Robin with wings just looks silly.
Geoff Johns had the best run with TT.
BaneSmash - 4/8/2014, 5:21 PM
Can't wait till all this Hail Hydra bullshit is over........... Get [frick]ing annoying.
Atumbem - 4/8/2014, 5:27 PM
When did Raven join the Shi ar Empire?
Bl00dwerK - 4/8/2014, 5:56 PM
More re-numberings. Thanks...
huckfinnisher - 4/8/2014, 6:10 PM
All these hail hydra gifs are killing me, so out of place in the film.
hero1684 - 4/8/2014, 8:14 PM
Looks stupid
pesmerga44 - 4/8/2014, 8:36 PM
Sorry Raven looks dumb the costume doesn't fit her at all. She looks more like a physical fighter like Robin instead of what she really is big old F for her.
BlackIceJoe - 4/8/2014, 8:56 PM
It's good to see Beast Boy's back to being green. But why couldn't they bring back the real look of Raven too.
BlackIceJoe - 4/8/2014, 9:06 PM
Is it really that hard to just go back to using this version of Raven?

mgeoff88 - 4/8/2014, 9:46 PM
I'm not feeling the look of the new Teen Titans. A guy riding on purple blocks... Really?
