OUT OF THE SHADOWS
The Dark Crisis is over, and the Justice League is no more. Now, a new team must rise and protect the Earth…Titans, go! The Teen Titans are ready to grow up. Each member joined as a much younger hero, certain that one day they’d be invited to join the Justice League. But the time has come for them not to join the League…but to replace it! Are the no-longer-teen heroes ready for the big leagues? Danger lurks around every corner as heroes and villains alike challenge the new team before they’ve even begun. Will the DCU ever be the same? Find out in this landmark first issue brought you by the all-star creative team of Tom Taylor (Nightwing, DCeased) and Nicola Scott (Wonder Woman Historia, Earth 2)!
After the world was saved from the Dark Crisis, the Justice League disbanded, leaving the Earth unprotected. However, a new team has risen to take their place: the Teen Titans. These young heroes, who had once dreamed of joining the Justice League, must now step up and protect the world on their own.
In Titans #1, written by Tom Taylor with art by Nicola Scott and Annette Kwok, we see the team come together to face their first challenge. Beast Boy, Cyborg, Donna Troy, Nightwing, Raven, Starfire, and The Flash must learn to work together and overcome their differences in order to protect the world.
The issue sets up an interesting dynamic between the team members, as they are all trying to find their place in the world. Nightwing is struggling with the responsibility of leading the team, while Raven is dealing with the darkness within her and her love for Beast Boy, while Donna Troy is struggling with her own past.
The art by Scott and Kwok is stunning, with each panel beautifully detailed. The action scenes are exciting and dynamic, with the team working together to take down their enemies.
Overall, Titans #1 is an excellent start to the new series. It sets up an intriguing premise and gives us a group of characters who are already fan favorites. The creative team of Taylor, Scott, and Kwok have done an excellent job of bringing these characters to life, and I can’t wait to see where the story goes from here.
Titans #1 is available on our weekly new comic wall and it can also be placed on your pull list.
