Book Description

As a part of the acclaimed DC Comics - The New 52 event of September 2011, writer Scott Lobdell (X-Men, The Age of Apocalypse) and artist Brett Booth (JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA) deliver a fresh new take on DC Comics' teen heroes, the Teen Titans.Tim Drake, Batman's former sidekick, is back in action when an international organization called Project N.O.W.H.E.R.E. seeks to capture, kill or co-opt super-powered teenagers. As Red Robin, he's going to have to team up with the mysterious and belligerent powerhouse thief known as Wonder Girl, the hyperactive speedster calling himself Kid Flash and few more all-new teen super-heroes to stand any chance at all against N.O.W.H.E.R.E. But as Superboy meets them for the first time, the Titans have to wonder, is he a friend - or foe?

3.0 out of 5 stars Not MuchHere to Stand Out November 16, 2012
Format:Paperback
This is not your T-E-E-N T-I-T-A-N-S, Teen Titans. In fact, it isn't even the Teen Titans from pre- New 52. Of the New 52 book, this is one of the most changed. And it's not all for the good.

This iteration of the Titans is lead by Tim Drake, Batman's former sidekick, as Red Robin. Starting with issue 1 we find Red Robin immediately and without explanation fighting against an international organization called Project N.O.W.H.E.R.E. that seems to be seeking out super-powered young people to capture and turn to their side or to kill them.

Red Robin is joined by Wonder Girl, a thief with powers derived from stolen artifacts, Kid Flash, a young Flash with an unclear history, and a couple others as the story goes on (and who I don't want to spoil the story arch) working towards finding other super-powered teens and saving them from N.O.W.H.E.R.E.. And one major obstacle stands in their way: Superboy.

For fans of the Teen Titans going all the way back to the late 1980s, like myself, I find the switch to new characters tough to swallow. I'm especially troubled by where some of the characters went (see Starfire in Red Hood and the Outlaws, for instance). Cyborg as a member of Justice League is a good fit, but the move leaves very little to work with here. But as jarring as the switch is, Lobdel does a serviceable job bring a compelling story even though not historically an actual Teen Titans story.

The artwork is on par with the other New 52 titles, which means frankly that it looks like all the others.

Title: The Teen Titans Vol. 1: It’s Our Right to Fight
Publisher: DC
Writer: Scott Lobdell
Artists: Brett Booth (pencils), Norm Rapmund (inks), Andrew Dalhouse (colors), Booth, Rapmund, Dalhouse (covers)
Collects: The Teen Titans #1-7
Price: $14.99

I haven’t been a big fan of the Teen Titans comic books over the years. I’d sample them from time to time to see what’s going on in them, but they never really resonated with me. Part of this comes from the fact that the writing wasn’t all that great, and part of this comes from the fact that the book has long been a collection of “clone” characters: Nightwing instead of Batman, Superboy instead of Superman, Wonder Girl instead of Wonder Woman, Kid Flash instead of Flash, Miss Martian instead of Martian Manhunter, Ravager instead of Deathstroke… and so on and so on. This is a cheap and uncreative way to sell comics, and I much prefer something more original. Still, there have been some good Teen Titans stories over the years, and the comics seem to have a tradition of being some of the more inexpensive collections on the shelves.

This new conception of the team includes the following characters: Tim Drake (aka Red Robin), Miguel Jose Barragan (aka Bunker), Bart Allen (Kid Flash), Cassie Sandsmark (aka Wonder Girl), Celine Patterson (aka Skitter), Conner Kent (aka Superboy), Kiran Singh (aka Solstice) and Danny the Street. Most of these characters have been around for a while, but a few are new. Although I am all for new characters, I can’t say that I’m overjoyed by any of the new characters that were created for the series. Of the new batch, Solstice is my favorite and Bunker is my least favorite.

DC Comics knows how to pull in readers of all fans of their different super heroes to other books. They have the recipe down by now. You spread stories out over different titles and put characters relating to them in new books to attract them. "Teen Titans Volume 1: It's Our Right to Fight" is the perfect example of one of those strategies.

The team is made up of Red Robin, Superboy, Kid Flash, and Wonder Girl. Those ingredients practically guarantee that any reader loyal to Batman, Superman, or Wonder Woman is at some point is going to pick the series up. In order to keep them coming back, you have to provide an engaging storyline. Teen Titans is doing just that and more.

Tim Drake spent years at Batman's side as Robin, the Teen Wonder. When an evil international organization named N.O.W.H.E.R.E begins capturing and killing super-powered teens, Drake takes on the costumed identity of Red Robin to battle them. He soon realizes it's going to take a team of super heroes to battle this deadly and gigantic threat. Red Robin is joined by Kid Flash, Wonder Girl, and a few other meta-human youth to do battle with N.O.W.H.E.R.E.'s ultimate weapon: Superboy.

Each of the characters in the book is given a chance to shine. Red Robin, Superboy, and Kid Flash get more face time, but the other characters are given enough to do to make them interesting as well. One of the big things that garnered attention from many press outlets when Teen Titans was relaunched for the New 52 was the announcement that there would be a gay character. Strangely, the super hero named Bunker professes this in two panels of a 160-page graphic novel. It kind of makes you wonder what the point of the big announcement was.
