The bottom line: absolutely the best Titans related material I've read, and I've read pretty much all of them.

OK, I admit, it started 6 months ago with the Teen Titans cartoon. I bought the DVD as a sort of joke after seeing an episode on TV. It wasn't long until I realised it was the epitome of all that is awesome. After exhausting every possible episode, I began looking at other options to satisfy my Titans needs, and dipped into comic books for the first time. I researched the DC Universe, and ended up purchasing all the archive collections of Wolfman/Perez's seminal 80's 'The New Teen Titans', which serves as the source material for my beloved cartoon. I also got all of Geoff Johns' amazing relaunch, the current 'Teen Titans' (though I prefer the current writer, Sean McKeever), as well as reading all of 52 and the Starfire-starring 'Countdown to Adventure' by Adam Beechen (which was great). Also purchased were 'Tiny Titans', and J. Torres' adaptation of the cartoon, entitled 'Teen Titans Go!'. After all of those, I moved onto Judd Winick's 'Outsiders' run, to satiate my Nightwing cravings. And now here I am, at Winick's 'Titans'. And boy, did it ever blow my mind.

This series is effectively a sequel to Wolfman/Perez's 'The New Teen Titans'. It also ties nicely into everything else I read - it finally shows what happened to the Titans who originally made up Geoff Johns' original 'Teen Titans' relaunch lineup (Raven, Beast Boy, Cyborg etc), who eventually all but disappeared from that series after the Infinite Crisis. It also directly refers to Starfire's life post-'Countdown to Adventure' as well as Winick's 'Outsiders'. It even references Wolfman's dire 2008 mini-series 'Spotlight on Raven'.

It ain't easy recapturing lightning in a bottle. In the early '80s, Marv Wolfman and George Perez served up THE NEW TEEN TITANS, which out of the blue was catapulted to the top of DC's best-selling list and became one of my favorite comic books ever. Back then I read my NEW TEEN TITANS before my X-MEN (and you guys remember how insanely huge X-MEN was back then, right?). I truly fell in love with the characters, especially Robin, Starfire, and Garth. We all know that Perez was and is the Shiznit, but respect also to Marv Wolfman, who spun some seriously classic stories. Off the top of my head, I recall "Who Is Donna Troy?" (Donna hires Robin to unearth her past), "A Day In The Life" (where the Titans go about their personal lives), "We are Gathered Here Today..." (Donna and Terry's wedding), the epic Trigon story arc, the awesome Judas Contract, and, yep, even that time when the Titans had a "crossover" with the DNAgents. Thru the years I've tried to keep up with the various incarnations of the Teen Titans but, honestly, this title was never quite able to recapture the Wolfman/Perez mojo.

Plot SPOILERS now...

Very recently, though, the DC bigwigs decided to see if the fanbase still lurks out there for the original New Teen Titans. The revival started with a oneshot issue, TITANS EAST SPECIAL #1, in which Cyborg attempts to mentor yet another fresh batch of Teen Titans. There's really no point in listing these new members as, after a training session gone horribly, horribly effed up, all of them get taken out of commission. Old Vic Stone, Cyborg himself, is blown up real good (which actually later leads to a funny Beast Boy line).

Before writing this review I was sending a text to my friend how I felt about this book and i quote its " tragic, unlikable, mean spirited, amateurishly written, character butchering, badly inconsistent drawing, annoying, all around stupid, and cliche story". And I mean every word of this, I love the geoff johns teen titans where he takes these characters and makes them not only likable but also something of a proud torch to be received. This garbage takes the torch and drowns it in a fine yellow unmentionable liquid. I no longer trust the authors associated with this book and has convinced me to seriously limit and be suspicious of any dc book that is not written by a good trusted author (such as geoff johns). I recommend this only for people who like reading bad garbage books, and what not to do to write a story based on the legacy of god characters.

"An all-powerful enemy from the team's past has returned with a vengeance, aiming to destroy anyone who's ever been a Titan. With their superhero successors caught in the line of fire, the original Titans must reunite to stop the onslaught before the Titans fall forever..." -- Back Cover

This review many contain slight spoilers, but the intention is not to reveal the story or the storyline just to let you know features of the book.

I really enjoyed "Old Friends". I started reading The New Teen Titans when I was 13 years old, and am now 41. I grew up with these characters and cared about them like they were special friends. They helped me get through my own personal journey of puberty, adolescence, and the trials of teenage years. I continued to read the stories as I became an adult, and am glad to see these graphic novels of many of the new storylines that help weave the team that I grew to love back together.

Chapter 1: The Fickle Hand - Go East, Young Man Part 1
This chapter focuses on the original group of Titans, and how they worked together as a team in the "golden days". The first part features a Golden Age story (that is actually new) that features The Joker and Bizarro. The second part focuses on Cyborg working with Titans East while recruiting the original group to help him. The Art was spectacular!

Chapter 2: The Fickle Hand - Today I Settle All Family Business Part 2
The original Titans are attacked by a malevolent force from their past. The story line was cohesive and helped provide a stimulus for regrouping. Storyline features appearances from Batman and Titans East.

Chapter 3: Family Affair, Part 1 - All Together Now...
This was a great written story.
