A New York Times Best Seller!

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?

PROS: I really enjoyed the colourful, '90s-inspired art and a lot of the repartee. Also, the protagonists are considerably more diverse than a pre-New 52 version would likely have been, so that's refreshing.

CONS: As with many "team" titles, time and space on the pages gets invested on an awful lot of characters over a few short issues with the end result that a few (Kid Flash, Wonder Girl, Bunker) seem well-developed and interesting whereas others (Skitter, Solstice [a character so on the margins they can't be bothered to spell her name right consistently, at least in the paperback copy I read], Grymm and the other antagonists) just seem to take up space and time, perhaps so they can be more fully utilized later.

After leaving Batman, Tim Drake as Red Robin, finds himself the target of N.O.W.H.E.R.E, an organization determined to either capture, control, or kill all young metahumans. Red Robin quickly realizes he, and many others, are in over their heads. Whether they actively seek each other out, or stumble upon each other, these young heroes must unite and become the Teen Titans. Things happen at a rather steady pace for a story focused on teen superheroes, especially considering the energetic style with is vibrant assortment of colours. This speaks volumes about the quality of the writing, and the layout of the panels. Each character is designed with a flare that will capture interest. Solstice in particular has a spectacular, and unique stormcloud look. The creative team also does some great things with Kid Flash. He speaks as fast as he moves, shown by a stream of speech bubbles that follow all his actions within a panel. In one example of a double spread, his actions within a split second are numbered. He is quirky, and very intelligent, but inexperienced, meaning he sometimes messes up. All of them have a lot of growing to do, and in many ways they are shown as a bunch of misfits that have a long way to go before they can be an effective team, not to mention superheroes.
