From what I read at s_d I'm not the only who was left worried after that Teen Titans #1 announcement DC made yesterday.
However, artist Brett Booth answered some questions at his blog and gave out a (little) bit more information on the new title, which might help calming down a bit and clear a few things about the characters.

You can read everything in the comments at Brett's blog, but the quintessence is behind the cut.



First of all, as some of you already know, the image DC released wasn't the cover for issue #1, but a promo pic Brett did. Anyway, the cover was leaked at tumblr and Brett confirmed that it's real. You can also see that a few (costume) changes were made between promo and cover.



(I'm not saying that it's better per se, but we get a better look at the charas.)

Superboy on the promo pic triggered some laughs because of that taped logo on his back: that really was a piece of paper Kid Flash put there (you can see him rushing there with paper if you have a closer look at the background) - a joke Brett wanted to do for the promo pic.

Kid Flash is Bart and Wonder Girl is Cassie (no infos yet what'll happen to Wally and Donna).

That "spider/witchblade" girl is a new character - no new version of Raven like a few fans thought. And yes, the Witchblade feel is intended.

The black & blue girl on the right is only referred to as the "Charcoal Girl". On the promo she was colored black and red-ish, which was changed afterwards from red to blue. Some fans thought it was Terra, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

No info yet on the guy in purple in the back.

And last but not least: someone asked about Tim and how worried he was that it sounds like Tim's history with the batverse will be altered drastically. Brett's answer to this was: "Tim will be fine. People are reading into things:)"

Should that give us hope? I'm still worried that their friendships might get a reboot, though.
And yes, the 90s seem to be back, but I'm totally digging Wonder Girl's costume there.

If Charcoal Girl is not Terra, then is she... Secret?

If that is the case, then YES!


But it probably isn't, because it would make a lot of people happy.


Unless it is her and they ruin her character entirely.

Good to know my fear of losing Tim is quickly dissapearing, but still sad that it looks like I will no longer get to enjoy him in the Bat'verse (where he belongs)

Never been a fan of Teen Titans myself, I prefer Tim to be at Bruce's side...or at least working closer with him.

I totally agree. I hope Tim gets involved with the Batverse after a few issues, at least in a small way.

Cassie's costume is SO much better in this pic. Lol! Glad to hear that the sign on Kon's back was a joke!

I can understand that as a professional he's frustrated and annoyed by fanboy specualtion, but things like "Reading into things" is actually pretty much to be expected, especially when these are the images and phrasing that DC are using in attempting to instil excitement in their fanbase.

Yeah, that's what happens when teasers are written. People read them. Then they form interrogations about what they've read.

That's why there are teasers.

Kinda digging Cassie's costume here. It's combining a few different levels of Donna's costumes, which I like.


Kon looks way worse here than he did in the other picture.

Also, I know it's not Starfire, but the hair just looks so darn Starfire-y...

My 8 year old was arguing that it had to be Starfire and then went with Blackfire but she's busy with Vril Dox in the no-longer-in-existence-REBELS book. Plus she's too old.

At least the "Oh!" mouth is gone...

I didn't think Kid Flash's costume could look worse, but there it is. It looks like his cowl just had a close encounter with a lawnmower.

Also, Superboy's new secret origin revealed! He was from the Jersey shore.

It's Chase Stein from the Marvel universe, with a brand new pair of Fistigons.

Or that's just the cloning suit/stasis pod--like how in Young Justice when we first see Superboy he's wearing that white and black onesie.

To be fair, I'm kinda digging the new costume for Tim, at least it's not his awful Red Robin costume from before. X_x;

Though Kon's costume...yeeeeah, no.

What is that on Cassie's head some sort of hood? What is it connected to, I don't see a cape. Is it connected to her shirt?

I didn't think it was possible for Conner to get a lazier costume than jeans and a t-shirt with the S-shield.

Bart is not supposed to be a red head. And wtf is up with his mask?

Tim's history with the Bats wasn't what I was worried about. It was his history as a member of Young Justice and Teen Titans, they were his friends and it sounds like he's only just meeting them. Also worried about his fellow Bats, Steph and Cass.

"Hope"? How can any of you still have hope after the last few days? I think DC is trying to teach us all a lesson about hope, and that lesson is that it doesn't exist.

It would actually be less terrible if the taped-on S were part of it.
