Additional infos on the new Teen Titans series

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.

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.

But look at at his arms! They're all weird and robot-y...

Hmm...maybe his arms still needed some time in the cloning oven? *kanye shrug*

i think they are just monitoring like attachments...

i kinda like the supergirl look, something about asymetry that really grabs at me :D

Good grief. And I thought there was a lot of parallels between Victor Mancha's and Kon's backstories before.

Ah, I was focusing on his arms, which make it look like he has a robotic skeleton.

No I think you're right, they're too skinny to be normal arms.
