Was cleaning up a closet last weekend and came upon my cache of original Teen Titans floppies. Here's a little treat from 1972, "Through These Doors Pass the Bravest Titans of Them All," or as I like to think of it, "That time Donna shaved her head and crossdressed for justice!" I've got six pages of an 18-page story, and therefore am cutting the Mal sequence down to a mere preview image.

That's Mal having a flashback to a childhood beat-down, to explain his heretofore unheard-of fear of wide open spaces, which he must overcome in order to repair a lunar landing guidance module.

Say what, now? )

So there you go - not bad for an ish where nobody even makes it into costume!

OK, now that I've got my breath back from reading Titans #23 - jeez, did Roy drop a bag of flaming dog poop on Didio's front porch or something? - I've remembered I recently came across Teen Titans #53, which is both the origin issue and the breakup issue. (Ironically, it's also the first issue of OTT I ever bought, back in the day.)

It has Guardian and Bumblebee minding the store at OTT HQ, and reading in a big record book of the Titans' first adventure, the one reworked in Year One: the heroes going rogue, the sidekicks joining forces, trading off sidekick/hero matchups, breaking the evil alien influence etc. Roy was a rough fit even then, but the standoffishness was on Roy's side, according to this:



And it was a much-grown Roy who got to do the honors of disbanding the original Titans.

Here's how he felt about them all in the end. )

I just don't even know what to make of Titans #23, after rereading this issue.
