Time now for the latest issue of Teen Titans. You'll recall that the team 'ported back to the 21st century to find Bunker and Beast Boy fighting for their lives on Tim's yacht, which is apparently the worst-guarded secret headquarters ever.

It's kind of a long story. )
...so, all that happened. *shrug* Reboot, anyone?

Hi ho, gang! Yes, i'm still alive. I got ill in February and was either in hospital or recovering and not allowed to drive til recently, and so missed the last couple issues of Teen Titans. But! Now I have both the ones I missed and the latest in hand! So I figure i'll do one post on the back issues and a separate post for the new. I have here six pages each from Teen Titans #28 and #29 - sounds like a lot, but there's at least one double-page splash from each ish.

You'll recall that when we left our merry band, the remaining Titans had joined Kid Flash and Solstice in the 31st century, where Bart was apprehended and put on trial. Being in the future enabled Bart to break through his Echo-created "witness protection" personality and become the evil revolutionary Bar Torr again, and submitting to the trial was part of his scheme - with all his world's power brokers gathered to watch him hang, his forces were able to strike at all of them at once, to the Titans' dismay.

We now join the battle already in progress )

Stay tuned, gentle readers! Same Titan time, same Titan channel!

You'll recall that during the whole Forever Evil megillah, the Titans got stuck bouncing at random through a whole mess of fractured timelines and Raven was called upon to stitch them together and reunite the group. Doing so landed them in the future in TT #25 where Kid Flash and Solstice watched pre-KF Bar Tor commit his heinous crimes.

In TT #26 Kid Flash recovered his memories and explained it all to the Titans - his parents' deaths at the hands of the Functionary for continuing to worship God, Bar's escape with his little sister, leaving her in an orphanage while he went off to start the Revolution, his turning himself in to Echo when he realized their big strike had killed his sister - and the Titans were horrified.

Now, the Functionary has put Bart in the dock for the Trial of the Century.

Things aren't always as they appear to be... - raven, as the trial begins )

Next Issue: The Final Sentence of Kid Flash!

Mods inform me that the Teen Titans Annual's release this week means #24 is no longer current, and therefore a little more can be posted. There's not *that* much more of interest we haven't already put up, but there is this page and a quarter or so, with a special guest star cameo.

In the twelfth century pan, under fire from Etrigan! )

He's always so much fun. And while the art in this ish did not rock my socks, yon guest star looks terrific!

OK, so the Titans are bouncing randomly around the time stream as a result of Forever Evil. Most of #24 is snippets of those bounces; [personal profile] superfangirl1 posted 3 pages of Bart's bounce-forward here. I've got about an eighth of one pages and 7/8 of the next to, like the Dude's rug, really tie the whole thing together.

Heaven help us all. )

Mods, a quick question w/r/t those pages I said above I wished I could post: Teen Titans Annual #2 comes out next week. With that release will this one no longer be considered "current" & subject to the 4-page limit? (the things that occur to you once the caffeine hits the bloodstream...)

Well, this issue was all kinds of a messy origin story for Trigon. 3 1/2 pages.

Heart of Darkness )
Incidentally, those defeated and/or tied up Titans on the cover? Don't appear anywhere in the issue. I call bait & switch!

The new issue of Teen Titans is out today, and it's a kind of breather issue between Big Epic Battle Sequences - the one we've just finished with Trigon & Co., and the upcoming Forever Evil sub-issues (numbered #23.1 and #23.2) featuring Trigon and Deathstroke.

You'll recall that last issue ended a little something like this:

Titans? Anyone? HELP? )

We have a guest artist in Robson Rocha this issue, whose pencils are serviceable, and inker Wayne Faucher. But I continue to hate the coloring jobs we're getting on this book.

Well, this is a difficult posting task - once again Lobdell, Barrows and Merino have committed rampant Double-Page Splash Abuse in crafting their fight scene. So I'm giving you a summary of the fight and three post-fight pages.

Did I miss anything, Red Robin? )

Next Issue: "The End of a Titan!" (But Not the One You Think!)
perletwo: george perez raven, accept no substitutes (raven)
[personal profile] perletwo
In which the Titans take on Raven's three demonic half-brothers, and we get a better look at what nU!Raven can/will do in action.

You people don't set the bar very high... )

Next: Dark Titans!

- or, "The One In Which Nothing Happens." No, really. Nothing happens. Certainly this "Red Robin Reborn!" stuff from the cover:

 photo p2_teentitans20_preview.jpg

doesn't happen.

We do learn that earth-time and azarath-time move differently, and in earth-time it's only been a few weeks since Phantom Stranger sold Rachel Roth out to Trigon, but it's been a much longer time, possibly years, for Raven on Azarath. This may help explain why in earth-time scenes only about five minutes have passed since the very messy end of last issue, while Trigon takes his sweet time explaining the family history to his sons back home.

Cease your prattle a moment and all will be made clear. )

And looking at that splash, can I just say, I think Trigon prefers Raven 'cause she's the only one of his kids that's pretty?

"Next Issue: The Teen Titans Battle The Brothers Trigon - With The Fate of NYC In The Balance!"

No, really, that's what it's called. Approximately 3 pages (2 whole, 2 halves) from the new issue.

They are the Teen Titans. This isn't their best day. )

BTW, is anyone else getting the "Image has been moved or deleted" placeholder on part of the s_d header?

Four pages from Teen Titans #18 here, in which as with last issue we still have lots of plot threads, but they're moving closer to converging.

We're the only ones who can save each other. )

BTW, it's a little hard to count pages on this thing since they're still double-page spread happy and the pages aren't labeled, but it's Eddy Barrows and Eber Ferreira on art pages 1-16 and Rodney Buchemi on pages 17-20. By my count that's the last two pages of the Two Teams Fight scenes and the two Times Square pages.
