The Dark Crisis is over, the Justice League is no more and the Dawn of DC is upon us. The Titans have stepped up to become the DC Universe’s premier superhero team, and all eyes are on them but who are Starfire, Raven, Donna Troy, and Beast Boy? Where do they come from, and what do they stand for?
All will be revealed in “Tales of the Titans,” an all-new series of spotlight issues in the spirit of the beloved 1980s classic “Tales of the New Teen Titans!”
“Tales of the Titans no.1,” written by Shannon Hale and Dean Hale (“Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld,” “Diana and Nubia: Princesses of the Amazons”) with art by Javier Rodríguez (“Batman: The Brave and the Bold”), puts the spotlight on the alien princess and warrior Starfire. Her huge heart, huger hair, and fiery fists have made Starfire a fan-favorite member of the team! When a spaceship bearing Tamaranean markings crash-lands on Earth, Starfire goes on a solo mission to uncover its origins. But what awaits her on that journey will bring her back to the earliest days of her youth, to memories of two sisters eternally at war…and perhaps the chance to keep history from repeating itself.
“Tales of the Titans no.1” will be available at local comic shops on July 18 with a main cover by Nicola Scott, an open to order variant by Stanley “Artgerm” Lau, a 1:25 variant by Javier Rodríguez, a 1:50 variant by Fatima Wajid and a Titans special foil variant by Chris Samnee.
“Tales of the Titans no.2” (available August 15) will explore Raven’s backstory and is written by Tini Howard (“Catwoman”) with art by Eleonara Carlini (“Batgirl”). “Tales of the Titans no.3” (in stores on September 26) will highlight former Wonder Girl Donna Troy and is by writer Steve Orlando (“Supergirl”) with art by Kath Lobo (“The Vampire Slayer”). “Tales of the Titans no.4” (available October 24) features everyone’s favorite shapeshifter, Beast Boy, and is written by Andrew Constant (“Wonder Woman: Black and Gold”) with art by Brandt & Stein (“DC Pride”). Titans series artist Nicola Scott (“Wonder Woman,” “Earth 2”) will be providing main covers for all four issues.
The first issue of “Titans” from Tom Taylor (“Nightwing,” “DCeased”) and Nicola Scott will be at local comic shops on May 16.
