    ORIGINS OF A COMIC BOOK JUNKIE: No Comics In School!?

    I've joked before that comic books were like my drug addiction, but, in a way, there were more parallels than just my willingness to lie, steal or borrow to get enough money to buy my comic books. I soon discovered that like most drug users, I had to hide my love of comic books from most people or be labeled with a scarlet letter C on my head. In elementary school, none of the other kids seemed to care too much that I liked superheroes and read comic books. When I changed schools though, that was all about to change.

    When I was in fourth grade, it was decided that a school a few blocks from where I lived, across the street from my grandmother's house, was going to be reopened, and that those of us who lived in the park should now attend this school. I didn't mind, I was terrified of the woman who was supposed to be my fourth grade teacher at the old school. I saw her in the halls, and she never smiled. Worse, our classroom was next to theirs, and she was constantly screaming and yelling at the class. Just looking at her was terrifying. She reminded me of a female Darth Vader. So when we were told that we could go to this school, I was looking forward to it.

    1983 saw the publication of a very special Teen Titans book. It made its debut, not on newsstands, but as part of a kit distributed to schools around the country. The kit was co-produced by DC Comics, Inc., and the Keebler Company for use in President Reagan's drug awareness campaign. Its goal was to inform schoolchildren (in particular, fourth graders) about the dangers of drug abuse.

    Originally, the head of the White House drug program approached DC because he had wanted to use one of their better-known characters such as Superman, Batman, or Wonder Woman. But those characters were tied up in other projects at the time. Instead, DC recommended The New Teen Titans, the company's best-selling title. The program heads were shown Wolfman's two-issue story dealing with runaway children and were impressed. Best of all, they realized The Titans would appeal most strongly to the age group they wished to reach.

    One problem cropped up with the book as Wolfman and Titans artist George Pérez began work on it: Robin, the leader of The Teen Titans, couldn't be used. "This book was being sponsored by Keebler, and Robin was already licensed by Nabisco. So I came up with a new character, The Protector. We already had the art done, so Dave Manak did all the corrections to turn Robin into The Protector. He looks pretty much as I envisioned him, except where his costume is purple, I had originally wanted black."

    Hanna Barbera produced a 60-second anti-drug spot in the early eighties using these six characters. It was the only animated appearance of the New Teen Titans.

    Marv Wolfman, from New Teen Titans #41 letter's page: "Sometime this season you'll be seeing The Titans all over the TV tube. Tying in with our special anti-drug comic, Hanna-Barbera will be unleashing a one-minute Titans anti-drug cartoon spot which should be shown on all three networks, most likely during Saturday morning. There will also be 30-second and 20-second version of the public service announcement. We received a call from their design department, asking for a whole slew of George's designs, so the Titans should look just about perfect."

    The commercial also included the Protector, who appeared in the anti-drug comic book.

    Dear Titans Fans!

    We have lots of news and this go-around, so let's get started.

    (excerpt)

    …Other Titans news! Sometime this season you'll be seeing The Titans all over the TV tube. Tying in with our special anti-drug comic, Hannah-Barbera will be unleashing a one-minute Titans anti-drug cartoon spot which should be shown on all three networks, most likely during Saturday morning. There will also be 30-second and 20-second version of the public service announcement. We received a call from their design department, asking for a whole slew of George's designs, so the Titans should look just about prefect.

    Next summer should also be a special Titans time. Not only will we have our traditional annual - this time revealing the origin of, well we'll tell you who some other time - but the Titans will also be the guest stars in the DC PRESENTS ANNUAL, featuring our favorites and a certain unnamed Man of Steel. I'll be writing the story, and if deadlines permit, George will be handling the art! Definitely something to look forward to.

    - Marv Wolfman
