    Remember the New Teen Titans
    Part One: Meeting the Titans
    By Jennifer M. Contino March 21, 2016

    I discovered The New Teen Titans quite by accident, and it was one of the best accidents of my life. Let me explain: the naive comic book reader, all of nine years old, thought any comic book that had Batman on the cover had to have Robin somewhere in the story, and vice versa. Batman and Robin were my favorites at that point in time, so I bought just about every comic book with Batman that I could find. So, I was at the newsstand -- yes, at that point in time (circa 1982) the newsstand was my comic book store. Even better, I was at a newsstand with an extra dollar to my name. It was Lent....


    The Teen Wonder was on the cover of New Teen Titans # 19. Mistakenly, I believed Raven (who I didn't know at the time) to be Batman, covered by his cape. So, I thought, "A Batman and Robin story I don't have. I'll get this." Again, I was young and just thought someone didn't color Batman's leg. Also the story promised an appearance by Hawkman, and I liked him in SuperFriends. I didn't really know anyone else on the cover, save for Wonder Girl. I had an awesome yellow sleeping bag that had Wonder Woman, Wonder Girl, Supergirl, Catwoman and Batgirl on it, so I recognized Wonder Girl, even if she did look different from the Wonder Girl I knew from Lynda Carter's Wonder Woman television series. I went home, got my slices of pizza, then sat in my favorite comic book reading spot, and opened to page one of this story.

    A Few Personal “Best Comic Book Stories of All Time” - Part I

    Over at the Silver Bullet Comic Books Forums there’s been a thread running devoted to discussion of “The Best Comic Book Story of All Time.” I’m doing something along that line here, but much more personal. Over the next few Comic Effect columns I’m going to discuss some of my favorite comic books published over the years. Be forewarned: at times, the “best” here is going to be purely subjective!

    The New Teen Titans #19
    May, 1982. DC Comics.

    “The Light Fantastic.”
    Writer: Marv Wolfman: Artists: George Perez and Romeo Tanghal. Editor: Len Wein.

    For a while in the early 1980s, the new Teen Titans ruled the comicsverse. And for good reason. Marv Wolfman and George Perez created some terrific characters and some breathtaking storylines. This issue is a break from all that. It’s lighthearted, and not only because Dr. Light is the villain. It has a classic comic book plot and structure, but seems fresh and new, probably because the Titans were such an intriguing bunch of characters. And Perez draws a mean Hawkman. This isn’t necessarily representative of the series, because, as with Sandman and so many other titles, I could easily do a Top 25 New Teen Titans list. But this story has it all: action, adventure, humor, characterization, mythological overtones, and lots of teamwork. At one time, the Titans really came together as a team. This longtime favorite story reminds me just how good they were.
