    News: An Inspirational True Story Inspired by Wolfman and Pérez

    AN INSPIRATIONAL TRUE STORY INSPIRED BY WOLFMAN & PEREZ

    I recently became the proud owner of New Teen Titans (second series) #1 Page 10 by George Perez and Marv Wolfman; it was generously given to me as a gift! But this is not an ordinary story! There is much more too it.....This piece has huge significance historically and for me, metaphorically as well.


    NEW TEEN TITANS #1 (Aug 1984)
    NEW TEEN TITANS #1 Page 10 (1984)
    First lets start of with the historic……This is page 10 from New Teen Titans, second series #1, (also known to some of us old timers as the Baxter series). The popularity of the Titans had grown to rival that of Marvel’s big guns, the X-Men and in the summer of 1984 DC decided to launch them into an all-new second series but in a new format. This new book was printed on high grade white paper with vibrant colors unlike anything that had been seen in mainstream super-hero comics before; but an even bolder move was that this new book would only be available to the direct comic market and NOT be available at local newsstands. A reprint version of the same issues would be come out several months later on the standard low grade paper, so if you wanted your Titans fix on time you were forced to go to your local comic shop; This was not a big deal to me because I had a local comic shop (more on that later) but at the time this was a major controversy because many only had access to comics through their local newsstands. But right or wrong, this would start a trend of direct market sales that would forever change the face of comic book distribution. Of course the team that had made the original series such a success, Marv Wolfman and George Perez, would move to the new series but gearing the book towards the direct market with a slightly more mature theme (and I say only slightly because the original series was already very mature….it’s one of the reasons I was drawn to the series in the first place). Of course both gentlemen did not disappoint and the 1st story arc from the “Baxter” series detailing Raven’s battle with her father Trigon as well as her own inner demons will go down as one of the best in Titans history. So to me this page being from the first issue of the Baxter Series is not only a big part of Teen Titans history but a significant part of comic history as well.

    The art on this piece (a half page splash featuring the entire team!) is absolutely stunning with George not only penciling but inking himself as well. This is simply George Perez at his best! The amount of detail that was put into this page is astounding and the scan just really doesn’t do it justice at all. From the amazing detail on the table, chairs and signature Titans Tower spiral staircase to the deep blacks used in the Raven panels…you can really see that George poured his heart into every line; and it’s because of work like this throughout his entire career that he is still considered The Master!
