CBR News: What’s your personal history with the Teen Titans as characters, as a team, as a concept? Were you a fan before you came to the team for DC: Rebirth?

Jonboy Meyers: I’ve been a fan of and reading “Teen Titans” since the ’80s starting with the [Marv] Wolfman/Pérez stuff and then onto Tom Grummet’s amazing work on the book soon after. Some of my first drawing samples were of the Teen Titans fighting Deathstroke and Wildebeest — though I dropped off until Geoff [Johns] and Mike [McKone] rebooted the series with those amazing Mike Turner covers.

I’m also a fan of the “Teen Titans GO!,” “Young Justice” and “Teen Titans” direct to video movies. For me, those have been a huge source of inspiration. I’ve been a longtime fan, and still can’t believe I’m drawing “Teen Titans.” It really hasn’t quite sunken in!
