Aw Yeah! C2E2 Chats With Art and Franco!
Thursday, March 17, 2011
Mike: You seem to really have a love for the characters, and I think that shows in your work on the book. Were you a fan of the Teen Titans as a kid?
Franco: Absolutely, we read all that stuff. We read anything that had super heroes. We were both huge fans of George Perez.
Art: We had met George before the Tiny Titans actually came out; It was weird when we first met him because we were fans and now officially were “colleagues”. He had heard about what we were doing and I showed him the cover of the first issue which had Beast Boy with the purple and black costume from the cartoon. George said “Why don’t you use the red and white costume that I created?” I said ok and redid Beast Boy for the first cover. Beast Boy wears red and white in the comic because George Perez asked me.
