NEW TEEN TITANS #1 (Aug 1984)
DC Comics
When you buy older comics on digital, some companies do not include the letter pages or original advertisements.

Here's an excerpt of the New Teen Titans #1 (1984) letter page, written by Marv Wolfman:

"You see, four years ago people laughed when we said we were reviving a comic DC had canceled twice before. When George Perez was visiting a comic shop at the time of the Titans' premiere, he was told that the store hadn't ordered many copies of TITANS #1 because in six months it would be canceled and forgotten. DC, they felt, hadn't had a certified hit in years. Well, that was about to change.

By our sixth issue, we were DC's best selling comic. Within the year whenever I'd visit comic conventions which featured costume parades, I'd almost always see a Titans costume among the elves and mutants that seemed to prevail. Las year I found a Titans statuary, mini-figures, pins, drawings, and even a magazine explaining how to fit the Titans into role-playing games."
