On Tuesday, we made the announcement in USA Today that DC was undertaking a historic renumbering of 52 superhero titles across the line, starting with JUSTICE LEAGUE #1 by our superstar creators Geoff Johns and Jim Lee.
After his teammates' betrayal and the loss of another eye, Deathstroke must reunite the splintered group if they're to have any hope of escaping Drago's island. But first, he has to escape Drago's prison... Meanwhile, the Tattooed Man makes his return to Liberty Hill to find it a place entirely different than the one he left several months ago. Eric Wallace and Fabrizio Fiorentino's TITANS #35 is in stores tomorrow. [gallery link="file" order="DESC" columns="2"]
[gallery link="file" order="DESC" columns="2"] This July, a new storyline kicks of in the TITANS ANNUAL #1 and continues into the regular TITANS series. (Those are the covers to the Annual and issue #37 by Fabrizio Fiorentino above!) Why should Titans fans be excited about “The Methuselah Imperative”? Writer Eric Wallace explains why:
With the upcoming “Broken Promises” storyline, the TITANS are about to experience a time of change, and surprisingly the biggest change is coming to its leader Slade Wilson, a.k.a. Deathstroke. With some insight into Slade and the TITANS’ transformation, is series writer Eric Wallace.
"This issue is all about doors opening and closing. For Deathstroke, his mission to free the Mad Hatter and rescue Wavelength (Allegra Garcia) was a success, but his team trusts him less now that ever before. This forces him to open a very big door, literally. And it’s one whose secret was first hinted at back in Titans #24. What’s behind this door shakes up the Titans in a very big way, especially where the Tattooed Man is concerned.
TITANS’ “Family Reunions” storyline kicked off last week in #28. The issue gives us a peek into Deathstroke’s ultimate plan for the team, as well as revelations about the promise he made to each member. But what’s it like writing Slade and the gang? TITANS writer Eric Wallace has his answer:
“With Titans #27, the final pieces of Deathstroke’s team are now in place, which means we finally get to see Roy in action as a Titan again. Unfortunately for him, when you’re high, fighting isn’t easy. And you can also make mistakes. Big ones. This issue also reveals the next puzzle piece in Deathstroke’s master plan. I won’t spoil it, but let’s just say there’s a definite reason Deathstroke took on this mission, one the rest of the Titans know nothing about.
"With Roy back on drugs and haunted by Lian's death, he's fallen into an emotional abyss. Broken inside and making all sorts of bad decisions, he's now a perfect fit for these dark Titans. That's because these anti-villains are a team of broken, desperate people. Yes, things are going to get worse before they get a lot better. But ironically, it's Deathstroke's uber-mission that's going to help heal them. That is, if they all don't get killed first in the process." [gallery link="file"]
