With the Teen Titans unraveling at the seams, Beast Boy and Raven must return to Titans Tower to help Wonder Girl right the sinking ship. But things are rarely that easy for the team, as you can imagine. Hope aboard for new writer Felicia D. Henderson's second issue, with art by Yildiray Cinar. Scroll below for some preview pages from the issue, which hits 10/28.
One of the best parts of working on The Source is getting a chance to see stuff in progress, or getting bits of info about the creative process. With that in mind, we talked TEEN TITANS Editor Brian Cunningham into giving us a look-see at what goes into creating the RAVAGER co-feature, which will kick off with TEEN TITANS #72(in stores on 6/24, natch), from writer Sean McKeever and artist Yildiray Cinar. Take it away, Brian:
"Yildiray’s such a strong storyteller that I wanted to share some of the various stages of his art.
First, he sends along rough page layouts for approval. The layout above is page 1 of the RAVAGER co-feature. Sometimes, either writer Sean McKeever, assistant editor Rex Ogle or myself will notice something amiss that affects the story and request a tweak. Yildiray is wonderful to work with, in that respect — he takes the storytelling very seriously.
This is the pencil art stage. Yildiray really thrives when it comes to adding shadows.
And then Júlio Ferreira worked his magic ink brush on the pages to great effect. Júlio really nails all the wonderful textures in Yildiray’s work.
You’ll notice in this layout for a flashback scene that Yildiray mistakenly gave Deathstroke a full goatee...
...but he gave Slade his shave in the pencil stage.
And Júlio meticulously inks it all in, adding subtle details and textures. I can’t tell you how much of a hoot it is to see pages come in from these guys every step of the way!"
We already broke the news about the new co-features hitting in select DC ongoing titles starting in June. We've also talked a bit about some of the creators working on the titles. But we've shown very little in terms of art. Until now.
Here's a first look at artist Yildiray Cinar's rendition of everyone's favorite Deathstroke offspring, RAVAGER, which will be featured in TEEN TITANS #72, hitting in June, with words from former TEEN TITANS writer Sean McKeever. Don't let your jaw hit the floor too hard.
