They both carry the Robin namesake, but Damian Wayne and Tim Drake have very different ways of doing things. So different, that when they cross paths in the upcoming RED ROBIN / TEEN TITANS crossover, things are sure to get interesting. Here’s the first page of TEEN TITANS #92, on sale now, where we get to see how the two Robins think of each other a la Batman and Superman.
Nicola Scott's been absolutely killing the Teen Titans pencils for a while now, but I don't have to tell that to anyone who's been reading the series already. Here's a few pages from TEEN TITANS #91, on sale later this month. [gallery link="file" columns="2"]
Cassie Sandsmark has mother issues. Her relationship with her father isn't on much better terms - she's the daughter of Zeus, yet she's done her best to steer clear of his influences. Even on a weekend getaway from the Titans Tower to visit her mother at an archeological conference, Wonder Girl can't seem to avoid a conflict - whether it's with her parents, or a supervillain. This WONDER GIRL one-shot by JT Krul and Adriana Melo features the first big role for new Titans hero Solstice and ties into the new arc of TEEN TITANS. The comic hits stores next Wednesday.

What happens when you bring an unstable youth into the ranks of a team already on shaky ground? Fireworks, folks. Writer J.T. Krul and artist Nicola Scott have given us all a front seat, too, as TEEN TITANS #89 gives readers a dose of what happens when Damian becomes the latest Robin to sign up for the Teen Titans. But will he be more hindrance than help when a mega-powered teen sets his sites on Silicon Valley? We’re not telling. But click on the pages below for a hint or three. Oh, and did we mention a new character showing up? Yeah. Keep your eyes peeled for that, too.
Whenever I tell anyone that I am a comic book writer, I always get the same response: "That's amazing. How do you do it? How do you draw all those pictures?" That's how I know I'm talking to someone who probably hasn't ever picked up a comic book. You can spot the writers just as easily because they'll quickly go from plot points to the craft of writing comics. One that's come up quite a bit is: How do I approach writing a solo book like Green Arrow, as opposed to a team book like Teen Titans?
It’s a Bat-heavy week in variant land, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. First up, we have Guillem March’s cover to BATMAN AND ROBIN #17, along with Gene Ha’s variant for the same issue.

How about Amy Reeder’s BATWOMAN #0 cover, Alex Garner’s GREEN ARROW #6, Dustin Nguyen’s jam-packed JUSTICE LEAGUE: GENERATION LOST #14 and Kevin Maguire’s morbid variant for the same issue?
I’m not big on holidays myself, or so my colleagues tell me, but it’s hard to ignore the fun that is Halloween. You get to dress up, eat candy and wander your ‘hood. Plus, you get an annual dose of Halloween merriment in the form of the DCU HALLOWEEN SPECIAL, which brings together creators new and seasoned to tell tales that frighten, amuse and excite.
