Hey everyone, J.T. Krul here. I wanted to come by and say a few words about the premiere of my Teen Titans run starting in October. Now, I was going to talk about what a great honor it is to have the chance to work with such characters. For me, the Teen Titans are one of the top-tier teams in all of comics. I had plenty to say about what working with Nicola Scott is like - maybe even talk Alex Segura into teasing some new art…Alex?
It starts now. With TEEN TITANS #88, writer J.T. Krul and artist Nicola Scott step onto one of DC’s most iconic series, and from what little we’ve revealed and teased about the book, it’s clear the new team is prepared to move the Teen Titans forward, with a healthy nod to wha’s come before. Oh, and Damian. Can’t forget him, can we? We’ve got a first, early look at the team’s kickoff issue right here, and very little of what I’ve said does these pages justice. So, sit back and click away. You’re in for a treat.
Want to see Ivan Reis draw a Superman/Flash race? Mike Allred take on the Teen Titans? Two Wonder Woman covers? Well, you’re in luck, as we have all that and more. Specifically, we’ve got a first look at Ivan Reis’ amazing ACTION COMICS #892 DC 75th variant, Mike Allred’s TEEN TITANS #86, Gary Frank on SUPERMAN: SECRET ORIGIN #6, Frazer Irving’s BATMAN AND ROBIN #14 variant and Don Kramer and Alex Garner’s cover and variant to WONDER WOMAN #602. Enjoy! [gallery link="file"]
That’s right — starting later this year, J.T. Krul will step in to chronicle the adventures of the DCU’s premiere teen team. But what can readers expect? We cornered the writer for a quick comment. Take it away, J.T.:
It’s been a fun week here at The Source, what with all the WEDNESDAY COMICS extras we’ve been rolling out. And today’s doubly important, as you can actually step into your local shop and pick up a copy of the WEDNESDAY COMICS HC. So to celebrate the event and because, hey, why not? We’ve got a look at four of the artists that contributed to the legendary weekly series: SUPERGIRL’s Amanda Conner, ADAM STRANGE’s Paul Pope, METAMORPHO’s Mike Allred and TEEN TITANS Sean Galloway.
The best thing about the co-features that's we've been doing is that we get to give characters and creators a chance to shine that schedules and availability might otherwise prevent. As the excellent Ravager feature in Teen Titans started to wind down, the need to find a new one with an entirely new voice arose. Fortunately, my esteemed colleague Rex Ogle had one in development, and it was an instant get.
