Continuing my comic history course...

Back in the day, The New Teen Titans was DC's top selling book every month. I had a few issues but I was mainly interested in Starfire's rack back then. I thought I'd give it another try 20-something years later.

The Terror of Trigon focuses on Raven, the cloaked Teen Titan empath that's the daughter of a demon. Trigon, her father, unleashes her powers and New York is attacked by a horde of demons and transformed into something like hell. The other Titans are
I read this book at more than a few years ago, armed only with the knowledge of the Titans I'd picked up from the (really, really good) Teen Titans cartoon. As it turned out, that was about all I'd need to follow the story. But now that I've read a fair few of the issues that came before this, I think I have a better understanding of Raven's overall storyarc.

Now that I've read most of the issues of New Teen Titans that preceded this storyline, I can see how this is the natural conclusion of Rave

There are just certain runs that set the standard for team superhero books.

And Wolfman-Perez on New Teen Titans.

This paperback collects the first few issue of the Baxter paper series (back when decent paper was a novelty for comics) and about 4 years into the creative team's run on the book. This was back when new #1 issues were not yet de rigueur seemingly every few months.

This is a true Wolfman/Perez classic. I've never been a Trigon fan, and th

Meh. I guess I don't know/care enough about the Teen Titans for this to mean anything to me... I've always been interested in this time period/incarnation though because I think the art is superb. Trigon is an awesome-looking though totally generic villain and I think it's silly Raven wears high heels, even in demon form. She's an interesting character, but I'm afraid the rest are more or less eye candy (especially that Cyborg... vavavoom! No, seriously, Starbust [sic] has tremendous breasts and ...more

Marv Wolfman and George Pérez's run on The New Teen Titans has gained a reputation for being the apotheosis of 1980s superhero comics, with storytelling that rivaled Chris Claremont and John Byrne's on The Uncanny X-Men; indeed, many a comics fan has compared them, and the two franchises even teamed up in a large-format special drawn by Walt Simonson. This collection, The New Teen Titans: The Terror of Trigon, is the apotheosis of Wolfman and Pérez's run.

Excellent Teen Titans work. After reading Geoff Johns's work on the title and absolutely loving everything he did (before the one year later re-set that is) I decided I had to check out the Wolfman/Perez run that I'd heard so much about. Grabbing this volume--one of the few my local library has--was part of that effort. Wolfman and Perez are fantastic here. Definitely from the era when Comics were an equally written and illustrated medium as opposed to the current era when the written word takes ...more
In this collection, the Titans must save Raven's soul from her father, the demon Trigon, and force him to retreat from Earth, which he is gradually transforming.

In its day, this title was the primary market competitor to Marvel's immensely popular X-Men. Unfortunately, I don't think Marv Wolfman's writing holds up nearly as well today as Chris Claremont's does. Despite touching on some mature themes (Raven being the product of a rape, Dick and Kory sleeping together), The New Teen Titans still f

Wow, this takes me back. The Teen Titans was one surprisingly successful title, and that it became one of DC Comics' flagship series in the 1980s says a great deal about the quality Wolfman & Perez put into its development. This graphic novel collects the first half-dozen issues from the re-launched, prestige-format series, and it's a fantastic introduction to the team. It's also a nostalgic trip back in time to a surprisingly dark & adult series that had quite a hold on the comic book u ...more

I give both the art and the story a 3 out of 5. This is a very stereotypical eighties comic. I've always been a fan of the Teen Titans but I don't think this aged as well as some.
This is a great story, concisely told, with great character work and the perfect level of angst. Much, much better than The Judas Contract. Great silly art.

Creo que leí todos los capítulos salteados en revistitas hace mil, aunque por suerte después conseguí el taco. Por ahora lo marco como leído hasta nuevo aviso.
