Living a Teenage Dream: The Best Teen Titans Fan Art Ever
Living a Teenage Dream: The Best Teen Titans Fan Art Ever
Ever since Robin, Kid Flash, and Aqualad teamed up to take on Mr. Twister in The Brave and the Bold #54, way back in the summer of 1964, The Teen Titans have been the second most important superhero team in the DC Universe. And considering the most important team, the Justice League, is basically a pantheon of gods, that's nothing to sneeze at. Being comprised of younger heroes, the Titans are the team who live on the cutting edge and reflect the times (in the strange ways that comics do) whether it's crazy made-up Bob Haney 1960's slang, or Marv Wolfman and George Perez injecting X-Men-inspired 1980's soap opera. We put together a gallery of the best Teen Titans fan art to celebrate these heroic kids.

Exclusive: Palmiotti And Conner On Ending Their 'Starfire' Run
When it debuted in June of last year, Starfire brought alien princess Koriand'r to the Florida Keys with a bright new attitude and a great new costume. Written by the Harley Quinn team of Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti, the book includes beautiful lineart from Emanuela Lupacchino and Ray McCarthy, with Elsa Charretier taking over lineart this week in Starfire #9, plus vibrant color work from Hi-Fi. All this comes together to tell the tale of a sunny-dispositioned superheroine making a life for herself in the strange land of Florida. But in the last month or so, rumors of changes coming to the DC line has readers questioning what would happen to Starfire. We got together with Conner and Palmiotti to discuss female friendship, Kori's views on love and sexuality, and the fate of the book in the coming months.

Elsa Charretier Takes Kori Underground in 'Starfire' #9
This current Starfire series continues to be a ton of fun, especially considering she was perhaps the character who suffered the most damage in the 2011 New 52 reboot. Pulling her back from that disaster and rehabilitating her into someone who longtime fans can actually stand to read a comic about has been a major project, and may be a factor in her getting a solo comic in the first place. With issue #9, that comic is getting a new artist. The Infinite Loop's Elsa Charretier joins series writers Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti for four issues, bringing a simple, fun art style that's noticeably reminiscent of Bruce Timm, the visual architect of the classic DC Animated Universe. And she can actually make a giant caterpillar look cute, which is really quite an achievement.
Terry Dodson 'Teen Titans: Earth One' Collectibles Review
Terry Dodson 'Teen Titans: Earth One' Collectibles Review
The Earth One OGN initiative at DC Comics offered the chance for new origin stories to be given to characters like Superman and Batman without readers having to worry about any continuity beyond what happened in those pages. In addition to offering modernized takes on familiar faces, it also gave the creative teams a chance to inject new ideas and style into the mix. It's hard to shake-up characters like Batman and Superman too much without going full '90s, but with characters like the Teen Titans, there's a lot more wiggle room. That's where Terry Dodson comes in. His redesigns were strong enough for DC Collectibles to turn them into action figures for its Designer Series line. Where Greg Capullo's held the fort firmly with his Batman family pieces, Dodson's figures give us a glimpse at the side of the DCU we don't quite often get to enjoy on the merchandise front, and it's a smart, successful inclusion.

Vote on the Best and Worst Comic Book Romances, Round V
In today's polls, we look at love in the Bat-family, where romance typically takes a backseat in the Batmobile to justice, punching, and moping. Is there such a thing as a great love interest in Batman's life? Do Tim and Steph belong together, and is Dick meant to be happy ever after with Babs or Kory or you? (It's you, isn't it? We didn't include a poll for that one, because it was always Dick and you.)
