Default Who Will Join The Titans and Why I'm So **** Happy About It!

Hey everyone,

First of: Eddie, Tony, Jeanine and Kevin rule. They are my partners on this book and without them it wouldn't be the book it is. I couldn't be more happy with how TEEN TITANS is turning out.

In the next arc, more than one new member will be joining the team. Who they are and why will be a mystery. When? In the TITANS AROUND THE WORLD arc. Starting with issue #38. You'll see glimpses, and much more on a handful, of the members from the missing 52 weeks during the arc.

Despite the loss of Conner (choke) and Bart (sigh) from the team, Tony and Eddie and I wanted to take a risk. We wanted to try and do something totally DIFFERENT and NEW, create NEW characters and update ones few have heard of. For a long time, I think some people saw our new TEEN TITANS book as being an amalgam of NEW TEEN TITANS and YOUNG JUSTICE. I think we're finally out of the shadow and I think with all of the mythology we're laying, the numerous storylines and members that are being created, the book has come into its own completely.

It's really amazing to think when I first got offered TEEN TITANS everyone said "Why do it? It's been cancelled twice!" More than three years later, we're still one of DC's highest selling books. Our sales have been as solid as they've been since we launched. I thank all the readers for that and for letting us add what we can to the Titans world. I'm super psyched for everyone to see what we've got coming up next: TITANS AROUND THE WORLD, the mystery of KID DEVIL, the power of ZATARA, the strangeness of MISS MARTIAN, the fears of RAVAGER, the troubles between ROBIN and WONDER GIRL, the lost friend, the new enemy, the new member, the old member, BATGIRL, KID DEVIL's arch enemy, the TITANS EAST, the other TOWER, the loud girl with the crush on CYBORG, the missing "book" and plenty of insanity.

Tony and I were talking tonight about how the discussion has really been focused on the characters and what they're going through, how they're dealing, and that's the goal. Making these characters come to life. Thanks for coming with us on this crazy ride OYL.

Geoff

Geoff, count on me to be a loyal reader. I am loving OYL, and Titans continues to be the strongest, most consistent series at DC. As of now, I'm dying of anticipation for Red Star's appearance next issue.

I cannot fill in any more names because Eddie would kill me. And I want to live at least until Batman 2 comes out.

I thought when you die, you get so see everything in Heaven since its already made up there so you can watch and all. Well that is my thoughts on that. But we do want you to live, never mind.


How about any hints? I mean, like, does anyone of them use a bow and arrows?

PS. Thanks for the thing about Nightwing, I am sorry about all the Captain MArvel Jr stuff I said in the past. Me Happy!

Agreed. I hope Mia returns to the team. Heck, I would love to see Freddy as a member, now that Conner is gone. That one page in TT 23 was classic, with the Elvis references everywhere. All I know is, I'm very excited.

Hey Geoff,

First off, I loved the new direction that you and Tony took with the team. I was a little bummed not to see Connor or Bart on the team anymore, but it's created so many story possibilities and drama. I was wondering though, is there a possibility that one of the new members might be Stargirl given that the JSA lineup seems to be set ?

Lastly, will we be seeing Mia down the road in a later story arc, it seemed like she wasn't on the team for very long ?

Anyway, thanks again and keep up the good work 'cause you're making me go broke.

I actually could see Grant writing it, and finding a magical pattern within the words that actually resurrects Geoff.

Grant's creepy enough to do it ...
