Several comic book bloggers, including Ray over at Super Underwear Perverts and your's truly, are squealing with childhood glee after the release of a couple of images by Kark Kerschl for DC's upcoming miniseries, TEEN TITANS: YEAR ONE.
During my first comic book collection phase - - roughly from about age 7 or 8 to college... which I refer to as my personal "Golden Age" - - I became obsessed with THE NEW TEEN TITANS by Marv Wolfman and George Perez. I loved it so much that I started spending big bucks on back issues of the original series, THE TEEN TITANS, and reveled in the kitschy, 60's sensibility.
With so many different teen heroes added to the roster over the years (especially during that 52 week gap in ONE YEAR LATER... does ANYONE know what the Hell happened to The Titans during that year... I mean, "Young Frankenstein," y'all?), it's great to see the group at it's BRAVE AND BOLD original (well, second appearance) membership of four - - Robin (Dick Grayson), Wonder Girl (Donna Troy), Kid Flash (Wally West) and Aqualad (Garth)
I mean, Wonder Girl in those red, lace up sandals and Robin back in booties and green briefs - - what's not to love?
And Kerschl's Aqualad... wild...
