My sadness at the loss of the Teen Titans animated series is well documented. My family turned to the Teen Titans Go! comics and that helped, for a while, and then there was the whole hubbub over whether or not that would continue, as well.
I simply cannot keep up with all of these changes, but I try, because I really have a thing for the Titans. Which sounds a lot creepier than I mean it to, when I say it like that. Anyway. I probably got a little more excited than was strictly necessary when I read Newsarama’s preview of the new Teen Titans: Year One comic:
TEEN TITANS: YEAR ONE #1
Written by Amy Wolfram

Cover by Kerschl
Writer Amy Wolfram (Teen Titans animated series) joins rising star artist Karl Kerschl (ALL-FLASH #1, ROBIN) for a colorful reimagining of how the Teen Titans came together! See how these teammates bonded, and overcame the sheer awkwardness of being teenagers in this explosive 6-issue miniseries that guest-stars the Justice League of America! You may think you know Robin, Wonder Girl, Kid Flash and Aqualad – but you don’t really know the original Teen Titans!

Hey, yet another way for us to get our Teen Titans fix around here. Sounds good to me! Teen Titans: Year One is slated to be a six-issue limited series, and I suppose by its very prequel nature it’ll be self-limiting, but who knows. We’ve got Teen Titans Go!, Tiny Titans, now Year One… maybe this could spark the return of some animated Titans. It could happen.
I can dream, you know. (It’s a new year. Don’t burst my bubble just yet.)
