Welcome once more my comic collecting cohorts to another instalment of Comic Cover Of The Week, and this week our spotlight of excellence falls upon “Titans Hunt #1”  In 2011, following on from the conclusion of the Flashpoint crossover saga, DC Comics cancelled all of its ongoing comic series and debuted 52 new comic series. This was essentially a massive reboot of their seventy five plus year universe of characters, that had over the decades become embroiled in continuity problems. DC also saw this as a way to reintroduce their mighty mortals to a new audience and in essence just start again from the beginning.

Some classic versions of characters and teams were confined to history during this huge shake up, with the original Teen Titans being one such casualty. With the current rebooted version of the Titans comprising of, Red Robin, Wonder Girl (Cassie Sandsmark,) Raven, Bunker and Beast Boy, the previous team never apparently existed, or did they? It has long been alluded to in sundry titles over the years that there was a previous group of Metas that also called themselves the Titans, and may have included Dick Grayson and the original Wonder Girl, Donna Troy amongst its numbers. Of course no explanation has been given on how this is possible due to the New 52 shake up and erasing of the previous timeline… until now.

Return of the original Titans?

Return of the original Titans?

Titans Hunt is a 12 issue maxi-series by Dan Abnett that will explain how exactly this is possible and also bring us back into the fold of the original and well loved Titans of old. Initial focus of the storyline is with Lilith the telepath, who is resolute on re-uniting what she sees as the original version of the team, to help her in defeating a malevolent evil from her past, and somehow only the pre New 52 Titans can help.

Titans Hunt #1 is available at your local comic-book emporium right now. Written by Dan Abnett. Cover and interior art by Paulo Siqueira. Variant cover by Tony Daniel

    We just sent a big box of Teen Titans comics to
    our nephew. For us the Titans have always been
    the most accessible DC franchise, diversity rules.
