Teen Titans: Earth One Volume 1
By Jeff Lemire, Rachael Dodson (Illustrations)
A new original graphic novel in DC’s popular “Earth One” series, TEEN TITANS: EARTH ONE follows in the tradition of SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE and BATMAN: EARTH ONE, both of which were #1 New York Times bestsellers.
The Teen Titans never felt like normal kids… but they had no idea how right they were. Their seemingly idyllic Oregon upbringing hides a secret — one that will bring killers, shamans, and extraterrestrials down on their heads, and force them into an alliance that could shake the planet to its foundations!
Superstars Jeff Lemire (ANIMAL MAN, GREEN ARROW) and Terry Dodson (WONDER WOMAN) reinvent DC’s youngest heroes, with an all-new mythos in an all-new world!
Summary from Goodreads.
Set on Earth One, a seperate Earth to the current DC Comics timeline, we get to meet 5 kids who once day suddenly all start to gain powers. We have Raven, Cyborg, Beast Boy, Terra and Jericho as part of the roster.
The art style was very blocky, but this suited the events very well. The colour palate was more on the muted side, which also work in this graphic novels favour. Unfortunately, however, no panels really grabbed my attention. The only panels that I can recall now were the ones with Raven in them, but even that is a tad of a struggle.
The storyline is quite simple, and it fits perfectly into the length of the graphic novel. Unfortunately I do not feel like much occurred, even though quite a few things did. I just found what did occur very unmemorable.
If you are yet to read and of the Earth One graphic novels form DC Comics, I would suggest not starting with this one but get around to it eventually.
