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!… (more)

I’ve read the Batman Earth One and Superman Earth One volumes and so I thought I’d give this TPB a chance as well. I didn’t like it quite as much as the previous Earth One tomes, but it wasn’t bad and was interesting.

It’s about a bunch of High Schoolers just as the regular timeline Teen Titans have been. Gar, Tara, Vic, Joey, and Raven, as well as an unknown (for most of the book) force that seems to be trying to bring all these other kids together. They’re also all changing, and not just in typical teen ways.

I did get who most of the teens were right away, except for Tara (probably because I haven’t read as much about her character). And the stuff with Slade and the other parents was very interesting too.

It was a good start to the Earth One Teen Titans, and an okay addition to the Earth One Universe.

I got this advanced galley through Netgalley on behalf of DC Entertainment ( )

These Earth One books on the one hand confuse me with why DC presumes we need completely new off-canon origin stories but on the otherhand, they can prove entertaining, this one particularly so. I'm relatively new to the Teen Titans having read them in the New 52 and Young Justice, so I only know a bit about some of the characters true origins. Raven has always been one of my favourite TTs so I was a bit dismayed to have her portrayed as Native-American here but Lemire pulls it off very well and her introduction to the team is titillating. Jericho and Terra I've not met before and found their characters interesting even if Terra was a bit too much the whiny, angry teen for my tastes. Cyborg's origin story came completely out of left-field for me but it was so different from how he's always been played that I found it played out well. Also introduced in this volume are Starfire, Beastboy and Tempest. The book leaves us with having met these teens but by no means are they anywhere close to being a team yet. ( )
