    1 thought on “Teen Titans: Earth One, Volume 1

    1. Pretty cool retelling of the Teen Titans' origin story.These Earth One books have been hit-or-miss for me, so I went into this hopeful, but not salivating. Earth One titles (in case you aren't familiar with them) are basically What If stories, that re-imagine the beginnings of some of DC's most iconic characters. They don't fit into the continuity of the regular DC universe, so the authors can kind of do whatever they want, without it causing ripple effects. First off, for all the fans out there [...]

    2. Titans Together in other Earth! This is the first volume in a DC Comics Elseworlds series, known as “Earth-One”, setting the Teen Titans in a different “Earth” than the used for its main storyline. Instead of being a monthly comic book title, it’s published as a graphic novel per volumes with non-determined publishing schedule.Creative Team:Writer: Jeff LemireIllustrator: Terry DodsonInkers: Rachel Dodson & Cam SmithColors: Brad Anderson & Terry DodsonBORN AGAIN IN A DIFFERENT [...]

    3. (Green Theme buddy read. Because Beast Boy is green, of course.)I was kind of nervous about this one. The Teen Titans are a sentimental favorite for me. It was one of the first books I bought monthly, I loved the cartoon unconditionally, and I have emotional attachments to many of the regular Titans. So yes, I was a little nervous about a reworking of the team, but there was also no way that I could miss it. As it turns out, I'm glad I read it.Lemire picked a smart roster: Cyborg, Terra, Beast B [...]

    4. I am not particularly a Teen Titan or Earth One fan, but I am a Jeff Lemire fan, so checked this out. I am usually less impressed with his big superhero house work than his independent stories (Essex County). I loved Sweet Tooth and like Trillium. This I liked much less, though I think it's okay. I don't like the cartoony approach of the Dodsons here (though teens may in fact like it, and it is a teen audience). This is an origin-type story with a couple surprises, such as Raven as a mystical Na [...]

    5. Teen-age angst meets super powers. It isn't done that well in the beginning but picks up some.That said, the artwork is the best part and the story is average at best. OVERALL GRADE: C plus to B minus.

    6. EdgeEDGEEDGYYYYYYY!!!!!I felt it pierce my skin as I read this. Man, I love Jeff Lemire, but what the fuck was this? You like the Teen Titans? You like Teen Angst? Put those together and double, or triple, the amount. Man oh man these kids, teens, whatever, are really fucking dumb and annoying half the time. Also everyone dresses like they belong in the early 2000's when 50 cent was the biggest rapper around. What the hell was with the designs? Especially Vick and Beast Boy? Oh and Sladewhat the [...]

    7. I got an arc from NetgalleyHonestly I wasn't expecting much because I didn't like the cover. I was expecting the artwork to be mediocre, but instead I actually liked the graphic novel as a whole. I've been a Teen Titans fan ever since I was young, and this "storyline" is quite different from the one that I used to watch on Cartoon Network. Beast Boy, Cyborg, Raven, and Starfire were the only ones familiar to me, and Deathstroke of course. They brought back a lot of good memories. Like I said tho [...]

    8. This comic takes place in Central Oregon. That's awesome! I'm from Oregon, if you couldn't tell. Here we have an other world reboot of the classic Teen Titans: Starfire, Cyborg, Changeling, Raven, and Jericho (who I'm not super familiar with). Dick Grayson is missing, not sure if he shows up in Volume 2. And Terra, or Earthquake Girl as I call her, is an ally instead of an enemy. I can't summarize anything without spoilers, so I'll just say that Jeff Lemire's writing is top notch and pretty clos [...]

    9. 3.5 stars The group is made up of some generic teenage stereotypes (rich kid, slacker, quiet kid, and poor girl) but Lemire's dialog is so believable that I quickly looked past how generic the group actually is. Also I really felt that these characters were scared/confused about the changes that was happening to them. Most hero origin books one second your normal then the next second you're some badass defending the galaxy from some galactic threat.Give this book a shot and I think you'll be ple [...]

    10. HOLY SHIT, that was awesome!! I wasn't expecting to like it so much!!!Thank you NetGalley and DC Comics for providing me with a free copy for a honest review.Well, well, well.I loved this graphic novel! I loved it a lot! When you find something that fits into what you like and how you like something done, you tend to want to read or do that thing over and over again. When I first requested this graphic novel, I had in my mind annoying teenagers that are complaining about stupid and petty everyda [...]

    11. I. Am. Blown. Away.Never before have I been so immersed in a graphic novel! The quality of the illustrations is phenomenal - I cannot find the words to describe how amazing they are. The novel includes a motley bunch of characters who you'll grow to know and love, along with an awe-inspiring use of colours and perspectivesThe image-style was also a lot maturer than the one used for the original series Teen Titans, which was nice to see. It wasn't as cheesyt that there's anything wrong with chees [...]

    12. Decent volume but kind of like Superman: Earth One its not exactly on fire from the start. Hopefully Lemire will get a chance to grow this series some. I think it has potential.

    13. This origin story is so different it kind of threw me off. I'd say i got about about half way in I couldn't stop reading I want more now. the first half if kind of blah and cheesy but overall not a bad package I give it a 3.5

    14. For some reason I had a really hard time getting into this. Unlike the other "Earth One" books, I have almost no previous history with the characters, meaning I wasn't beholden to what I already knew and resistant to any new "version" of them. This first book basically tells the origin for each of them, which is now all tied together (I don't believe they were originally) so now just one origin. There really wasn't that much time to learn about each one of them before the change happens and thei [...]

    15. Good! So i have never read much teen titans, not because i hate them, just haven't read before. So I am a big fan of the earth one series, really interesting what they have done, with superman and batman, and this is yet another perfect example! So to break it down, they have done the origin differently, they've done it a way, as these kids have a joint origin, compared to the usual separate origins, which is smart for a big cast. Pretty much the classic team minus Robin. The Story although diff [...]

    16. Didn't care for this one at all. The art was cartoonish at best.I think maybe I'm getting too used to the Teen Titans either being Superboy and some Robin type with a Wonder Girl, or Cyborg and Starfire are too grown up now to take as silly kids?I didn't read much TT and I never watched the show, so I wasn't super into it, I just have enjoyed the Earth One series a fair bit. This was a let down in that regard.I don't even know who Jericho is, Terra I'm mildly aware of, and the rest sure no prob, [...]

    17. Generally, I really enjoy Jeff Lemire's work (his most famous-ish standalone so far, The Underwater Welder, was actually my least favorite). I love his Canuckness (not a word). He's very good at characterization and internal struggle, which, on a basic level, is one reason why people connect so much with superheroes. Obviously, they're (superheroes, not Canadians) nothing like us in that they have uncommon abilities, but for the most part, they struggle with the same doubts, fears, and self-loat [...]

    18. Might have liked it if I was, say, 14. Alas, I'm not anymore and I was kinda relieved when I finished it. Lemire's script would be perfect for saturday cartoons, as well as Dodson's art, in total Scooby-Doo mode. Ugh!Great disappointment; wether DC release a vol.2 or not, it's gonna be without me.

    19. Interesting retake on the Teen Titans - though I don't recognize any of these characters. For the most part it avoids cliches except for the character of Raven.The strongest aspect of this take is the story. Quite compelling and I am interested to find out more.

    20. I've been excited for this book for as long as no as I've known about it. My favorite writer and my favorite artist. Never thought I'd see the two work together. This book was a really interesting take on the Titans, and I'm so excited for book two!

    21. Actually succeeds in feeling fresh and new, while still keeping the characters mostly the same, which is super hard to get right. Giving it an extra half-star for that Dodson art, mmboy.

    22. I enjoyed this different take on the Teen Titans. I also felt that this was a good first chapter. I am really curious to see where the story goes from here.

    23. The premise of the Earth One line is to pare the character/title down to its core concept and imagine how it would be created in the 21st Century (versus the 1930s where most of the line was birthed) then in many ways I think there was a small failure here. Not so much on Lemire's part, but the interpretation of the core concept.Because the core concept is either the kid sidekicks of DC Comics major superheroes, or using those same character creating a big time threat (I admit to fond memories o [...]

    24. 2.5 stars.So, I'm not easily impressed, and this fell a bit short for me. I am interested in Earth One and the different takes it has on characters and storylines, and though I've only read Batman's, I really liked it (Vol. 2, especially). But, I don't know, I just wasn't feeling this one.I liked Raven's storyline: she is of Navajo descent, which is cool, and her powers seemed reflect her heritage (but don't quote me on that, I'm not well versed in Navajo history or culture).Victor and Tara kind [...]

    25. Worst of the Earth Ones so far. Kudos for the attempted re-imagining but the execution is poor - if you don't already know the characters intimately you'll be lost.

    26. Obviously being a fan of Lemire helps jump the rating up, but I found this origins story for the Teen Titans nice and refreshing. It's a simple and effective story and given that Jeff is able to convey his mysteries so well in this sort of format, I found myself unable to stop reading.

    27. Teen Titans is a comic book that most readers aren't likely familiar with. Many people around my age watched the show as kids and teenagers, but it was a cartoon aimed at kids, so much of the darker material was excised from source to adaptation. The Earth 1 books are marketed as DC graphic novels aimed at general audiences, and the target audience is likely only to be familiar with the cartoon. Though I read comic books, I never read the classic series, though I did read some of Geoff Johns ear [...]

    28. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.So, another bit of a departure for me, but I also read a decent amount of graphic novels back in the day and was curious about this one. I have a feeling I'm not the right target audience for this.The book's a origin story of the Teen Titans, a reboot. I'm not familiar enough with the original version (or original changed-up version, if I understand the history of the Teen Titans correctly) to really be able to see th [...]

    29. Like most 14/15/16-year-olds, I was HUGE Teen Titans fan when I was 6-7.It was a fun superhero show that never took itself too seriously, but was always real when it needed to be.I'd been looking atTeen Titans: Earth One Vol. 1on for weeks, and I was so happy when my mother gave it to me on Christmas morning.Since I would have to house to myself, I saved it for New Year's weekend.If you want to read this for a Teen Titans story Go somewhere else.This is, in a way, a Teen Titans origin. But it's [...]

    30. Jeff Lemire keeps proving himself as one of the comics industry's best and brightest. After a high profile run on Animal Man and Green Arrow (saving that title from cancellation) he continues to prove his worth. Jeff and I both have a love for the Teen Titans (especially the 1980's Wolfman/Perez era) and you can definitely see that here. There are heavy Wolfman influences. Yet,Lemire makes it his own. There are some pretty obvious changes here to from the usual Titans mythos but all felt welcome [...]
