Just a heads up:  2015's Teen Tech Week  will be celebrated by Greenwich Library during March 8-14.  We've got some interesting programs coming up that week.  But don't take my word for it.  Click here to learn more and find out how you can take part in the proceedings.

TEEN2.pngFollowing their recent reboots of Superman and Batman in their Earth One series of graphic novels, DC Comics now does the same with their popular Teen Titans characters.  The first volume of Teen Titans Earth One (click here to reserve a copy from us) reintroduces characters created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez in the 1980s (as well as a few from the 1960s Doom Patrol comic devised by Arnold Drake and Bruno Premiani) and gives them a new set of motivations and background.

A special school in Oregon has been messing with some of its students.  Vic Stone discovers his body is being covered with a liquid-like living metal.  Tara Markov can cause earthquakes.  Gar Logan can change into any animal form he wants.  Joseph Wilson keeps to himself for some reason. And they, along with a Native American girl named Raven out in New Mexico, are all having the same visions of aliens from another world.  Is there a connection between their mutual visions, the name "Starfire", and the strange underground installation seemingly run by Vic's mom...?

Writer Jeff Lemire and penciller Terry Dodson (with inking support by Rachel Dodson and Cam Smith, and colors by Brad Anderson) do a great job of updating the Titans, while also spotlighting their strengths.  Lemire's script deftly captures the feelings of isolation and hostility teens can feel in their lives, and amps it up a notch with cool battle scenes between the installation's guards and the hulking Deathstroke (who, along with one of the aforementioned Titans, undergoes a total revamping). 

Teen Titans Earth One Volume One leaves open a number of dangling plot threads which will be better explored in future installments.  But this first adventure is a great starting off point.
