Hi guys comic book virgin here. What Teen titans series should I start from? Other then the older Teen Titans cartoon I never had much exposure to the series but Raven was my favourite. I also recently watch all the young justice series and really liked it but it felt like it was trying to push to many plot twists.
Wolfman and Perez's New Teen Titans.
DC has been rereleasing the trades for a good price too. The first three trades are out now collecting the first 20 issues.
Geoff Johns' Teen Titans is an okay place to start too.
But if you want more of the Wonder Girl, Kid Flash, Superboy, and Robin from that series then see if you can find Young Justice by Peter David.
Other than that, comic Teen Titans are mostly horrible.
Oh and Wolfman/Perez NTT has very few things in common with the show.
Pretty much these two
Avoid everything because it's varying degrees of terrible. Between Deathstroke hijacking the Titans and making it into a book about villains (Which caused me to drop it), or the ceaseless trainwreck that is the New 52 Titans, nobody knows what to do with these characters
Peter David's Young Justice. It has what you're looking for and is also pretty damn funny, with the best versions of Tim, Bart, and Superboy.
Anyone got more highlights, I fell behind on that storytime and by the time I could feasibly catch up, the archive died
Dc specifically? Otherwise there's some other teen books I know about that might be interesting to you. Deadly Class currently ongoing at Image, Runaways from Marvel, New X-Men second volume into New X-men second volume ~2004 from Marvel. That kinda stuff.
Since you have no attachment to Young Justice the comic, read the Johns run from 2004. It's good for like 40ish issues. Abandon ship when Johns leaves.
THEN go read YJ and Graduation Day to get all pisssed.
Fuck it, storytiming Johns's TT#1
background info: Donna Troy/Trioa, formerly Wonder Girl just bit the dust

>Xbox reference is still relevant

Bothers me every time.
Let's borrow a whole page from X-Men here.
i just forgot how bad this comic was. Johns' Titans honestly wasn't ever good to me because Johns had trouble finding voices for everybody and some of the arcs were fucking stupid. I love the guy and I love wolfman perez titans but man when this was coming out I just didn't click with it
To be fair, man, this is a TV Pilot.
Same. Picked up the comic because of that cool show on teevee.
I picked it up this year actually. I was in my local school library bored out of my mind (Lot of time with nothing to do) and I came across the first volume and just started reading
And Geoff injects his fanfic into canon. As a fan of the Death and Return of Superman (stop throwing rocks I was really young.) I hated this at first but got more OK with it. It does define nuKon for the rest of his character which might attest to a weak characterization, sure. Hey, this shit is nowhere near the current state of any of the Titans.
If there's interest, I think I have the time to either keep going or do the best arc of this run, IMO, the Titans Tomorrow and crossover with the Legion of Super-Heroes.
Johns, though he leaves like two arcs later.
