The New Teen Titans: Terra Incognito Reviews

    Read this review and more on my blog.The New Teen Titans collects issues #26, #28 – #34 and New Teen Titans Annual 2.I feel like I read this at the wrong time of the year. I was reading this whilst I was waiting inline for 3 hours for the Rogue One midnight premiere and am now struggling to recall what happened as I am so pumped after seeing Rogue One (hint GO SEE ROGUE ONE!).The storyline was an easy one to follow, but a tad too predictable for my liking. I don’t know whether it is just getting used to how comic book are being written or somehow I have become smart these plot twists seem very obvious to me.The art style was very much what you would expect from the 1980’s. Bold colours, small outfits and easy to understand who was who. At times some of the artwork was surprisingly detailed and I missed out pieces of information so I had to go back and reread parts which I never enjoy.If you enjoy the Teen Titans TV show then seeing them in a comic is sure to make your day.

    With this volume, it's easy to see why The New Teen Titans was DC's top book back in he day. A lot of things happen in this one. The Terminator makes an appearance, Terra joins the team and is shown to be a double agent behind the scenes. Adrian Chase nearly dies and becomes the Vigilante. The Brotherhood of Evil makes an appearance. Cheshire debuts. Kid Flash and Robin both contemplate quitting. Compared to today's comics, that's a hell of a lot of happenings in eight issues.George Perez and Marv Wolfman show why their book was #1 in its day. Perez's art is detailed and nearly as good as it is today. Wolfman's writing is also good. You wonder why DC hasn't teamed the two on a book lately.On a side note, the first issue contained within, New Teen Titans #26, is one of the first comics I remember buying with my hard earned allowance.

    This volume of the classic teen titans is a great read. In this particular volume, Terra joins the team. I had never read the classic team before, so I was quite surprised to see that Terra is basically a jerk. Reading her lines are a lot of fun. She particularly has a lot of bad things to say about poor Beast Boy. The art is crisp, and there are some really imaginative layouts as well. In particular, the pages where Raven is fighting Phobia in her mind are really beautiful.

    DC’s reprint project collecting the classic Marv Wolfman/George Pérez New Teen Titans run hits a crucial phase with Volume 5.The first two years of The New Teen Titans had been excellent. But as the series worked its way through its third year, it began to achieve critical mass. Key to this period was the emergence of Terra, the troubled young powerhouse who joined the team while keeping a lot of secrets. Against this backdrop, the Titans found themselves in the crossfire of a war between two of their enemies, Brother Blood and the Brotherhood of Evil. They also dealt with a return from the Terminator, the mystery of costumed villain Trident and the debut of Thunder and Lightning, siblings from Vietnam with a mysterious American father and hard-to-control powers.While the superhero action was first rate, Wolfman and Pérez made these stories truly memorable with their deft handling of the complex interpersonal dynamics. The Terra saga was one of the duo’s best plots. The killer twist included in this arc really grabbed fans’ attention and set the stage for the book’s most famous arc.Lots of other elements in this stretch became crucial for the DC Universe. Both Kid Flash and Robin went through major identity crises. The issues developed here would soon lead Dick Grayson to give up being Robin and adopt his long-running Nightwing persona. And longer term, the work that Wolfman and Pérez did with Wally West put him on the path to become the new Flash a few years down the road. Wolfman and Pérez provided fans with a tease of their landmark Crisis on Infinite Earths series with early appearances by the Monitor and Harbinger, though their true nature wasn’t even hinted at here. And this arc midwifed the creation of the new Vigilante, who would become one of DC’s more controversial characters of the mid-80s.Old friends like Speedy and Aqualad turned up in guest roles. Kid Flash’s ex-girlfriend Frances Kane took a big step toward the mental instability that would one day turn her into the villain Magenta. And Cheshire, who would grow into a key part of the DCU within a few years’ time, made her memorable debut in the Vigilante story. Wolfman and Pérez also teased their end game for Raven, one of their most fascinating creations.The creators’ willingness to portray the ups and downs of being a part of the team infused the stories with relatability. The Titans were close friends, but they got on each other’s nerves. The romantic connections had significant ups and downs. And despite being a superhero saga, real world issues like drugs, organized crime and terrorism wove into the plots with finesse. It was state of the art ‘80s comic book storytelling that still holds up quite well.On the visual side, Pérez, working primarily with inker Romeo Tanghal, made the art as dynamic and compelling as the written component. While many issues deployed a more traditional approach, dividing most pages into grids broken up by the occasional dramatic splash page, Pérez infused a lot of energy and drama into those panels. His design work has always been one of the artist’s hallmarks and that’s on full display here. The characters are sharp and interesting without being overly fussy and the backgrounds they inhabit are detailed without being overstuffed. When Pérez let his imagination loose, though, it was truly impressive. A sequence detailing Raven’s desperate hallucination was innovative and unnerving (in the best way). And even when using the grid approach, Pérez found ways to put a twist on it, with repeating motifs or unique panel arrangements, that gave the action a propulsive quality. It was bright, clean work that injected enough shadow and invention to keep the book at the forefront of its peers.The entire New Teen Titans reprint series is worth picking up. But Volume 5 is where Wolfman and Pérez’s larger plans for the series really started to come into focus, with impacts that are still felt three decades later.

    Another stellar volume of The New Teen Titans that shows the comic at its best.The comic's strong mythology is on clear view here as we start off with a war between Brother Blood and the Brotherhood of Evil. Both groups are entirely intriguing, and almost as well detailed as the Titans themselves, thanks to Wolfman's great character work.Meanwhile, Wolfman is still busy introducing new elements of the Titans' mythology. Thunder and Lightning get just a single issue, albeit with the promise of more. Meanwhile we finally get to see the intro of Vigilante. His origin is honestly not that different from the Punisher's, but we get to see it live on-screen (and in the future he'll be a much more tortured and interesting character than Frank ever was).Wolfman's also not afraid to offer up off-kilter stories. "Who Killed Trident?" may have been the best because of its unusual en media res beginning and its unusual solution.And finally we have Terra, who joins the Titan's early in the volume and plays the spoiled brat throughout. Despite that, her interactions with Gar and Victor are priceless. So it's all the more shocking when we learn her true motives, and it's especially shocking that it's here, so far before the Judas Contract. Things are looking dark for the Titans, and this period of greatness will only continue.

    This TPB collects New Teen Titans #28-34 and New Teen Titans Annual #2. I read these comics as they came out, eagerly dashing to the drugstore spinner rack each month to try and snag a copy of my then second-favorite book (behind Legion of Super-Heroes). These stories introduce Terra and Vigilante, show growing dissatisfaction on the team (especially Kid Flash and Robin), continue Raven's struggles against the demon inside her, feature the Brotherhood of Evil, Brother Blood, and Deathstroke the Terminator, and so much more. Of course, it's all wonderfully drawn by George Perez. I'm ready for the next volume, which just happened to come out this week.

    This comic was all about the Teen Titans, working together and solving crimes and mysteries. However, Robin, their leader, was cold, distant and working on something himself. There are many adventures squeezed into this comic, all of them interesting and exciting. All I can say is that the story gets better in the next comic (The Judas Contract - which I had read before this one). It was interesting to see the first appearance of a character that I have only seen in an animated tv series but it was also so cool to see the differences and similarities. Overall, I enjoyed this comic and the story line and am interested to read more adventures with the (New) Teen Titans!

    Terra joins and all hell breaks loose with Brother Blood, the Brotherhood of Evil, introducing Cheshire, and THE VIGILANTE! But where's the foreward from MARV WOLFMAN? publisherfail!

    This volume begins the buildup to The Judas Contract. As I already know how that saga plays out, my perception of Tara/Terrra may be influenced by what I know is coming. But, man, is she annoying. She's rude to everyone, is incredibly demanding (complaining that she doesn't know everyone's secret identities), and is basically a jerk. The Teen Titans come off as somewhat stupid with regard to her. For example, if her backstory (kidnapped and held prisoner by terrorists) is true, why is she so adept with her powers? And why isn't she at all interested in returning to her home?The other plot that starts building is Kid Flash/Wally West's disaffection from the life of super hero. But what's really weird is how crazy he suddenly gets about Raven. He's devoted to her, even though she's very clear that she can't return his love. She's honest about the danger posed if she ever loses control of herself; Wally has to know that, as he fought Trigon with everyone else. But when Raven, in a fear-induced psychosis caused by Phobia, attacks Wally and almost kills him, he insists that she is evil. Even though everyone knows that she was under a form of mind control, and she was not in control of her actions. Wally is then a jerk to her--then worries about her--then is a jerk to her, ad nauseam. His characterization here doesn't make sense.Still, there are some good stories, even if I don't like Terra/Tara and Wally is being weird.

    The first couple issues of this collection but unlike modern annuals that seem like a cheap cash grab outside of continuity New Teen Titans Annual #2 is the real jewel of this collection. It has stakes, emotional gravity and the Vigilante origin story is among the best I've read.

    Finally saw The Vigilante in a comic book.Also got to see just how long Terra is in the group before the most popular story in TT history. Not a bad volume, but I'm never going to be used to how much older the TT were in this run.

    The Brotherhood of Evil strikes, Raven goes nuts, Wally questions his love for Raven, Dick's mood swings are apparent on everyone, Terra joins the team with a vengeful agenda. Those teens have troubled lives that's for sure!

    I debated long and hard before giving The New Teen Titans: Terra Incognito three stars as opposed to four. Ultimately, I based my decision on the fact that, while it represents a good read, and creators Marv Wolfman and George Pérez would soon be at the top of their game (most notably in The Terror of Trigon and, to a lesser extent, The Judas Contract), it feels much like a placeholder in between The New Teen Titans Archives, in which Wolfman and Pérez set the stage for the greatness that would follow, and the aforementioned The Judas Contract, in which the creators set a near-epic storyline.So, all I can really say are some random positive and negative aspects of Terra Incognito: First, Pérez's artwork was really coming into its own here. This is where it began to take on the characteristic "Pérez-ness" that was The New Teen Titans' hallmark (as well as, later, titles such as Crisis on Infinite Earths, JLA/Avengers, and Wonder Woman).Next, it was just a bit underwhelming to read of the inclusion and introduction of the character of Adrian "Vigilante II" Chase, who was DC's answer to Marvel's Frank "Punisher" Castle.Finally, it was a nice bit of characterization to have the Titans only begin fighting with each other once Tara "Terra" Markov joins the team; it foreshadows The Judas Contract nicely.

    This volume collects several issues from around the middle of Marv Wolfman's and George Perez's acclaimed Teen Titans run. The story mainly concerns the arrival of Terra, a girl with the ability to control earth. After liberating her from the criminals who were holding her parents hostage, the Titans allow her into their ranks on a provisional basis. They're not ready to tell her all their secrets yet - a wise choice, since Terra has some secrets of her own...This was DC's hot title in the early 1980s, giving Chris Claremont's X-Men a run for its money with large doses of relationship drama and many simultaneous, long-range subplots. It isn't quite as good, but it holds up pretty well for the most part. The hardest sections to get through involved the Brotherhood of Evil, a group of super-powered terrorists led by a brain in a jar. They spout seriously cliche villain dialogue, and half of them do it with a silly accent. I was glad to see them finally go away.By the end of the book, we begin to learn the truth about Terra, and see the birth of a new antihero. It would just get better after this.

    This is the tpb that marks the start of a legendary comic run. It took me a few issues to get into it. The narrative's a little busy, and there's too much of characters narrating their own thoughts or actions. It builds well, though, and I was sucked in by the end, enough so that I'm expecting the next one to be pretty fantastic.

    Si no me equivoco, leí esta saga completa de la edición en español de Zinco. Y como todos esos números me gustaron bastante, se quedan con cuatro estrellitas provisorias hasta corroborar lo anterior. Si esta no es la mejor etapa de los Teen Titans, no sé cuál se supone que sí...

    Three and a half stars.
