Who is the new writer?
So now…who’s taking over?
That would be current Robin scribe Adam Beechen beginning with TEEN TITANS #47.
Some people have already seen his name solicited on upcoming issues of “Titans East” – that’s because Adam’s come on early to co-write “Titans East” with me to get a sense of the team and to set the stage for his run as I close out mine. There are going to be some shake-ups and, more importantly, you will see the beginnings of a second Titans team forming…though not necessarily what you’re expecting. Adam’s especially nailed the characters of Kid Devil and Miss Martian and he’s delved head first into the vast Titans history to soak it all up.
I’ve been a fan of Adam’s work for a long time, starting with HENCH and his stories on the JLU book, and I’m anxious to see what he does with the TEEN TITANS. I’ve already heard a few ideas on where he wants to take the team and I’m really looking forward to them.
I love Beechen, and I’ve been wanting to write more about his Robin run lately. This is great news, particularly because I’ll start buying Teen Titans regularly again. The last year and half, maybe two (whenever Titans Tomorrow ended) really hasn’t been to my taste, so I let the book lapse. Titans East drew me back in due to Batgirl.
Well played, DC Comics. You trick me into talking about not buying a book and then you put a scribe I really enjoy on it. Well played, indeed.
