    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 who have been screaming bloody murder over Starfire's over-sexualization in some of other titles? You can officially put down your torches and pitchforks. The majority of this book, you only see her eyes (sort of), and when you finally do see her, she's wrapped up in cloth from the neck down. Like a mummy! Sorry, that image just made me giggle, so I thought I'd share. Ok. In this story, most of the (eventual) Teen Titans (Cyborg, Terra, Beast Boy, and Jericho) meet in high school. Two exceptions. Starfire, whose alien DNA has been used for experiments, and is currently in stasis at a lab. And Raven, who's not the daughter of a demon in this one, but a Native American with somewhat undefined powers. The other four kids are seemingly normal teenagers until they all start hearing Starfire's voice n their heads, asking for help. The voice triggers the different latent powers in each of them to go into some sort of hyper-drive. Except Jericho. He seemingly remains a normal kid. Hmmmm. The plot reminded me of Kelley Armstrong's young adult trilogy, Darkness Rising. In that one, a group of teenagers lived in a isolated town, blissfully unaware that the company their parents work for had been injecting them with stuff that eventually gives them supernatural powers. An experimental town, so to speak. Now, I'm not suggesting that Jeff Lemire ripped-off a young adult series. I doubt he's ever even heard of it. But if you know the plot of those books, then you'll understand the comparison. The kids in Earth One are also 'experiments', and are unaware of the part their parents played in their new abilities. Now they've gotta go on the run, search for answers, yadda, yadda, yadda. The Terry Dodson's art fits with the feel of the book. It's got a cartoony vibe to it, without being weirdly exaggerated. Good stuff. And this is really just sort of silly, but I'm wondering if anyone else thought the dark haired chick on the cover was Amanda Waller? Maybe because I'd been looking at a tiny cover on my computer, but I was actually surprised to realize that it was Raven. Overall, I liked this one, and I'm interested in seeing where they go with this story. Also reviewed for and

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 Lemire Illustrator: Terry Dodson Inkers: Rachel Dodson & Cam Smith Colors: Brad Anderson & Terry Dodson BORN AGAIN IN A DIFFERENT EARTH Continuing with the sagas in the Elseworlds universe known as Earth-One, now it’s turn to the Teen Titans, where they got a whole overhaul leaving few things recognizable to the now iconic revamp by Marv Wolfman & George Perez that took the Teen Titans to soar so high that they become one of the hottest titles, back then in the good ol’ 80s. However, while it’s quite different, it’s still as awesome as it was the classic revamp, proving the endurance of the characters, but also, it’s a great example that if you publish a “reboot” of a comic book title set in a parallel dimension, the appealing factor is to get advantage of that and to change as much it’s possible but keeping the essence of the title and its characters. Victor Stone (Cyborg), Tara Markov (Terra) (YES!!!), Garfield Logan (Changeling), Joseph Wilson (Jericho), along with Starfire and Raven, they are the roster of the Teen Titans in this first volume set in Earth-One, where if you like… …Roswell TV series and Heroes… …it’s a sure thing that you’ll love the comic book title. Teenagers that obviously don’t want to be different but to fit with the rest of the high school populace, therefore… …getting strange powers won’t help at all with the fitting angle… …but that’s not all, because they’ll find out that their parents not only they weren’t what they thought that they were, but also they’ll know in the hard way that they can’t trust in their parents! And remember, this is a Teen Titans title and… …a betrayer inside the team is like a non-written rule!

    (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 Boy/Changeling, Raven, Jericho, and Starfire. All fairly well known characters whose main claim to fame is being a Titan. There's no Robin, Red or otherwise, and we don't really need him. The characters are very similar to the classic version. Yes, there are a few changes here and there, like Raven being Native American and Gar having two dads. But they still feel essentially like the characters I know and love, just freshened up a bit. Which is, as far as I can tell, the whole point of the Earth One line, to give familiar characters a new coat of paint without dramatically altering them. The best thing about the story is that it gives a cast of very different characters a shared origin. That streamlines things significantly, while leaving in some important details that I would have missed. And I think that, even if this had been an entirely new cast of characters, I would have found this origin story interesting. I can't deny that seeing Gar made it better, or that I'm eager to see more of this new version of Raven, but I think it would have worked well even with characters I didn't already love. Yes, I was nervous about this book, but I'm really glad I ended up reading it. I actually want to read more. I hope Lemire will get another book or two out of this.

    So far DC's Earth One series - the revamping and/or reinventing of origin stories for their classic characters - has been both 'hit' (the Batman and Superman titles) and 'miss' (Wonder Woman - no pun intended) for me. Unfortunately with this volume the Teen Titans fall into the latter category.

As other reviewers noted this is just over the top in teenage angst, like The Breakfast Club collided Dawson's Creek episodes or . . . something. Also distracting was the PG-rated swearing by the main characters - of course in real life a lot of teens use profanity, but in this story it was so repetitive (like in every other dialogue balloon) yet just safe enough like it was meant for prime-time network TV. What is this, a sitcom from the 70's?! The absence of Dick Grayson a.k.a Robin did not help, either. The one saving grace was Raven, now presented as having a Native American background.

    I am not particularly a Teen Titan or Earth One fan, but I am a Jeff Lemire fan, so checked this out.

    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.

The backgrounds, some of the fights, I was on board. I also did like Sunfire and Raven. The rest though? What a big gigantic waste. I'll try volume 2 because I hear it's better but damn, this is some edgelord shit right here lol

    The story was just OK. I thought the idea of the Earth One books is that they were supposed to be a "real" world take on the characters. However, this is much more of a SciFi story about genetic experiments. Not one of my favorite Jeff Lemire stories. Terry Dodson has changed his art to a straight up Manga style in this book which is a shame since his normal artwork is usually so beautiful to look at. The story was just OK.

    I got an arc from Netgalley Honestly 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 though, this one offered a different story than the mainstream one. It's quite darker, and a bit mysterious. Some of the character's history were really interesting to read about, but some were just plain old boring and felt like info dump. The plot over all's above satisfactory. The plot was quite interesting, but it didn't reach my expectations. This is Teen Titans we're talking about, it should be really awesome. Nevertheless, this is a very good graphic novel. I will be reading the future installments, and also Batman and Superman Earth One.

    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.

The artwork is damn clean and bright. This encourages me to go back and buy and read all of Marv Wolfman's reprinted 80s Titans and read everything else until this point. Seriously, the Titans are a B team that aren't given enough credit. This is a fantastic Earth One read!

If you love a good graphic novel, I highly recommend Teen Titans: Earth One Vol. 1 by Jeff Lemire :)

What I got was strong teenagers, that despite being hit all at once with the new developments in their lives, fighting to survive. This was so fast paced but great and straight to the point that I don't feel like I missed anything or that it dragged in any part. The Teen Titans are my new favorite! I want to read all the books/graphic novels. My favorite bird is a raven..... ^Raven! I highly highly recommend this anyone that loves Teen Titans, that has never read a graphic novel and would like to get their toes wet, and anyone that enjoys a comic or graphic novel now and then. This is going in my favorites shelf.

    It was okay, super hero comic books aren't really my thing, and I thought it had a pretty good plot, but I was slightly confused about what was going on the whole time. If you enjoy reading comics, you'll probably really like this one, it has more plot than I expected and the illustrations are done pretty well. I don't plan on reading the second volume, but you're opinion may be different. This review is on a book genre I don't know much about, so don't put much weight on my opinion.

There really wasn't that much time to learn about each one of them before the change happens and their personalities seem solely based on their current predicament (terrible parents). Normally I'm a huge fan of The Dodson's work but even that didn't seem like their normal calibre. Figures were a little distorted, and slightly out of proportion sometimes, and I don't recall the panel count being this low on their other work. I can't really pinpoint anything super wrong on this book, it is intended to be setup which may account for the shallow feeling it gave. But that also means I'm not vested in the characters enough to want to read more.

    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 Good! So i have never read much teen titans, not because i hate them, just haven't read before.

The Story wasn't bad, it just jumped around all over the place at times. The Artwork was cartoony style, so very nice in my book! In terms of the cast i liked most of them, Terra annoyed me, and Raven was probably the best of the whole lot! This book unfortunately ends on a cliff hanger, so that sucks! But overall a very nice Earth One Addition!

    Didn't care for this one at all. The art was cartoonish at best.

    I've never read, seen or even heard much about teen titans. So, maybe some things weren't very clear to me in this book, I'm not sure. But I enjoyed it still, I though it was pretty fun and cool without being too teenage-angst-annoying (like Runaways). I liked the art here a lot, too. It was beautiful and very fitting to the story.

    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.

    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.

    I watched the first episode of Titans earlier today after work and it make me want to pick this up. I’ve seen/heard a lot of mixed things about this book, but I liked it a lot! The team is a really different version of the team then I’m used to (I mean minus Robin and add Terra, Jericho, and Tempest to the team, I guess it’s not that much of a difference). But to be fair I haven’t read a lot of the in-continuity Teen Titans comics either, so it could just be me. But I liked the different roster.

I think Raven and Starfire may be my favorite characters, I just wish there had been more of them. The teenager-ness of Tara and Vic was kind of annoying tbh, but it was well done. I just find the stereotypical CW/ABC Family teen drama stuff annoying in general because, at least for me, it was nothing of the sort. Beast Boy (or Changeling as I think he’s gonna he called in this series) is okay personality wise, but I think this take on his powers is what really makes his character interesting. He has to be around an animal to take on its form (at least that’s my understanding of it) which I think sets some interesting limitations on it. Overall I really did enjoy this a lot, which I can’t say is the same for most people who read this Earth One volume. I went ahead and ordered all of the ones I was missing from my collection so I’ll be picking them up soon.

    I REALLY enjoyed this!! The diversity in this Teen Titans chapter was so refreshing. A Navajo Raven?! Interracial relationship, and an adopted beast boy with two dads? Truly iconic. The plot was interesting and fast paced and now I’m sad I didn’t buy the rest of the volumes to immediately continue! Plus that mini plot twist took me out, I don’t know how I didn’t see it coming. Probably because I was severely interested in everyone’s story! Can’t wait to pick up the rest of the volumes!

    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. Interesting retake on the Teen Titans - though I don't recognize any of these characters.

    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! I've been excited for this book for as long as no as I've known about it.

    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.
