Teen Titans
When a tragic accident takes the life of seventeen-year-old Raven Roth's foster mom--and Raven's memory--she moves to New Orleans to live with her foster mother's family and finish her senior year of high school.Starting over isn't easy. Raven remembers how to solve math equations and make pasta, but she can't remember her favorite song or who she was before the accident. When strange things start happening--impossible things--Raven starts to think it might be better not to know who she was in her previous life.But as she grows closer to her foster sister, Max, her new friends, and Tommy Torres, a guy who accepts her for who she is now, Raven has to decide if she's ready to face what's buried in the past...and the darkness building inside her.

A solid 4 or even 5 stars for the art.The story however, was a little bit underwhelming. I feel like I already know this and that Raven deserves more. This was like a story of Raven discovering her powers and origin but Raven was not the Raven I know from the Teen Titans series.So, in short: The art is amazing is expected but it could have used a better storyline!

It will hit stores on July 2nd, 2019. Rachel Roth (also called Raven) is a 17-year-old high school sophomore who was involved in a motor vehicle accident (MVA) with her adoptive mother.

Teen Titans Raven is a graphic novel written by Kami Garcia and illustrated by Gabriel Picolo. It will hit stores on July 2nd, 2019. Rachel Roth (also called Raven) is a 17-year-old high school sophomore who was involved in a motor vehicle accident (MVA) with her adoptive mother. This results in a chain of events that leads Raven to her aunt, who is a voodoo priestess, and her cousin Max, who also possesses supernatural powers. Raven suffers unfortunate side effects from the MVA that result in her questioning who she is. The novel takes us from the MVA into a journey where Raven begins to understand her past and make plans for her future. The story also takes us through the development of Raven’s relationship with a boy from her local high school named Tommy. This relationship is not what it seems and results in conflict.The novel starts with a bang (literally) and keeps my attention until chapter 15. I greatly appreciate the diversity inclusion throughout the novel. We see illustrations of Latina, lesbian, and African American women (i.e., army of ghosts). I also appreciated the integration of Dracula, the 1897 Gothic horror novel by Irish author Bram Stoker. The main characters are likable and relatable. The dialogue and interactions between the teenagers are appropriate and developmentally correct. The illustrations are on point with cool trendy clothing, hairstyles, and electronic gadgets. On a side note, for Saga readers, the cat in the tarot reader’s room reminds me of Lying Cat from Saga! The reason this graphic novel did not earn five stars begins on chapter 15. Raven just has too many powers and they are introduced too quickly. She can read minds, make things happen, and now has astral projection! We also find out who her biological father is, and that is also surprising. All of this made the story muddy for me and slightly rushed. Although, I greatly appreciate the inclusion of diverse characters, I would have made the illustrations of the army of ghosts a bit ghostlier. I clearly saw and felt the historical context, but it wasn’t eerie enough for my liking.Overall, I enjoyed this graphic novel so much that I will include it on my monthly subscription at my local comic book store. This a good read for young girls and women who are unsure about reading graphic novels.

Before I read this eGalley, I had never read anything about this member of the Teen Titans. Or any of the Teen Titans, to be honest. I read my copy of this book and then talked to my husband about the character. My only experience with the Teen Titans prior to this is the rather silly television cartoon. I'm glad I read this graphic novel. It changed my opinion of the Teen Titans. I'm anxious to read more!Not sure what more knowledgeable Teen Titans fans will think of this book. As a newcomer to Teen Titans and Raven, I loved it! Not going to fall into discussions of continuity, character development, etc etc....because I knew nothing about Raven before reading this book. For me, the story was engaging. I like the character. And the story kept my full attention from beginning to end. The basics: Raven Roth is 17 when her foster mother is killed in a car accident. Sent to live with her foster mom's sister, Raven has lost her memory. She doesn't remember who she is...she doesn't remember her foster mom...she doesn't even remember what food or candy she likes. She just knows something is wrong. Loud noise bothers her. And she can sense the emotions and thoughts of everyone around her. Traversing high school is very very very difficult when the very thoughts of the other students are a constant bombardment. Add in the visions, nightmares and feelings of dread, and Raven feels like she is going crazy. Who is she? Why can she do the things she does? As she slowly discovers the truth and learns to control her "gifts,'' she realizes there is a lot more to her powers than hearing thoughts.I love the artwork in this book! Even in the unfinished pages of a digital galley copy, I could tell the art is just outstanding! It makes the story pop and conveys the emotions of a confused, lost teenage girl who doesn't understand what is happening to her. I enjoyed watching this character develop from a scared teenage girl into a much stronger, determined fledgling super through the course of this story. She learns what family is....learns lessons on trusting people and betrayal....and discovers that she has more strength, intelligence and potential than she ever dreamed. Lovely origin story! I am very much enjoying these updated tales about DC teenage superheroes. I recently read another new YA graphic novel about Catwoman that gave some new dimensions to the character. I liked this new look at Raven even more! I'm glad I read this book! The art is outstanding....the plot line is awesome! I have officially changed my opinion of the Teen Titans now that I've read a serious story about one of them. I look forward to learning more about the other members of the team, and reading more about Raven. **I voluntarily read an advanced readers copy of this book from DC Entertainment via NetGalley.

The plot is very basic, but it answers the story of how Raven came to be who she is and the awakening of her powers well enough. I would have liked a little more...personality, I suppose, in Raven. She seems a little flat, as the only two emotions she really seems to have are fear and anger. The ending also seems open-ended, perhaps for future books? The artwork is very atmospheric, staying almost entirely in shades of gray, black, purple, and white. The detail is quite good, and the font is easy enough to read (a plus for those of us with less than stellar eyesight). 3.5/5 stars. Another excellent contribution to the DC Ink lineup!Blog | Twitter | Bloglovin | Instagram |

    More like 2.5 stars, but I'll round up because I liked the last few pages.Since I first read her debut back in 1980 (She's 39? Doesn't look a day over 17 here.), Raven has not had much of a personality, so it was nice to see someone at least try to make her human. The writing is a little cliched -- starting with the amnesia storyline, for instance -- and the art a little rough in places, but I'd pick up a second volume if one came along, which is more than I can say for the Super Sons: The Polar More like 2.5 stars, but I'll round up because I liked the last few pages.Since I first read her debut back in 1980 (She's 39?

I wish the writer had been more thoughtful about what she chose to include in this story. It felt like this was written within five minutes, with little thought put into it.I can say that this was a fairly quick read, I believe it only took me half-an-hour to read in its entirety. It was enjoyable at some moments, but it also had its fair-share of flaws, unfortunately. I was looking forward to reading this one, but it just did not come through for me in content.

The illustrations are gorgeous and well done. I was not thrown off by any of the transitions. I cannot wait for this book to be published!

And she doesn't come across as whiny, or obnoxious, just a teenager who has some bizarre things going on. it's short, so the read time won't be long. It is to be part of a series, however, and the ending definitely makes that clear (no spoilers!). And, rare for me, it's a series that I will happily continue reading, even as a graphic novel. I think my 12yo daughter will *also* enjoy this. NOTE: My arc does have color in it, so that is what I've based my review on? It may change before the final book is printed, however.

Suffering from memory loss, she starts a new life in New Orleans under the care of her aunt.Garcia's clear enthusiasm for this character coupled with Picolo's gorgeous artwork have come together perfectly to produce a strong introduction to carry this series forward. All is introduced at the perfect pace, but long-time Teen Titans fans will still be thrilled with the appearance of some infamous foes. Perhaps my favorite part of this was the new family that takes Raven in and helps her grow. Though she struggles greatly with remembering who she is and rediscovering the truth of her powers, her aunt and sister support her through a transition into a new life. I would highly recommend this to both new and old fans of the Teen Titans franchise, the vision of Raven that Garcia and Picolo have brought to life is my favorite that I've ever seen and I'm eagerly awaiting the next installment. I received my copy of Teen Titans: Raven from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    Advanced Reader CopyLoved the art even though my ARC was just the inks. Beyond that the origin story was a little boring and overall forgettable. This is more high school drama than thrilling action story similar to Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane, Volume 1 but without the charm and humor. Overall, this was a disappointment that did not leave me wanting more.

I will say that the art is really pretty and there’s one or two cute moments; also some great diversity among the cast of characters. 3/5 Stars.

    Teen Titans: Raven is basically Raven's origin story, filled with teen angst, friendship, family, and a little romance. This was a really fun read and it was nice to have a graphic novel completely about Raven. The artwork was awesome (even for an incomplete arc) and was very stylized. Overall this was a great graphic novel.

    I went into this book expecting it to be pretty mediocre, since any DC related books I’ve read have been a bit of a letdown, but I found this book highly enjoyable! Raven has always been my favorite Teen Titan, and Kami Garcia managed to create a unique version of Raven’s backstory, while keeping the important bits and managing to write Raven with her charm and sarcastic attitude that I’ve known and loved over the years. Can’t wait for this book to come out so more people can read it!

    As a long-time comics reader, I'm conflicted about this take on Raven. While this was enjoyable, and Picolo's artwork is great... this is in no way recognizable as the Raven I know. The representation of voodoo is also strange. I spent most of the time I was reading this confused about what was going on because of my background knowledge on the character, and uncomfortable with knowing that I was reading a story which borrowed from a tradition that is not that of the author.

As a school librarian, what I plan to do is get one of my students to read and give me a better idea of whether we should purchase this title, as I'm very conflicted at the moment. I worry that it's confusing to readers wanting to get deeper into DC comics, and potentially insulting to my 98% Black population of students who are primarily Haitian Creole.I also have quibbles about the stereotypical depiction of "popular girls" in a text that's clearly trying to be more woke, and with some of the more trope-y elements. I think that if you take away the DC element, you have a pretty comic with a storyline plucked from a Joss Whedon show's writers' room (with maybe one writer from American Horror Story poking their head in for a moment).

I thought the characterization for Raven was pretty good for the most part. I liked her and wanted to know what was going on. The side characters were all pretty flat though. Popular bully. Cardboard cut-out friends. "Hot" guy who's too nice, so of course he has a very easy-to-figure-out secret. Typical nice mom types. Raven's new friend, Nola, had a secret that didn't come up until the halfway mark or later, and I still don't really understand the point of her "abilities." It didn't seem very useful, and since they introduced it so late, it felt incredibly random. The ending felt rushed and sudden. Like Raven gets her memories back, and then immediately realizes she has powers and uses them to do a whole lot of nothing, which made the entire plot feel kind of pointless. I didn't really like this. It wasn't very engaging. The build-up wasn't very good. There was too much teen drama and angst that didn't feel natural at all. But I like the concept of the plot, I just wish it had been executed better.

My only other comment is I have no knowledge or experience with the world of spiritual guides, tarot card readers, or empaths so I can't speak to that aspect of the story. I just hope that what is portrayed in this story is accurate to that world.On the NetGalley page it says this copy isn't in the final full color, which makes me really intrigued in what the final version will look like. I really enjoyed the illustration style and have heard many great things about Gabriel Picolo.Can't wait to read the final print copy!

    Interesting version of the origin story of Raven of the teen titans. I don't think I was ever aware of her background other than she was the child of a demon and a human.
