'Teen Titans: Earth One, Volume 2' by Jeff Lemire with art by Andy MacDonald imagines an alternate origin for the famous DC team. I actually don't know what the official origin is for this team, but this isn't a bad one.
I haven't read Volume 1 of this series, but this one starts off at a quick clip. Cyborg, Terra, Beast Boy and Aqualad are in hiding. They are being hunted down by scary grownups who want to use their newfound powers. The kids don't even really understand what has happened to them. We learn that the arrival of Starfire has caused this. Starfire and Raven are also in hiding, but they are going to need to join the fight as a new group of kids called the Titans is sent to find them. This new group includes Wally, Cassie and a character named Kole that I'd never heard of. Can the confusion of new powers be overcome so that a team can form to fight back?
I liked it, but reading the first volume would be recommended. I really like this alternate version of things. The confusion and fear that Cyborg especially has is really good. The art fell right into the medium range. It didn't wow me, but I didn't hate it. A nice read.
I received a review copy of thie graphic novel from DC Entertainment and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
