Teen Titans:
The Early Archives

Archived: 1965-1979

Robin! Kid Flash! Aqualad! Wonder Girl! After their debut in the Brave and the Bold and Showcase, the Teen Titans were awarded their own series in 1966 and began their teen-oriented adventures, with artist Nick Cardy and writer, Bob Haney.

The series lasted 43 issues and was later briefly revived in the late seventies with Teen Titans #44-53, written by Bob Rozakis. In its last issue, Teen Titans #53, the origin of the Teen Titans was revealed at last, with Speedy as one of the founding five.

From Teen Titans to Titans West, this page contains articles from 1965-1979.
