Marv Wolfman and George Perez run on The New Teen Titans is comics at their best. It really set the standard for DC titles at the time. I remember being disappointed when Perez was taken off of JLA after only a handful of issues because that I think he is the perfect match for that title, but NTT was so good, I was quickly won over. It is too bad that the Teen Titans were never quite able to reach the same critical heights after Wolfman and Perez left though. The core team from their run has been scattered around, and I really like them best when they are featured together. I checked out the promotional images from the latest Teen Titans reboot and while I was hoping for a return of a more traditional team, it seems that DC is going in a different direction. Oh well, at least I have the long-awaited Wolfman/Perez NTT graphic novel, Games, to look forward to.
