10 Teen Titans Graphic Novels You Must Read Before You Die

DC's Premiere Teenage Superhero Team's Greatest Stories Ever Told!

DC Comics

The Teen Titans have been around in one form or another since the team first debuted in 1964's The Brave and the Bold #54. Over the years, the team's roster has included some of DC's greatest superheroes who happened to be sidekicks to older heroes.

Since the series began, it included Robin, Kid Flash, Red Arrow, Crush, Roundhouse, and Djinn. Eventually, that roster changed with a lineup consisting of Nightwing, Donna Troy, Beast Boy, Raven, Miss Martian, and Steel.

Because of the series' popularity, it has made the leap over to animation and even live action with a new series hitting the airwaves in 2018. With so many decades of stories sitting on the shelf, there are hundreds to choose from when attempting to determine the ten greatest of them all.

The stories on this list are the best Teen Titans, New Teen Titans, and Titans books that have been published since 1965, but there are many more to check out.

10. Teen Titans Earth One

DC Comics

After Geoff Johns left the Titans series, the team featured some hit-or-miss issues. The New 52 version of the team was pretty much despised by anyone who read it, which left a lot to be desired for DC's best teen superhero team. Fortunately, not every story published in this period followed continuity.

Teen Titans: Earth One was thankfully, not a part of the normal DC continuity, and stood as a separate graphic novel. The book introduced new versions of Jericho, Beast Boy, Cyborg, Terra, and Raven as they come to terms with their powers while dealing with their own mysterious connection to one another, Deathstroke, and Cyborg's mom.

Jeff Lemire put together the lineup as the book's writer. His words were put to page beautifully by the artistic talents of Terry and Rachel Dodson.

Teen Titans: Earth One followed other Earth One titles in DC's publication history by offering a new take on an old character... or characters in this case. It offered a modern look at the Titans franchise, which appealed to new and old readers alike.
