Amy Wolfram writes TEEN TITANS: YEAR ONE

Newsarama reports: In 2007, the publisher will launch five Year One miniseries, each one designed to streamline, clarify, or emphasize the start of a character(s) who will be playing major roles in the months to come. The five series are:

Green Arrow: Year One by Andy Diggle and Jock
Metamorpho: Year One by Dan Jurgens
Teen Titans: Year One by Amy Wolfram and Karl Kerschl
Black Lightning: Year One by Jen Van Meter and Cully Hamner
Huntress: Year One by Ivory Madison (w) and artist tba

NRAMA: The Teen Titans – which incarnation are we talking about?

DD: That’s the whole thing. We want to go back and show what the earliest team was, and rebuild that origin, too. I don’t think we’ve ever done a Year One with that team before, and by doing this, it will allow us to look at the relationship between Robin and Wonder Girl and Kid Flash, Speedy, Aqualad and the rest as the team is built, while showing some of the lesser-known Teen Titans characters along the way.

And also, because we’re in the position of creating the Titans East, we thought it would be a good time to go back and establish the roots a little more of the original team.

Karl Kerschl recently provided art on the ROBIN series. And fans of the Teen Titans animated series will recognize Amy Wolfram as one of the series story editors and writers. Amy is a brilliant choice to write the year one series; She's scripted awesome episodes like SISTERS, TERRA, BETRAYAL, CALLING ALL TITANS and THINGS CHANGE. Great creative team for this special project! Big props to DC for securing them!

It's also long overdue for DC to retell the Titans early years. Aside from SECRET ORIGINS ANNUAL #3, the Titans origins haven't been retold since 1978!

    I know I should be happy with what I'm given.
    And this is definetely one of the big good news.
    But you know what would make our day, if DC gave us a definite answer for Games or even better if they said that their holding back other Perez projects so he could concentrate on the GN.

    I can dream, can't I...

    Amy Wolfram? Karl Kerschl? Who are these people?

    Bring on the A-Listers! We want Marv Wolfeman! George Perez! Geoff Johns! Tony Daniel!

    I'm not gonna buy these if there are writers of poor quality.

    Amy Wolfram is A-list quality. And Karl's art is pretty darn cool. I am REALLY looking forward to this!

    Okay. I've decided to buy the Titans Year One miniseries, but I'm still unsatisfied with the creative team.

    I'll also buy the Huntress and Metamorpho series, since I also read Birds of Prey and Outsiders
