Mike McKone & Geoff Johns on TEEN TITANS #50


With all the relentless Titans death, at least Titans fans now have something to look forward to: Mike McKone and Geoff Johns are returning to the Teen Titans for a story in issue #50!

The Pulse interviewed writers Writers Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning: "We're pretty busy with Nova and Conquest atm but have a Superman/Batman story in the works but that's a way off down the line and have a story in the DC Halloween Special featuring the return of a character very close to our hearts! Individually, Andy [Lanning] is inking Phil Jimenez on his upcoming Amazing Spider-Man issues and Mike McKone on a Teen Titans story for the #50 issue and an upcoming JLA story.

Fantastic news! I consider the three best Titans artists to be George PĂ©rez, Phil Jimenez and Mike McKone. This should be sweet!

UPDATE:
According to the DCU panel at Bristol (UK): Geoff Johns and Mike McKone are collaborating on a special story for issue #50.

Back on March 5, 2007,
Comics Continuum reported: "Beechen said there will be new members of Teen Titans. Speaking of the 50th issue, he said, "In addition to moving the story forward, it will be a celebration of everything that the Teen Titans have been.""

    They never call Eduardo Barreto for the anniversary issues. Why is that? He was a very emblematic Titan's artist

    "emblematic" must be PC for "terrible".

    I wouldn't call Barreto's artwork terrible. I have his run on New Titans vol. 2, and it's just as good as that of Perez or Garcia-Lopez.
    Remember, both Perez and Barreto were students of Garcia-Lopez. That's why their artwork is so alike. Jimenez was also a student of Perez. See the theme?
