SDCC 2007: Winick & Churchill on Titans East

Newsarama Announces: Titans East takes the spotlight as an upcoming [special] which will lead into a new ongoing series (which may or may not share the same name), though the line-up might not be what you expect. At the writing helm of a special and a follow-up monthly series will be Judd Winick, who plays things close to the vest with more announcements pending. Art on the new series will be by Ian Churchill.

Newsarama: Tell us a little bit about the concept. How much does this dovetail off of Geoff's run?

Winick: That would mean talking about the line-up . . . it is an amalgam of some of the characters from the Titans East story and some new ones. There's a lot of various wild cards.

    i'm not in love with this line up and i'm really not thrilled with winnick writing it. :( what a let down. i was soooo excited for a second titans book each month. oh well, i'll give it a try anyway.

    That's my thoughts too. Winnick would have been one of my last choices (Devin Grayson is last) based on his characterizations in outsiders.

    I REALLY wanted a Titans book with a writer and an artist that that would do the characters justice.

    I gave up on comics when they killed Donna for awhile and when I got back into it I found I really like the Teen Titans that Johns had developed, but since Crisis (which I did Not like) the book has really lost it's heart.

    DC thinks you can just use a successful title and throw in any character, but they don't seem to get that many fans associate characters and relationships with those titles.

    I am very reluctant to invest in new characters (and terrified if they bring back my favorites) with this current make a buck and kill 'em mentality.

    I have not decided if I will get it or not.

    Winnick writing it just killed any desire for me to read it. Knowing him, he'll have Power Boy bed nearly all the female members of the team within a week. Cyborg and Dove's personalities are going to do 180s from what they were before. Attention to detail will thrown out the window if it suits a storyline. And dysfunction instead of strong integrated family unit (what DC seems to be unaware/ignore is made Wolfman/Perez's run great) will rule the roost.

    Winnick would be an awesome writer for Marvel. I still haven't figured out why DC feels he is a great choice for their characters. But then again, Didio seems to feel copying Marvel in every aspect seems to be the way to go, so we shouldn't be surprised Winnick keeps getting the plum assignments.

    I was surprised to see that Hawk & Dove were in the line up. I think that Winnick needs to go back and read the original Hawk & DOve series with Dawn Granger in it to get a sense of her personality. While I enjoyed seeing her in the Titans books in the last couple of years, I think that they haven't really shown her for who she is. She's a strong woman that knows how to use her powers and what they mean. She was always more in tune with her abilities than Hank Hall ever was and picked things up faster. Bring back that character and quit making her a background person. I will say that I am pleased to see her with the long hair again. The way she was last drawn in the Titans she looked rather androgynous and that disturbed me.

    I'm willing to give Winick another chance, but if anymore characters suddenly start 'coming out of the closet' then I'm not going to bother picking up this one.

    I'm surprised at you guys. I like Winick!

    As for the roster, it is a bit of a let down, but then again, I wasn't too thrilled with the post-Graduation Day Titans or the One-Year Later group, so we'll see how this bunch pans out.

    (Damn! Still no Linda Danvers or Magenta!)

    is that blond girl Supergirl? Looks like her, but then again, every blond chick looks alike for some artists.
