Newsarama has just posted an interview with Dan Didio on Teen Titans.
Yesterday, we spoke with Teen Titans writer Sean McKeever about the series, the team, and the upcoming threat of the Terror Titans. McKeever also mentioned that, so far, things are going swimmingly with the series’ new editor – a guy named Dan DiDio, who also happens to be Senior VP-Executive Editor of the DC Universe.
NRAMA: From your point of view, in terms of your story and guiding the book, how does a new series running in parallel impact what you’re doing?
DD: It doesn’t impact us at all. That particular book will have its own style, tone and characters. The good part about the Teen Titans book is that we have a series of characters in here that only appear here, as I mentioned. Nothing against the Titans book, but Nighwing has his own series, Starfire is appearing in a miniseries now, Cyborg and Raven will also have their own miniseries shortly. Everybody there is seen in other places. Not that it lessens that book any, but that’s not what we’ve got with Teen Titans. If you want to see this version of the Titans with, say, Ravager and Miss Martian, this is where you’ve got to be.
NRAMA: Okay – to take a look at the big picture Mr. editor – what does a Teen Titans story have to have in it to make it a good “Teen Titans” story?
DD: What we’re really trying to do right now, actually is try to establish every character in their own right, and figure out what role they serve,. Not only in regards to the team, but also in regards to the greater superhero community. What is the purpose of the Teen Titans versus any other team? This book and team should really have a different point of view and tonality.
