    Actual Rating: 3.5 StarsRaven is my favorite hero from the DC world (I am a Marvel fan to be honest), I remember the excitement I had when I was in middle school and I wanted to go back home to watch Teen Titans!That's why I immediately ordered this when I saw it on Edelweiss (Thanks for the publisher for the E-ARC which does not affect my opinions on this).It is also drawn by Gabriel Picolo who I follow on Twitter and is a fan of! I feel that ra...

    I received an ARC of this book by DC Ink in exchange for an honest review. I LOVED THIS!! This story follows a seventeen-year-old girl named Raven. She loses her memory in a car accident that occurred. She now has to start over and live in a foster home, while also experiencing high school. The art in this was STUNNING! I loved the grey, black, and purple color palette. The illustrations were overall extremely well done and expressive. The roman...

    Raven’s back story in graphic novel format. Dark. Great artwork. Plenty of high school angst along with the supernatural.I’ve had this on my shelf from a conference last year. I was asked this week by a teenager why I didn’t read graphic novels. In consideration, I now realize you need to take the time to appreciate the art and realize it’s more serial than encapsulated. Reading to me is a movie or my own visual. A graphic novel has its o...

    2.5 stars"I'm seeing things and hearing voices . . . what if there's something wrong with me?" -- Rachel 'Raven' Roth, page 21I guess I'm just too much of a fan of voice actress Tara Strong's signature and often humorous vocal fry-styled performance of Raven in the animated Teen Titans and Teen Titans Go! series for this new interpretation to fully win me over. (Obviously it's not the most fair comparison at all, but that's the indelible version ...

    I received this graphic novel as an e-ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Teen Titans Raven is a graphic novel written by Kami Garcia and illustrated by Gabriel Picolo. It will hit stores on July 2nd, 2019. Rachel Roth (also called Raven) is a 17-year-old high school sophomore who was involved in a motor vehicle accident (MVA) with her adoptive mother. This results in a chain of events that leads Raven to her aunt, who is a voodoo...

    *I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review. Thanks DC Comics for sending me a copy!*Even though I didn’t have previous knowledge of Raven‘s origin, (I only knew her from the old Cartoon Network show), I didn’t have any trouble following what was happening and I actually really enjoyed the story! This book gave us a first glimpse of Raven copping with the lost of her mother, and having to adapt to her new life after everything tha...

    My husband is a big time comics fan and has been for 40+ years. He has a rather extensive collection and knows the background story and facts about almost every character. DC, Marvel, Indy.....he's read them all. I enjoy comics, too. But I'm definitely playing catch up when it comes to my knowledge base. I wasn't allowed to read comic books (unless they featured Disney characters) as a child. My mother didn't approve of them. Fifteen years ago wh...

  • Lizzy (Bent Bookworm)
    ~*Check out all my reviews over on The Bent Bookworm!*~ Teen Titans: Raven was fun and entertaining, even if you have next to zero knowledge of the world of Teen Titans. I've never seen any of the TV show/movie, and can count on one hand the number of comics I've read in general. I still thoroughly enjoyed this coming-of-age story for one of the main characters from Teen Titans. The plot is very basic, but it answers the story of how Raven came t...

    What I liked:I really liked the art style of this graphic novel, and Raven has always been my favourite of the Teen Titans. It was interesting to see a bit of her backstory.What I did not like:The writing was messy, and was pushed far too quickly. There wasn't any character development, and Raven's character which was so original throughout the tv show became a cliché teenager with no depth. I also really did not like the integration of voodoo c...

    More like 2.5 stars, but I'll round up because I liked the last few pages.Since I first read her debut back in 1980 (She's 39? Doesn't look a day over 17 here.), Raven has not had much of a personality, so it was nice to see someone at least try to make her human. The writing is a little cliched -- starting with the amnesia storyline, for instance -- and the art a little rough in places, but I'd pick up a second volume if one came along, which is...
  • laurel [suspected bibliophile]
    Rachel "Raven" Roth loses her memory and her mother in a car accident, and gets sent to live with her aunt and cousin in New Orleans. But something isn't right. Raven is hearing voices, and there's something weird going on with her family.Lemme be the first to say that aside from watching the cartoon a lot in the early 00s, I am not a Teen Titans fan. I haven't kept up with the show and I haven't read any of the comics. So me picking this up was ...

    *this review contains strong bias*Ok let's preface with this - I'm a Teen Titans fan. From the age of 13, I was in love with the CN show, comics and all the graphic novels - so this review is coming from someone who supports (most) Teen Titans content through and through. The first few pages of this book made me tear up, I felt like I was seeing an old friend again. (Yes, I know I sound a bit mad. Anyone who has had a long and unwavering obsessio...

    I really enjoyed this book. I am slowly learning more of the DC (and Marvel) Universe and this book helped me to learn about an interesting character with whom I was not previously familiar. The artwork worked for me and the story made sense. Raven and her fellow students all felt like teenagers, complete with crushes and drama. The representation seemed natural and organic, not shoe-horned in because they were checking off a box. Possible trigge...
  • Mikky (Nocturnal Predators Reviews)
    Raven has always been a fascinating character in the Teen Titans franchise to me. I love seeing the different renditions of her in different novels and tv shows. I loved the overall illustration style. It was rather detailed and set itself a part of the few other graphic novels I've read in the past. My only qualm about graphic novels is the lack of complexity in the characters. The format doesn't allow many building blocks for informing the read...
  • Helly
    My first Graphic Novel which has a super heroine protagonist. I love this so much. The artwork is amazing and I am dying for more!
  • Yursa Tahir
    Original rating 4.5 Raven is like my fav titan amd i was very excited to learn that she is the first one in the series. I loved it. Can't wait for beast boy's book.
  • julianna ➹
    i think that these dc ink novellas aren't working for me as much as i've expected them to :// Gabriel Picolo's artwork, of COURSE, was absolutely amazing (he is a drawing god) and I adored reading every single page, and I'm definitely going to be reading the Teen Titans: Beast Boy novel!! Heck yeah!I don't know what it is exactly that's lacking in these DC Ink Comics that prevent me from loving them to the fullest, but I think it's just that the ...

    I've received only a DC Ink Sampler of this graphic novel via Netgalley.I'VE BEEN A HUGE FAN OF GABRIEL PICOLO SINCE 2015 AND I'M SO ECSTATIC THAT HE FINALLY DID IT! HE FINALLY HAVE HIS WORK IN A GRAPHIC NOVEL BY DC. AAAAAHHHHH I JUST LOVE HIS ART However, as much as I loved the art style, the artist, and welp Raven (I've read a lot of graphic novels about Raven this year!), I think this introductions kind of fell off the mark for me. It's elevat...

    I've been excited for this one for a while because I'm a huge fan of Gabriel Picolo's Teen Titans art and I'm ecstatic he's now working on TT titles. I'm also a big fan of trying to marry the version of Raven from the cartoon Teen Titans with the actual comics. This is more or less an origin story for Raven, explaining who she is and what her powers are....kind of. We follow an amnesiac Raven navigating high school while experiencing strange drea...
  • Kristin
    This is a graphic novel about Raven from Teen Titans. We are introduced to Rachel Roth (Raven) as she scrambles to makes heads and tales of her life. Having been in an accident at the beginning of the graphic novel, she has lost her memory of everything. She's sent off to live with her aunt and cousin as she tries to gain her memory back. As if that isn't enough, she has been having these vivid dreams about a demon, and there's a voice inside her...
  • Kayla Brunson
    I really enjoyed Raven’s story! I’ve only seen the Teen Titan’s show a few times so I wasn’t too familiar with Raven’s backstory. I think Kami Garcia did a good job with Raven’s introduction. I did, however, miss her signature snark. Her backstory was awesome and we got some amazing graphics along the way. I loved the portrayal of saving yourself and the wonderful friendships presented here. I’m unsure if there will be another graph...
  • Fae Crate
    I absolutely loved reading Teen Titans: Raven! Garcia stayed very true to Raven's characters from the comic world while still bringing a young and fresh feel to her for a new story to tell. The illustrations are gorgeous and well done. I was not thrown off by any of the transitions. I cannot wait for this book to be published!
  • ♡Julalicious Book Paradise♡
    Thanks to my friend Max, I got to borrow his ARC copy while we were at Apollycon and I really enjoyed this. I didn't know a lot about teen titans so everything was really new to me so I feel like I'm going to learn along with her throughout this journey. :)Can't wait for the next one.
  • Angy Potter - Collector of Book Boyfriends
    I NEED THE NEXT ONE NOW!!!I loooove it!! Completely!!!Great job with the illustrations!!Full review to come!!
  • Meaghan
    Full review to come after 7/2/19, but this was seriously really cool and I absolutely loved the art!
  • Sam
    It was...alright. Not really what I was expecting or hoping for, though. I didn’t really feel connected to any of the characters, even though I did enjoy them, not even Raven. The plot was also waaaay too rushed, and I do NOT recommend this for people who don’t have any knowledge about Raven’s backstory because this would be very confusing for them. The art was great though!
  • Amanda Koger
    I'm really hoping as they write more of these that they will develop the story further. i LOVED this, however i feel like there was definitely some more development that could have been done plot wise and character wise. i wish that this had been longer
