Young adult author Kami Garcia writes her debut graphic novel with artist Gabriel Picolo, producing the first amazing installment of “Teen Titans.” The famous DC Comics character Raven is reintroduced as a young adult discovering her power, not through superhero battles but focusing on issues of identity as well as teen socialization in high school. Rachael (or Raven to her friends and family) suffers from amnesia after a car accident that takes her beloved step-mother’s life. In a complicated plot, Raven is sent to live in New Orleans with Natalie, a voodoo priestess, and her feisty daughter Max. Max helps Raven understand her ability to hear dark voices and make strange things happen to school bullies as Raven discovers supernatural powers and regains her memory. School friend Tommy gains her trust and a romance occurs with realistic high school drama and angst. The spare and edgy art uses a dark palette of colors, with Raven’s coloring amped up or toned down with purple hues according to her mood changes and power surges. Diversity in terms of race, sexuality, and the magical spirituality of voodoo add to the mystery as Raven faces both her past and her future. Fans of DC Comics “Teern Titans” will enjoy this engaging backstory.
