Unused pages from Teen Titans: Year One! I just dug these up from my old archives, and since most of them never made it to the trade, I figured I’d post them here for fans of the series.
The original concept was to do a two-page Beast Boy sequence at the end of each issue, telling the story of Beast Boy (always depicted as an animal) looking for the Teen Titans he’s heard so much about because he wants to join. He visits the locations from the story but is always too late to catch them. In the end, I guess he would have found them and he’d have been included in Teen Titans: Year Two. Presumably.
Anyway, only the first sequence got printed, but when someone actually noticed that we were doing something fun, we were ordered from on high to remove the Beast Boy story from the issues because “animals in the DC Universe don’t talk.”
So there you have it. We only finished three issues of ‘Beast Boy’ before it got cut. Hope you like ‘em!
Shout-outs to Amy Wolfram, Eddie Berganza, Serge LaPointe, Steph Peru and Romain Gaschet. Still one of my favourite projects ever.
