When a tragic accident takes the life of seventeen-year-old Raven Roth's foster mom-and Raven's memory-she moves to New Orleans to live with her foster mother's family and finish her senior year of high school.
Starting over isn't easy. Raven remembers how to solve math equations and make pasta, but she can't remember her favorite song or who she was before the accident.

    Thus far, all three DC Ink graphic novels have been nothing short of excellent, adding new wrinkles to the early years of three of DC's greatest heroines. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Lizzy Garcia Jul 2, 2019

    Overall, of the YA graphic novels, I have read for both DC Ink and DC Zoom, Teen Titans: Ravenis the best one yet. The story is engaging and endearing. Raven's struggle of being a regular teenager is relatable and would remind anyone of their favorite teen drama from back in the day. That plus the sprinkling of supernatural elements makes this book a fun enough ride. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, Teen Titans: Raven should appeal to the right kind of reader. The art work is so good that I kept on going because I just wanted to see what else Picolo had up his sleeve. I think this is worth checking out for that alone. If you are looking for a great story about Raven, look elsewhere. Read Full Review
