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. When strange things start happening-things most people would consider impossible-Raven starts to think it might be better not to know who she was in her previous life.
But as she grows closer to her foster sister, Max, her new friends, and Tommy Torres, a guy who acc more

    The only gripe I have about the book is that it feels unfinished. Its as if DC Comics is holding up part two. Yes, I know I'm ridiculous, but you know what its like when you finish a good book. Now that I've gotten so deep into Raven, maybe it's time to find Garcia and Picolo's other graphic novels. As a matter of fact, I might have to give the whole DC Ink imprint a whirl.

    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

    Gabriel Picolos artwork serves the story quite well, simple enough to not overwhelmthe reader with visuals, but not so simple it fails to serve the story. DavidCalderon employs a less is more strategy to the coloring, sticking to ablueish/purple palette that suits Raven to a T. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - C.K. Stewart Jul 2, 2019

    Teen Titans: Raven is a solid graphic novel that likely would have been an excellent prose tie-in " the writing feels a lot more in line with the narrative trends of YA prose than what folks may likely expect of YA comics (which tend to feel a lot younger). That's not a negative, just a reflection that "young adult" doesn't always mean the same thing across mediums, and the DC Ink and Zoom lines don't seem to fully understand who they want their audiences for either line to be.

    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

    DC Comics News - Tony Farina Jul 5, 2019

    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

    DC Ink is three for three with this new OGN. Kami Garcia has given us a on Raven that feels so fresh to us readers. Her writing of Raven in this novel is just superb and gives us a Raven that we’ve never gotten in the OG DC Universe. Gabriel Picolo’s art is just amazing. His art can be very loose, but in a good way, especially when it perfectly captures the theme of this story. In the beginning of this book, Raven looses her memory is a car accident which takes the life of her foster mom, leaving Raven all alone. But with Max and her mother, she starts to develop a relationship with them. Max here is an all new character who’s not in the regular DC continuity, as she was created by Kami Garcia for this novel. They way she’s characte more
