In 1982, Marv Wolfman & George Pérez took the New Teen Titans on a camping trip in a four-issue miniseries that revealed untold stories from the backgrounds of the team’s newest members. The original Tales of the New Teen Titans series is a beloved entry in the iconic series, and now that the Titans are the premiere superteam in the DC Universe, it’s time to put a spotlight on the team’s members once again. DC has announced Tales of the Titans, a new four-issue miniseries spinning out of Tom TaylorNicola Scott‘s soon-to-launch Titans ongoing series. The series, which will sport main covers by Scott paying homage to Pérez’s covers for the original series, will feature stories by different creative teams, and explore new chapters in the pasts of Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy, and Troia. 

Here’s how DC describes July’s first issue, a Starfire-centric issue written by Shannon Hale & Dean Hale and illustrated by Javier Rodríguez:

Her huge heart, huger hair, and fiery fists have made Starfire a fan-favorite member of the team! When a spaceship bearing Tamaranean markings crash-lands on Earth, Starfire goes on a solo mission to uncover its origins. But what awaits her on that journey will bring her back to the earliest days of her youth, to memories of two sisters eternally at war…and perhaps the chance to keep history from repeating itself.

Tales of the Titans #1 will feature variant covers by Stanley “Artgerm” Lau (open-to-order), Rodríguez (1:25 ratio), Fatima Wajid (1:50 ratio), and Chris Samnee (foil).

Future issues of the series will feature a Raven-centric story by Tini Howard and Eleonara CarliniSteve Orlando and Kath Lobo delving into Donna Troy, and Andrew ConstantTed Brandt, and Ro Stein with a Beast Boy tale.

If there’s one thing I hope comes out of this series, it’s that Gar Logan finally stops calling himself Beast Boy. Guy’s gotta be in his twenties at this point. It’s embarrassing. 

We’ll find out if that happens when Tales of the Titans #1 arrives in stores and digitally on Tuesday, July 18th.
