Following on the heels of their New York Times bestselling YA graphic novel Teen Titans: Raven, writer Kami Garcia and artist Gabriel Picolo are back for Teen Titans: Beast Boy, debuting in September 2020 from DC Comics. The book is officially available for pre-order as of Thursday, and to celebrate, the publisher and creators released a sneak peek at some of the interior art.
In a tweet celebrating the pre-order launch, Picolo said, “[T]his is a book about my all time favorite character.”

On her own timeline, Garcia thanked readers for making Teen Titans: Raven a bestseller.
Given the success of Teen Titans: Raven, it seems likely that Teen Titans: Beast Boy will also hit the bestseller list — especially now that The New York Times has reinstated the graphic novel bestseller list. Although DC shuttered its Ink imprint earlier this year, the publisher still plans to release previously-announced Ink titles like Beast Boy under its DC Kids and DC labels (ages 8-12 and 13+, respectively). Garcia’s and Picolo’s new book is just one of many DC books aimed at young readers hitting shelves in 2020.
Teen Titans: Beast Boy hits shelves September 8, 2020. Check out the full synopsis and a sneak peek at interior pages below, then be sure to pre-order your copy today.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Kami Garcia (Beautiful Creatures) and artist Gabriel Picolo, the creative duo behind the smash hit Teen Titans: Raven, take you on a journey of self-discovery and acceptance, while reminding us the value of true friendship — especially when life gets wild.
Garfield Logan has spent his entire life being overlooked. Even in a small town like Eden, Georgia, the 17-year-old with green streaks in his hair can’t find a way to stand out — and the clock is ticking. Senior year is almost over. If Gar doesn’t find a way to impress the Chosen Ones — the social elite at Bull Creek High School — he will never know what it’s like to matter. Gar’s best friends, Stella and Tank, don’t understand why he cares what other people think. They miss their funny, pizza-loving, video game-obsessed best friend.
Then Gar accepts a wild dare out of the blue. It impresses the Chosen Ones and his social status soars. But other things are changing, too. Gar grows six inches overnight. His voice drops and, suddenly, he’s stronger and faster. He’s finally getting everything he wanted, but his newfound popularity comes at a price. Gar has to work harder to impress his new friends. The dares keep getting bigger and the stakes keep getting higher.
When Gar realizes the extent of his physical changes, he has to dig deep and face the truth about himself — and the people who truly matter — before his life spirals out of control.
