The bestselling young adult graphic novel by Kami Garcia and Gabriel Picolo, Teen Titans: Raven, continues to impress. According to a press release from DC on Wednesday, Teen Titans: Raven will go back to press for a third printing, just two months after being released in July. The success of the graphic novel is good news for DC Comics, which has seen its back catalog graphic novels decline in recent years. However, Teen Titans: Raven is not only selling well, but its selling to the young adult market, which represents an untapped market outside of the aging and insular direct market superhero fanbase.
Garcia and Picolo are already working on a follow-up set for release next year, Teen Titans: Beast Boy.
Check out the press release below:
DC announced today that TEEN TITANS: RAVEN, the fan-favorite young adult graphic novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Kami Garcia (Beautiful Creatures) and popular Instagram artist Gabriel Picolo, will go back to press for a third printing.
Originally released on July 2, the book will go to print for the third time following high demand from readers and rave reviews from critics at BOOK RIOT, POLYGON, HYPABLE, SCREENRANT, CBR and more! The book has also maintained a spot on PUBLISHERS WEEKLY's Bestsellers List three weeks in a row and held the seventh spot on Diamond's Top 100 Graphic Novels in June. Garcia and Picolo recently wrapped a 5-city book tour that ended at San Diego Comic-Con, selling out of copies in multiple locations.
TEEN TITANS: RAVEN is the debut graphic novel from Garcia and Picolo, and the first installment of a multi-part series that follows the coming-of-age journey of 17-year-old Rachel Roth. When a tragic accident takes the life of her foster mom—and Raven's memory—she moves to New Orleans to live with her foster mother's family. 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. Her past and present begin to collide when more strange things happen during her final year of high school.
Garcia and Picolo are continuing their Teen Titans adventures as they work on the second installment in the series: TEEN TITANS: BEAST BOY, set for release in Summer 2020. Fans can find a sneak peek of the forthcoming release in TEEN TITANS: RAVEN. Readers can find TEEN TITANS: RAVEN in their local comic stores, traditional booksellers, and on digital book platforms.
