Teen Titans: Raven by Kami Garcia and Gabriel Picolo was a smash hit original graphic novel for DC Comics last year. The best-selling of all the what-once-were Ink or Zoom OGNs intended for younger readers in bookstore and bookfair markets, it made the booksale charts, and burned through a number of printings. It was, to put it bluntly, a surprise for DC Comics. Its follow up, Teen Titans: Beast Boy, also by Kami Garcia and Gabriel Picolo, is planned for publication in September.
But for November 10th, DC is planning to put both books out in hardcover, slipcased together at more of a premium price point. Here's a visual, and the solicitation, but I presume that DC INK logo will be scrubbed off the eventual published comics. We know how much President Pam Lifford hates imprints. This is also part of a new drive by DC Comics to increase the amount of slipcased sets they sell, across the board – but especially for their younger audience-aimed titles.
