Bleeding Cool scooped the news back in May that Kami Garcia and Gabriel Picolo were working on a threequel YA graphic novel to follow Teen Titans: Raven and Teen Titans: Beast Boy, called Teen Titans: Beast Boy Loves Raven. A break-out hit for DC Comics, it was the first of their kids/YA original graphic novels to get a sequel in Teen Titans: Beast Boy, and wI revealed there was a third chapter on the way. Rather than spotlighting a third member of the Teen Titans, the third book is Teen Titans: Beast Boy Loves Raven.

Teen Titans: Beast Boy Loves Raven
Written by Kami Garcia
Illustrated by Gabriel Picolo
Debuts in 2021
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Kami Garcia (Beautiful Creatures) and artist Gabriel Picolo, the creative duo behind the New York Times bestselling graphic novel Teen Titans: Raven, comes the romantic meetup we have all been waiting for!
It seems like years, but it's only been a few days since Raven Roth recovered her memories; trapped her demon father, Trigon, in her amulet; and had her heart broken for the first time. But she doesn't have time to think about the past…she has to focus on finding a way to get rid of Trigon for good.
Garfield Logan still can't believe he has powers that allow him to change into different animals, but the price of knowing that his parents kept this secret hidden from him just feels too high. And what's more, his difficulty controlling these abilities could have unexpected consequences.
Both are seeking answers from the one person who seems to have them all figured out: Slade Wilson.
When their paths converge in Nashville, Raven and Gar can't help but feel a connection, despite the secrets they both try to hide. It will take a great amount of trust and courage to overcome the wounds of their pasts. But can they find acceptance for the darkest part of themselves? Or maybe even love?
