Sunday Soliloquy

Filed under: new teen titans, sunday soliloquy — Tom Bondurant @ 10:06 pm
The New Teen Titans kicked off its second year with a three-issue “Search For The Doom Patrol’s Killers” arc. (Yes, there was a time, not all that long ago, when the Doom Patrol was most famous for being dead.) Of course, all the Titans had parental issues, so this gave Gar the chance to explore his.

Gar spends most of the arc out for the blood of General Zahl and Madame Rouge, the DP’s old enemies. He even gets what he wants, after a fashion; and so learns a valuable lesson. Take it away, Raven:

“Bloodthirsty Gar” would show up again, most notably right after the events of “The Judas Contract.” For a while, though, he coped pretty well.

[Scans from, respectively, “Revolution!” in The New Teen Titans vol. 1 #14, December 1981, and “The Brotherhood Of Evil Lives Again!” in issue #15, January 1982. Written by Marv Wolfman, pencilled by George Perez, inked by Romeo Tanghal, colored by Adrienne Roy, and lettered by Ben Oda (#14) and John Costanza (#15).]
