Almost 40 years ago, writer Marv Wolfman gifted the pages of DC Comics with the mysterious young mystic named Raven: the character who would bring the New Teen Titans together as a team in order to fight her demonic father Trigon. The book became a smash sensation, and decades later, the character of Raven would become a household name thanks to the massive success of the Teen Teens animated show. And now, Wolfman returns to write the latest adventures of the Titan’s magical powerhouse in the new mini-series Raven: Daughter of Darkness.
This new series opens with Raven, who goes by the name Rachel Roth, trying to get along with a group of ordinary teenagers. But seeing as very few of her friends were spawned by a world-conquering demon and then subsequently raised in a cult in another dimension, they might find it hard to relate. Also making a welcome return in this new mini-series are Wolfman’s other famous ’80 supernatural creation, the mysterious cabal called Night Force. Will they tempt Raven to join their group? Find out in this exciting new chapter in the life of DC’s premiere teenage witch!
