Titans Together by Joe Bennett by RalphNiese Titans Together by Joe Bennett by RalphNiese
Aah...remember good times when Joe Bennett and Ralph Niese kicked off Teen Titans every month from 89 to 92? No?
Well, that actually never happened, but would have been great!
I dearly love Joe´s pencils and work all arround cause Joe uses very cool angles and perspectives that are far from imaginations i have and a superb understanding of human anatomy! and a kind of great vibe of George Peréz´s detailness!
I was cursing myself to not have made the inks on original size but on half the size with a tiny brush, which was pain in the ass but worth the fun!

Also did this for practicing for inks over Yildiray Cinar´s Pencils for Noble Causes! Which will get COOL! Recently recieved the script and yep! It´s cool! :D

Great work!
I like how you make this vintage, Golden Age looking of your comic art. Keep it up!

Not to rain on anyone's parade but um, Aquaman was never actually a member of the Teen Titans.

Perhaps because he's not a teen...hence the superhero name AquaMAN.

Great color and inks though!

i thought it´s AquaLad, but the pencils show him not with his typical black hair(maybe i´m in the wrong universe), so i thought it has to be a special wish from the commissioner of Mr.Bennett(?). You´re righty right!
thanks alot!

I think that was suppose to be Jericho (Deathstroke's son, his costume was black & purple)... Besides that the colors are gorgeous!

Irrespective of whether it's Aqualad or Aquawhoever, you're inking and color, as always, is brilliant. I'm such a huge fan (can you tell?).

Keep up the fantastic work.

Have you considered applying for a job as the monthly Teen Titans artist, you would be ggrrreeeaaattt at it!

Seriously, Mike McKone did some awesome work until he left, but DC hasn't given a proper artist to the series in a while and it's really hurt the overall quality of the book.

i like in a way Julian Lopéz on Titans, but the story sucks in a way - all the repeating same. i´m a fan also of Birds of Prey, but the artist now on this book seems to be not a really fan of the characters - it looks all rushed - i also don´t know what Joker has to do now in this book *sigh*. the Legion would also be great - i love them really hard, but i haven´t checked them out in a while (just the final crisis of Peréz)--- errr...oops, don´t wanted to rant like that, but somehow DC has its ups and downs... :D

There's always Blue Beetle, that's well, pretty well amazing all around. I just love the designs for this series, they are incredibly ingenuous. You should really check it out if you haven't already.

hmmm, it doesn´t look lumpy at all :D i will check out if i can find a trade of it. i´m sure a fan of heroes that don´t want to be heroes and are also teenagers. Green Lantern Corps plays with that well, too - also a series i just love and Patrick Glason is a real hitter to the eye!
Brave and the Bold is a cool series, Secret Six and JSA - that is so my monthly favourites i purchase.

It reminds me of all those old annuals I used to love from that era. I especially love the blue shine on the outer edges of Nightwing.

sadly i just can remember Superman and his death from this time - never read it lol. i have only a collection of ´86 crisis and even that is "recolored" - hmm, oldest DC stuff i have is from the 90ies is 1999.
merci mon frére!

I HATE when they collect old comics on glossy paper. They either recolor them, or worse- if they have the original colors, it's just garish & blinding without the cool yellowing & fading of the paper.

RalphNiese Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2008  Professional General Artist
but the last Hulk one was cool. i sometimes buy them - like the Crisis specials - to see what the Kirby ones look like and they match with the originals good and are printed on newspaper.

They should reprint them the same way the originally looked. Crooked colors & all!
