    Geez, writers are getting driven away from this title at an alarming rate. I suspect it has a lot to do with Didio taking a heavy hand in "editing" the book, which has got to be so frustrating for the writers that they finally decide that it's not worth the trouble.

    I'm curious about why he decided to leave, assuming it was his decision (which he says it was, but we can't be too sure).

    I don't find this shocking given the sheer amount of people who hated his take on TT.

    Myself, while I don't read it I know people who know Sean _very_ well. I guess he said to them he intentionally did shocking things just to get some exposure for himself and the series. Kind of sad, if he focused more on simply making it a good book I think it would have been better received. The numbers on the book really have taken a hit in the past year, and I'm sure the new blood will be welcome.

    McKeever had almost a 2-year-run on the book. The only writer who wasn't long for the series was Beechen. And thank god!

    Who was it that said Dan DiDio was the issue?

    http://www.newsarama.com/comics/0309...-McKeever.html

    When contacted by Newsarama about his reasons for leaving Teen Titans, McKeever said, “I did have future plans for Teen Titans but I just found myself needing to step away. I guess I'd have to chalk this one up to the vague and oft-used ‘creative differences.’ It happens.

    “I do still have a working relationship with Dan and DC, as evidenced by my coming onboard as writer of the Ravager serial. I'm also currently talking to Dan about a couple cool and exciting possibilities for the future.”

    I find myself agreeing with Shrike a lot lately.....

    You can count me among those who hated his run. I kept hoping the McKeever who wrote for Marvel would eventually show up, he didn't.

    As for him intentionally doing shocking things, it shows. There's no rhyme nor reason to some of the stories other than to shock. Terror Titans as a whole was like that. It's a shame that they used that mini as the vehicle to introduce Static to the DCU.

    REALLY.

    Tell me, who are these people who know me so well? Because I've never said anything remotely like that to ANYONE.

    The final straw and Mr. McKeever , nothing against your work as a whole...its like every issue you either did 3 things :


    1.) A team member quits to never return again , except issues later. Usually they quit crying ...and leave.

    2.) The shock factor was too insane and stupied. From Miss Martian waking up in a truck stop giving it up to truckers , to Marvin being mauled by an evil devil dog.

    3.) With Jamie Reyes title being ended , you could have actually developed Reyes . Instead as one guy in my LCS said "Who is this new Blue Beetle ? And why do we care if he argues with Red Devil a lot ?"



    You had a good team possibly. But the work done on the series was just....bad. I dropped it at 64. I saw previews of a 30 yearold Kid Eternity and it made me wonder how bad this title could get.

    Just being honest...it wasn't your best I feel. Maybe the Ravager back up will be good. But as a whole Teen Titans just wasn't.
