Episode 38: New Teen Titans

Welcome to Journey Into Misery, where I explain complicated comics characters, continuity and concepts to the patient and perpetually perplexed Helena Hart.

Titans Together! This week we’re talking about one of the biggest ongoing superhero comics of the 1980s, Marv Wolfman and George Perez’s New Teen Titans.

You can listen to JOURNEY INTO MISERY a number of ways, including Libsyn, iTunes or Stitcher. Alternatively, you could just click play on that little button below.

We have a Patreon to cover the hosting costs and hopefully be able to put out more shows that last longer. If you enjoy what we’re doing and want more, please take a look at the rewards we’ve got and consider signing up.

Bonus episodes

Every month on the Patreon, we do a few bonus episodes that supporters get advance access to. We wanted to make them available to everyone though, and some people have told us they want to support the show in a less linear fashion, so they are available for pay-what-you-want on Gumroad.

It’s important to us that they are available to everyone, and please feel free to take every one of the bonus episodes for free. However, if you do want to contribute to the show in any way, the option is there.

Image Gallery

As I go through the podcast, I bring up images to show Helena what a character looks like. You can follow along with this image gallery.


We’ve started doing monthly video episodes of Journey Into Misery, as well as irregular Let’s Play style videos.


We have a Facebook now, where we can keep in better contact with our listeners, and ask you guys questions about upcoming episodes.

One thought on “Episode 38: New Teen Titans”

  1. Hi folks listening through your old episodes so this will be ancient history for you, but thought you might find this interesting (sorry if you’ve received it lots already). The charming love machine that is Terry Long is a really transparent author insert for Marv Wolfman – Google a picture of Wolfman from the early 80s and it is pretty hard to miss. This is at its most cringe inducing during the wedding issue…
