Teen Titans Snow!
I wrote the second story in this snow-themed issue!
Starfire is “Snowbunny’s Fool” when Robin takes the team to a ski resort—but it’s cold-weather-hater Raven who really surprises her teammates! And back in Titans Tower, things go awry when watching “Friendly the Snowman” provides the wrong kind of inspiration!
Look for the issue in stores January 23rd!

In this issue, the Teen Titans are going on a “Picnic”! Well, everyone but Raven, who doesn’t quite understand the invitation/riddle and is about to explode from frustration. Then, Beast Boy stomps off from Fiesta Friday dinner when he discovers his teammates chowed down on every single vegan burrito. Can he make it on his own? It’s “Food for Thought,” if nothing else!
Teen Titans Go #30 is in stores 9/19.
