By the time the Silver Age rolled around, teenage sidekicks had been a staple of superhero comics for a long time. But as popular as they were, these young heroes-in-training never considered forming a junior Justice League. That all changed with the debut of Teen Titans in 1964 when Robin, Kid Flash and Aqualad united for the first time to fight crime and injustice. Later joined by Wonder Girl and Speedy, the Teen Titans quickly became the most iconic team of super-teens of all time.
Teen Titans: The Silver Age Vol. 2 collects Teen Titans #12-24 and features an amazing array of talented creators such as Bob Haney, Marv Wolfman, Len Wein, Nick Cardy, Neal Adams, Gil Kane and Wally Wood.

About the Author
Born in 1926, Robert G. Haney grew up in Philadelphia and received an M.A. from Columbia University in New York City. He entered the comics field in 1948, writing war, crime and Western stories for a wide variety of publishers, including Fawcett, Quality, Fox, Harvey, Toby, Hillman and St. John. By 1956, however, he was working almost exclusively for DC, where he would remain until the early 1980s. In the course of his long career Haney worked on a vast number of DC titles, but he is perhaps best known for his pivotal role in the creation of Metamorpho, Eclipso and the original Teen Titans, his long runs on BATMAN AND ROBIN, SUICIDE SQUAD, TOMAHAWK and MYSTERY IN SPACE and his prodigious contributions to editor Robert Kanigher's line of war comics. After a brief tenure in the late 1980s scripting episodes of the animated series THUNDERCATS and THE COMIC STRIP for Rankin/Bass, Haney retired from professional writing and settled in the seaside town of San Felipe in Baja, California. He passed away on December 5, 2004.
