Earth Is Set to Become “Beast World” In the Upcoming DC Titans Event This Fall

The Comic Source


Announced at the Jim Lee and Friends Panel on Friday evening at San Diego Comic Con 2023, a new Titans even is coming this fall from writer Tom Taylor and artist Ivan Reis. The Titans have been playing a major role in the DC Universe as of late due to the events of Dark Crisis and the absences of the Justice League. Their current series is written by Taylor with art by fellow Australian Nicola Scott. The two have collaborated before to critical acclaim on Earth 2, among other series at DC. Additionally, Mark Waid is penning an updated early days of the Titans series, with art from Emanuela Lupacchino and there is a Tales of the Teen Titans 4 issue mini-series. Each issue of the mini features a different creative team and the final installment, written by Andrew Constant with art from Ro & Stein, will focus on Garfield Logan and serve as a bit of a prologue to the Beast World event. The event itself will feature a new world-ending threat known as the Necrostar. Starfire discovers that the threat was defeated by the Tamaraneans previously through the power of Starro. Faced with little choice Beast Boy becomes a Starro himself, but can his fellow heroes bring him back from the brink? Plus how will Amanda Waller react to this new superhero event, will Lex Luthor look to take advantage and is the newly teased Dr Hate character a hero or villain?

Beast Boy and the team come to the rescue in new comic book series Titans: Beast World by superstar scribe Tom Taylor and legendary artist Ivan Reis, starting November 2023

Clawing its way out of the pages of Tom Taylor and Nicola Scott’s Titans “Dawn of DC” comic book series comes an unprecedented threat to the DC Universe, an intergalactic Sea Star—a conqueror like Starro, but one that is far more frightening. Superman, Wonder Woman, Starfire—all are powerless to stop The Necrostar from ending all life on Earth. And the only Super Hero who can save the world is…Beast Boy?!

With Nightwing, Raven, Cyborg and the Titans beside him, can Garfield Logan rise to battle an ancient evil? Or is he doomed to become the greatest threat to the DC Universe? What will Amanda Waller do to take advantage of the situation as millions of people are changed into rampaging creatures? And can humanity survive all-powerful Super Heroes and Super-Villains transformed into ferocious beasts?

DC proudly presents the first Titans comic book crossover event, “Beast World,” featuring the brand-new series, Titans: Beast World, brought to you by the all-star creative team of writer Tom Taylor and artist Ivan Reis. This epic event, which continues into January 2024, sets the stage for what’s to come for the DC Universe! Part of the “Dawn of DC” storytelling initiative, “Beast World” will also connect into Tom Taylor’s ongoing series Titans and Nightwing.


“I’m beyond excited to bring this DC crossover event to life starting in November with our new Titans: Beast World series, featuring art by the incomparable Ivan Reis. ‘Beast World’ will also thread the needle between the current series that I’m writing about the Titans,” said writer Tom Taylor. “Friends will fall. Super Heroes will rise. And nothing will ever be the same again. Earth is about to become…Beast World.”

“Beast World” will kick off with October’s Tales of the Titans #4 (on sale 10/24/23), written by Andrew Constant with art by Brandt & Stein, featuring everyone’s favorite shapeshifter, Beast Boy, as he deals with his own crisis.

Beast Boy barely survived the events of Dark Crisis, suffering a brutal attack from Deathstroke and losing an eye in the process. With his confidence weakened, he’s been unable to hold the shape of the large and mighty animals that define him as a Super Hero. But when a scientist with nothing to lose needs Beast Boy’s powers for terrifying ends, Gar will have to face what truly makes him special…and save his own life in the process!

As the Titans rally together in the pages of Titans: Beast World to prepare to fight the intergalactic beast, The Necrostar, Starfire discovers how it was first defeated by the Tamaraneans of the past: it was beaten by Starro. Luckily, the Titans have a warrior that can take the shape and match the powers of a world-conqueror like Starro—Beast Boy!

So Starro Beast Boy becomes a world conqueror, and DC’s Titans lose their shape-changing teammate in the process. Titans: Beast World will tell his story—and the story of the Titans fighting to bring him back from the abyss—beginning in November 2023.


And what does all of this have to do with Amanda Waller? The threat Beast Boy poses will further Amanda Waller’s crusade against metahumans and her anti-alien alliance…by any means necessary. As Waller looks for ways to take Starro Beast Boy down, she will form a cautious understanding with none other than Lex Luthor—as an expert in dealing with alien threats.
