Jamal Igle Talks Teen Titans
No stranger to drawing the up-and-coming among DC’s superheroes, Jamal Igle takes a turn on the publisher’s premiere teen team with Teen Titans #55.
In this interview with The Pulse, Igle discusses how to avoid playing favorites when you’re working on an ensemble book, but still names the characters he looks forward to drawing and the characters he’s, well… "still getting a handle on."
He also provides some insight about the ways in which the characters resemble ladies he once dated.
I have to admit out of the current roster my two favorite characters to draw are Ravager and Kid Devil. KD has a great visual look but as far as character traits, Rose Wilson is such a wild card type character. She reminds me of girls I dated in the past, someone who is searching for her place in the world. She was raised in a brothel until Slade Wilson found her, and then he used her and abandoned her. So she tries to hard to be difficult and provocative. I’ve seen it so many times.
Seriously, though… Who hasn’t dated a girl or two who grew up in a brothel, was rescued by a deadly mercenary, trained to become his heir, gouged out her own eye as a form of tribute and eventually decided to reform and become one of the good (albeit somewhat psychopathic) guys?
