Good News on Raven Mini

Thanks to my good friend DeTroyes for giving me the following link. It's an interview with Marv Wolfman about the Raven mini-series that he is writing:

Wolfman Interview

This makes me happy. I think this mini-series is a good way to "bridge the gap" between Marv's original vision of Raven and Geoff John's vision of the character. I think it will give us a lot of that off-panel "slice of life" that we die-hard Raven fans have been chomping at the bit for. I am really looking forward to this mini-series.

I'm also making additions to my "Beast Boy" playlist on my MP3 player. These are songs that have either some kind of animal theme OR remind me of Beast Boy's personality. Here are the songs that I have so far:

"Animal" by Def Leppard

"A Little Less Conversation" by Elvis

"Beast of Burden" by The Rolling Stones

"Hungry Like the Wolf" by Duran Duran

"Stayin' Alive" by the Bee Gees ( I can just imagine Gar strutting down the street to this)

"Generic Blues" by Weird Al (He has to have a Weird Al song. )

I'm looking for other songs. Any suggestions?

Thanks for the suggestions, kid leo. It is good to hear from you again. I haven't heard the Savage Garden song, but I'll go look for it. I love the REM song -- I think it came out when I was in college. It's a happy song.

I'm so happy about it! I've been wanting to get into the TT comics but have no idea where to start since I'll be coming in, in the middle of the story.

Savage Garden - Animal Song is a great song! I love that. Sadly I can't really suggest another one for you right now.

Hi aithnea,

If you think of one later, just let me know! :) I'd suggest starting at #34, which is when the One Year Later stories begin. I hear that it's a good point to hop in. That issue might still be available in some stores. #35 is already out, and #36 comes out tomorrow. If you do happen to pick up the series and have questions, just let me know.

Everybody needs a Weird Al song.
I love Shiny Happy People, and Little Less Conversation.

Animal Instinct - Cranberries
Become - Goo Goo Dolls (okay, so I see this as more of a Gar/Raven song, so sue me)
I'm Too Sexy - Right Said Fred
The Saga Begins - Weird Al (Gar is such a Star Wars geek)
Human Nature - Michael Jackson

Probably a dozen more, but I can't think of any right now. 80's stuff. Gar just screams 80's child to me...You want Raven songs? I can think of a lot of Raven songs...mostly Flyleaf...

The more I hear about the Raven mini, the more excited I am about it. (We can only hope Gar plays a prominent role in it, as it is, supposedly, set mostly during that one-year gap...heehee)But seriously, Marv Wolfman hasn't even said much about the actual story, yet what he has said sounds so good! I can't wait.

Two more for now, before I forget:

Laughing - Goo Goo Dolls
Never Gonna Say I'm Sorry - Ace of Base

I just wonder when the Raven mini will be scheduled for release...

Thanks for all the song suggestions. I'm going to have to keep a running list and add them to my MP3 player's BB list.

A Raven list would be great, too!
