New Teen Titans was an ongoing comic book series which began publication in 1980 and featured the super-hero team the Teen Titans. DC Comics revived the Teen Titans in the pages of DC Comics Presents #26. Joining the team was the former Doom Patrol associate known as Beast Boy (now calling himself Changeling), and three entirely new characters named Raven, Starfire and Cyborg. These new heroes united with Robin, Kid Flash and Wonder Girl to form, the New Teen Titans.

The first volume of the New Teen Titans began publication in November of 1980, with co-creators Marv Wolfman writing and George Pérez providing pencils. The series introduced a variety of new villains, including the popular mercenary known as Deathstroke the Terminator, Trigon, the H.I.V.E. and the Fearsome Five. With issue #41, the title of the series changed to Tales of the Teen Titans. This era of Titans history saw the addition of Jericho to the team's ranks and the evolution of Robin into his current guise as Nightwing.

In 1984, DC began publication of New Teen Titans (Volume 2). This series chronologically took place approximately six months after the concurrently published issue of Tales of the Teen Titans. By issue Tales of the Teen Titans #58, the Tales title had caught up with the events chronicled in New Teen Titans (Volume 2) #1. The remainder of the series ran as reprints of the volume 2 material until its cancellation in 1988 with issue #91.
