"Can Someone Explain This Ziggy For Me?"

Okay, so maybe I am about to out myself as a complete moron, but I can't for the life of me figure out what's going on in Teen Titans. There is a certain "Emperor's New Clothes" mentality that prevents one from seeking assistance in deciphering a comic book geared toward young readers. But, then, I've never been self-conscious about pointing out my ignorance. Perhaps someone who is wise in the ways of kid-oriented comics can help me figure it out.

1. Why is Raven trying to bring Jericho back to life?

2. Why is Raven trying to bring Jericho back to life without clearing it with Rose first?

3. Why is Bombshell trying to kill Jericho?

4. Why is Bombshell trying to kill Jericho before Jericho is even brought back to life?

5. How did Raven know that Bombshell was a traitor?

6. What, exactly, made Bombshell a traitor? That she was trying to kill Jericho before he came back to life?

7. What was the deal with the missing book?

8. How come Bombshell thought that Jericho's father hired her to kill him, when in reality Jericho's father hired someone else to un-kill him? Seems like an odd sort of mix-up.

And to get it up to 10 Questions, a couple of Imponderables:

9. When a race, such as the "Martians" are all shape-shifters who can change both their form and their color, what sense does it make to divide them into "White Martians" and "Green Martians"? Aren't they all potentially White OR Green?

10. Wasn't one of the points of Infinite Crisis that the doors between life and death were supposed to be shut tighter? That didn't last long.

Because he's an old friend.

They have a base form, though they can change it. The Green Martians look like Gumby unless they change it. The White Martians look like Gumby cross-bred with polar bears and the aliens from Alien.

Very nice blog, by the way.

Thank you, anonymous.

Seems like there out to be some law, though, like you need the next of kin's permission before you bring the dead back to life.

Sort of like the Terry Sciavo law, if you were standing on your head and looking in a mirror.
