    One thing is for certain: with Krul, Benes, Hunter/Sibal/Mayer and crew, I'll be back for the rest of this series and hoping that this team graduates to one of the regular "Titans" titles. Read Full Review

    Longtime Titans fans should really enjoy this one. It's shocking, violent, heartbreaking, and, at times, a lot of fun. It's really all that I expected, but with better art than I had anticipated. In fact, for most of the issue, I was so impressed with Benes's take on Hawk & Dove that I wouldn't have minded seeing him handle the art chores on a miniseries starring the duo. That is, of course, until the end of this issue ripped through any possibility of that. Read Full Review

    As far as event tie-ins go, though, I suppose you can do worse than Blackest Night: Titans #1. The book does add a little to Geoff Johns' main story, and fans of the characters might get a kick out of seeing them react to the resurrection of their dead allies. Still, for this reader, the issue was above all else an example of the current sorry state of this franchise. Read Full Review

    Overall the book is surprise for me considering my history with the Titans. Krul does a good job with the writing but since this is only a first issue it is clear that there is a ways to go before anything truly exciting happens. I think without the nostalgia factor this is nothing more than your standard comic book. Read Full Review
