    Word Of The Nerd - Daniel Kalban Apr 24, 2015

    Overall, it is yet another excellent tie-in to the Convergence event, and it's great to see the New Teen Titans back in action. Action, romance, drama, and a cliffhanger that could lead to an interesting conclusion… but for that we must wait until next month.Titans Together! Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Nathan Stout Apr 24, 2015

    Wolfman slides back into writing the Titans as if he never left. The dialogue perfectly reflected the characters that he developed and highlighted the relationships built up within his series. The character dynamics really stick out in this book. The team supported each other, and argued with each other. They questioned the relationships they had built. These team dynamics were a trademark of the old series, and it is nice to see that Wolfman still has a perfect understanding of these characters. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Matt Santori-Griffith Apr 22, 2015

    If it seems like I spent the entire review just talking about the value of character and not about plot, well, I did. Thats the allure of the New Teen Titans. Villains were always secondary to how the team interacted with each other. An entire issue could be about getting fitted for a tuxedo, and it was the best issue you read that month. Wolfman and Scott have resurrected a concept that never gets old: the power of great character. The biggest failing? It all ends next month. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Apr 30, 2015

    Convergence: New Teen Titans is a surprisingly effective attempt to revive an old favorite. Wolfman's clever plotting and Scott's classic artwork help this issue prove one of the most effective Convergence titles so far. The sense of being hurried is still present in Nicola Scott's work but its effects are much less of a problem than usual and Wolfman can't escape the need for exposition the event demands, but, as a story, the issue works. These are the characters that a generation of DC readers know inside and out and Wolfman does an admirable job of bringing that to the event format, introducing the characters naturally while telling the story he was brought on to tell. Overall, this is my favorite "Convergence" tie-in. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Apr 23, 2015

    With over 30 years between Crisis on Infinite Earths and Convergence, I've grown, and reading this issue was a real treat, and actually makes me wish this team would stick around in the New 49. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Terry Miles, Jr. Apr 24, 2015

    I was pulled into the issue rather quickly as the story unfolded. I stated above that theConvergenceaspect of the book seems to occur in the background as the Titans also deal with various conflicts that they're facing. It worked in the books favor so that formula didn't feel stale. This was only the beginning of the story so I'm interested to see how things develop from here. Off to a great start with the old…original, New Titans. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Daniel Gehen Apr 27, 2015

    Convergence: The New Teen Titans is not a perfect book, a given asConvergenceis far from a perfect event. However, is a charming, enjoyable last hurrah for one of the most loved teams in the medium's history. Wolfman's deft handling of the characters, particularly in the closing pages, makes this issue stand tall over a sea of repetitive sludge. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Apr 25, 2015

    Problems with love are abundant during the Teen Titan's time under the dome and even though I found it odd that we were dealing with all that drama during a fight to save the city from destruction, this issue was still really enjoyable and we get our Nicola Scott back in action kicking ass and taking names.............. I mean penciling.  The art was great in this issue and I loved seeing these characters again, even if this era's Donna Troy had a creepy thing for older men.   Read Full Review

    IGN - Tres Dean Apr 23, 2015

    The book isn't perfect; the writing seems slightly out of place in a modern event series and it's a bit exposition heavy. But it's always a pleasure to read Wolfman writing these characters, especially with someone as talented as Nicola Scott drawing them. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Apr 24, 2015

    As a stand-alone story, it's not perfect. Like many "Convergence" titles, the nostalgia and retro appeal will be lost on newer fans and the story feels cramped. However, "Convergence: New Teen Titans" #1 does manage to bring back much of what made the original series so beloved, and Wolfman is able to keep the reader from getting bored with the event. As a trip down memory lane, it's a success. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny Hughes Apr 24, 2015

    Every week I feel a little more disappointed with this “event”. I have a pull list at my local comic book shop, so have been avoiding reviewing the books I have yet to pick up. Of those I have reviewed, the best of the bunch was Batgirl. This book, from the solicits, appeared to be one of the few bright sparks in the whole Convergence series. However, I am left feeling like a clean-up hitter whose home run attempt is caught on the warning track. So much promise, for so little reward. Read Full Review
