    This issue was alright, nothing over the top fantastic. I'm just tired that all Solstice has to do, is be Kid Flash's girlfriend. Now we have to new members of the team, so she'll have even less to do. Super Boy hasn't done much in awhile, and Wonder Girl with the exception of taking charge while Red Robin was kidnapped by the Joker, hasn't had much to do since her origin story around issue #11. We're just having a lot of characters that are being under utilized. Now I don't know what I would do with that many characters and make them all interesting, but luckily that's not my job. I've liked almost everything that Scotty Lobdell has done with this series, hopefully he can bring back the freshness and keep people reading. Read Full Review

    Teen Titans #22 doesn't successfully live up to the promise of previous issues, and unfortunately leaves Trigon an unthreatening and uninteresting nemesis for the team. Walking away from this issue, it feels like the Titans haven't changed a bit from this encounter. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jul 29, 2013

    Ever since "The Culling" storyline it's felt like "Teen Titans" has been grasping for a direction, even as it avoids the most obvious and perhaps easy one. The problem is, in trying to make "Teen Titans" different it feels like Lobdell's thrown out what can make a team work. Namely, having it feel like an actual team of interesting characters. With at least one origin on the horizon, hopefully this is about to change. But all in all, this is a comic that needs to pull itself together quickly, before too much damage is done. Something needs to be done before readers give up. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Joseph Ulfsrud Jul 26, 2013

    The art is wonderful and the humor brings laughs, but at the end of the day, this comic isn't worth the $2.99 price point. Trigons sudden departure is insulting to readers, and the rest of the comic has been done before. Heres hoping that the next arc might bring some fresh new story ideas and characterization.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jul 25, 2013

    This comic has gone off the rails, and I fear that there is no repairing the damage. How could the series recover from this? Someone would have to just wipe this team clean and start fresh. There is still potential to this series, I think. These characters, at their most basic, could still be used for something good. But Lobdell is not the man to do it. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Jul 30, 2013

    Teen Titans #22 is a deeply disappointing issue that squanders most of the buildup that Lobdell has spent so long giving us. The art is attractive and the layouts dynamic, but overall the book is only decent visually and writing like this demands better than decent. It's a shame that it's come to this, but this issue is not only weak on its own but undermines the best elements of the title's last six months and that's just unacceptable for a once proud franchise like the Titans.
