    Weird Science - Eric Shea Oct 16, 2014

    Hey my constant pessimism has finally been lifted and I miraculously really enjoyed the Teen Titans!  Yay!  I know I might be a bit late to the trolley here, but for some reason everything seemed to work better for me here than it did in any of the previous issues of this incarnation of the Teen Titans.  Pfeifer's story seemed to jive better, Rocafort's art seemed cooler than it has been and the colors by Dan Brown just popped and made this entire book something special.  I'm really on the creative team's dicks here, but I'm happy as hell to be enjoying the Teen Titans again and I'm stroke the hell out of them if they continue to wow me the way this issue did here.  Go check it out.

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Oct 17, 2014

    Because of how great these moments are, it's almost a disappointment when the team comes together to battle the main threat. The spectacle is cool, despite it not quite packing the same punch as sequences in other team books, but it's not where this book excels. That isn't to say that these scenes aren't good, they just aren't quite as dynamic as other parts of the books are.Visually,the scene where the Titans take down their foe is the most impressive part of the book. Kenneth Rocafort's art is stunning throughout, but he's in his element with action sequences, which come alive and pop off the page. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Oct 17, 2014

    This book definitely feels contemporary. And despite that I liked it. It echoed things of Titans past while being completely different- and that was not what I was expecting. Its easy enough to jump in. Theres enough allusion to whats already transpired that the reader doesnt feel lost. As one of the few re-launches of original New 52 titles, this book is on the right track. Its worth your time to give it a chance. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Michael Bowie Oct 17, 2014

    There is a lot of interest for me going on in this series. What Will Pfeifer is doing with Bunker and the Wonder Girl gang in particular has me very intrigued. And Im loving seeing Raven (and Bunker) getting more time in the spotlight. She has always been my favorite Titan since seeing the 2003 TV series (which was my first real exposure to the group). The one weak point for me with the book right now are the villains. Im just not finding a lot of appeal in Manchester Black and Algorithm , given time though, perhaps that will change.

    This relaunched series had its problems starting out, but as the new creative team settle in the book is showing steady improvement. Like the revamped Batgirl, this book is helping to cast the New 52 is a more fun and carefree light. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Oct 16, 2014

    I'm not a fan of renumbering a book for the sake of renumbering it, but after the crash and burn of the last series, it's nice to see that "Teen Titans" is getting a proper second chance. "Teen Titans" #3 continues a strong run from Pfeifer and Rocafort, and hopefully the duo will be sticking around for a while. It's a pleasure to have this book genuinely fun once more.

    Infinite Comix - Z Nov 21, 2014

    Teen Titans #3 is another solid entry in this new series. Pfeifer writes a likeable team, and Rocafort and Brown are an amazing combination on art duties. The storyline may be treading water, but it will no doubt be interesting to see where Pfeifer, Rocafort, and Brown take this book in the future. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Oct 19, 2014

    Teen Titans has absolutely picked up some steam since coming back onto the scene. Helped out by a well written first arc that is more realistic and some wonderful pencils by Kenneth Rocafort. This may not be a huge book, but its definitely a fun one. Read Full Review

    Population Go - Chris Lemmerman Nov 2, 2014

    Teen Titans isn't the best book on the stands. At least, it's not yet. But what it is, is on the road to recovery after being dragged through the mud. It's now good comics, superhero fun that you can read with a smile on your face, and it makes me happy to look forward to reviewing it now instead of dreading it. With all the groundwork laid for a series that should do well, here's hoping it gets the chance to, and hasn't had its entire readership scared away. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Oct 16, 2014

    This issue of Teen Titans had so much going for it, but I'll be damned if I cared one little bit. I still think I want this book to be good. I think I want it to be filled with fun, enjoyable characters who go on worthwhile adventures. But there's still such a bad taste in my mouth from the previous volume, and there are still so many hang-ups with this new volume, that Teen Titans is just not gelling. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jesse Kennedy Oct 17, 2014

    There is little development in the characters. Most of this issue feels like a set-up for the story to come rather than an enjoying read for right now. To continue the series you will want topick it up, but it is not 100% necessary. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Michael Mocico Oct 16, 2014

    The most frustrating thing about Teen Titans is that it feels like an older family member that's desperately trying to be hip and cool to fit in with the times. The effort is there, but the execution just falls short. Read Full Review

    After a disappointing "Future's End" tie in that abandoned the team for a new ground, it's nice to see Will Pfeifer and Kenneth Rocafort reunited on Teen Titans. Issue 3 delivers on all fronts, with great character moments, great action, and great artwork. The opening with Raven is fun, and gives her an identity that she's been lacking recently. Beast Boy and Bunker are quickly becoming the best of friends, much like he and Cyborg were in "The New Teen Titans". Everything about this book is fun, with great action. I don't know where they're going with this robot terrorist from Star Labs, but I'm interested. Rocafort's art is fantastic, and I think he's getting better at not objectifying the women in the book. There are still some questionable shots, but there's improvement there. Also, something that needs to be praised is the coloring by Dan Brown. His color work makes everything pop, and gives the book a bright look that's a welcome break from the darker stuff we usually get at DC, and what we got in the last volume of this series. Just all around well done. Highly recommended.
