    Teen Titans #4 is a strong ending to the first story-arc. Red Robin is back in full force, and we are provided with some insight into the future of the book. The writing and art are on point, and things look pretty promising for next issue, when a new member joins the team. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Nov 20, 2014

    Teen Titans' first arc reaches its early conclusion, writer Will Pfiefer using the events of issue #4 as a stepping stone for bigger and better things. While that in itself isn't a bad plan, it does leave the past issues feeling a bit like an extended zero issue, as if certain pieces had to be placed before the series could really get going.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Nov 20, 2014

    Kenneth Rocafort continues on art this month and if you are a fan of his style, then there's nothing to complain about because it screams Rocafort.  I'm kind of weird when it comes to his art though because something I really dig it and other times I don't.  That's right I'm an asshole, but for long time lovers of the style, you'll get everything you want right here.  Pfeifer on the other hand concludes this story in a strange way.  Yeah it opens up doors for future Titans stories, but to get there he left a trail of confusion in his wake and making one of my favorite characters look like a knucklehead.  So this series continues to give me ups and downs to the point where I'm still not convinced if I like it or dislike it.

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Nov 20, 2014

    This has been the most exciting version of the Teen Titans in quite a while and all praise should go to the writer and artist. Pfeifer and Rocafort really are turning in excellent work in this series and its only four issues in (five if you count the Futures End issue). If youre looking to read a good teen book, Teen Titans is worth a try. Read Full Review

    Population Go - Chris Lemmerman Nov 30, 2014

    The first arc of Teen Titans comes to a surprising end in this issue, and whilst the title still has a few teething problems to work out, such as the balance between the team's characters, it is a marked improvement on everything that went before, and seems to be learning from the few mistakes it has made in the previous three issues. The artwork is of course excellent thanks to Kenneth Rocafort, and the story and dialogue are coming along nicely under Will Pfiefer. Teen Titans is fast becoming a book that should be on everyone's pull list, but it isn't quite there yet. Read Full Review

    Mostly I'm just disappointed with this issue of Teen Titans. Pfeifer is headed in some weird directions. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jesse Kennedy Nov 22, 2014

    Here's an opportunity for Teen Titans to turn itself around. As much as I'm not a big fan of this individual issue, it does set the seriesup for some interesting and slightly complex dynamics in the future. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - TBU Contributor Nov 21, 2014

    Teen Titans has gotten off to a rocky start. However, providing depth to the storytelling and improving the art direction could make this a series that all DC fans wouldnt dream of missing. For now we will wait to see if Pfeifer is able to take this series in a direction that warrants our attention. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Matt Little Nov 20, 2014

    Much like the story, it's confusing as to why these characters are even together, other than the fact that DC wants to make a book with the title "Teen Titans." Four issues in and there doesn't seem to be a mission statement behind the book. There wasn't really any direction here, so it wouldn't have been a big deal to just start the book with the gang working for S.T.A.R. and flash backwards from there. The last volume of the book ran in circles for a while and this new volume feels like more of the same. The relaunch just seems arbitrary. I hope that the result of this story moves the book in a more focused direction, but right now the future looks bleak. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 24, 2014

    In order to make sure I wasn't lost, I picked up all four issues of this series in order to make sure I'm on the same page as the creative team, and what I've found is a series that, like this issue, is a bit muddled. Teen Titans #4 isn't quite successful in its story elements, but follows the running tradition of the kids having a villain/benefactor and looks a little too chaotic and unfinished for my tastes.

    There's a problem with this issue of Teen Titans: it all feels too convenient. The conclusion is really rushed, and sets up the obvious villain for the next arc. There's no attempt at subtlety, or trying to hide that the person who's behind Algorithm is going to try to hurt the Titans in the future. Speaking of the Titans, they're barely in this book, at least as a whole. They spend a total of five or so pages together, with most of the issue focusing on the main battle. There's a nice little tease of future sub-plots with Wonder Girl, but it's just a tease, so there's not much more there. Artwise, Kenneth Rocafort does a really good job. I actually really like his pencil work, and the clutter on the pages between panels doesn't distract me from the story. He's also gotten better at not sexualizing characters, although there's still room for more progress to be made. But really, the problem with this book is that it's not a satisfying conclusion to the story of Algorithm, who by the end feels like a means to an end, and not an actual threat to the team. I still recommend the book, but understand that it might feel a bit disappointing.
