    Comics: The Gathering - Batmanaruto Nov 23, 2016

    In summary Teen Titans #2 is another solid issue, to this already great run, which is really bringing the Teen Titans back to their fun roots. The banter between the team does help, and the importance at the end of being together, shows that this team could grow to be a famous teen titans team. I’m really enjoying the book so far and looking forward to how it continues. Read Full Review

    Teen Titans is a perfect example of what the Rebirth event has been all about " returning to the core of what made this book so popular while also updating some necessary items. Read Full Review

    Percy does a great job with the dialogue for the characters. Damian inspires a lot more mockery than respect from his teammates, and that pushes the boy to even more outrageous actions. While the issue is, to a degree, formulaic, the writing keeps it fresh, and the art is entertaining and dynamic. Read Full Review

    What a great issue! I'm REALLY liking this series created by Benjamin Percy and I think that he definitely has a lot of these characters voices down pat. True to point, Damian is indeed the little sh*t that we all know and love and is caught (already) keeping secrets from his new team"seems very reminiscent of a familiar dark and broody crimefighter we all know and love.

    As far as second issues go, Teen Titans is doing well. The story moves at a good pace, a threat is properly introduced, and the artwork goes a long way for the action, emotion, and characters. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Nov 23, 2016

    Teen Titans is fun with a unique take on building a superhero team. Damian and his dynamic with the rest of the team feels fresh and is well worth a look, especially if you like action. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Nov 23, 2016

    The action played out like a throwback to the Perez/Wolfman era where the Titans find themselves overmatched by a formidable new foe. Even with the artist switch ups, as long as Percy remains Teen Titans will be in good hands. Read Full Review

    Through compelling stories and artistic style, Teen Titansis setting the stageto reclaim the itsimportant position in the DCU.The inclusion of major villains like Ra's and Talia lend credibility to this title and to the position of this team within the larger continuity. The result is agood mix of youthful characters andcoming-of-age tales, which can give Teen Titansjust the boost it needs. Read Full Review

    The growth from the Rebirth launch issue to now is exemplary, and if it keeps improving at this rate it could be a must add to your pull list. More team development is needed, especially involving characters like Wally West, but in just a few short issues the book has made some excellent strides, and issue #2 provides an immense amount of potential for the future of Teen Titans. You can view a preview of the issue in the gallery. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Nov 23, 2016

    Kind of a quick read that isn't short on the particulars of the situation. There's some great action and some really good team moments that are a pleasure to read. Still, having waited a month for this issue, I was hoping for a little more. On the art side of things, there are no real complaints, but it lacks the visual identity of the first issues. All that being said, if the characterizations continue to be amenable, then I'll be glad to keep on peepin' on. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Nov 29, 2016

    Teen Titans #2 is another strong entry in the opening arc of Benjamin Percy's plans for the next generation of DC Universe heroes. Percy did a great job establishing The Demon's Fist as a credible threat for the Teen Titans to face. This issue also furthers the character arcs for each member of this new team. Add in the strong artwork from Diogenes Neves and you have all the you need for an enjoyable reading experience. Read Full Review

    The series not only feels like a return to a more classic (and frankly better) Teen Titans era, it's also a logical next step in the saga of Damian Wayne. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Nov 23, 2016

    Another good-but-not-great installment, Teen Titans #2 is a nice chunk of fun that benefits greatly from front-loading its problems. The last three quarters of the book make it easy to ignore the troublesome flashback at the start, and the complexity of the lead villain creates a much more interesting conflict. Hopefully, Percy can continue iterating and fix the trouble spots, but in the meantime, this is still a decent read. Read Full Review

    The new Teen Titans series shines in art and character development, and the plot could be interesting, but it's in the execution where everything feels utterly generic. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Review (8.5/10) "Great," Teen Titans #2 "Damian Knows Best Part 2," Writer: Benjamin Percy, Penciller: Diogenes Neves, Plot: Damian has revealed to the Teen Titans that the Demon's Fist, a special team of assassins that Ra's Al Ghul trained himself, is after the Teen Titans. Blank, Stone, Plague, Nightstorm, and Mara are hunting the Titans. Can the Titans protect each other and can they learn to trust Damian despite his connection to the League of Assassins? Thankfully, as a team full of teenagers this book evokes fun rather than angst and narcissism - well, some narcissism on the part of Damian. Enter the Demon's Fist, a group of highly trained assassins sent by the Demon to kill the Teen Titans. Why does the demon want these five individuals dead? I liked the reveal that Damian was originally planned to lead the Demon's Fist before he left the League of Assassins, which adds another dynamic to the mix. This makes it no longer a simple group of super heroes versus a a group of super villains showdown anymore, but about two groups that need to prove something now. The Demon's Fist needs to prove that they can be a team without Damian, and the Teen Titans need to prove that they can be a team. I was worried when I found out that Jonboy Meyers was leaving this book, but I am also glad that they were able to get Neves for this book because his art is also cartoony, but more serious than Meyers' art. Think Meyers' art, but with more of an edge, and you get Neves' art. I enjoyed the art so much and if Neves can keep this level of art moving forward I am all in this new artist!

    Fun, exciting issue, with strong art by Neves. I prefer his work to Jonboy Meyers'....I picked this series up to give it a try, and after 2 strong issues I am in for the long haul.
