    The story ends with Damian making a sacrifice that, frankly, seems a bit out of character, considering that he has only been dealing with these teammates for a couple of issues so far. But it does serve as a good tease for the next issue. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Chris Dec 28, 2016

    I can say with absolutely no doubt that this feels more "Titans" than either New-52! volume, and I am enjoying this title more than I have in over a half-decade.  It's not perfect, though what I'd consider flaws are necessary to the story's progression (ie. this is all about Damian).  I am optimistic that this will become a must-read title once this introductory storyline passes.

    Teen Titans #3 is a solid book. It moves the story forward by examining the past. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Dec 28, 2016

    Teen Titans #3 is a mixture of quality very much in line with the earlier installments in this series. Comic relief and gravitas distract from the sometimes questionable character work, while an overall decent outing from new artist Khoi Pham helps start things off with enough pizazz to carry a lot of weight once things slow down later on.

    AiPT! - David Brooke Dec 28, 2016

    This issue isn't terrible, but it doesn't do enough to make it worth your time. It's one of those issues that slowly builds up characters, lacks action, and will certainly pay off later, but could be skipped. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Dec 28, 2016

    Teen Titans needs a real spark at this point. Right now, it's one of the few Rebirth titles that has failed to meet expectations. Hopefully Percy can turn the title around sooner than later. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Konrad Secord-Reitz Dec 28, 2016

    This issue is slow, boring, and awkward to look it. It does change things and add to the history of characters which is great but it is a rough read. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 31, 2016

    Teen Titans feels like a story where Damian is haphazardly lashing out after some kind of fight with his dad, and somehow his tantrum has embroiled a couple other young superheroes who are too dopey to do anything but assume that the Robin would know what he's doing. But none of that feels intentional. The constant rotation of artists also isn't helping. Read Full Review

    TT [ART: 7.5 | STORY: 7.5 | WRITING: 8.8 | TOTAL: 7.9 (~8)] It's a major shame that neither Meyers or Neves could've continued on art. I wasn't a fan of Pham's work this issue. The plot is a bit lacking this issue, but Percy makes it up for it with some really good writing. Each character feels three-dimensional and the cast really helps this book from being mediocre. While this issue is a large step-down from the previous two issues, I have hope that this book can be rebound with the next few issues with a better plot and some better art.

    Damian remains a frustratingly inconsistent character, but I enjoyed the "Breakfast Club" style bonding and character building here. I'm sticking around to see what happens.

    I thought this was pretty good, developed the characters a little more but fairly minimal on plot. The art was mediocre but had an interesting conclusion. On the fence about continuing this.

    Comic Book Reviews (7.5/10) "Good" Teen Titans #3 "Damian Knows Best Part 3" Writer: Benjamin Percy Penciller: Khoi Pham Plot: Damian and the Teen Titans have escaped the Demon's Fist, a force of assassins assembled by Ra's al Ghul and once led by Damian. This issue takes us back to when Damian and his cousin Mara, the current leader of the Demon's Fist, were being trained by the Demon. Can the Teen Titans learn to accept one another and learn to work together? This issue felt like there was a lot of filler including a scene where the Titans were talking over a camp fire and randomly divulging their greatest pains. It felt forced that this group of individuals who never really worked as a team all of a sudden started sharing their greatest pains. Maybe it was because they just went through a near death experience with their fight with the Demon's Fist, but it felt out of place. Still seeing Beast Boy and Kid Flash banter off one another was enjoyable and seeing Damian open up to his new friends was interesting. Pham does a good job in showing us visually the tumultuous relationship and competitive nature between Damian and Mara. He has a darker tone compared to the previous artists, but it seemed to match the story as both the Teen Titans and the Demon's Fist retreated to lick their wounds.

    I can see why people are having problems with the art. It's inconsistent, and characters don't seem to hold the same face from one panel to the next. I do like Pham's layouts, and the shapes of the faces are appealing. The characters were all unique, and didn't fall into May Sue-dom, which isn't easy to do with superheroes. Though, I guess that might be easier in a team book, because the differences and chemistry and heat between characters is key. The poetry reference is great and develops that inner battle of good and evil in Damian, y'know, the thing that makes him one of the best Batman-related characters.
