    ConclusionAbnett and Booth prove once again that they know how to handle a team book. Titans has been one of the most consistent series of Rebirth so far and this arc looks as though it might be up with “Bldhaven” for me. I will definitely be picking up the rest of the series so long as it keeps up this incredibly story telling. Read Full Review

    Titans remains my favorite monthly title. I'd love to get it every other week, but as long as it retains this quality, I'll reluctantly be satisfied with the once a month great read. Read Full Review

    GWW - Andrew Squires Mar 8, 2017

    Titans #9, like most comic books, doesn't conclude at all, but sets up better storylines and angles for the next issue and subsequent ones after that. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Aron Pohara Mar 9, 2017

    Overall, Titans has been a stellar book even though it did suffer some of the Origin Story problems. Now that that portion of it is taken care of its nice to see the team that a lot of people have grown up with, even though some of the other team members are part of the younger Teen Titans book. What does work is that the characters and relationships between them are well balanced, and everyone serves a purpose in a book. If you were disappointed by Teen Titans of 52 eras, you should be rejoicing as Titans are back! Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Mar 8, 2017

    An interesting element is developed in Titans #9 that makes the villains capable of doing bad things under the visage of corporate protection. Abnett and Booth are doing things that feel fresh on all fronts. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Steven Brown Mar 8, 2017

    I thought the Titans #9 was a good read. You'd definitely have to read the previous issue however if you want any clue on what's going on. Abnett directly drops you in from the previous issue and immediately introduces you into the Fearsome Five. Abnett also addressesRoy's drug addiction as well, which I thought was a great moment for Roy and the team.Although they're heroes it's good to see a humanizing or emotional moment for them and Abnett has this moment with Roy.

    The Batman Universe - Matthew Mahar Mar 10, 2017

    As things continue to heat up for the Titans, Im looking forward to seeing what this book brings. The team has been consistent and given us a book that continually outdoes itself. Im hoping they can keep this pace up and keep the group together for some time to come. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Mar 14, 2017

    Titans continues to be a fun book overall and while I do wish it would tighten up its arcs just a bit more, and give us a bit more downtime with the characters to connect with them, I'm enjoying this new arc as it gets underway. Karen and Mal are characters I'm less familiar with and after a whole lot of Wally time it's good to focus on eithers. Poor Garth is just written as someone who wants to punch things, which is admittedly amusing. I doubt anyone is surprised by the truth behind events here but it's made fun and engaging to read thanks to Booth and Rapmund who continue to turn in some top notch work month after month that's full of energy and excitement.

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Mar 9, 2017

    Abnett and Booth deliver again, and Titans #9 sets itself up for a follow-up issue that should be high-energy and action packed. Some readers might be disappointed with the lack of plot progression in this issue, and if you're not a fan of character interaction, then you might see this chapter as a bit of a let-down. I personally enjoy the dynamic of these characters, and feel as though the peaks and valleys of this book will work much better in a trade format. In the end, Titans is definitely worth your time, so make sure you go pick it up! Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Because Speed Force Mar 8, 2017

    As with all the Rebirth titles, Titans #9 comes with two covers. The regular cover is fine, but it doesn't grab at me like a good cover should. It has Bumblebee front and center with the remainder of the team in the background, and a strangely huge Nightwing. Cover B on the other hand, is a far more interesting cover, with both the Titans and The Fearsome Five represented front and center. Obviously art is subjective, but between the two, Cover B has more going on and presents more characters, giving the issue more of a “big event” feel. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Mar 8, 2017

    The art, by Booth and Rapmund, looks just great. I have enjoyed every issue they have done. And I dont really dislike the story. I imagine that, in a collected edition, it will read perfectly well. Its just not very grabbing as an issue in and of itself. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Mar 8, 2017

    While not a lot goes down in this issue, I still found myself having a decent time with it and that's probably because I love the interactions of our heroes in this series and because the art is always top notch.  So yeah, while not a lot goes down here, it does setup what looks like a hell of a story and a fight going forward.

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Mar 8, 2017

    Ive made no secret of my opinion that Dan Abnett has been the unquestioned MVP of DCs post-Rebirth universe, and I still stand by that claim. However, Im also forced to admit that this latest Titans arc is in severe danger of tarnishing that reputation, and unless we start seeing some of that trademark Abnett creativity and emotion again, these next few issues could end up being something of a train wreck.
