CONVERGENCE is over, but the ripples are still being felt, especially by a young precog named Lilith. What are these visions she's having of a Teen Titans team the world never knew? And why does she feel compelled to seek out Dick Grayson, Roy Harper, Donna Troy and an Atlantean named Garth and warn them that something dark and sinister is coming after them? Who are Mal, Gnarrk, Hank Hall and Dawn Granger, and what is their connection to the others-and to the fate of every soul on Earth? This is the Secret History of the TEEN TITANS!

    Word Of The Nerd - Daniel Kalban Oct 23, 2015

    This Titans story is just beginning, and it's a slow burner of an opening. However, it is excellently crafted, and shows a healthy respect for the Titans and their pasts, albeit from another continuity. If Abnett and Co can keep themselves from tripping over the various continuities being folded in, this will be a Titans book that will be a worthy celebration of those groovy crimefighting teenagers from yesteryear.

    Comicosity - Matt Santori-Griffith Oct 21, 2015

    All in all, a strong debut for Titans Hunt #1, with the creative team setting up a mystery that has me intrigued, but also establishing a set of characters I can already feel myself drawn to in ways different from my connections with them in the past. Where this series will lead is still worth questioning, but for now, Im satisfied to enjoy the hunt as it progresses. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Loukas Oct 27, 2015

    Will this series appeal anyone other than fans of the classic Teen Titans? Leaving aside all the literary and strategic questions, that is the great economic challenge facing TITANS HUNT. In a market flooded with strong competition from Marvel and the Independents, it is a major gamble. Then again, if DC is thinking primarily in terms of the long-term development of their fictional universe, they may regard immediate profit as less vital than getting the story into continuity and the trades on the shelf. The first step is taken, now we shall see. Read Full Review

    Good Kind Of Geek - Nikki Yuan Oct 22, 2015

    It's an opportunity for DC to fix the complicated Teen Titans history and maybe a chance to see some classic characters making a return. I highly recommend the series for old school DC fans. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Oct 21, 2015

    TITANS HUNT is a decent book. The first issue sets up the characters and teases the mystery but just doesn't do enough to really grab the reader in. It's confusing and doesn't feel like it has a broad enough appeal for the opening of a mini-series. The art team does a pretty solid job to boot. If you're a Titans fan, this will be right up your alley. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Oct 21, 2015

    Abnett has the difficult task with this series of bringing together a team that, for all intents and purposes, doesn't have a history in this universe. DC appears to have signaled that they are willing to dip back into some of the classic stories a few inches at a time, and Abnett has taken the path of incremental reintegration of those characters. This isn't quite the classic Titans (at least not yet), and these are certainly variations on even the more recent depictions of those same heroes, but it is also something different, which in the case of decades-old icons is something to take notice of.

    Like some many debut issues, this has the dual responsibility of setting the stage while simultaneously making readers want to read the next issue. Titans Hunt #1 succeeds on both levels. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Oct 29, 2015

    Titans Hunt delivers an impressive first issue that fulfills a void that's been missing since the launch of the New 52. This is the team book that will set the bar for the other team books featuring our younger heroes, and, so far, is collection that any comics fan should pick up! Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 22, 2015

    It's not an easily approachable book, but one that teases some big things for the Teen Titans franchise. Regardless of what universe this book might be taking place in, it boasts solid characterization and does play on relationships that have been sorely absent in recent years. Read Full Review

    The comic might excite long time fans, but I'm not quite sure there's enough to entice new readers. And as a new one, I can only review my experience reading the comic. I plan on checking out the second issue, but I'd be cautious checking this out for newbies. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Jesse Peterson Oct 28, 2015

    Overall this is a decent, solid first issue. The characters are how I hopped they are. The mystery really grabs you, but that this issue seems to be missing something. I can't quite put my finger on it, but I will keep reading. Read Full Review

    The Kliq Nation - Timdogg Oct 26, 2015

    I'm intrigued to see if Titans Hunt drastically changes things for the current Teen Titans franchise. Perhaps there is room for another Titans book with the in-their-20's heroes. Fans of the Titans of the past should definitely check this out. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Oct 21, 2015

    Sadly, there isn't much to really grab readers to make sure that they return for more in this book.  While I love the concept of our current timeline heroes having to face a past that never was, there wasn't enough of the "whys and hows" to really give you a clear idea of what exactly is going down in this series and besides for a case of the willies that our heroes felt throughout this issue when confronted with things from an alternate timeline, this was just another day in the life of our heroes.  Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Steven Brown Oct 23, 2015

    Overall this issue was decent, but it doesn't stand out at all. I'm hoping that Abnett uses this issue as a stepping stone to something greater–and more than likely he will. I got to be honest and say as a long time Batman fan I hate seeing Grayson out of the uniform, but hopefully it'll grow on me. I'm guessing that Abnett is using this brief memory loss to bring our Titans back better than ever. And after reading this issue that's all one can hope for. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Oct 24, 2015

    Abnett does a fine job with the writing, but I think he should have bypassed the set-up to get right into the heart of the action. Though personally, I think it's a little silly to try and retcon the original Titans back into existence. Why not just bring them together for the 'first' time on a new adventure? Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Nov 8, 2015

    I'm also curious to see what the end goal of this series proves to be. As I don't see the heroes re-teaming up going forward, I wonder if this will be their only entry (and exit) into the New 52 DCU or whether DC may considering offering us “past” adventures of the group going forward. For fans. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Oct 21, 2015

    Titans Hunt #1 is basically a preview or #0 issue. There's very little going on in it besides characters being introduced and some hint of danger. The writing and artwork are not bad, but there's just not a lot here to get out of the comic, especially for a four dollar price tag. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Oct 21, 2015

    "Titans Hunt" #1 is a complete middle-of-the-road comic, but that's not a good thing. If it was extremely good or extremely bad, it would at least be memorable, but right now it's failing to make an impression, though die-hard "Teen Titans" fans will almost certainly come back for a second issue. Hopefully, things will shift for something a little more exciting next issue; a second issue at this level could scare off even more purchasers, because -- right now --this isn't standing out in a crowded marketplace.

    Comic Spectrum - Shawn Hoklas Oct 24, 2015

    Titans Hunt is a book that left me shaking my head in confusion and frustration. These are not the Titans I wanted to see, and the Titans I did get, like Arsenal, are not the version of the character I wanted to read about. The two art styles throughout this book didn't add up to a more enjoyable whole, and after all is said and done I think this will add another layer of complexity for readers old and new. I will hold out hope that somehow by the end of this series we see a Titans team that's close to the iconic teams of the past, but after reading this first issue, I'm not sure we will.

    All-Comic - Lido Giovacchini Oct 25, 2015

    The lingering issue with Titans Hunt is that it really has no justifiable reason to exist. Even the argument that it exists to reintegrate the Teen Titans into DC Universe canon is a precarious and unsatisfying claim as theres no way reviving the Titans justifies this much circuitous and lackadaisical storytelling. This forgotten hero comeback plot was old when DC was trying it on Triumph in the late 90s and its only gotten staler and more worn through as the years drag on. Even if youre a big Teen Titans fan theres really not much for you here, the personalities of the characters arent the same and most of the core characters like Cyborg, Beast Boy, Raven, and Wally West are conspicuously absent. This isnt the return of the Teen Titans so much as an awkward attempt at covering a pretty embarrassing mistake that never shouldve happened in the first place. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore Oct 22, 2015

    That one piece of dialogue is so perfectly encapsulating of the problems found herein – this is DC answering a question (“What can we do with the classic Teen Titans?”) with the most obtuse answer possible – “We can create a character that somehow has knowledge of their past, filter it through the New 52, remove a character that is continuity-problematic, throw in a bunch of cannon fodder, and make it a year-long story.” The answer should have been simple – tell a good story. But that is certainly not the answer we got. Read Full Review

    Abnett is a master at characterization and story structure, and with Titans Hunt he doesn't disappoint. There's a few easter eggs for those who look for them, with something near and dear to long-time fans being teased pretty heavily. This is the Titans book we should have gotten in 2011. Here's hoping it will lead to a new series and replace the currently running title.

    Too early to know what is going on, solid art and writing. The Jim Lee variant cover is a must own. Will pick up again to see where this is heading.

    There's a setup to an overarching mystery, and this issue takes its time, while dropping hints everywhere. It's a book to follow for the long haul.
