    Overall this continues the set up, but we do start to see some of the characters getting together if not in a friendly way. The story continues to hold my attention and I look forward to the next issue. This was a great issue with my only real gripe being Roys continuity. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brittany Anne Nov 19, 2015

    I am excited and eager to see what the upcoming issue is going to be about. Our mystery woman is not so mysterious anymore, but let's see how it all comes together in the end. Dick's detective skills are on point to the storyline and now I'm wondering how it's going to connect to Speedy. You get a series of different stories that either take up a couple of pages or only has one, but I don't feel like the story is rushed and you can tell that the puzzle piece is fitting perfectly to the bigger picture. What are your theories on the upcoming issue? Read Full Review

    I thought Titans Hunt was a good read to me. Although the beginning was slow due to Roy's intro it really picks up after the first few pages. The ending definitely gives you a surprise twist as Grayson already is involved in a fight with Garth, until a new player shows up that changes the dynamic of the fight. The ending alone makes me want to pick up issue 3 when it comes out. This has to be the first issue where I didn't complain about not having the Nightwing uniform"and that's saying something. I actually appreciated him being out of it this issue, and maybe it was due to the introduction of Alfred and the batcave. Abnett in this issue shows us that its not just the costume that makes the hero" good supporting characters do too and it does well in this issue through Alfred. I have to admit that I'm starting to like the espionage role that Dick has taken on"he does it very well. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Loukas Nov 26, 2015

    "Run now," a mysterious voice from the shadows tells Roy Harper, "quick as a flash, step after step." There's a lot to unpack in that sentence, and in this issue. But, unfortunately, if Titans Hunt #2is going quick as a flash, it's Flash, the placid Bassett Hound that persons of a certain age remember from the Dukes of Hazard TV series. Dan Abnett continues his languid, dream-like pace from the first issue, gradually introducing the reader to symbols and hints from the history of the Teen Titans. But for all the pleasure of recognition that brings aforesaid persons of a certain age, one wonders how well it engages readers not already steeped in the lore of the franchise, and how effectively such a pace can sustain a year-long story. Given the situation of these characters in the post-Flashpoint DCU, and the situation of this book in DC's editorial structure, one also wonders where this story is leading both in terms of in-universe continuity and corporate strategy.

    Newsarama - David Pepose Nov 23, 2015

    The Teen Titans are one of DC Comics' crown jewels, and the fact that they haven't had a coherent, let alone bestselling, series in years is a huge missed opportunity. Dan Abnett has had the opportunity to right some grevious wrongs by bringing back the iconic Titans together, but he absolutely needs to pick up the pace if he's going to get the nostalgia crowd. Right now, Stephen Segovia is growing dramatically as an artist, but the rest of his creative team isn't mining the potential of this book nearly enough. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Nov 18, 2015

    I'm pretty sure the fact I haven't previously read Teen Titans is why I'm not super excited about the comic. And I wonder how long time fans might feel differently. That lack of excitement though is getting me to want the story to get going and hopefully give us some excitement, because right now there's just not much making me want to continue reading.

    Titans Hunt doesn't offer a lot in story, but if you like characters doing strange things that they don't understand themselves and saying strange things so we the readers understand that they are indeed strange, then maybe this issue is for you.  For what we've seen so far, it's just really hard to be excited about what's going on because like the characters, I'm not sure myself what that actually is.  Thankfully though, we continue to have strong art in this series and the colors just pop off the page.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Nov 21, 2015

    The story is plodding and going nowhere fast, and the art is pretty crummy on Titans Hunt. Abnett really needs to pick up the pace and lay off the artful prose. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Nov 23, 2015

    Titans Hunt #2 is far too happy with not stepping out to far from where the first issue left off. Even the small character beats are not too different from what we saw before and that is a big problem if we are to believe that this story is worth following for 10 full issues. As of now the only thing that will keep me around for one or two more issues of Titans Hunt is my love for the franchise and these characters. Hopefully that love won't be the only driving force behind buying Titans Hunt and Abnett can get the story moving forward in a positive direction. Read Full Review
