    I'd rather see these guys have their own monthly book other than having to jump into the Titans to continue reading. Who knows if they'll actually become the Titans, and if they do, they may just be easily replaced months down the road. If you're into the Titans, pick up the book. If you're just into everything Brightest Day has to offer, skip this one. If you like Ray Choi as the Atom, you may want to own this. Read Full Review

    Villains for Hire is not a good book. In many ways it's an awful book. Somehow, though, it's not as awful as you'd expect considering all the ingredients. Maybe that's a good sign for this languishing title. Who knows? At least the series can't get any worse than it already was. Read Full Review

    I read one reviewer online say that this issue made him feel "dirty" and I'm inclined to agree for a lot of reasons.

I can't think of any reason to buy this, even if you are a hardcore Deathstroke fan. In fact, if you are a hardcore Deathstroke fan, you probably need to avoid this issue even more than the casual fans. Needless to say, this has killed all interest that I had in the new direction of the Titans series, even if Ravager shows up (and y'all know I'm a sucker for Read Full Review

    Never mind that Ryan Choi gets killed off for nothing more than shock value. This is a badly written and drawn comic, peroid. I've gone on the record as saying that the Titans books are in desperate need of a revamp, but this was not at all what I had in mind. I can't see sales on "Titans" doing anything but sliding dramatically over the next six months if this is what the series will be like. Read Full Review
