Frustrating series! If Abnett would just cut out the juvenile bickering and stop portraying Roy like an idiot and stop being too cute with humor this would be such a better series!! The potential is right there - case in point; the whole Wally/Superman interaction was fantastic and spot on! So stop trying to be cute Abnett and starti living up to this series potential!

Hmmm.... so this comic happened. I haven''t read a first issue like this in a while. So little is given or explained to the reader that it's hard to even assign a rating. I feel it deserves an 'N/A' for a rating. Very decompressed and if this will be pace of series going forward this may be better as a trade. That being said; last page was pretty cool and I will at least be back for issue 2.

When a tornado levels his home-as well as the surrounding West Texas town-a restored Quinlan rises from the wreckage. The enchanted sword at the eye of the storm gives him more t...

I felt like a ton was explained. Roy and his family came to take care of his dad with Alzheimer's. It's taking a toll on everyone. An odd, fanatical storm came and gave the father a sword which helps him remember. Amazing stuff.

READ RUMBLE - Jan 12, 2017

I get the family dynamic part, but the whole storm and sword thing was kinda random and I know it's a first issue and will be explained, but to me it was tough judging this comic with some random storn showing up and giving the dad a sword. I just didn't know what to make of it. It will obviously be explained in later issues and then I'll be able to judge this better. Arr was great and last page was cool, so I'll get issue 2 for sure.

This book gets so much hate from critics and fans alike. It's been called a cash grab and it has been criticized for its delays. I don't care. I like this book. I like the Dark Knight world; I like the art; I like the mini comics and, dare I say, it's one of the few books that, in my opinion, is worth the price tag. I cannot wait until next issue when the Amazons get involved!

I thought this was an exciting, fast paced issue with a great reveal of who the archer is that is framing Ollie. The dialogue with the police chief was a little over the top, but I can see how that factored into making what Ollie did at end more meaningful as now maybe police will lay off Ollie going forward. All in all I really am enjoying this series!

So Barry rebuilds a bridge?? Last I checked Barry wasn't an engineer and does he now have Superman level srength in order to lift the steel to build the bridge?

One of the biggest disappointments of the DC Rebirth. Wally's portrayal in the DC Rebirth one shot indicates he is a major character in the Rebirth story line and I was really excited to follow his story into Titans, but the difference in tone and the way Dan Abnett is writing Titans just doesn't seem to match with the initial feeling I got when reading Rebirth.
