    The shockandawe of characters returning from the dead in Blackest Night is starting to get a bit tired, but JT Krul and Ed Benes put some fun spins on it in this issue. It's nothing too far off from what the other creators have done, but Krul and Benes really sell it, especially for longtime Titans fans. Plus, you may not find any comics outside of this series where the female Hawk and Dove actually catch on (even if Hawk is deadish). Read Full Review

    If you're following Blackest Night, even if you're not a huge Titans fan, I recommend picking up this book (the first issue is probably still on some stands too). It's a great story of fear and the undead hitting the DC universe, with fantastic art and an overwhelming menace. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Oct 5, 2009

    Blackest Night Titans #2 was a good read. If you are reading Blackest Night this mini-series isn't very crucial to the main series. This mini-series is much more for fans of the Titans franchise. So if you have no interest in the Titans I would not recommend getting this mini-series. Still, if you are a fan of these characters I recommend getting this fun mini-series to get some of that old Titans nostalgia. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Aziz Bawany Oct 1, 2009

    I can’t say much else about Blackest Night: Titans #3. If you’re picking up this book then you’re obviously a Titans fan. If you’re new to the group it’s a good way to catch up on some of the important deaths that have transpired over the course of thirty to forty years. However, if you’re not interested in the Titans then this doesn’t provide much else than that small hint at what is on the horizon I mentioned earlier. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Oct 4, 2009

    All in all, though, this comic is cringe-inducing levels of bad. Characters in comics are often walking exposition factories, but J.T. Krul's script goes even further here. I can't imagine someone, upon being in a tower that's shaking apart, to stop and calmly say, "The last thing we needed was an earthquake right now." (Of course, when you consider that they also were just fighting Terra, it's also a slightly nave comment.) It's sad, because I'm enjoying "Blackest Night," as well as the tie-in issues in "Green Lantern" and "Green Lantern Corps." This comic, though, is tarnishing the crossover by association. Hopefully no one will assume the main story is this bad. Read Full Review
