    Weekly Comic Book Review - DS Arsenault Oct 28, 2009

    Krul and Benes delivered a very fine conclusion to this miniseries. Gar and Donna went through some heart-rending experiences that will change them as people. If you are fans of those characters, then this miniseries matters to you. And if you are not, you will be by the end of this book. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Oct 29, 2009

    Krul has been the best thing to hit the Titans franchise in a long, long time, maybe since the franchise had new life imbued in it via Cartoon Network. He "gets" the characters, especially in the situations "Blackest Night" drops on them. Donna Troy reacts as a warrior would, but manages to maintain the emotions that made her a fan favorite character for decades. Unfortunately, Krul only has so many pages to work with and isn't able to devote pages to every character, but he does make a valiant attempt to let each character shine, adhering to advice Len Wein once gave about writing team books. DC would do themselves a great favor if they made Krul an offer and gave him a chance to write a regular Titans title. It'd be enough for me to check it out. Of course, if it featured some of these characters and/or art by Benes, then it'd be a lock. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Koppy McFad Nov 3, 2009

    The art is a little too posed, considering the emotional turmoil that the characters are going through. Even the scene of Donna Troy confronting her zombie offspring seems stiff. The (non-zombie) women look really hot though. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Oct 29, 2009

    Given the strength of this miniseries first two issues, this one is a bit of a letdown. The art isnt nearly as strong and the treatment of Terra is simply ridiculous and unnecessary. There is a lot to like, but for every step forward the issue takes, there is something bad going on to bring it back a step. If you arent following this title, you may want to check this one out anyway simply because of the revelation regarding Doves powers and how it affects the Black Lanterns. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Oct 29, 2009

    That being said, Kruls plot intrigues me in that it touches upon ideas and elements that we havent seen in any of the Geoff Johns-penned Blackest Night comics. Donna Troys infection is something we havent seen outside this limited series, and Doves unique nature in the face of the Black Lantern onslaught is interesting as well. My hope is that Krul didnt overstep with this script and that well see Johns follow up on these notions in the main event series. Read Full Review
