    Marv Wolfman returns with the conclusion of his Convergence tie-in, and in true New Teen Titans style manages to tell an exciting, emotional, and dramatic tale. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Jim Remolde May 21, 2015

    I would have liked to have seen more of an interaction between Dick and Kory but I found the ending of their struggle to be satisfying. I would have liked to have seen more about what Donna felt was so wrong at the end of the issue. Were they really on earth or which earth and I would have liked to have seen a more satisfying ending especially as this is the last issue of this miniseries. Did the Titans return to the pre crisis Earth-1 or will we see them join the other heroes in the Convergence main title fighting Deimos. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Daniel Kalban May 25, 2015

    While it was fun to hang out with the Titans again, this is not their best outing. An incredibly soap opera-ish script and generic plot makes them looked aged, not youthful. The changes in personality (one could argue due to being under a dome for a year) are too drastic and off putting. However, beautiful art helps elevate this issue from being dashed upon the rocks of an uncertain and perhaps less optimistic future than the Titans originally promised. Read Full Review

    Wolfman picks up right where he left off, and Nicola Scott's art is phenomenal. I want Disco Nightwing back! Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Terry Miles, Jr. May 21, 2015

    Honestly, the book is what you expect from a Titans story. The action and emotion is there. The biggest problem for me was the ending of the issue. It led to absolutely nothing. Most of the tie-ins end with a conclusion to the two city skirmishes, and comment on the character of the protagonist(s) involved. This conclusion left me scratching my head and wanting more, but by that point I really didn't even care. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea May 20, 2015

    While I was really looking forward to this second issue, I have to say that nothing really happens here and for all the emotion that is supposed to be going on in this story, every character came off feeling flat, even when they were supposed to be going through a big emotional revelation.  I did love the art and seeing these characters presented this old way was really fun but by the end it just leaves you wanting more.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza May 25, 2015

    The "Convergence" event offers readers and creators the opportunity to revisit beloved properties, characters and teams. Such is definitely the case for "Convergence: New Teen Titans" #2. Wolfman and Scott even check the box by declaring a victor in the battle, though they leave readers hanging as far as paying out the victor's reward. Wolfman fills the issue out with relationship subplots before reaching the conclusion but, along the way, this feels like a classic Wolfman-era tale. It's not going to be as memorable as "The Judas Contract" or the classic New Teen Titans' earlier adventures, but it meets the requirements of the event nicely, giving readers an enjoyable adventure along the way.

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Jun 2, 2015

    Scott's affection for these characters shines through in the line art, just as her disinterest in other elements. Kole and Jericho are rendered in far more sketchy detail than, say, Dick and Kory. The generic quality of the Tangent Universe's Doom Patrol pales in comparison with the color and diversity of design of the Titans. Still, I love the youth, personality and energy Scott manages to instill in this classic incarnation of these characters. Scott's artwork for the regular-edition cover definitely evokes a Perez feel and the sort of images one would find on classic 1980s Titans comics. Read Full Review
