    I'm a bit worried when ever writers start using the word mature when they desribe their plans for Impulse, as while I realize every character has to grow up, Bart's ability to rush blindly into a situation without giving it much thought has always been one of his more endearing qualities, and I'd hate to see this character aspect lost completely, especially if it's replaced by a serious-minded angst filled rountine that results from his impulsiveness having been the cause for another's suffering. Still this opening issue does have Bart in a rather happy mood, that is somewhat tempered by the moodiness of his teammates. I also have to make mention of this issue's 30 page count, for what I'm guessing if the book's regular price, as it's always nice to get the feeling that you're getting more bang for your buck. The book also does some strong work playing up the idea of why these characters are being brought together to form this new team. Read Full Review

    It's a good start, although I don't know if it'll live to the initial mass hype with such an action-less start. But I am confident that this Titans has more than enough potential to match the original run, especially in the capable hands of Messrs. Johns and McKone. If the next issue adds conflict to the already nice equation, expect a review. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Feb 4, 2007

    Geoff Johns and Tony Daniel begin their final story arc on this title, and it's one that represents the overall tone that's dominated this title from the start: old-fashioned, super-hero fun. The plotting is far from sophisticated. All of the heroes find themselves suddenly confronted by counterparts in Deathstroke's new Titans East, a team of corrupt, embittered bad guys and former heroes. The villains' appearances at just the right places, all over America, and at just the right times, is so coincidental as to be laughable, but the explosive action and dramatic tension in all of the encounters are so well done that one can easily forgive the shortcuts in the writing. To be fair, Johns's script requires the reader to be fairly knowledgeable about continuity, and not just Titans continuity. Recent and not-so recent events in DC history play into the characters' motivations pretty heavily here. As such, this isn't the most accessible of Titans stories, but it will be a satisfying one fo Read Full Review

    His design for the new Titans Tower is fine, though, and while I'm not sure, I think it's in Gateway City, Byrne's West Coast home for Wonder Woman. After all these years, Titans West Coast lives! Read Full Review
