    For those not familiar with the characters in the Teen Titans past or present, it doesnt matter. For an ongoing title I have found Teen Titans quite accessible and engaging under Johns keyboard and would recommend jumping in anytime. Read Full Review

    On one hand it great to see Geoff John is taking such pains to draw upon elements from the Wolfman/Prez era, and I can hardly blame him for doing so as there's some great material in those pages that has been languishing in comic limbo for the better part of the past decade. I also have to say that if one has read those issues, and I strongly urge you to do so if you haven't, than you should be having a grand old time with this book, as there's a wealth of surprise twists, and developments that act to remind one how good those old issues truly were. On the other hand, there's also a sense that Geoff Johns is simply walking in the footsteps of those classic issues, and that he's simply following a plot by numbers formula that was a proven success in the past. One also has to feel a bit sorry for the newer fans who are expected to swim in the deep end of Titans continuity, with only quick little toss away bits of exposition to keep them afloat. Still, the book is full of exciting moment Read Full Review

    On the art front, McKone is great on everyone save Wonder Woman, who looks a bit goofy on the final page. His sometime cartoonish proportions work better on kids than adults. Read Full Review
