    While this series had some strange shakeups in the past months, it seems this book wont be doing anymore of the crossover stupidity. Hopefully, DC keeps the book by itself for the foreseeable future. Read Full Review

    The mystery surrounding Wonder Girl's past continues to deepen. We will find out more but will have to wait until after next month's zero issue. With Cassie's struggle over her armor, we get to see Red Robin and Superboy work together to try to help her. This gives a stronger sense to the fact that they are part of a team, even if we haven't seen a full blown acceptance by some of the members about the team. We get to see a new character that will clearly pose a huge threat for the team in the future. This may not be the Teen Titans we had before the New 52 but seeing them work together is making the team more appealing. It was just unfortunate that we had a shortened main story with a back up that continued the story from last week's DC UNIVERSE PRESENTS. At least we know everyone will be talking about this series after the zero issue. Read Full Review

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Aug 23, 2012

    I spent a lot of time on this post, mostly because I feel that in the past, I may have lambasted Scott Lobdell without anything to back it up. Sure, I explained my general misgivings with his style, but I really wanted to find examples, evidence to my claims that the man just keeps tripping over one of the easiest character archetypes in the literary world: the awkward teenager. So while I'm admittedly impressed with this arc's mythological aspects, the Teen Titans themselves are still about as interesting as a plank of wood. Read Full Review

    The character growth of the past few issues of Teen Titans is stopped. We're back to the mindless, 'x-treme' superhero action. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Aug 22, 2012

    This issue is not Brett Booth's best. It has some slick double page spreads and a few nice moments, but the action is seriously muddled. The characters fly across the page constantly and it never looks very good. The intense fight between Wonder Girl, Superboy, and Red Robin is anything but. It's awkward. Really, the only good thing in this book is the coloring work by Andrew Dalhouse. He brings a sense light and energy that this comic does not deserve. Don't spend your money on Teen Titans.Spend it on something more worth while, like paying somebody to punch you in the face. Read Full Review
