He is the ruler of six kingdoms of pain, suffering and agony-but the one world that evades Trigon is Earth. Trigon's influence has been spread across worlds by his sons, but it wasn't until he conceived a daughter of Earthly origin that the monster finally had an heir who could aid his quest. Now, with all the world's heroes missing-is this the final victory of Trigon?

    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain Sep 13, 2013

    To sum up: definitely get this issue, but be warned that, as a friend pointed out to me on Twitter, Trigon has a fascination with Rosemary's Baby and this may not be palatable to everyone. So if you are put off by the some of the satanic aspects of Trigon as a character, this issue might not be for you. Read Full Review

    As mentioned, CAFU's art is typically fantastic. He really nails that slow transition from grand sci-fi spectacle to demonic horror as Trigon makes his transformation. There's a terrific sense of scale to CAFU's panels, and Jason Wright's colors work very well in conjunction with his bold lines and inks. Visually, this has been a great week for DC, and Teen Titans #23.1 stands at the head of the pack. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 11, 2013

    Well that was Trigon's origin.  Huh.  Would of thought a giant space heart would be part of this story?  As weird as it was, it wasn't bad.  Seems like we'll have a big bad for the Teen Titans to go after, you know after all the other big bads in Forever Evil.  So if you're into stories about raping, and spreading your seed across the cosmos then this is for you.  Oh and if you enjoy the Teen Titans as well.  Not the best, but definitely not the worst.  Check it out.

    Unless you are a big Teen Titans fan, have an affinity for demons or just want an arousing read don't bother with this issue. A fun read but other Villains deserve more attention this week. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Jeff Hill Sep 12, 2013

    Probably not worth the extra dollar for the fancy cover, so you can go ahead and save yourself a buck. But definitely a good read. Wolfman successfully wins back fans of the 1980s style he's so famous for writing in as well as fans of the original Raven/Trigon saga. And with the one-shot special format, he also wins over reluctant fans of the more fantasy-inspired elements of the superhero mythos. I'm pretty excited to see how this plays into Forever Evil in the pages of the upcoming Teen Titans crossovers. I'll be picking them up for sure. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Sep 17, 2013

    When it comes down to it, Teen Titans: Trigon is an excellent look at the benefits that modern comics can glean from more traditional storytelling styles and a warning of the dangers of introducing modern sensibilities into classic stories. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Sep 12, 2013

    I didn't know what to expect from Trigon's chapter of Villains Month, but it was definitely not this. Not page after page of horrifying, stomach-churning rape. Just because they're all alien women does not make it OK. There are drawings of impregnated rape victims killing themselves in this comic. This Teen Titans comic Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Sep 12, 2013

    I expected "Teen Titans" #23.1 to be a fun comic, but there is nothing fun about this issue from start to finish. It's not engaging, it's not interesting, and it's more than a little nasty. I don't consider myself a prude or squeamish, but "Teen Titans" #23.1 is not a comic I would recommend to anyone, ever. This is, in the end, truly pointless. Let's just pretend it never happened.
