    We The Nerdy - Bryan Huth Jan 13, 2014

    I would have liked to see more perspective from the other Titans, but Im sure their opinions will be expressed and explored in issue #27. Nonetheless, Teen Titans #26 is yet another essential issue in the series. Through a powerful story of survival and revenge, as well as the consistently beautiful artwork of Kirkham and Thibert, this issue finishes the origin of Kid Flash, and establishes by far the darkest origin story out of the whole team. Kid Flashs story is very much a tale of anger and vengeance that ultimately ends with redemption, but leaves the rest of the team questioning just who Bart really is. Read Full Review

    It's been a long time coming but now we know Kid Flash's back-story, with the exception of a few missing pieces. Bart's past is fairly controversial as it's been hinted to be in the past, what I'm interested to find out now is how the rest of the team feels about Bart's past, which it seems will be the focus of the next issue. The team will never see Kid Flash the same away again and I don't think I will either. Read Full Review

    Teen Titans continues to impress. A well-written, well-penciled slice of superhero adventure, mixed with a small dose of science fiction. Excellent work. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jacob Bryant Jan 1, 2014

    Issue #26 offered a good but not great reveal of Kid Flash's past. Although the futuristic themes in the story have been done to death and the explanation of Bart acquiring his powers is a bit weak, it is exciting to have this part of the story revealed and will be interesting to see how the rest of the Titans react to Bart's past.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jan 4, 2014

    After what seemed to be a big build up to the origin of Kid Flash, it just leaves you wanting more.  The team seemed to becoming unified again, with the exception of the psychotic new Superboy, and now it seems all for not, as Kid Flash is the odd man out.  So all in all not the origin I was hoping for, but maybe it's the origin I deserve.  I'm a bit of an asshole.  Go check it out and see what you think, but don't go and do anything stupid like getting your hopes up.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jan 2, 2014

    This is a cobbled together story that's supposed to be the new, defining origin for a very popular character. And it doesn't just undo the first origin, the one that made him popular in the first place; it replaces it with something worse. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Joseph Ulfsrud Jan 3, 2014

    It doesnt get much worse than this. Months of buildup end in a whimper, not a bang. DC should re-evaluate whether or not they want Lobdell to continue establishing bad lore for their intellectual properties. Read Full Review
