    Scott Lobdell continues to nail the characterizations of the characters, and move the plot forward in a unique way. You never know what is really going to happen next. Brett Booth does a fantastic job with the art. After his Justice League of America run with James Robinson, he is still nailing his ability to detail a whole bunch of different characters, and make them unique at the same time. With these two on the book, I hope DC Comics does not replace them for the foreseeable future. Read Full Review

    Wow, so why the hell doesn't THIS Scott Lobdell also write Red Hood and the Outlaws and Superboy?! This issue actually gave me some serious hope for this series. I mean it was that good! Hell, I can't believe this is the same series I was so down on only a few minutes earlier(after finishing off issue #2). Read Full Review

    We are on the verge of finally seeing the Teen Titans together as a team. More focus is given to characters such as Kid Flash and Red Robin. We're introduced to new characters Solstice and Bunker. Wonder Girl also makes an appearance. The gang's all here, now we're ready to see them all together. Having new characters gives the chance to really set this series apart from past incarnations. Part of 'The New 52' was to mix things up and add new life. While characters like Kid Flash have some differences that we're still discovering, the new characters are adding another layer to the mystery. Bunker even manages to lighten up the mood of the book. Once the team is officially together, things will move in a new direction. Read Full Review

    "Teen Titans" #3 is showing more than ever this series finding its own voice and tone, and it's a good one. With the promise that next issue should finally pull the team together, I find myself genuinely interested in what happens next in a "Teen Titans" comic. It's been a while since we've had that for the Titans. This is definitely one of the more pleasant surprises of the New 52. Read Full Review

    IGN - Poet Mase Nov 23, 2011

    Teen Titans continues to be an unabashed work of fancy with issue #3, but the afternoon cartoon charm of the characters coupled with a slowly unfolding story of mystery and camaraderie make the book a worthwhile gamble. Threads dangled in the forms of Detritus and Celine are interesting enough to promise a strong plotlines to come. Read Full Review

    On the downside, the Kid Flash wipe out just seemed like a bad joke. Detritus' origin may be the worst I've heard in years. Glider wings don't CLIMB like that. I don't like "dark Solstice" but then, the DCNU seems to be a dark place. And I'm hoping the team hasn't met but is scattered all over bit comes to an end soon. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Nov 27, 2011

    I'm willing to stick it out for another issue or two, at least to see if the gathering of the actual team will shake off the blandness and get the plot moving, but so far, the title feels soundly run-of-the-mill. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 24, 2011

    The story isn't a bad one, but it is chapter three of an ongoing story, and we're already somewhat adrift in teenage superpowered angstland, and Bunker doesn't get much to do in his big debut issue. Read Full Review
