    If you skipped out on this one due to the garish costume redesigns or slow-to-get-going first couple of issues, I'd heartily recommend giving this one another shot, if not now, than at least in September when the #0 issues hit. Read Full Review

    The team is together but they are facing their biggest threat yet. They thought they were ready but now all their secrets are in the hands of their enemies. That means readers get to find out some of those secrets of the different members and what that means for their histories in the "New 52." We're also getting a glimpse into the upcoming crossover, "The Culling" which is bound to have lasting repercussions for these characters as well as the ones in LEGION and RAVAGERS. The art was handled by Ig Guara which gave an interesting look at some of the characters but left others looking a little odd at times. Big things are coming for the team, provided they can survive this encounter. One can only imagine what Scott Lobdell has up his sleeve in terms of the future of this series. Read Full Review

    The art is another story. Absent are the crisp pencils of Brett Booth and in come the cartoony and jaded pencils of IG Guara. As I got into the issue, I did not mind it as much. However, looking back, it is quite a contrast from Booth's when I first laid eyes on the differences between Booth's cover and the sequential art inside. I am guessing Booth was probably preparing for the aforementioned event, and the plans Lobdell/Booth had were pushed back because DC wanted to "world build." While that is all nice and fine, the plans of the writer/artist team should come first. They are what build the comic for the most part; not the company that publishes it... Read Full Review

    "Teen Titans" #8 serves both as primer (for those who haven't read the title before) and teaser (for those who have been reading) and while it's not a bad prelude to the big storyline, it's not as good as the title normally is from month to month. "Teen Titans" has proven itself to be a fun book month in and out, but this one feels like a small misstep off its normal path. Nothing to worry about, but if it wasn't for the hints about future stories, I suspect it would be quickly forgotten in the months to come. Read Full Review

    Teen Titans is an odd series. It can have moments of sheer idiocy, like ignoring a perfectly good cliffhanger, but then it always seems to tease enough plot threads that make me want to come back. This issue is decent overall, despite the shaky beginning and the cryptic ending, and it gives us just enough to come back for another instalment. The Culling begins next week in Teen Titans Annual #1, so hopefully that will finally answer some of the questions readers have. Read Full Review

    Somebody needs to save the Teen Titans, and I don't mean the team -- I mean the book. It's bad and getting worse and they deserve so much more than this. It's sad to see characters I really enjoy end up like this, because we're eight issues in now and this series is still not worth reading. Read Full Review

    Also, Superboy is on the cover, yet not in the issue. This is sooooooo aggravating I cannot tell you. Read Full Review
