    This was a great issue. I particularly liked that Tim again is shown as the leader he is. He did not use the teams powers to bring down the Queen, instead he used his intellect. This is finally showcasing Tim as he should be shown. The capable leader and not the whining emo teen we had been subjected to up until these last two issues. Read Full Review

    Teen Titans is always good for a coordinated superhero team up. This issue is no different. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Aug 28, 2016

    The Teen Titans do something in this issue that I'd not grown accustomed to: teamwork and self-sacrificing heroics. The story isn't amazing, but serviceable enough as a showcase for this newly-invigorated group, just in time for it to wrap up and turn into Teen Titans: Rebirth #1. Ah well, I suppose all loose ends have been tied up and all angst worked out through the power of friendship. I would have liked to see more of this team, but I can't say I'm sorry to be moving on from the title! Read Full Review

    All told, Teen Titans #23 told a pretty solid, self-contained story. I enjoyed the issue and it moved the Titans arch forward into new territory, as they are no longer fugitives. The team continues to grow and develop, especially Tim's Red Robin. For me, Tim Drake is being positioned to assume larger responsibilities in the DCU, much like Dick Grayson's leadership of the Titans did for his character in yesteryear. This is a welcomed move, and I would love to see Tim get more recognition and storylines in other titles. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Aug 25, 2016

    There has been no build-up to the end. No story to justify the past several issues. From all appearances, Teen Titans is going to go out with a whimper. But rather than just a regular whimper, this one has been dragged out for issue after issue of mediocrity. Read Full Review

    If DC insists on publishing more Teen Titans before Ben Percy takes over next month, that's their right"but I wish they would have made more issues like this than like the one we got last month. #23 fails to make a big splash, but it reads okay at least once, and provides some light entertainment without aspiring to greater significance. My score says it's average, because it is, but this is an average I'm content with as we say goodbye"even if it floats awkwardly outside of current continuity. Read Full Review
