    Batman-News - Terry Miles, Jr. Apr 2, 2015

    I really enjoy reading this title whenever a new issue drops, and the drama surrounding Superboy's return is just what I needed to keep me going. Looks like the Titans are headed for some uncharted territory that will differ greatly from their celebrity days they were just getting use to. If you haven't kept up with the Titans, now's a great chance to hop onboard. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Apr 13, 2015

    If you've had a problem with the current Teen Titans run because it hasn't really lived up to your expectations........... Well, this issue just might be the one you've been looking for. The characters have real emotion here and adding to that, we have a "Who Done It?" story line featuring Superboy and that alone should get everyone to the comic shop to pick this up. I hope that the series continues in this fashion when the title returns in June. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Nate Stout Apr 3, 2015

    The characterization is pretty good here. All the Titans act like themselves, at least staying consistent with the Pfeifer's run so far. The only questionable characterization is that of J'onn J'onzz. J'onn isn't generally portrayed as being this violent or raged out. While he does fight, he is generally a calmer presence. However, given the context of this massacre, and the fact that J'onn himself is the sole survivor of genocide, we can see where this might have hit a nerve for him. We also see some development for Red Robin, as he struggles to maintain his belief that forming the Titans was an ultimately good thing to do. Overall, King and Pfeifer have brought us a compelling story, driven by natural dialogue and interesting characters. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Jim Remolde Apr 3, 2015

    My rating is for the action and the character pieces, though I did feel that the character pieces were drawn out probably to fill the higher page count of the annual. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Apr 2, 2015

    Though the annual itself comes off as a bit wanting, the issue's final pages do serve in giving the book something it's sorely needed -- a direction. Read Full Review

    Population Go - Chris Lemmerman Apr 4, 2015

    Despite my negativities, if you're already reading Teen Titans, this issue is worth picking up. It's a little hard to justify the higher price point, but it's an essential part of the new storyline that continues the themes Pfiefer has been using, such as social media and the public's opinion of the Titans, as well furthering some plot points in the series whilst bringing back a fan favourite character in Superboy. The art and dialogue don't quite work as well as you'd hope, but it's a bump on the road that I'm willing to overlook, especially given the cliffhanger ending to the annual that has me wishing yet again that Convergence wasn't derailing everything for two months.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Apr 2, 2015

    Unfortunately, the Annual issue is hampered by some pretty terrible art. So I finally get what I want, the Teen Titans are the actual star of their own comic, but I still can't appreciate it because this is one ugly comic. Read Full Review
