    A very good story, and as Beast Boy is one of my favourite Titans, one I highly enjoyed. Read Full Review

    While the book suffers from some unbalanced characterization, TEEN TITANS #18 is a fun romp with the team. The spotlight on Beast Boy succeeds completely, and the plot has a nice, controlled pace. The artistic team has scored a win as well. Read Full Review

    While it won't last much longer, at least Percy and Eaton are giving this roster a fun curtain call. Read Full Review

    Beast Boy doesn't fully realize what he's gotten himself into, after being seduced to the new online startup company of Nevrland by newcomer Joran he allows himself to be subjected to her newly created mind control device in the form of a small robot named Pixie which is injected into the body through the nose and mouth. While Gar feels like he's having the time of his life he doesn't understand that his new 'friend' only wants to use him for his shape changing abilities to be her personal pet..... so to speak. Hopefully the Teen Titans will have the ability to show Beast Boy the error of his ways before its too late. Read Full Review

    Two chapters in and this new arc is proving to be great fun. There's a nice mix of action, and decent characterisation. Benjamin Percy has done some great work on Teen Titans, and over on Green Arrow too. The cliffhanger this issue has left me wanting more, and no-one can say fairer than that. Read Full Review

    This issue is definitely one of the stronger installments in the Teen Titans series. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Mar 29, 2018

    The cliffhanger is predictable, turning Joran into a one-note villain, and overall solid characterization for Beast Boy is lost in an iffy plot. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - John Hagmann Mar 28, 2018

    Teen Titans #18 aptly moves the story forward by introducing significant drama and a villain with valid reasons for taking action. Still, the “Puppeteer” has all the makings of a solid baddie who could return time and again to befuddle the Titans. Poignantly, Ben Percy connects with the ethos of today's youth culture – the sometimes delicate balance between escapism and authenticity. The art is good and the pacing is swift. Overall, this was an enjoyable issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Jason Saba Mar 28, 2018

    Percy's writing this issue attempts to showcase Gar's isolation from the group and how he feels none of them really understand him and how much he resents the way Damian treats him. It's a deep insight into his thoughts and how easily vulnerable he is to someone like Joran, who can say all the right things to make him feel better about himself and his insecurities.

    We The Nerdy - Aron Pohara Mar 30, 2018

    Teen Titans is slowly going to the reimagining, and it does look like we are going to get a brand new creative team again. As a storyline to end a run, this one does seem more filler than a true ending, at least in this issue. The fraction of the team is certainly seen but not completely felt throughout. Hopefully we get back to the bright times of Teen Titanswe had with Wolfman and Perez or Geoff Johns run soon! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Chris Mar 28, 2018

    Not great, not awful... just dull.  A "lame duck" story just filling time until the next volume can begin. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Mar 30, 2018

    Teen Titans #18 isn't a home-run, but it is still a rather enjoyable read. The Puppeteer is fun as a villain, even if she's a bit predictable, but it's the themes found in Percy's script that make this issue worthwhile. A subtle commentary on teens, their desire for attention, struggle with authenticity, and projection of themselves for protection, is moving and great. I hope to see more of this next month!

    The Batman Universe - Bill Heuer Mar 30, 2018

    Overall, I just feel that the motive for the story feels lacking as Beast Boy does not seem to fit the stereotype of a suitable candidate for the Neverland technology. At this point, it feels that the rest of the arc will just be an action piece to release Gar from Jorans hold and destroy the implants which is a little disappointing but the next issue could still hold a surprise.
