Batman has no idea what he's doing. Superman? Not a clue. Wonder Woman? Whatever. Damian Wayne is Robin, and he's done with the bleeding-heart approach favored by the heroes of the senior circuit. New plan of action: recruit a new Teen Titans. Kid Flash, Red Arrow and newbies Roundhouse, D'jinn and...wait, Lobo has a daughter? That'll end well. And then build something in secret deep beneath the new Teen Titans HQ. Secret from his teammates, secret from even Batman. It's a secret that will change the way you look at Robin forever!

    DC Comics News - Steve Ray Jul 25, 2018

    With the amount of interest surrounding the Teen Titans these days; an animated movie in theatres, a hit cartoon show, and the upcoming live action series for the DC Universe Streaming Service, this series needed to deliver a first rate relaunch. I'm happy to say that it has exceeded expectations, and that I can't wait to see what comes next. Read Full Review

    If you havent been reading Teen Titans, youre in luck because this is a great issue to jump into. There are very little ties to the last 19 issues. The big reveal is pretty fantastic too. What Damian does in this issue is both logical and one of the craziest things in the Teen Titans books Ive read. I cant wait to see what the repercussions are. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - AJ Zender Jul 26, 2018

    While some of the minor team members could do with a bit more characterization, TEEN TITANS #20 is a highly satisfying experience with some absolutely fantastic action sequences. The way Glass explores Damian's mentality especially works well in this issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Aug 7, 2018

    The story is tightly told, and the art is energetic and fun. But there is no mistaking that this is continuing a dark tone, as the last couple of pages shockingly reveal. Read Full Review

    As far as first impressions go, this was a strong debut for this new team of Teen Titans. Glass and Chang quickly sold me on their take and I'm intrigued at all the possibilities they can take the title. Read Full Review

    ComicBuzz - Victoria Wilton Aug 2, 2018

    As teenage super hero teams go it looks like the cast is diverse and ticks all the boxes for either ultimate team work or lots of in-fighting (or both!) and I like that they have a bit more attitude that the classic Teen Titans, I look forward to seeing what they get up to. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jul 26, 2018

    Teen Titans #20 is a genuinely dark turn for this team, and it is handled with the skill necessary to keep it from being the edgy Titans. The pacing, tone management, and artwork all work together to make a solid book. This one comes recommended. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Chris Jul 25, 2018

    A vast improvement on what's come before with spectacular art to boot.  Dialogue (and behaviors) border on the cringy at times, which I can overlook, since this is the first time I've been excited about this title (and property) in quite some time. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - Matt Johnson Aug 1, 2018

    I wasn't sure what I was going to think about this team going in. In press I saw before release, I felt like they were trying to sell me on an X-Force for the DC Universe, but in actuality I found I rather liked the book. The teenage angst that Damian expresses, feels real enough and I'm sure it'll be sooner rather than later that his father has something to say about what he's been up to and with whom.

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jul 25, 2018

    Teen Titans has been one of Rebirth's better series though hasn't always stood out with its own voice. This issue though sets the team, and Damian, apart in many ways and should create an interesting narrative moving forward that is sure to become rather explosive. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Charlie Chipman Jul 25, 2018

    Robin has assembled a new team of Teen Titans, and while said team has some potential, it's still too early to tell whether their potential will amount to anything. Adam Glass wastes no time getting this story started, and Bernard Chang's illustrations work well enough, but something is missing.. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Jul 28, 2018

    If you thought Teen Titans would be a bleak, angsty book, the rest assured that's not the case. Instead, this is a diverse book that features a range of emotions, tones, and genres, and it deserves your attention. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Jason Saba Jul 25, 2018

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jul 28, 2018

    Teen Titans #20 showed that there is a lot of potential with the direction Adam Glass has planned for this series. The team that Robin assembled all showed potential to florish under his leadership with a storyline that kicks off this fresh start on a positive note. Still, it is to early to tell if the potential Glass presents can build long-term interest in the Teen Titans. Read Full Review

    It's obvious that this arc is meant to give the Teen Titans a criminally dark side, but that notion doesn't feel at all necessary, if not completely forced. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Adil Syed Jul 27, 2018

    A slower and more conservative story than the Teen Titans special issue. It doesn't take many chances, but it establishes the team and sets the stage for the main antagonist going forwards. Read Full Review

    Nihilist Jul 26, 2018

    Comic leading to this series was great - Robin, Kid Flash and Red Arrow all had different reasons not to follow rules established by the older generation of heroes, seeing their flaws leading to innocent people getting hurt, or criminals walking free.

    I can't say this comic was nearly as enjoyable to me - for now, I don't really like the new team, but naturally, it needs to grow on me, new characters need to get some development first. The story wasn't bad, but it wasn't anything that would blow you away either - it's an enjoyable start, setting up basic differences and disagreements between the team members, their own personal arcs, as well as a bigger mystery involving Brother Blood, Black Mask and Atomic Skull, among few other more

    Good read I am enjoying the fresh new approach. Needed more backstory for some of the new characters but other than that it was solid.

    While relieving in some aspects, the debut issue of the newest incarnation of the Teen Titans brings greater concerns to the forefront in terms of Damian Wayne's new modus operandi. On the other hand, I must admit that enjoyed the newest additions to the team, including Red Arrow, Roundhouse, Djinn, and Crush, and I am glad that Robin and Kid Flash's dynamic still holds over from Ben Percy's time on the book. The Titans newest mission is a proactive one, and it is clear by the end of the issue that he is keeping the darker meaning behind this team away from his teammates. In Teen Titans #20, writer Adam Glass sets the groundwork for an all new team and a growing tension that will begin to grow not only with Batman and The Justice League, bu more

    Robin has assembled a new Teen Titans crew and they are certainly different from past teams. For one, this team is off the books so anything goes. Robin is walking a dangerous path in this comic. As the saying goes, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. While his reasoning is sound, things are not going to end well when Batman finds out about his activities.

    This comic was packed with TOO much information. This comic could have easily been three comics. They showed Robin recruiting his new team and leading them on a mission. I would have much rather got 2 issues of recruitment, so the new characters could have been fleshed out more, and an issue with their mission.

    The artwork was a highlight for thi more

    SloboSOY Jul 26, 2018

    I didn't like this story. Their is another story of Damian thinking he is better than Batman of any Titans leader.
    I'm a little disappointed by Emiko. I din't like crush as I liked Slobo. And all of the other member seem pulled on this.
    This isn't very good.

    Cover - The variant. Better than the regular. But both aren't related to my reading. 1/2
    Writing - He tries to do good, but wasn't. The cliffanger was to dark. D'jinn seem too close of Raven. 1/3
    Arts - The art tend to try to be funny but wasn't made for this story. 2/3
    Feeling - I don't like it. 0/2
