    Teen Titans (2016-) #23 bends and breaks friendships before rebuilding them come issue's end. A crazy cool story complemented by animated artwork, this is one of the best issues of Teen Titans (2016-) thus far. Read Full Review

    While it does face some issues in the characterization and plot structure, TEEN TITANS #23 is a very satisfying new issue for the series. Writer Adam Glass does a fantastic job giving readers a panoramic look at so many elements of this story in a well-paced and clear way, while artist Bernard Chang gives us a fantastic visual experience.

    Weird Science - Chris Oct 17, 2018

    Another impressive issue of the Teen Titans... another one, and I might think we've somehow teleported back to 2003.  The Titans haven't been this consistently good in what feels like forever!  If you're still on the fence... or have been scared off since The New-52, trust me when I say: it's safe to come home!

    So the book is progressing reliably. While I cannot say I was thrilled with this issue, I was certainly not disappointed, either. Read Full Review

    VerdictAnother fun and action packed issue. It was great seeing Lady Vic again, she's another blast from the past. The shock of page two of the issue marries well with shocking events depicted inBatman #55, Nightwing #50 and Heroes In Crisis #1. The ongoing arc in this series, the characters and the consistently attention grabbing cliff hangers always leave me wanting more. The only (very) slight let down was the inconsistent art.

    Dark Knight News - John Hagmann Oct 19, 2018

    Teen Titans #23 was a solid issue that moved Glass' narrative forward. Also, it served to add a terrifying element of reckless abandon to The Other. Furthermore, tension continued to build between teammates. Different styles, levels of experience, and expertise brought the inherent conflict to the fore. Romantic relationships and the jealous feelings they induce add to the flavor of this newly minted team. Author, Adam Glass has left plenty of room to pursue multiple angles and directions in subsequent issues. Consequently, I am anxious to see how the storyline develops! Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Oct 17, 2018

    This issue definitely felt like the kind of story that arrived at the right time for the book. It also helps that Glass introduces a threat that is takes some of the darkness of the Titans and focuses on the villain instead. I'm looking forward to seeing if Glass and Chang can maintain the newfound momentum come next issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Jason Saba Oct 17, 2018

    So many Teen Titans volumes have meandered off after an initial promising start and this Rebirth volume was no different, but the hiatus and refresh seems to have given this title quite a jump start. The 1-2 punch of Glass and Chang is working really well and hopefully they can stay consistent. Read Full Review

    The team is starting to come together and the characters starting to develop, so it's starting to grow on me. Bright and energetic art makes the comic visually engaging, and if nothing else we're getting to see how Damian acts when he likes someone. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Oct 19, 2018

    Teen Titans isn't a terrible book, but it does need to decide which story it wants to tell, as well as the audience it's intended to target. I can't help but feel that Adam Glass and Bernard Chang had a grasp on this, but potentially faced interference after complaints from fans concerning darker tones in the beginning. It feels very similar to what's taking place with Nightwing this week. Here's my opinion on this" Stick to your plan. Even when I don't like an idea, I'd rather see that idea fulfilled than abandoned part of the way through the story. Why? Because more often than not, no matter how much I may dislike an idea, abandoning said idea before completing it tends to result in a product that is even worse" Teen Titans has potential, but DC/ Glass and Chang need to let it be what it could be if they want to reach that potential.

    Let’s just start off by saying that, the variant cover looks like it’s from Batman brave and the bold tv show, truly gorgeous. Roundhouse this issue was surprisingly my favorite character though I didn’t need to know about how he goes to the bathroom at times! We also learned why Kid Flash’s powers didn’t work the night that Roundhouse “died”, which the excuse was lame. We also get some drama between Djinn and Red Arrow, which makes me question why Damian likes Djinn, is it organic or magical. This comic gets better and better!

    This issue was narrated by Djinn. I'm enjoying this title more and more as the issues move forward. While the team still has some problems to work out, they are gelling more; and Robin is asserting his leadership

    At the end of Teen Titans # 22, Robin received their next mission from Red Hood. Issue # 23 starts with the team executing their mission. This was actually a very huge mission and the writers did a great job explaining why Batman was not involved. Robin formulated a great action plan and established his self as a strong leader.

    We sort of find out how Roundhouse survived the explosion in # 21, as he is reintroduced back on the team. Let me say that Roundhouse is becoming my favorite character in this titl more

    This is slightly above average, I think it works fine, but God, Roundhouse is cringey. Like a 50 year old's first foray into youthful internet culture.
