    The art remains to be really good in this book, and not just this book, but most DC Rebirth books have really good art. However the vibrant use of colours makes the pages come alive. How the Titans will defeat Ra’s and his students is something I’m really wondering. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Jan 25, 2017

    This comic is in fact good, as it builds the new lineup of the Teen Titans well. Damian gets a first hand look at what it's like to be back with Ra's Al Ghul and it ain't pretty. Read Full Review

    Nerd Church Radio - Brandon Reid Jan 25, 2017

    Benjamin Percy is doing an incredible job with this series. The characters are exactly who they should be, it feels like classic Teen Titans but instead we have Damien in the mix as well which spices things up. I like how the Demon's Fist seem to be turning against Mara behind the scenes and can't wait to see what happens with that. The art is fantastic as well. If this series was adapted into an animated show or movie I wouldn't want the art to change at all. It fits the tone of the series perfectly. Read Full Review

    This Titans team continues to find itself and mature.  The spotlight on the disparate adolescent paths of Damian and Mara helps to flesh out both characters quite well.  Great forward momentum as we approach the climax of this arc. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Feb 11, 2017

    And though its dealt with very quickly, this issue also has Kid Flash, the only one of Damians recruits who had not been part of any previous line up of Titans, come to feel that he truly is a member of the team. I expect this will get touched on again, and not too far down the road. Read Full Review

    Thankfully for Damian, he made a greater impression on Beast Boy, Starfire, Raven, and Kid Flash than he expected. It seems Robin crafted himself a new team after all. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Ryan Blair Jan 27, 2017

    Overall I really liked this issue, and Im really digging Benjamin Percys work. Im interested to see if Beast Boy plays a bit more of a leadership role in the teamalthough I love Damian, it would be nice to see him step up to the plate a little bit. The art is also very well done, and I liked the battle over the lava pit between Mara and Damian. Variant covers by Chris Burnham are truly awesome. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jan 26, 2017

    Teen Titans #4 is exactly the issue that this story arc needed to move forward with. The main conflict between Robin and his grandfather, Ra's Al Ghul, added further depth to the fight between the Teen Titans and Demon' Fist. This depth made the fight between Robin and Mara have a greater impact to the overarching story Benjamin Percy has crafter. And while the other Teen Titans didn't get a lot of screen time Percy did maximize how much of them we saw and give some much needed character development for Beast Boy. Now with the Teen Titans united the conflict with the Ra's and the Demon's Fist should only intensify. Read Full Review

    It's entertaining enough, but it would be even more so if the rest of the Teen Titans were given more than they currently have to do. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jan 25, 2017

    Damian Knows Best wraps next month. The monthly release schedule hasn't done the book any favors as it feels like it's dragging out longer than necessary. With a new team member arriving and some new threats coming, these initial growing pans should ultimately prove worth enduring. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Jan 25, 2017

    Ben Percy's Teen Titans continues to show promise, but it also holds onto some of its past flaws (and adds a few new ones). Pham's pencils benefit from far greater consistency than we saw last time, and the narrative tension works quite well; but rushed color work and uncertain characterization take some of the wind out of this book's sails. Even so,Teen Titans provides plenty of entertainment, while occupying a place in DC's line that was poorly served in The New 52. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - John Hagmann Jan 25, 2017

    The story in Teen Titans #4 is straightforward and predictable. Still, seeing the new Teen Titans come together was entertaining. The short-lived matchbetween Damian and Mara over a lava pit was equally fun. Teen Titans continues to explore the intricacies and development of a young Damian Wayne. I am interested to see how his character growsas a result of this narrative arch. Read Full Review

    While predictable, this issue is certainly exciting and full of ninja action. Not to mention a good stab in the back! Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jan 28, 2017

    The Rebirth Teen Titans are good enough as a comic, with incredible art, so I can definitely consider this a well-made comic. But for me, personally,the team is too forced and the storyline leaves a lot to be desired. Read Full Review

    After Jonboy Meyers' departure, I haven't been enjoying the art as much, knowing what could've been. That's no disrespect to Pham, his pencils are still brilliant but for some reason< I found Meyers art more vibrant and fitting for Teen Titans. This is still a very good comic and one of the better offerings from DC Rebirth although I have to give Titans a slight edge just because of the chemistry between the members of that team. The Teen Titans team is in its beginning stages for the most part. Outside of Raven and Beast Boy, the members have yet to develop strong connections although with Damian's selfless acts against Mara and Ra's it looks like the team is finally coming together and next issue should be a blast. I like Starfire's role as the mentor, we all know she belongs with the Titans and would have some interesting interactions with a certain Dick Grayson but I feel Kori is doing something outside of her comfort zone with this new team. I am enjoying this comic although I can't say I love it yet. The storytelling is good for the most part but in a very rare instance, I personally think Marvel's equivalent to Teen Titans, Champions, is the better title between the two. And this is coming from a diehard DC fan...

    Awkward pacing on this one. I liked the mirror thing a little. I wish Damian would've seen himself as his own Batman and not just a clone of his father, and I wish Ras' vision of Damian would've been more personalized too, and not just a clone of Ras. Some poor dialogue. Maybe I don't enjoy Pham's art as much as I'd thought. It's not very thoughtful, doesn't push the book any further than the expectation.
