"Djinn War" continues! Elias and his army of genies have begun their assault on heaven, and the only person capable of stopping him is his younger sister Djinn-who is currently trapped in purgatory. But Robin, Crush and the rest of the Teen Titans have a plan to bust her out-and the road to purgatory goes through hell itself. But how do you get to hell, you ask? Simple...you only have to die!

    The characters all feel real, the book looks great and the the threat levels are as high and credible as any I've encountered in over four decades reading comics. Read Full Review

    Teen Titans #40 was as spectacular a comic-book as you could ever hope for. I loved every panel. When it ended all I wanted was to keep reading. For so much intensity and action it ends so quickly, which is always the sign of a good read, for me. Read Full Review

    The only downside to this issue is that it pulls on a lot of familiar comics tropes. It's essentially throwing a fresh coat of paint on a used car. But, it still drives and gets you from point A to point B. Read Full Review

    It can be rather tricky to work in a story of heaven and hell into a superhero series, but Adam Glass and Robbie Thompson have found a way to make it work in Teen Titans. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Mar 18, 2020

    The scope of our story has grown exponentially and our heroes find themselves in way over their heads as they head off on a quest to save Djinn and possibly heaven at the same time.  The art in this issue is great, the individual character moments are interesting, even if they're kind of rehashing things we've already known about the characters, but all in all, I can't wait to see what happens next.

    The visions of purgatory didn't quite have the kick I wanted, but overall it's a well-done chapter with an impressive (if telegraphed) cliffhanger. Read Full Review

    The tone of the book has also found a nice balance between it's lighter and more serious elements, making this both a funny read and one that isn't afraid to dive into what the characters are going through. The pace is moving rapidly, and I for one can't wait to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Mar 23, 2020

    Although normally a reliably entertaining title,Teen Titans #40 chooses to play it far too safe and winds up being an exercise in banality instead. The art team saves it from being a complete wash, at least. Read Full Review

    Teen Titans #14, part of the final arc of Adam Glass' run, literally takes the Teen Titans to hell and back, sending each member of a dark night of the soul " but it really only emphasizes just how skin-deep most of these characters are. Read Full Review
