    I loved every panel of Teen Titans #43, because it's an exciting time to be reading this series. We're moving away from the more supernatural and mythological world of genies, and angels, and more towards old school Gotham, and classic villains, that long term fans will get a real kick out of. Of course, what about Batman? Well let's just say it'd really be worth your while picking up a copy, to see whats going on. Read Full Review

    Haven't checked outTeen Titans in awhile? #43 is a helluva starting point. Things are getting dark for the team, and that couldn't be better for readers. Read Full Review

    I love it when creators can use the past, both as inspiration, and as a launch-pad for new greatness. That's just what Teen Titans is delivering. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Chris Showalter Jul 15, 2020

    Thompson's use of self-discovery is a strength of 'Teen Titans' #43. Unfortunately, some of this work is hurt by some questionable dialogue from Crush and Robin's monologue. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 14, 2020

    We've got the Teen Titans trying to find justice for a murdered villain, but what do they do when the murderer is one of their own?  It's a cool concept that I look forward to, but this issue feels like it wanted to cram too much into this, with Batman and the KGBeast on top of what we were currently dealing with and the transitions and jumps to conclusions felt off here.  The art is great, but I want more out of this title in the long run.

    Teen Titans is at yet another crossroads, which looks like it will end with Robin out from the team he founded. Thompson did good work with Glass so hopefully the long game pulls this arc off as its in a shaky foundation to start. Read Full Review

    There's likely a twist buried beneath all of this, but Teen Titans #43 doesn't offer readers much of a reason to stick around. Instead, it simply moves the pieces about its board in a fashion that would have been aping one of the best series of its time, if only it had appeared 40 years ago. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Matina Newsom Jul 14, 2020

    For me, this issue never really comes together as anything more that themes we've seen play out already. The whole Robin is going down a dark path story has grown overly repetitive, and this issue does little to make it any more interesting than what we've seen before. The team has potential, and while I want to enjoy their part of the investigation at this point I'm so tired of the book doing the same thing over and over I just want something new. If you're looking for a good team book, I'd suggest looking elsewhere for now. Read Full Review
