    I keep looking for faults in Teen Titans #45, but I honestly can't find any. If I had to pick one, it would be that I have to wait for another issue to keep enjoying this run. Genuinely loving this and I know you will too. Great job team, can't wait for #46 Read Full Review

    There's still a lot of story to tell, and sadly we only have two more issues for it to be told in. I'll treasure the Adam Glass/Robbie Thompson, Bernard Chang/Javi Fernandez era of Teen Titans, as it's been brilliant. I can't wait to see what our cliffhanger character, and shadowy visitor will bring to the table next month. Read Full Review

    But some of my favorite moments came at the expense of Tim Drake openly being referred to as "everyone's fourth favorite Robin," and Roundhouse having the most clarity out of anyone in the entire book. Read Full Review

    It's too bad Teen Titans is going in an interesting direction just as it's staring cancellation in the face, but for readers sticking around for the end it's wrapping up well. Read Full Review

    Generally, Teen Titans is attempting to wrap up the loose ends of it's story by giving the remaining Titans a chance to resolve their own personal demons. The story is bogged down a few times by attempting to take on too many dangling threads like Red Hood, and in doing so takes the focus of where it should be, which is the team we still have. I like that the title obviously is pushing towards and ending, I just hope it can find a good balance by the end. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 15, 2020

    While this book never really felt like it rebounded after the Djinn War, especially now that Damian has gone full heel mode, there are moments here between the rest of our Teen Titans that I enjoy and feel that if they weren't in such a dark situation that we could actually get the "Friends" aspect of this book that I've desperately wanted out of this title. Beyond that though, we get a killer cliffhanger that I can't wait to see more of, I just wish that I was a fan of the art in this book because the style just drags the whole experience down for me.

    Major Spoilers - Wayne Hall Sep 18, 2020

    I applaud the effort to provide more diversity in Teen Titans. You've got an alien, a heavy set misfit, a female archer, and a speedster of color. I really wanted this to work. I just don't think it does. Robin kept my interest in the book. Now that he's gone, I may be leaving, too. Read Full Review

    The Titans fight some small problems, then some bigger versions, while guest stars poke their heads into the issue. It's the definition of treading water, and that makes the upcoming conclusion seem like a welcome relief. Read Full Review
