    I love a good Teen Titans story. Some of my favorite comic arcs are from the 80s version of the New Teen Titans. This harkens back to what I love about the Titans while injecting freshness into the concept. I cant wait for the next issue! Read Full Review

    From awkward hugs, to a little bit of star struck faces, and of course, the Teen Titans, this issue is great! Read Full Review

    And Damian seems to be maturing a bit as well. Hopefully not too much. He does say please in this story, and astonishingly this does not kill him. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Wayne Hall Feb 26, 2017

    This initial story has been a strong one for the Teen Titans, establishing them as individuals in their own rights while blending them together as a group. Nicely done! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Chris Feb 22, 2017

    A satisfying conclusion to a pretty fun opening arc.  Mostly a fight issue here, however one that facilitated character-development and proper plot advancement.  Now, our players are in place... and we're ready to face the Titan-ic future to come. Read Full Review

    I guess the thing to take away from all of this is that no matter how old you are, there isn't a maximum age anyone needs to be to read any given comic. You can't be "too old" for a comic. They can be good and entertaining and even help give some readers a cooldown from some of the heavier comics they've been devouring. The thing is, there is so much talent behind each and every comic that I think it's unfair to pass up on one simply because it's marketed more towards the younger audience. But that's just me.

    Dark Knight News - John Hagmann Feb 24, 2017

    Teen Titans #5 moves the narrative along an unexpected trajectory. The team is drawn closer together through its vulnerability. The Titans' becoming a unit has tremendous impact on its ability to defend, but also exemplifies what life with powers might be for its adversaries. This is a unique and unexpected angle to the story, and lends itself to ongoing intrigue. The appearance of a major character enhances its depth and the tease of an additional member in upcoming issues is tantalizing. Read Full Review

    It has been far too long since the words "Titans, GO!" have been spoken in the pages of DC, but Teen Titans #5 makes it count for something again. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Feb 22, 2017

    No single issue of Ben Percy'sTeen Titans has been a home run; but, as I think back on this first arc, I see Percy's consistency producingan uncommonly solid story. The pace has been near-perfect, with strong beats marching each issue toward an ending that arrives in the fullness of time"not a moment sooner or later. This story is, in the end, greater than the sum of its parts, and that's a good deal for everyone involved. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Ryan Blair Feb 24, 2017

    Overall Pham and Benjamin Percy seem to be a great team and I truly look forward to reading their story each month. I am VERY looking forward to next month as they tease the appearance of the "sixth titan!" Spoilers to those who don't read solicitations or look at future cover art, but Aqualad will be joining the ranks of Titans and I can't wait to see this new dynamic in action. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Feb 27, 2017

    Teen Titans #5 did exactly what it needed to do to establish a strong foundation for the series moving forward. Robin's character arc in this issue helped to highlight how the Teen Titans will be more of a family than just another response team like the Justice League are for the DC Universe. Batman's guest appearance helped drive that home and Percy was able to create a strong connection for the entire team that he can now build on in order to introduce new characters like Aqualad.

    ComicList - Richard Gratton Apr 21, 2017

    Writer Ben Percy's run on Teen Titans gets better with each issue. He has set up a team of heroes who already seem like a quirky family with defined characters whose personalities, strengths and weaknesses draw us in and make us want to know more about each one and what will happen next. Teen Titans is a book I look forward to each month, a solid read definitely worth checking out. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Feb 22, 2017

    Teen Titans wraps its first big storyline with no wholesale improvements or steps back from the previous installments. In that sense, the book has been solidly consistent. With the arrival of a new team member next issue, the dynamic should hopefully improve. So far, Teen Titans isn't wowing me, but it seems like a book headed in the right direction. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Feb 22, 2017

    Teen Titans #5 features a perfectly fine ending with a twist or two up its sleeve, but it still hasn't convinced me it needs to exist. On paper this team could be intriguing, but there isn't enough here to warrant a purchase unless you love these characters singularly. Read Full Review
