    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Mar 22, 2017

    All around, Teen Titans #6 was a smoother, more enjoyable read than the previous arc. If this is the new norm, the Teen Titans is on the right path to become a strong read each month. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Eric Cline Mar 22, 2017

    This is a great issue. It's fun, colorful, introduces Aqualad in a promising manner, and switches the series from being a Damian Wayne book guest-starring the Teen Titans to a true Teen Titans book. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Chris Mar 22, 2017

    Very nice opening chapter for our next arc.  This issue offers an easily accessible jumping on point for new readers, while advancing both the story and the characters.  Percy's dialogue is (for the most part) spot-on, while it seems Koi Pham is feeling more at home with this great cast of characters.

    Comics: The Gathering - Because Speed Force Mar 22, 2017

    Issue #6 does a great job of interweaving light-hearted moments with some serious, soul searching moments, and I can always appreciate a story that that takes my emotions from one end of the spectrum to the other. I'm very much looking forward to seeing Jackson join the Teen Titans, and I'm also looking forward to seeing the resolution of the return of a classic villain. You'll have to read it yourself to find out who! Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Aron Pohara Mar 22, 2017

    Overall, Teen Titans #6 is a fun read. We were introduced to a Young Justice character, whose introduction is handled admirably and does not seem forced. On the other hand, the cast is slowly growing, so it looks like some of the characters might be taking a backseat to others from time to time. That is fine for now, but the book is called Teen Titans, and being a team book, everyone should be getting equal page space. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Mar 22, 2017

    A very good start to the book's second arc,Teen Titans #6 has plenty to laugh at, while trimming (much of) the undesirable elements that clung to the fringes of “Damian Knows Best”. Aqualad's prior fame makes him intriguing enough, but his introduction here stands on its own, and I'm excited to spend more time with him. Great work from Pham, Von Grawbadger, and Charalampidis brings Percy's vision to life with energy and style. If it doesn't already have one, you ought to give this book a spot on your list.

    Nation Of Nerds - Shaun Mar 22, 2017

    In Teen Titans #6 Beast boy invites a local news reporter, Bonnie Chung to come shine some light on Teen Titan Tower and interview the team. Within minutes she is Kidnapped by someone or something. Due to that, it's up to our Teen Titans to spring into action and find her. A great introduction to the characters we know and love.

    Newsarama - David Pepose Mar 23, 2017

    All in all, I think Titans fans will generally be pleased that the team feels like a bunch of teenagers hanging out rather than the bad characterizations that plagued the "New 52." Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Ryan Blair Mar 24, 2017

    Who knows if these questions will be answered? But I can definitely say that I am looking forward to finding out. Percy has been doing an excellent job on Teen Titans and his partner Khoi Pham has done a great job in showcasing the teen super heroes…even if they were just eating pizza and playing with their oversized were-manbats. I think we will be in for a treat with the introduction of Aqualad as his water powers will definitely be something to behold and Pham is definitely up for that challenge. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Allen Thomas Mar 22, 2017

    Im a firm believer that comics should reflect reality, but Teen Titans #6 does so for Jackson in a way that doesnt feel like his background matters. Its only a setup, driving him toward the Titans, not a realistic way of explaining his experiences with pain, hurt, and oppression. Beyond his story, there are other moments, in writing and art, that detract from the feel of this new arc. Jackson has been touted as the next major member of this team, but for him to feel like he was worth the wait, the story itself needs some drastic changes. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Danny Saab Mar 22, 2017

    The banter and chemistry between the Teen Titans was great,but Aqualad's side story did bring the book down for me. I'm not sure why Percy felt it necessary to bring up Aqualad's sexual orientation either. Perhaps it was to demonstrate how hewas feeling different then everyone else, or for shock value. Either way, the story in general fell flat, and made me uninterested in Aqualad, which is really to bad as his character was great in Young Justice. Here's hoping that Percy can make me care about Aqualad again. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Mar 25, 2017

    In short, Teen Titans #8 feels like an attempt to recapture the 'Day In The Life' stories that Wolfman & Perez were so good at back in the day, but instead feels unfocused and fragmental, with some confusing bits of art and an unclear sense of time. Read Full Review

    This book is really growing on me. Lots of fun character stuff and the art is gorgeous. This issue is the first of a new arc and a great jumping on point. Very reader-friendly and enjoyable.

    starts with some penetentiary where a guard is making morning rounds... and the whole cell block seems destroyed and there is water on the floor.. at the end of the hallway is just a crater leading off the cliff and down into the sea... Damian is out by the see near the tower playing fetch with Goliath... while a news report plays about the prison breakout... and it mentions that shark attacks are way up lately... as Damian and Beast Boy walk to the tower we see an otter... attacked/killed by something.. presumably a shark... some ok humor while they have lunch then the perimiter alarms go off... seems they have lots of defenses ready... but Beast Boy forgot to tell them he told some reporters they could come by for an interview... the interview is more humor..some of it ok... then we cut to ... Jackson Hyde .. Aqualad? a gay black kid with white hair... learning about some water powers? his mom trying to tell him to keep it all hidden.. then it cuts back to Beast Boy flirting with the reporter when she disappears into the water while he wasn't looking... then back to Aqualad...he tries to show his boyfriend his powers.. and the kids gets angry and just leaves... then we see the reporter.. in a cell under Alcatraz... Aqualad leaves home to go and meet the Teen Titans and show his powers... meanwhile they are searching for the reporter... and are attacked by King Shark for the cliffhanger. the art is really fun and even though I wont' give it a AAA, it was worthy of two screenshots. more even but I refused :) it is better than a 7 because I found myself thinking that maybe THIS could be my "fun non-serious" book now that Silk is gone and the Champions are dragging...

    Great issue. People complain about how bad the New 52 TEEN TITANS was (and they are, absolutely, correct). The fact is, the poor quality of this book preceded the New52. TEEN TITANS had been floundering since Geoff Johns' run. So, I am appreciative that, with the exception of a couple of cringe-worthy moments, the REBIRTH era of the series has been terrific. Koi Pham had proven to be a, more than, suitable replacement for Jonboy Meyers..showing visible improvement from one page to the next. I haven't read a lot from Ben Percy outside of GREEN ARROW (which is decent but uneven at times) but he has proven to be very capable with TEEN TITANS and I remain optimistic. After all, I really can't remember the last time I looked forward to reading TEEN TITANS...but I AM looking forward to issue #7. SCORE: 8.4

    Just ok. We see aqualad. Not bad. Beast boy comes off as an idiot and lets the press in the tower. He even goes as far as to tell them each heroes power set... again idiot. But King Shark is back!!!!
