    Thankfully I can focus on the action and on the brilliant dialogue, ignoring the niggles in the issue. Adam Glass is adding more and more heat to the pot and, with D'Jinn, he has created a character I care about, but who really frightens me. Being a Teen Titans/ Titans fan for over three decades (I own the issues where Dick Grayson gave up on being Robin and became Nightwing) no other Titans member has had me more on edge since Raven's turn to the demonic, or Terra from the legendary "Judas Contract" storyline. I don't think that there's higher praise than that. Read Full Review

    A rare Annual... that matters!  A pair of high-quality stories that would feel completely at-home in the ongoing title... which, might be where they belonged in the first place! Read Full Review

    Overall I enjoyed this issue. Adams writing is great, I'm enjoying what he's doing with the group and actually look forward to seeing how this continues to progress. Hi-Fi's coloring is stunning, Kid Flash and D'Jinn are great example's of this. I preferred the writing in “Robin vs Robin” but liked the art better in “Joy to the World”, but I didn't dislike either story and found the annual enjoyable overall. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - David Howard Jan 31, 2019

    This annual sets up some new themes for the upcoming issues and is entertaining to boot. All too often, annuals feature one-off stories that are interesting but ultimately useless to the larger story arc. In this case, Glass has given us two stories that both tie back to what is going on while introducing new elements to look forward to. The artwork in both stories is adequate if not mind-blowing and does a very good job conveying the story and action therein. In truth, while I preferred the pencils by Ryan Benjamin in “Robin vs Robin”, I preferred the inking by Jordi Tarragono in “Joy To The World”. Richard Friend's inking seemed over saturated and messy at times while the pencils by Jose Luis were not quite up to the standards set by Ryan Benjamin in the first story. Overall this was a very enjoyable book and very deserving of a better than average grade. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Chris Egan Feb 4, 2019

    "Teen Titans" Annual #1 is full of solid action and stake-raising dialogue with greater darkness just out of sight. Even with ties to recently passed story-lines, it is still an exciting book for readers new and old. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Feb 5, 2019

    Though something of a mixed bag in terms of overall quality, there's enough meat on the bones of these stories to justify the extra dollar price tag. Adam does a great job moving his subplots running, but if you were expecting a conclusion to the Robin/Red Hood/The Other story, you'll be a bit disappointed. Read Full Review

    This annual was a mixed bag as it hyped the disappointing and forced battle of Robins, but the secondary story was actually a worthwhile read. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 5, 2019

    A lot of 90s-style bluster and bombast with very little payoff, and even competent art can't overcome the mean-spirited story and dialogue. Read Full Review

    This title is a complete mess on every possible level, and all the characters involved deserve much better. Read Full Review
