    But Why Tho? - Swara Ahmed Apr 27, 2021

    Teen Titans Academy #2is a great follow-up to the debut of this amazing series. Getting to see the older Titans mentor the new prospective Teen Titans remains as entertaining as ever, and seeing the mystery of Red X unfold makes for an exciting read. I'm glad to see this series continue to go strong and am excited for where it goes next. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Steve J. Ray Apr 27, 2021

    Teen Titans Academy #2 is terrific. The writing, art, and lettering is all of a high standard, the intrigue is deepening, and an unexpected X-Factor turns up, both in the title of this month's story, and in the aforementioned cliffhanger. Who is Red-X, and is the fact that he's wearing a Robin costume on the variant cover a massive clue, or a clever red herring? Read Full Review

    Teen Titans Academy is easily one of the most pleasantly-surprising books in DC's arsenal right now, and this issue only further proves that in spades. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Apr 27, 2021

    The Teen Titans concept works extremely well in the hands of this creative team. Throwing kids into a school setting with danger ever present makes for good drama, and the superhero feel is never lost thanks to the great art. The chaos and calamity of teen superheroes is stronger than ever in Teen Titans Academy and issue #2 shows that. Read Full Review

    Teen Titans Academy has a lot of potential, but feels hamstrung by needlessly forcing the Red X mystery so early into this new run. Read Full Review

    Teen Titans Academy is quickly becoming a great comic series for new and old readers. An abundance of fun and youthful new characters blended with the experienced original Titans line up makes for some interesting times. I don't want to spoil it for people but the last page cliffhanger is not to be missed and opens up the door to a potentially bonkers next issue. Read Full Review

    This is quickly becoming a great comic series for new and old readers. Teen Titans Academy #2 delivers an abundance of fun and youthful new characters. All this, blended with the experienced original Titans line-up, makes for some interesting times. I don't want to spoil it for people but the last page cliffhanger is not to be missed, as it opens up the door to a potentially bonkers third issue. Read Full Review

    Overall, it is a good comic and I would recommend it to the general comic audience, although I feel it would cater more specifically to (hardcore) fans of the Titans lore. Read Full Review

    This new take on the Titans franchise has some elements going for it, but it continues to be roughly five books stuffed into twenty pages and shook thoroughly. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Apr 27, 2021

    Instead of having a Red X mystery out of nowhere, I really wish we would have built up the Red X character and made it feel right for the comic Universe since this is his first introduction into comics and not just said, "Yeah, the cartoon thing happened". There's so much to explore with this series but it seems to want to tell you there's a mystery happening but not giving you any reason to care. That being said, I like a lot of these new characters and think the art is great. I just hope that we get more from this book as the series progresses. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Corbin Nelson Apr 28, 2021

    I really want to like this series, ya'll, but it isn't giving me anything to work with. Tim Sheridan is reaching into the story bag and pulling out twists, reveals, and stingers " but I can't bring myself to care, because I'm not even a teensy bit invested in literally any of the characters. You have to build the Legos up before you can start playing with them, Mr. Sheridan. At least there are no cringy Millenial v Gen-Z jokes this time around... Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Apr 29, 2021

    The first issue established Teen Titans Academy to have a deep cast of fan favorite and new characters to build a strong foundation around. You would not know that by reading Teen Titans Academy #2. This entire issue just rushes through various stories with minimal development or reason to be invested in character arcs. Its all made worse by the set-up for a crossover with the Suicide Squad that is done in the most unexciting way possible. It is such a big disappointment to see the potential Teen Titans Academy had go to waste after only two issues. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Apr 28, 2021

    Too many characters, not enough plot and overly slick art make for a comic book that feels pointless and over-complicated. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Hannan Mouawad Apr 29, 2021

    Unfortunately this issue just didn't hit home for me as I found the young heroes to be disinteresting as characters and the capabilities of Nightwing and the other Titans bit underwhelming. The mystery of Red X still holds a sense of intrigue, but it's a bit off-set by my overall despondent opinion of this issue. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Apr 28, 2021

    The script is hard to access on any level and most of the suspense barely amounts to a yawn. The art is good but cannot save this book. Basically, it is close to unreadable and there is nothing besides the artwork that it has going for it. Read Full Review
