    As much as I want to know who Red X is, I would read still read endless issues hunting him if they remain at this high a standard. I give a collective 10/10 for the whole creative team behind this issue. If you haven't read this series yet you should pick up this almost stand-alone issue and see if it works for you.

    This issue completely blew me away with its structure and humour as our young Titans hunt the identity of Red X. Everything I love about Teen Titans is packed into this issue which is crammed full of story, chemistry, humour, action and a whole lot of heart. As much as I want to know who Red X is would read endless issues hunting him if they remain at this high of a standard. A collective 10/10 for the whole creative team behind this issue. If you haven't read this series yet you could easily pick up this almost stand alone issue and see if it works for you. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Swara Ahmed Jun 22, 2021

    Teen Titans Academy #4 is a great and fun story that introduces readers to new members of Teen Titans Academy who try to figure out a mystery that even the older Titans can't solve. There's so much humor and heart that it will have you feeling as though you're watching an episode of the Teen Titansanimated series. Sheridan continues to build a masterful story with this issue, and I'm even more excited for where it goes. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Kyle David Jun 22, 2021

    Overall Teen Titans Academy continues to be a strong contender for one of the best Infinite Frontier titles. As ever with new titles featuring new characters there is a constant fear of "When will this get the sudden chop?" but hopefully that never comes to be as TTA is a strong title on it's own merit without the need for constant A list character appearances.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Jun 22, 2021

    Chupacabra narrates the adventures of the Bat Pack. They interrogate several students and eventually find themselves in an unanticipated situation. When the investigation of a surprising student goes awry, an adult Titan warns them to stop their search. Later, they encounter someone unexpected.The Story: Sheridan creates a young and energetic narrative filled with excitement. This chapter focuses on the junior Teen Titans, and plays very well for an adolescent audience. The Bat Packs adventures are a fun introduction to detective work. And while it contains minimal danger, there is lots of action. In this edition, tight and detailed drawing are enhanced by brilliant color work of mainly blue tones. Lieber and Stewart do a good job with creating a youthful atmosphere, while using a very mature art style. This issue is very transportive. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jun 22, 2021

    The Red X storyline doesnt seem like it can sustainable for much longer, but with lighter twists like this issue Sheridan could conceivably turn the tide and make Titans Academy a class worth sitting in for each month. Read Full Review

    This quasi-detour shows just how much potential Teen Titans Academy has as an ensemble title, and here's hoping that sense of charm and style continues going forward. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Jun 29, 2021

    With Teen Titans Academy #4, Sheridan is starting to explore the title's primary mystery: the identity of Red X. However, we are left with more questions than answers. A bit frustrating, but it serves as a unique hook to keep readers interested. With Tim Sheridan's storytelling and Steve Lieber's stellar artwork, DC has a winner in Teen Titans Academy.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jun 22, 2021

    While I normally really enjoy the art in this series, the art takes a bit of a hit with our fill-in artist this issue while the story actually improves now that it focuses on the students involved in the title. Yeah, they're still hunting down Red X, who I'm completely over by now, but the way it's done allows us to see the students of Teen Titans Academy in a new, fun, and interesting way.

    The Batman Universe - Hannan Mouawad Jun 24, 2021

    Overall, Teen Titans Academy #4 felt more like a filler episode to the series than providing anything else in terms of plot or character development. The metatextual parody had some funny moments, and on one hand, any Batman fan can share that sentiment with the teens from Gotham, but on the whole, the three main characters remain as unknown to me be as before. Hopefully, the next issue will grow the characters and plot a bit more along with my love for this series. Fingers crossed! Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Corbin Nelson Jun 23, 2021

    As I said earlier, Teen Titans #4 reads like filler. Like a not-great backup story that somehow devoured its A-plot. I started out " four long issues and many moons ago " bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, raring to love this series. Presently, I find myself jaded and world-weary, dreading each new Teen Titans Academy, longing for the gimmick-ridden disappointment to end. Teen Titans #4 only further buried my soul in ennui. Darque existential ennui. Or, ya know, whatever. Ugh. Read Full Review
