    Teen Titans Academy #5 is another fine issue from Tim Sheridan and Steve Lieber. This series has been a delightful surprise and Sheridan has me hooked on it. I can hardly wait to see what he has planned for the Academy's summer break. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Kevin M. Gallagher, Jr Aug 4, 2021

    Teen Titans Academy #5 takes a step out of the series' normal storytelling to focus on the Bat Pack, and it works beyond words. This origin story not only took its time to flesh out some of the most interesting characters, but it also pushes the story forward in big strides. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Jul 27, 2021

    Lieber uses a traditional drawing style that is complimented by a muted color palette. The detailed artwork and perfectly delivered tone make for a captivating issue that is exciting and interesting. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jul 27, 2021

    Teen Titans Academy #5 is a great end to a two-part story that features a peculiar and intriguing superhero mini team known as the Bat Pack. It's an origin story with Scooby vibes and a continued tangling mystery of Red X's identity. Teen Titans Academy does well to blend kid-fantasy and smartly veers into seriousness. Read Full Review

    Theres a turf war brewing within the academy and Sheridan and Lieber set the stage nicely for the second semester. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Swara Ahmed Jul 27, 2021

    Teen Titans Academy #5is an overall good issue that continues the exciting journey of the inaugural student body of the academy but suffers from stifling the exciting narrative we've had so far. While flashback series can be good and getting to know more about the Bat-Pack is great, this, unfortunately, felt somewhat disconnected from the main beats of the story we're invested in. But the Bat-Pack may simply need more time to grow. The art and lettering complement Sheridan's great writing, and it still remains a generally fun issue nonetheless. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Corbin Nelson Jul 28, 2021

    Teen Titans Academy #5 still has some cringe dialogue and relies on a flashback instead of focusing on the kids within the context of the school, which is " I assume " what everyone is here for. That said, with improved art/colors from Lieber and Stewart and some desperately needed characterization from Sheridan, overall this is definitely a step up from most of the previous issues of Teen Titans Academy.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 27, 2021

    If you want to learn about how Diego Perez became Chupacabra and pretty much nothing else, then maybe this issue is for you but it really felt like we did a disservice to the Bat-Pack by not actually showing how they all became who they became or how they even became a family...... Not to mention the Red X bits in this aren't keeping me nearly as intrigued as I think this book wants me to be. The art is decent but ultimately this Bat-Pack pseudo origin story fell really flat.

    The Batman Universe - Hannan Mouawad Jul 29, 2021

    Overall, Teen Titans Academy #5 does a good job giving us at least a tiny bit more information on three of the students at the academy, and what brought them there. However, I did find the pacing of the story to be a bit rocky, with a lot being crammed into twenty-four pages, and truthfully what, exactly, prompted Red X to unmask and share his identity to just the three teenagers from Gotham eludes me.
