    But Why Tho? - Swara Ahmed Dec 14, 2021

    Teen Titans Academy #9is an exciting and chilling propulsion of the story forward. Sheridan writes the teachers and students into their most challenging struggle yet, and the art by Norton stands out especially as he designs all these heroes in a formal gathering. There's drama at the dance, and you won't want to miss out on it in this unexpectedly chilling story. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 14, 2021

    Teen Titans Academy #9 is a good blend of the innocence of these young heroes and the dark ramifications of what they face from villains outside of the school. There is a lot of weight resting on their abilities, but what about their emotional readiness? What about deserving a childhood? These are themes Sheridan touches on and it's exciting to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Rob Stryczek Dec 14, 2021

    I'm curious what this shocking moment means for the cast and especially Red X. He made a difficult decision that is going to alter the course of the rest of the series. I wonder how the students will respond when they find out or how long it'll take for them to find out after what the Titans witnessed. Read Full Review

    As usual, this title is a mix of a lot of plotlines, and some are much better than others. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Dec 14, 2021

    While you do get our Titans reunited with Roy Harper this issue, the reunion kind of comes off a bit lackluster and is quickly overshadowed by some weird Red X stuff that ultimately feels like we're continuing to elevate the character by making others look worse. There's a lot of padding this issue that it doesn't need but more than anything this series feels like it just doesn't want to tell a story and is simply here to string us along as much as it can.

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Dec 14, 2021

    Teen Titans Academy seems like its on a precipice and in danger of losing all of its positive momentum earned over recent months. My interest is waning, but Im hopeful Sheridan can make this a title worth being excited about again. Read Full Review

    I really liked it.
    It was rhythmic and not jerky like the previous times. I love to see the 'old Titans' together. And I like the new ones. They become familiar to me. The intricacy is a bit wonky but it has nevertheless gained in consistency. We feel that it could finally take off. Go one more effort!!

    Slightly better, but still this series seems like it's struggling a lot.

    So disappointing.
    It was supposed to be an emotional and intriguing issue. Wally and Roy finally meet after the Flash annual and HIC. Dick and Wally interact for the first time in forever, even Garth showing up. However, instead of all these, we got a pitch on how the Titans are drafting the new students and are afraid of them. Then we get more Red X acting very strangely, then we see someone trying to recruit the new students to be the new fearsome five... Yes, it was just as weird as it sounds.
    Every time I get a new TTA issue I hope that this time it would be better, and each time I'm disappointed again.

    Full of Memberberries with nothing to add. The ending really feels out of left field with there seeming to be a page missing to explain X actions. It seriously just jumps the shark of the hole Fearsome Five. Overall nothing happens in the book it just sits there and does nothing. Mediocre all the way through.

    Okay, that was freaking awful. For one thing it was just poorly written and boring. But that happens all the time and is relatively inoffensive.

    I don't agree with those that complain of a character being 'mistreated.' They're characters(!). But turning Garth into an annoying afterthought tagalong is just gross, especially after so many years of essentially disregarding the fact that he was a founder.

    For the last several decades, Starfire and Raven and Cyborg and Beast Boy (the "New" Teen Titans) have been treated more like founders than the Fab Five. Finally a book that recognizes a Fab Four brings back the fifth then does this with him? Notice I said "with" not "to." (They're characters(!).) Regardless, I'm out.

    Disappointing as always, the writer again fails at the job he signs on to. This issue was supposed to be emotional yet again fails to be anything, the same old mistakes are going on this series where it hasn't yet decided if it wants to be about the Titans or the new teens or the academy or red X. The answer the meme "Yes" in general it wants to be about all of the aforementioned topics but doesn't know how to handle any. This book seriously needs a new writer and new set of cast members.

    Lastly the art has been for some reason just dying down, at first it had some really nice art but now it is not even pleasant to look at heck some pages are just ugly, and that is coming from a person who doesn't like to score a issue based of o more
