You may think you know Robin, Wonder Girl, Kid Flash and Aqualad...but you don't really know the original Teen Titans! But before the Titans can come together, they must first get out from under the wings of their respective mentors.

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Jan 4, 2008

    So, I have to decide, is this book just preying on long time fans' nostolgia factor and the complete lack of a story should warrant demerits for the issue or is the pure bliss I got out of the various random scenes all that matters? I'm going to go with the latter, but if you've never read the old Teen Titans, I'm not sure if you'll get as much out of this as I did. Worth checking out by everyone at the least and a must buy for long time Titan fans. Read Full Review

    Besides a head-scratching scene that suggests Wally West and Dick Grayson attend the same school (since when does Wally come from Gotham City?), Wolfram's script doesn't really attempt enough to make any missteps. Wisely, she's left most of the heavy lifting to her unparalleled artistic partner. I'm usually not one to be swayed by artwork alone, but in the case of this book, I have no problem lauding Teen Titans: Year One as nothing short of brilliant based solely on Karl Kerschl's art. Man, I wish this guy drew more comics. Read Full Review

    The art should be enough to justify a purchase for most readers, but I still think newer readers would be better off checking out the classic Marv Wolfman material or the newer Geoff Johns trades instead. I, for one, would rather read about these teens actually beating up bad guys than chatting about beating up bad guys online. Read Full Review
