    We have a team book without really having a team. Normally I would think that this would be more bothersome but I like the fact that it adds an element of mystery to the story. We don't know who will stay or go or even who will survive. The struggle Fairchild faces in trying to keep everyone together and safe makes the story more credible versus if everyone was willing to hold hands and run off together. Howard Mackie pretty much has a clean slate to do as he pleases with these characters and that idea is becoming more and more exciting. Ian Churchill adds his own touch to making the characters distinctive along with the familiar characters having slight updates. Hopefully their nemesis will vary and we won't see more of the same characters after them. Read Full Review

    This series continues to be a pleasant surprise and is now one of the titles I really look forward to each month. This strange amalgamation of Gen 13, Teen Titans, and some new characters is mixing up rather nicely. It's one of the most refreshing things to come out of the DCU New 52 and I hope it's got a permanent place in the line-up. Read Full Review

    On art, Ian Churchill does a solid job. The book looks good, at least. He does his best work on Caitlin, I think, and maybe that is because she is the least ridiculous looking of these characters. And she is not covered in those stupid Tron suits that the characters are still wearing. The best part of the book is when we get a peek at some of Churchill's designs for a new villain that is to be featured next issue. It's not Harvest, so it has got to be a step in the right direction. Read Full Review

    The Ravagers is a title I was really wanting to like, but I am worrying that this may not happen. I want to know what's up with Beast Boy, but he only gets a single page with the end issue cliffhanger. Fortunately, what The Ravagers #2 does have going for it is an increasingly likable cast, I just wish I knew if they were the title characters or not. Either way, despite some hiccups, The Ravagers #2 will earn 2.5 out of 5 stars for a likable cast and the promise of something more. Read Full Review
