    Overall, this is a great start for the Titans. I really hope this doesn't lose steam or spend most of its time re-hashing old plot lines but putting the original New Teen Titans back together is definitely something that could breed success. I'm a fan of these characters, and I hope they remain at the heart of this series and Winick explores these former sidekicks taking on bigger, real world problems. Frankly, I'm sick of DC's Crisis nonsense and I want this series to steer clear of that, much like Green Lantern does at the moment, remaining whole-heartedly focused on what's happening with these characters and the problems they face.

    Anyway, if I haven't convinced you to pick up this book on the art alone, give it a shot regardless. This is a good debut book that keeps the estranging of new readers to a minimum, and it's a lot of fun to boot. This is how Marvel should have done Young X-Men #1… but anyway… Read Full Review

    Proclamation: Nice "Summer Blockbuster" style start. I hope it turns out X2 (X-Men United) good, not X3 (Final Stand) horrible. Read Full Review

    Who wants to take a bet that the most innovative story will probably involve Kory's sex life? Churchill takes full advantage of the cheesecake factor in her sequence this issue, but he does give time to beefcake as well. Things seem a bit empty with hardly any established supporting characters making an appearance. This isn't the Junior Justice League anymore. So what is it? That's Winicks task, but he usually throws up his hands and breaks up the team before we find out. Read Full Review

    Are you a fan of the Wolfman/Perez New Teen Titans line-up? Then you will probably kick yourself for not trying this book out. Otherwise you may want to wait and see where things go from here. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Apr 9, 2008

    Despite some minor flaws or nitpicking, it's an average read. I don't have much affinity for any of the characters in a team setting and don't intend on sticking around for the remainder of this Trigon story, but that's more a personal preference and not a direct indicator of the quality of the book.

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Apr 13, 2008

    Titans #1 was a mediocre read. Winick did absolutely nothing on this issue that would give me any reason to buy the next issue or get me to recommend this title to anyone else. I am going to stick with this title only because I absolutely love these characters. So, I'd only recommend Titans #1 to readers who are long time fans of this classic line-up of the Teen Titans. For everyone else, I'd suggest you spend your hard earned money on some of the more demiurgic, original and creative reads currently on the market. Read Full Review
