    This Lazarus Contract story started really great in my view. Slade willing to give everything up for his son says a lot about his character while also having Dick lying to the group setting up an interesting story for him and the rest of the Titans. The new Wally finding out that Pre Flashpoint Wally has the same name as him will set things up not only for both Wally but will also set up stories with both of them and Barry. I can not wait for the Teen Titans to join the story to see how both teams work together. Slade is the highlight of the issue being able to be Slade and capture both Wallys and able to make a machine to get information from a Speedster. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - James Portis May 10, 2017

    Now with Lazarus Contract, we have a golden opportunity to break new ground on a story that yes was told in a different universe, but now can be told without creepy statutory rape, and without the needed involvement of plot threads like Brother Blood or Terra in general because her existence has no bearing on this story from what can be seen. So we can have a new continuity with a new retelling of one of the most impactful stories in DC Comics history, and so far it has been being executed excellently. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Steven Brown May 10, 2017

    Titans #11 is a great read! This issue has plenty of action, plenty of emotion, and Deathstroke steals the issue although it's not his title! The issue ends in a cliffhanger with Flash about to make a decision and I can't wait to see what he does! Read Full Review

    The signs are looking good that "The Lazarus Contract" might just be the perfect follow-up to "The Judas Contract." Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Tyler Harris May 13, 2017

    A solid first issue to what is shaping up to be a Rebirth-defining crossover event. Titans provided a good backdrop for Part One, and I have complete faith that next week's Teen Titans is going to take this event to the next level. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Aron Pohara May 10, 2017

    Overall this issue was very enjoyable and a great read. It is great to see Deathstroke torment Titans again and will be interesting to see how this will effect all three of the books going forward. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - William Evans May 10, 2017

    A good start to a fresh take on the popular story. With this group of writers at the helm, there is a potential for this to be a very good crossover, but of course, it's still early. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez May 11, 2017

    Titans #11 kicks off the big "The Lazarus Contract" off on the right note. Dan Abnett, along with story writers Christopher Priest and Benjamin Percy, did a great job using the Titans history with Deathstroke as the core to launch the rest of this story. Now with several plotlines in play there are plenty of fun things for Titans fans to follow moving forward. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea May 10, 2017

    As a first part to this story, this does a fine job in setting up some interesting things, but sacrificing Deathstroke's story in his own book to do it.  With that though, I found something to like with each section of this book, even if I still don't understand the Titans' timeline and who knows about them as kids and who doesn't.  We have excellent art all the way though and a story that gets me excited about what's to come and how it will possibly affect the rest of the DC Universe.   Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams May 10, 2017

    The final pages feature an intriguing twist on the story, taking the Lazarus Contract in a wholly entirely unexpected direction as it moves forwards. As set-ups go, this is a commendable opening issue, and my interest has certainly been piqued about just how this situation is going to play out. Another enjoyable chapter in the ongoing Titans saga then, and the introduction of Deathstroke as an antagonist only sweetens the deal. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 17, 2017

    Titans puts a pretty interesting storyline into play but it's one that I have little investment in, even considering my own reading of the original Judas Contract material ages ago and the enjoyment I get from the characters involved here. I'm not following the other two books and just have no interest in picking them up for this. Abnett puts it all together well here as it introduces all the right things and provides the context needed to launch into the event proper. All while giving Booth and Rapmund plenty to work with as I continue to love the dynamic that Booth works into the layouts and general energy of it. Here's to seeing what's on the other side of this arc and how well Abnett makes it accessible for those of us not falling into the crossover trap. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Paul Mason May 12, 2017

    The story was written by Dan Abnett but plotted with Benjamin Percy which makes sense as it will crossover with Teen Titans. Point is I could really see Percy's influence in the details of the plot. Read Full Review

    Nerd Church Radio - Ariel DuPey May 10, 2017

    This was the first book in the Lazarus Contract, so I feel like the writers wanted us to have a lot of information. There were scenes that would have been more impactful, if less was going on. There was also a lot of build up for this arc, so expectation may have been over the top for the first issue of it. It was still a fun read and I am very excited to continue with the next story in Teen Titans. Some of the most talented artists and writers and coming together for this arc, and once a better flow gets establish, this will be one for the books. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Kent Falkenberg May 11, 2017

    Regardless of their execution, I am enjoying how DC is weaving together the overall Rebirth tapestry through these almost monthly crossovers. Its making the total event feel truly universal, without having to put the entire line on hold. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Nathaniel Belgard May 10, 2017

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald May 11, 2017

    The debut of "The Lazarus Contract" is a hard one to judge because there's so much set-up for the coming issues. In no way is this a bad book but some moments are executed much better than others, while others are just painting by numbers to set the plot up. There's still great potential for this story though, and I'm excited to read the remaining issues. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho May 14, 2017

    Titans #11 kicks off the mini-crossover, and it does a fine job of keeping you interested and wondering where things will be heading next week. Percy and Abnett are professionals and know how to craft a good crossover. The art steals the show here, though. Brett Booths pencils mixed with the wonderful color scheme really sell this issue. If youre hungry for an old school Teen Titans event, The Lazarus contract will be right up your alley. Read Full Review
