    Multiversity Comics - Devon Browning Oct 23, 2017

    The art team on this issue is nearly unmatchable, and with Dan Abnett's seamless string of events that tie together all subplots that have been brewing from the beginning of the run, this issue is an absolute must-read. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Oct 18, 2017

    The cover is somewhat misleading as Kid Flash doesnt play a very vital role here. His cameo almost takes away from the main story since it adds so little. Considering there's so many unanswered questions, maybe Abnett could have delayed his arrival until Kid Flash will figure out a way to help Wally West. Titans remains DC's most obvious title in need of a bi-weekly release. The story always flies by and this is our only avenue to see the grown up Teen Titans come together as a fighting superhero family. Read Full Review

    Please, DC, choose an origin for Wonder Girl and carve it in stone. Enough already. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 24, 2017

    Titans is a chaotic book in general and this one boosts that up a few notches, especially when viewed through the other Wally's eyes as he arrives to find Wally dead and everyone in a very pitched fight scene. I like the way the various Titans handle things, the narration we get from Omen about what's coming and how she misunderstood/was tricked into believing a certain point of view, and the emotions that come from several of the events underway. It's a strong book in this regard even while it spends so much of it with fisticuffs between the good guys and bad guys. I do wish for a few issues where things slowed down and we got some good character stuff or at least not quite so much intense action but this is what Titans is about in the here and now. I remain a bit hopeful for some bigger "family" bonding material as more of the Rebirth era gets further along. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Jim Remolde Oct 20, 2017

    I am interested in completing this arc and I am looking for Hawk and Dove to make an appearance. They are the only characters from Titans Hunt that we have not seen show up in this title yet. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Steven Brown Oct 20, 2017

    Overall I love this issue and I hope that Booth gives us more of this great story in the future. Mister Twister and The Key have been villains that have been giving the Titans problems since the beginning of the series, and now combined with Psimon they have become almost unstoppable. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens in the next issue! Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Oct 24, 2017

    Despite pacing issues that end with villains sounding like tapes stuck on repeat, Titans #16 is still a solid comic. The stakes are high, the tension is mostly there, and the art is still good. I can recommend this one still, even if its not as strong as previous issues of the series. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Kasandra Miranda Oct 28, 2017

    Overall I love this series especially the emotions and vulnerability of the Titans, but in this issue, I didnt like how rugged it was and how it went back and forth between the Flash and the fighting of the Titans. It felt unnecessary, and like the Flash scenes could have been put in another issue. I have high hopes for this series, and I hope that they dont disappoint again in future issues Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Oct 18, 2017

    Titans #16 makes a ton of headway concerning plot progression, but there are so many reveals/ "resolves" that it doesn't have a chance to properly deal with any of them. You're ultimately left with these reveals and not much else. For some, this will be more than enough to satisfy you, and " like me " will have you eagerly awaiting next month's issue! For others, you might reach the last page, wish you'd gotten more, and move on to your next book. Either way, the future looks bright for Titans (the book itself, not necessarily the team) if Abnett can maintain a central focus! Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - John Hagmann Oct 19, 2017

    As a standalone issue, Titans #16 lies precariously in the middle of a complicated story. It presents an awkward jumping-in point for those new to this title. However, when taken in context, it is an intriguing and intricate tale woven across issues. And, this one feels important. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Oct 18, 2017

    Titans this issue gives us a fight scene without a lot of substance, even though we had amazing art all the way through and an interesting cliffhanger, this series continues to be a mixed bag of interesting ideas that's spread a little too thin issue to issue.  I still look forward to this arc and the stories that will come from it, but this issue was just a little underwhelming for what we got through the majority of the book.

    In the past, I've praised Titans for being remarkably good with hoe accessible it is to new readers. This issue proves a sad exception to that rule. Read Full Review
