    Titans does what Titans does best here with the main creative team in full force and it works well. It's not what I'm looking for in a big way in a lot of books and I'll easily admit that this series tickles a kind of particular nostalgia fetish that I don't indulge in often. But what they're doing here is just a hell of a lot of fun even if it's pretty compressed by working through the story amid all the action as opposed to it building to a burst of action.

    Theres an odd moment midway through that Abnett doesnt pay off, but the tease for next issue suggests it will be addressed next issue. This ended the Troia arc on an encouraging note with the full Titans together. With next issues big clash, the Titans will need all the help they can get. Read Full Review

    Titans #18 was a good read and I'm looking forward to the next issue. Abnett does a great job of telling a story of a dark and very possible future where the Titans are either broken, dead, or alone. The team realizes that the only way for Troia's vision to not come true is to stay together"let's hope they can do that. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Dec 15, 2017

    While this issue doesnt really give all the answers and explanations one would have expected from this arc, it was still a fun read. Dan Abnetts Titans are a truly endearing team, and Booth, Rapmund, and Dalhouse make up a strong art team for the visual side. The issue successfully brings a dramatic finale in the battle against Troia, and thats what it really needed to do. I recommend this one; check it out. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - John Hagmann Dec 13, 2017

    All told, Titans #18 is highly enjoyable. It boasts some memorable moments, the return and restoration of teammates, and the swift defeat of villains. It's a solidif not less-than-fulfilling conclusion to the Donna Troy-centric story. It also boasts exquisite art, color, and settings. I'm looking forward to seeing what comes next in this series. I would not be surprised if Titans #18 is better in hindsight because of what it sets up in future issues. Read Full Review

    The final chapter of The Rise of Troia is a serviceable conclusion but not a particularly exciting one. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Travis Meidell Dec 14, 2017

    I felt like last month's issue set my expectations high for this conclusion, and while I enjoyed the message Dan Abnett was writing about, the whole ending moved way too fast. I won't say it was a swing and miss, but I do feel a bit disappointed. The good news is, it looks like we're set up for a clean start next month to dive into some brand new directions.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Dec 13, 2017

    There isn't much going on in this issue except for a big ass fight, which we've already gotten previously and by the end nothing is really explained at all...... it just is.  Thankfully though, the art was incredible this issue as it always is, but at the end of the day that isn't much takeaway from this book.

    A conclusion to the big Troia arc delivers a lot of action, but very little substance as Donna Troy goes up against her evil self. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Dec 16, 2017

    Titans #18 puts the final nail in the disappointing story arc that "The World Stops" ended up being. After starting out as a story about a HIVE spy within the Titans for some reason that storyline was completely forgotten for an even less coherent story involving the future version of Donna Troy, Troia, coming to kill the team. The way Dan Abnett executed Troia's story left a lot to be desired. So much so that the only saving grace for Titans #18 was the strong artwork from Brett Booth. Read Full Review
