"Who is Troia?" The Titans attempt to regain their balance after their epic clash with Troia-Donna's villainous future self-and look toward a brighter tomorrow. But the Justice League wants answers about Donna Troy's true nature, and they'll get them-even if it means shutting down the Titans for good!

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Jan 10, 2018

    Titans #19 is a perfect jumping on issue for new readers. Dan Abnett walks new readers through most of the series' subplots without being overly-expository. The new art team of Pelletier and Hennessy prove a market improvement over the previous one. Jump on this book now, folks! Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Steven Brown Jan 13, 2018

    Titans #19 was a great read and I can't wait to see the further consequences of the League's intervention. Roy in particular is taking the League's judgment pretty harshly and Abnett leaves us on a cliffhanger involving him. With the rest of the Titans currently disabled, I'm wondering who will be left to give Roy an assist as he's trapped on a roof in an intense shootout. Can't wait to see if Roy Harper gets out of this alive! Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jan 10, 2018

    Ive been a fan of Titans especially when the team sits back and works through personal issues. Grounded looks to be a nice personal story for the Titans, which is where theyre always at their best. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Jake Putnam Jan 15, 2018

    This issue was amazing from beginning to end, the art was amazing and drew the reader in wonderfully but was only a compliment to the storyline, which was incredible it brought the reader in and helped you feel the world in the eyes of these characters.This book needs to be picked up!

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jan 15, 2018

    Titans #19 functions as an excellent follow-up to the arc with Troia. It is emotionally weighty, the drama as palpable, and the art is great. This one gets a recommendation. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - AJ Zender Jan 10, 2018

    While a fractured plotline keeps TITANS #19 from perfection, the stellar art style and potent characterization make this issue one of the best in the series. While sometimes confusing and unfocused, this issue still deserves your attention. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Jan 22, 2018

    Of course the next thing we will be treated to will be a re-forming of the team. DC isnt abandoning the book or the concept. It will be interesting to see how the group comes back together, who returns, and who doesnt. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jan 16, 2018

    I really enjoy issues like this even if I think the Justice League are basically being jerks. Batman in particular considering what he lets the Justice League of America get away with from the first dozen+ issues of that I read. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jan 11, 2018

    Titans #19 is a great start to the latest story arc, "Grounded," for this series. Dan Abnett was able to use his previous story arcs to properly compliment the conflict between the Titans and Justice League. What happens between the members of both teams sets up several interesting character arcs for the series to follow up on moving forward. Having Paul Pelletier draw the issue further helped the story have a consistent look, adding to the tension between the Titans and Justice League. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Michael Adams Jan 10, 2018

    Overall I enjoyed this book, and I look forward to the next issue. With the Titans growing up and listening to those around them, I feel like real change is upon us. I have seen a lot of talking head issues of comics, Bendis is famous for them, and they can be a total bore. When placed in the right hands, they can still hold your attention. You can actually feel for the characters. This issue was a great breather for the audience after the last arc, even if it wasn't for the Titans themselves. Read Full Review

    Frustrating at times but we see the fun loving side of the Titans as well. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Matthew Mahar Jan 12, 2018

    I like where this story is going as its a logical extension of where the team has been since their reunion. There are growing pains like this that were bound to happen as weve seen it all before. Abnett obviously has a longer game planned for these characters, and Im enjoying how the different arcs have remained separate yet blended well and told an overarching story. This feels like the end of the beginning of the story Abnett wants to tell. Im excited for whats to come as Titans has remained one of the most consistent books DC has published the past almost two years, but Im a little worried for Roy Harper, as it looks like the next few issues are going to be very tough on him.

    Titans #19 has solid character moments, but falters from bad timing. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Jason Saba Jan 10, 2018

    These are not the Titans you are looking for. This issue will leave you frustrated and resigned to the fact that the team may never really shed the baggage of the past...or the future. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Daniel Cheeseman Jan 11, 2018

    The decision the Justice League and the Titans come to feels to me like a contrivance for the sake of a future storyline so by extension so is this issue. Abnett and Pelletier haven't wasted an opportunity for some old-fashioned family drama (which has always been a part of Titans and Teen Titans) intercut with a bit of satisfying action but I doubt anyone will be remembering this issue wistfully or re-reading it for fun.

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 15, 2018

    In short, this a comic book that works, mostly, even if it's playing a very familiar tune and even though the visuals don't quite convey the themes that the script intends it to. Titans #19 has a lot going for it, a strong cast, a strong writer, a couple of big mysteries in Wally's powers and Donna's future and it builds on years of Titans history in a way that works, but doesn't quite nail the landing.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jan 10, 2018

    While I didn't hate this issue and even love certain aspects of it, there's just a lot of filler here that doesn't use its time properly to try and fill in any of the blanks about what's going on with our heroes from the previous arc.  The art in this issue is great and I love where it looks like this book is heading, but overall, there wasn't much to this issue, which is disappointing as hell.

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jan 10, 2018

    Overall, this picks up on the very flawed annual and makes the League look like ridiculous heels " and Dick's decision to go along with this and shut down the team, for now, is even more ridiculous. Read Full Review
