    Overall I loved reading Titans #26. It was a good read, and judging be the ending Abnett is going to give us something epic in the future issues. The return of the Blood Cult seems to be actually happening, and the source wall energy seems to be at the center of it all. Hopefully next issue we'll see more of the Blood Cult, and what exactly their true plans are. Read Full Review

    TITANS #26 is a high intensity, action-packed story that does a fantastic job delving into the doubts and fears of its lead team. While writer Dan Abnett doesn't push his explorations quite far enough, the characterization within is still some of the best in comics! Read Full Review

    Still, this is good enough that I can afford to be picky. And while I may enjoy the Teen Titans book more, I am still fully engaged in this one. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - John Hagmann Sep 27, 2018

    Titans #26 felt important in a number of ways. First, it increased the tension between characters on the team – particularly, Ben and Miss Martian. Next, it increased the conflict between the Titans and the Blood Cult, who proved more of a threat than ever before. Itsseemingly callous depiction of Donna added intrigue while a mysterious Miss Martian cast doubt on her loyalties. Abnett's narrative and Peeples' art were well matched in this enjoyable issue.

    Titans is turning the corner to becoming a strong read with each passing issue. Theres a real sense that Abnett is close to making the book special, but understanding its a slower process than usual. Im anticipating this title more and more now especially since its on the bi-weekly schedule. Abnett can take his time building up stories without them feeling too prolonged. Thats helping this new era of Titans immensely in becoming a title to watch in the final months of 2018. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - B.K. Derbidge Oct 6, 2018

    The emergent Source-Energy threat has become VERY serious, which is a very welcome thing for Titans fans. The momentum has now made this title worth the bi-monthly cost and I cant wait to see whats around the corner! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Oct 1, 2018

    Titans #26 shows that the current mission statement for the team has legs. Dan Abnett did a very good job creating greater interest around what the Blood Cult are using the chaos created by the Source Wall for. In the process Abnett using the conflict the Titans resolved to show how strong of a team they are while developing several character sub-plots. As long as we can get more issues like Titans #26 this series could start rising to become one of DC Comics better ongoings. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Daniel Cheeseman Sep 27, 2018

    Another fun chapter of Titans, issue #26 isn't surprising or ground-breaking but thanks to clever plot devices, multiple story threads, exciting action and plenty of heart, it makes for an entertaining ride. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dylan Surmonte Sep 26, 2018

    Titans (2018-) #26 continues to follow the teenage team of young heroes as they progress through their current mission while also progressing as individuals and novice superheroes. A wonderful story including great words by Abnett, the only thing that would make this comic better would be more artistic execution from Peeples. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Sep 26, 2018

    For an issue that is pretty much a long fight sequence, this issue isn't horrible. We get some character development throughout the issue and even though the biggest twist is one that we've seen dozens of times over the years, it's not the worst development in the world. Overall the issue is fine. It's good. But it's not great. Read Full Review

    The reintroduction of the Blood Cult provides for a thrilling issue of Titans that almost has Dick, Donna, and company straddling the line of being in a horror tale. Read Full Review

    The book as a whole has a lot of mood whiplash, and the team dynamic isn't strong enough to make up for it. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Paul Shanly Sep 28, 2018

    I like a lot of elements of this book but it still seems to be floundering. Change might be coming though. It still remains to be seen how the series is going to be handing the new status quo that Nightwing is going to be going through over the next few months. Read Full Review

    I don't think I took issue with anything in this book. I like where all of this is going.

    I feel like I've been giving Dan Abnett one more chance on Titans since Titans Hunt concluded and the regular Titans series began. It was a series in search of a reason for being other than nostalgia and shared history.

    As a fan I got what I wanted when we got a series about the original Teen Titans (including, wonderfully, Lilith and even some Gnarrk) all grown up, but it turns out to have been less interesting than similar attempts by Devin Grayson--who handled this team that was only ever together as adults because they had been as teens best of all who tried it--and Judd Winick who managed to make things a lot more interesting than Abnett has so far.

    (Incidentally, I'm looking forward to the upcoming collection o more

    Last few issues kinda looked like Dan Abnett was stumbling in the dark with the story. Not really knowing where to go with it.

    This issue, on the other hand, seemed like things are finally on the right track.
    That, paired with some nice art, made for a pretty good issue of The Titans.
