Newly awakened metahuman Ionbound suffers a fateful transformation that rocks the Titans team to their core. If they can't save these Source Wall victims, what good is their latest mission? But does this development hold the key to helping them? Or is it a harbinger of more death and destruction to come? That's a lot of questions to answer; good thing there are two issues this month to cover all that ground!

    TITANS #27 gives a fantastic look at the many faces of grief and tragedy as the team faces the loss of their leader. While the main crisis of the story could be better fleshed out, the varied look at the different characters and the brilliant and atmospheric art by Brent Peeples makes this one of the best issues in the series to date.

    The Brazen Bull - Dylan Surmonte Oct 10, 2018

    Titans (2016-) #27 is a comic that works for new readers because of all the setup for future stories stup, as well as the re-introductions and in-depth looks into each character's mindset and attitude when faced with hardship and adversity. The concept of loss and friendship is strong through and through, and I think the success of this issue will continue to drive this series forward in the weeks and months to come. Read Full Review

    Overall I thought Titans #27 was a good read. The issue was emotional as the team is still trying to struggle with the thought that Nightwing could be gone for good. I enjoyed the artwork by Brent Peeples as he did a great job showing how these heroes cope with the loss of one of their own. I'm looking forward to reading the next issue as now the question is what will happen to the Titans and their mission? Read Full Review

    Dan Abnett is able to craft an incredibly poignant issue to deal with the traumas involved with these superhero tales that we often times don't get to see. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - John Hagmann Oct 11, 2018

    In conclusion, Titans #27 was an incredibly poignant issue. Two characters loomed large over the team without being present. Two iconic characters lie dead or gravely injured. Consequently, Donna Troy – one of the original Teen Titans – struggled to cope. And yet, this new team of Titans persevered. Abnett moved the story forward in compelling ways while paying homage to the past. Those with knowledge of Teen Titans lore will appreciate the sentiments. However, losing so many of the original team proved more emotionally draining than anticipated. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Oct 13, 2018

    Titans #27 was one of the strongest issues to date for this series. Dan Abnett did a great job using recent events surrounding Nightwing and Roy Harper's fates to deliver solid character work for this incarnation of the Titans. All the character work done in Titans #27 will make future issues even stronger, something that should be exciting for fans of this series. Read Full Review

    Wally West was central to this title when it was launched. Roy Harper and Wonder Girl have a long history, with some teenage romance in their past. To just skate over that quickly, or ignore it completely, is a shameful disservice to those characters. Read Full Review

    Not a lot of action, but plenty of life. Hopefully, a small detour leading to a return to the action-filled previous storylines. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Oct 10, 2018

    When a book relies so heavily on the reader being familiar with the other books in the universe, the book has failed in my opinion. I can understand that people like having a connected universe but this is basically a bonus read for people who read other books rather than continuing the story that this book's audience has become invested in. This is comics at their worse and that deserves a very specific score that our regular readers will know the significance of. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Daniel Cheeseman Oct 10, 2018

    Although it's important for getting the characters caught up with events happening in the wider DC Universe, Titans #27 is not an entertaining issue you'll be revisiting for pleasure. This melancholy break will read better when collected with the rest of the series but will still feel forced and lacking in the emotional impact it could have had. Read Full Review

    Titans #27 is an issue drowned in tragedy in which almost nothing connects with the reader, due to the poor work done with these characters previously. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Paul Shanly Oct 12, 2018

    Team books are all about how the characters interact with one another, and with a team with as much history as the Titans, I want the book to take the time to tell smaller stories like this. I also want the book to just be better then whats presented here. Read Full Review
