Then, in a tie-in to the road to "Drowned Earth," the Titans get a visit from an old teammate when Atlantean mage Tempest guest-stars in the ish. What's got Garth's fishnets in a twist? He's there to help the new Titans lineup take on a major oceanic threat, whose attack comes straight out of the pages of Justice League and Aquaman. Guess you could say that prelude "spills over" into TITANS this month.

    However Titans #28 is a good read. I enjoyed the entire story from Donna's point of view and it seems that with the next issue her leadership ability will be tested. While battling the alien threat, it seems that their leader emerges and the Titans make a retreat! As the attempt to boom tube away the coordinates get scrambled sending them to an unknown place! The next issue should be a real baptism of fire for Donna Troy! Read Full Review

    Though it features a somewhat simple plot, TITANS #28 makes up for this with fantastic characterization and simple fun. This is a must-read story for any DC fan, whether or not you have subscribed to the "Drowned Earth" event. Read Full Review

    The new generation of Titans got off to a rocky start, but the book is progressively getting better with each issue. Read Full Review

    This is a fast paced chapter, but I dont mind that at all. It helps the build for Drowned Earth. Between this and the most recent issues of Justice League and Aquaman, there seems to be a very good crossover getting launched here. Read Full Review

    All in all, this book was fun and it had a lot of great moments. I can't wait to see how the Titans continue to fight throughout this event. Read Full Review

    Titans #28 is an in-between issue. Here, Abnett successfully gets Titans readers up-to-speed with some of the events of “Drowned Earth” while advancing the existing team dynamic and story. While I dislike most cross-overs this one felt important in the scheme of the Titans moving forward. Still, Donna is left with unresolved emotional baggage and the team still doesn't know about Roy or Dick. I'm looking forward to seeing the team wrestle with the tragedy, with its potential to build or bust. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Andy Hall Oct 24, 2018

    Honestly, this title has been a pass for me, mainly because it had this down in the dumps feeling for so long. It also shed characters that I was interested in because I hadn't seen them for a long time, mainly because it didn't seem to know what to do with them. This issue was a needed relief from that. If Abnett and Henry can keep this up, it might make me add this book back to my pull list. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Daniel Cheeseman Oct 25, 2018

    Titans #28 does a lot of things, all at once. It's a sci-fi action romp, it gives Donna room to grow, it offers the team a chance to heal, and there's a cheesy message in there about not living in the past. After a gruelling amount of misery and uncertainty for the Titans, it seems Abnett's path for them is now becoming clear. The old team is dead (mostly); we no longer have the comfort of old friends. However, if this fresh, disparate team can come together and persevere, their triumphs might be considered all the greater. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Tobey Parfitt Oct 26, 2018

    It always annoys me when a book you are reading is part of a crossover event that you had no interest in reading in the first place. Yet here we have just that. The 'Drowned Earth' event has no interest for me, even after reading this. It starts off with lots of monologue from Donna. She reiterates recent events as they fight through the ship.

    Though really well presented, you can skip this issue if the Drowned Earth story arc isnt your cuppa. Read Full Review

    While this issue didn't stand out in particular, it'll definitely be required reading for those interested in "Drowned Earth". Read Full Review

    Taking a break from its own plots to tie into Drowned Earth, Titans #28 feels like it's drowning in subplots. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Oct 24, 2018

    Titans takes us on another tie-in issue that doesn't move the story along for this book at all and only slightly gives Donna Troy more character moments. The rest of the team is completely shelved for this issue to the point that one of them is literally taken away with no explanation. This book is one long fight scene that isn't even that eventful. Thank God that the art in this issue is great or this would be a monumentally low score which is saying something considering where it is now. Read Full Review
