    As in the earlier issues, Wally West remains at the core of the story, and has a meeting with Linda Park in this one, in which he tries to connect with her, without terrorizing her. Its a very well written conversation, with a deadly kicker at the end. Read Full Review

    Right now my biggest gripe with the title is its frequency. With so many prominent Rebirth titles getting the bi-weekly treatment, waiting a month seems way too long. First world comic book reader problems for sure. Read Full Review

    Titans is shaping up to be one of the tent-pole titles of the Rebirth storyline. The Titans seem to be at the centre of events with their forgotten history holding tantalizing hints of the true DC Universe timeline. Read Full Review

    Still, as DC titles currently stand, this is one of the best and certainly worth looking at. Now let's look forward to the next issue! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 28, 2016

    While I can't say that this issue has a lot of action or even moves the story in a direction that will unveil all the secrets that the Rebirth Special teased us with, what it did was drop us some tiny nuggets to keep us hungry for more about the future of the DC Universe, while looking great all the way through.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 29, 2016

    Titans is still holding back on some of the key reveals that will cement whether this is worth following or not but it's doing it in a way that keeps it fun and engaging. Abnett's got the characters fairly well and I like that we get a good bit of downtime that helps to showcase that more. While I don't expect it for a bit considering what the characters are dealing with, I really want an issue where they all just hang out and catch up with everything. There are some good smaller moments here, such as Roy and Donna and some curiosity with the two pages we get from Bumblebee, but the big scene stealer continues to be Brett Booth's artwork. Great stuff all around with him and the team in making this feel so much more energetic than a lot of other books on the market. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Allen Thomas Sep 28, 2016

    Titans is a series I had higher hopes for because the characters involved, but it isnt doing much for me. I wish there was more emphasis on how the characters connect and what it means for them to be back together. I also want the women to have a more prominent role outside of common gender conceptions. Titans teeters in the precipice of getting it right, but it doesnt quite take the plunge. I enjoyed the nods to bigger elements, but overall the series has not been for me. Read Full Review

    Titans is a comic that has a decent script and interesting hook by Dan Abnett, but is hampered down by its weak art and lackadaisical villain. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Sep 28, 2016

    This is a fun book and I do recommend picking it up. Since there is no dedicated Rebirth series with the main story, this series shouldn’t be missed as it will probably be the one to deliver a lot of the answer to questions many of us have been asking about with Rebith. Read Full Review

    While the story doesn't really move ahead, these Titans continued to be developed as characters. The arc is just getting rolling for this team of forgotten former side kicks. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Oct 1, 2016

    It's really tough when a title that I want to read, featuring a writer I enjoy and characters that I'm drawn to, has such a disconnect between scripting and art. Worse still, Booth's Titans often look to be 14 or 15 years old, thanks to his elongated necks and large heads, which undermines the expectation that they're young adults trying to rebuild their heroic lives. In short, Titans #3 is a story that I want to read, presented in a manner that I do not want any part of. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Sep 29, 2016

    When it comes down to it, I feel as though Titans is suffering from an identity crisis. It doesn't know who or what it is. There is no sense of direction or understanding. Titans just is" and not in a good way. At times it's an action book, other times it's a campy hero fest, and then there are times where it's a serious drama. It's fine for a story to encompass all of these elements, but it needs to be one thing, and then contain those other elements. Joss Whedon is a master at doing this" Dan Abnett, not so much. Not here anyway. I'm not giving up on Titans, but it needs to find itself before it ever expects it's audience to. Read Full Review

    This will be a tough sell for anyone looking for a story that offers anything better than a superhero slugfest. The characters do a lot of talking, but to not much gain. Read Full Review
