    The Batman Universe - Jim Remolde Oct 28, 2016

    This was a very good issue. It did follow the usual trope of splitting up the team but I think it was done here in good measure. Kadabra strengthened his team while the separation of the Titans actually weakened them and allowed the puppets to win. I did think it was interesting what matchups that were created. The characters were mixed up in that the counterparts did not face off with each other except for Kid Flash and Flash themselves and Flash easily beat his counterpart while the others were all taken down. The cliffhanger here makes me want to pick up the next issue and as this issue is released monthly I will have to wait a whole month to see how this ends. Read Full Review

    411Mania - Rob Bonnette Nov 10, 2016

    Because this is issue four in a story arc you'll need to read the previous ones to know what's going on here, and I recommend just that. This book has been a good one so far and issue four continues that. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Rick Austin Nov 3, 2016

    Whatever it is, it's a slight step down. Don't get me wrong though, this is still one of the better titles from DC out there. If you're after a solid read with a pre-New52 vibe then Titans #4 is definitely a must. Read Full Review

    Titans #4 was a great read, especially if you're a fan of the rivalry between Kadabra and The Flash. I have a few comics from the 90s with The Flash and Kadabra fighting it out so this book had a brief moment of nostalgia for me. I'm looking forward to finding out Kadabra's endgame! Definitely check out Titans #4! Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 29, 2016

    Titans still feels a bit drawn out in terms of story, especially since we've got a Flash running around here, and I'm feeling like the book really needs to start delivering on something concrete soon. Right now, it's the characters and the artwork that's keeping me around. I know these characters can be so much and the designs and action is top-notch, but I really want to feel invested in this and to have some time without action to dig into more character material. And, well, something with what the larger story is involving Wally and all the changes that have been going on with Rebirth and the like. This is a solid issue and one that's both a quick read and one you can dig into if you engage with the fantastic artwork. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Eric Lee Oct 28, 2016

    This issue of Titans kicks the main plotinto overdrive, leading a thrilling, edge-of-your-seat cliffhanger. However, the awkwardly transparent dialogue and Booth's art preventsTitansfrom being a true must-read comic. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 26, 2016

    Another good installment of one of the better fight comics on the stands. Kadabra goes full twirling-mustache-villain and sets up Flash for possibly a life changing (and maybe even death) experience. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Oct 30, 2016

    Titans #4 was another solid entry in what is quietly one of DC's most enjoyable comic books. Dan Abnett has done an excellent job with following up on Wally West's return to the DC Universe and bringing back a classic Flash villain in the process. In the process Abnett has been able to reestablish the family dynamic that has always made the Titans such a unique superhero team within the DC Universe. The addition of Brett Booth's energetic artwork makes Titans #4 a must have for Teen Titans and Flash fans. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Oct 26, 2016

    While I've loved this series so far, I have to say that this issue was a bit of a disappointment with its character interactions and with the lack of progression we've been getting in the story.  Even the big dilemma that our heroes are put in seems like such a rehash of something that we'd see fifty years ago, but I did love the art and thankfully that never seems to disappoint.   Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ian B Oct 26, 2016

    Overall, I thought the issue was good, but it certainly had several flaws, namely in the artwork and focus on Kadabra constantly spouting nothing but exposition at Linda. Additionally, Linda herself barely even matters to the story, contributing absolutely nothing to the overall plot other than giving someone for Kadabra to monologue at. The plot for Wally's defeat was set up with the other Titans as the pawns, so having Linda there as well, especially when she barely says a word the entire issue, just seems like overdoing it. Ultimately, while I did enjoy the issue for what it was, I really hope that future issues tighten up the storytelling and artwork a bit, because there's a lot of good here, but it's unfortunately covered by several missteps.

    It's not great, but Titans #4is good enough to deserve some of your time. Its significance in the larger continuity certainly helps, but it has its own entertaining plot that will entertain you in the short term. There are some distracting artistic elements, but Booth, Rapmund, and Dalhouse please me more than they don't, especially when crafting dynamic action sequences. All-in-all, Titans #4 is a fun read with some significant ties to the larger DC universe. Nothing more, nothing less. Read Full Review
