    The Batman Universe - Jim Remolde Dec 30, 2016

    This was a satisfactory ending to this first story arc of Titans. We get the action of the Titans fight with Kadabra as well as character development of Wally. It is interesting that the next threat to face the Titans may be the most memorable villain ever to be seen in Teen Titans comics, that being Deathstroke, the Terminator. I am looking forward to this next arc and I would like to see more character development of the other Titans as well in addition to seeing the budding romance of Wally and Linda. Read Full Review

    The issue's cliffhanger definitely will be of interest to longtime Titans fans. As fun as it's been seeing the gang back together, this next arc should help deliver the classic Titans action to make the monthly wait between issues all the more unbearable. Read Full Review

    I can finally say that I'm a fan of Titans. It took a while, and I didn't think this day would come, but Titans #5 and #6 have won my favor. The character work, action, and plot finally feel natural and honest, while the set-up for future plots has my incredibly giddy! If you dropped Titans, it might be beneficial to give it a second shot, because I, for one, am glad I was forced to stick with it! Read Full Review

    Titans definitely does a lot right here, though I'll still contend that the opening arc could have been tightened up to four issues or so and been a bit more effective. I liked what Abnett has done here overall, being familiar with his style of storytelling, but it just has a sense of writing for trade length to it that's frustrating. On the flip side, we got six issues of great artwork and kinetic energy out of Booth and Rapmund that was simple a delight to take in as it took me back to the 90's while feeling fresh and new. The book is ready and primed to move forward in new and familiar ways at this stage and I'm hopeful for more reveals about the truth behind the DCU that have been teased since Rebirth sooner than later.

    Comicsverse - Aaron Berke Dec 28, 2016

    With always-engaging art by Booth, and a storyline by Abnett that's come full circle, this a satisfying installment of TITANS. While the arc has been on the one-dimensional side, it's allowed for a solitary focus on Wally West that's necessary, considering his absence in the NEW 52. And now the stage has been set for future arcs that can dive into the other Titans. Meanwhile, intriguing new information has been planted heading towards the inevitable DC / Watchmen showdown. A surprise appearance of a fan-favorite DC character at the very end of the issue also provides an indication of where the story might be going, and another possible connection to Watchmen. Overall, TITANS #6 is a satisfying conclusion to "The Return of Wally West," and a hopeful indicator of even better storylines to come. Read Full Review

    This story arc wraps up the Kadabra story with compelling revelations you'll be talking about with friends. While the resolution is a bit hokey it's a satisfying one that's all about the bond we share with friends and lovers. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Dec 29, 2016

    Titans #6 was a strong ending to "The Return of Wally West" arc. Dan Abnett successfully brought Wally back in a prominent way and pushed the character to accept his new life with the Titans. This story also helped to elevate Kadabra as a credible threat and Lilith as a powerful member of the team. With the appearance of Deathstroke at the end there is plenty for old and new Titans fans to be excited from this series. Read Full Review

    Titans #6 has its flaws, but if you like the characters enough, youll like this issue. The writing needs a little work, but Dan Abnett does a good enough job to keep fans interested. The art is a highlight that should wow you as you flip through the pages. Titans is the book for people who love Wally West and want to celebrate his return. Read Full Review
