    Titans #2 is a great example of when something isnt broken, dont try to fix it. This great issue is looking like the beginning of a great run on this team, and you should be getting in on it now whether you had previously read Titans or not. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Jun 20, 2023

    Titans #2 opens with a flashback to the younger version of these characters as they prepare to take on Brother Blood, this sequence is great because we get to see Dick as Robin, Donna in her classic red Wonder Girl attire as well as Garth in his original Aqualad look. It immediately recalls the Wolfman/ Perez run of New Teen Titans that catapulted this group of characters to the top of the comic industry in the '80's. The splash page is also an homage to the cover of New Teen Titans #1. These touches are additional elements that build on the accurate character beats. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jun 20, 2023

    Tom Taylor and Nicola Scott utilize the ending of the first issue to develop multiple storylines and character arcs in Titans #2. The experience and relationships shine throughout this issue. It was all done in a seamless manner that further emphasized why the Titans are the premiere superhero team in the Dawn of DC direction. This drives home why Titans is a must-have series for DC Comics fans. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Aaron Ray Jr. Jun 20, 2023

    The new Titans series has solid illustration, but often problematic plot choices. On the positive side, it utilizes all of the Titans and they feel like they each contribute something to the plot and overall atmosphere. On the negative side, there is an abundance of sketchy history Taylor wants us to be aware of, but not look too deep into. In fact, it has such a loose handle on lore that it copies, rehashes, or contradicts a lot of the references it tries to invoke. Overall, I don't want to penalize the book too badly, but leaning on shaky foundations can lead to confusion. Luckily, the story is still massively entertaining, and has a lot of potential to outdo the story threads it desperately wants to succeed. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Jun 20, 2023

    Titans #2 is a boring sophomore issue that dispels the mystery from issue #1 almost immediately and spends most of the issue, except for one action scene, with characters standing around and talking. The art looks pretty, and the story technically moves forward, but the net result is utterly forgettable. Read Full Review
