The Titans are back, united against a common foe...aren't they? All seems lost when Tim Drake wakes, out of uniform and seemingly out of time. Surely he was just fighting alongside Nightwing, Superboy, Starfire, Beast Boy, and Donna Troy? But where is Raven and what links her to the Fearsome Five? A blood sacrifice is coming that will change the world forever.

    Meyer delivers some great art in the issue. The action is visually dynamic and beautifully detailed. The character designs are great and the art gives a great sense of the tone of the story. Read Full Review

    A solid start to this latest Titans arc, Cavan Scott has laid a set of foundations which has certainly left me wanting more. Can't wait for issue #2. Read Full Review

    Bloodpact gets off to a solid start rekindling the unexpected fun of Titans United. If the rest of this six-issue mini-series is this entertaining, DC will have another media tie-in title worth following. Read Full Review

    Titans United: Bloodpact #1 Was fun, didn't take itself too seriously, and was very easy on the eyes. What more could you want from a comic? I'm excited to be reviewing this series, so please keep an eye out each month, and we'll enjoy Titans Together (see what I did there? Their catch phrase? it's Like if I said Avengers Asse… Read Full Review

    This book is fine, but it hasn't really found its footing yet to make us invest in its characters. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Sep 20, 2022

    Titans United: Bloodpact #1 is a standard, vanilla, standard Titans adventure with magic, battles, and a parallel Earth twist. The technical execution in the writing is solid, and the art is great, but the story isn't terribly original and lacks an intriguing hook. Read Full Review

    Lucas Meyer's art ties it all together, with some interesting aesthetic flourishes once the aforementioned Brother Blood enters the fray. Read Full Review

    While this first issue was a lot of fun to look at I'm really curious to see where the story will go on from here. I don't want to spoil the ending but there are a lot of implications and ideas that this story could use for its next issues and also way more character development that could really drive this story home. If the comic decided to keep up with the energy of the first issue then I'm honestly here for it, as long as the writing doesn't crowd the page then I'm pretty happy checking out these insane displays of might every month or so.Score: 6.5/10 Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Sep 21, 2022

    With a series like this being conceived of and written as only six issues, its always a bit strange judging just the opening chapter. The fact is that the series IS being presented in six parts as opposed to a single graphic novel format, so individual chapters like this DO count. Its really difficult to get into a story that launches straight into a battle like this without much in the way of formal introduction. The mystery at the beginning and end speaks to a bit more mystery than a 20-page slugfest, so it will be interesting to see how things progress in the second issue. Read Full Review

    GWW - Brian Villar Sep 21, 2022

    Titans United: Bloodpact is disappointing, given the creative team involved. Everything about it feels rushed and pieced together to meet a missed deadline. The issue has some good, like the art and character banter, but those are muddled and hidden. Overall, it is not good; hopefully, future issues can be saved. Read Full Review

    Starting with a Tim Drake I actually recognize, a mystery develops and we go back in time to a battle between the Titans and the Five. Then Blood shows up with his mother and a ritual is invoked. Raven is mysteriously missing from the group and we are introduced to a world where Raven rules. Pretty cool. I'm excited to see where this goes.

    I decided to give this a try after reading the previous Titans United series, even though I wasn't the biggest fan of it. As far as Bloodpact goes, this very much reminds me of the first series, in that overall story is the best part of it, if that makes sense. What I mean is that the writing is not the best and the art is solid, but the main selling point for me is the fact that the story, seemingly an alternate universe/timeline in this case, intrigues me. All I can hope is that this ends up being better than its predecessor.
