    ‘World's Finest: Teen Titans' #1 is a riotous romp of a book. Not only does it make great use of the original Teen Titans colourful Silver Age history, but brings more than an air of the contemporary into play to. A book that fondly homages the past while treading a new path into the future too. Well observed characters with an emphasis on the Titans' interpersonal relationships rather than the usual smackdown dominating the narrative. A great first issue. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jul 11, 2023

    This first issue is heavily focused on establishing the team dynamic and where the characters are in their lives right now, but we do get some fun battles brought to creative life by Emanuela Lupacchino, as well as a creepy cliffhanger. This title might not be giving us a new team, but it's certainly reminding us why the franchise was a hit in the first place. Read Full Review

    World's Finest: Teen Titans #1 is a blast. It's exciting to see Waid have the opportunity to flesh out his ideas beyond the pages of Batman/Superman. Although the issue felt more like an introduction to the characters than anything else, Waid's characterization of these classic characters carries the book. In fact, this might be the best incarnation of the Teen Titans I've read since Geoff Johns's work back in the early 2000s. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Jul 11, 2023

    World's Finest: Teen Titans #1 sets the high bar for the best Titans book on the shelf. Waid creates a team that likes each other and can get the job done but still, butts heads as headstrong sidekicks just coming together should. If you're hungry for a return to Perez/Wolfman-era Titans, this issue gets very close. Read Full Review

    World's Finest: Teen Titans #1 is an exploration of the early days of the team with the fondness and excitement we've come to expect from Mark Waid. It uses those simple, optimistic adventures as a way to explore the character relationships of the young heroes who will eventually grow into the characters we know. Robin takes center stage as we see his first steps into a leadership role and the uncertainty that comes with it. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jul 12, 2023

    World's Finest: Teen Titans #1 is a fun start. But, its focus on social media distracts the readers a bit feeling at odd with “classic” stories of the team. Still, it's entertaining and everyone has a solid take on the team and its varied personalities. Read Full Review
