    Mark Waid and Emanuela Lupacchino take what they established in the first issue and improve on it in every way with World's Finest: Teen Titans #2. The focus is given to Donna Troy, Garth, Roy Harper, and Karen Beecher. In the process we see how Waid and Lupacchino continued to modernize the original Teen Titans adventures while maintaining what makes this team so beloved. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Aug 8, 2023

    World's Finest: Teen Titans #2 improves on the first issue by bringing the team together to find a missing girl in a spooky house. Instead of crafting the Titans version of a Scooby Doo adventure, Waid delivers a mature, emotionally resonant plot. Waid is doing something unique with this title, don't sleep on it.

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore Aug 10, 2023

    Regardless of the reason, Waid and Lupacchino are delivering a book that feels relevant to today and also revelatory about the characters in it, which is not typically something you get from a series set in the past. Whether its Donna Troy's naivet, Garth's reluctance to let loose, or Robin's struggles with leadership, this book is giving a really insightful peek into the past of the Titans, whenever that is.

    ComicsOnline - Tony Rhea Aug 1, 2023

    ComicsOnline recommends this issue to fans of the Teen Titans, but especially to those fans who have young teens in their lives. Stories like this, relating normal teenagers and their issues to these larger-than-life heroes, are a great way of sparking important conversations that may be awkward and difficult but are altogether important ones to be able to have.

    Dark Knight News - Bryant Lucas Aug 10, 2023

    World's Finest: Teen Titans #2 feels different from any teenage superhero story currently on the market. Often adolescent superhero tales are full of angst and drama, setting a moody tone. Waid and Lupacchino take a different approach; while there's still relationship drama, the series lacks all the normal teen angst. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Olly MacNamee Aug 9, 2023

    ‘World's Finest: Teen Titans' #2′ is a rather uninspiring issue after it's zippy debut. Wonder Girl and Aqualad are the characters who are the main focus for this issue, along withe mystery of a strange and haunted house. Certainly an issue that seems to favour character development over story. And even that's minimal. Read Full Review

    First issue was great, this issue was better. While it does appear this might be sort of episodic story-telling in nature, it leaves several subplots that will almost certainly play out into bigger issues later on. Really enjoy that there are still people who use foreshadowing and subplots in stories. Feels almost like a simple but forgotten art.

    Also I will say I laughed a lot at this issue, between the Speedy and Robin banter and Donna just going full... Donna? I loved so many moments of this book. A great story augmented by moments of laughter and 'the warm and fuzzies'.

    I’m not sure if this standalone issue represents the format this series is going to take, but if so I don’t mind at all! I like the idea of giving each or a couple of the Teen Titans time to shine in stories that can be enjoyed in a single sitting. Waid manages to give each character depth, and it seems that he can do no wrong as of late. Bellaire’s colors really pop in this issue as well.

    After a strong debut issue, Mark Waid and Emanuela Lupacchino deliver another rousing adventure in WORLD’S FINEST TEEN TITANS #2. The creative duo’s knack for modernizing classic characters in modern storylines has been truly impressive so far and in this second issue they also reintroduced more classic characters and added new layers of depth to our main heroes.

    For this issue, the focus shifts to Wonder Girl’s POV for the opening act and we get to see her sheer exuberance for all the human world has to offer that Paradise Island didn’t offer. Aqualad and Bumblebee met up her and Mal Duncan, her “new friend” as she calls him, for a day of fun around Washington, D.C. and we get to see them partaking in some fun festi more

    An episodic issue, with a simple, functional and fun plot. Waid again uses a "script engine" to develop characters, with Lupacchino's narrative flowing slowly and nicely around pages.
