Comic Covers reviewed Teen Titans: Special #1 Jun 27, 2018
9.0

While I wasn't expecting Adam Glass to take this kind of direction with the Teen Titans, I can say that I was definitely surprised! I enjoyed how each character was portrayed in this book, even if it may have seemed out of character at some moments. Each story got me more invested, and now I cannot wait to see what the team will be like once they come together! Consider me onboard.

For Wally West fans, this special is a must read. For Speed Buggy on the other hand, I love how Lobdell integrated this character into the DC Universe, and almost made me wish that he was actually part of the Flash Family. Overall, a great issue!

There are generally two types of silly comics - those that are just silly, and those who embrace their silliness and use it to elevate themselves to new heights. Aquaman paired with Jabberjaw is a match made in heaven - you can't help but enjoy it and its goofiness.
Most definitely a great, unexpected team-up, I hope Arthur and Neptunes will cross paths sometime in the future!

DC/Hanna-Barbera: Aquaman/Jabberjaw Special #1

Super Sons, since the very beginning of their comic run, were able to realistically portray two main characters, giving them necessary depth and personalities - something you rarely see with young protagonists, unfortunately. That's one of the very reasons I've enjoyed reading about them so much.
Their crossover with Dynomutt pushes the boundaries of depth and complexity forward. Way forward. more

The emotional fallout from the last issue hits the reader hard, letting us feel just how the Rangers are coping with their loss. This issue also thrives in developing and humanizing Drakkon, seeing bits of the good man he once was in some interesting interactions. Overall, another excellent issue that makes me all the more excited for the next part of the story.

I have been excited about this book since Marvel announced it and put Saldin Ahmed as a writer. Exiles is a fun book that feels like the liberated team book from Marvel. The best thing about this type of story is that we can go anywhere at any time and it presents a real playground for a writer and this book has a very strong writer. Ahmed now has both Black Bolt and Abbott under his belt and he s more

DAMAGE,
is an overall acceptable story. It does suffer from many genre cliches (a jealous ex-partner, the obvious, villainous government amidst others) and an undeniable familiarity with THE HULK so while I am hopeful for The New Age of DC Heroes this is, an underwhelming start for the new line of DC heroes.
