Overall the new arc started pretty well, but the pacing is still a bit slow.
The art was decent enough, but Redondo is missed, and I hope he'll return to the book soon.

The backup story was surprisingly fun, and the art by Acuna was great.

Nightwing is a great leader, not just because Batman trained him, or because of how Alfred raised him, or even because he has a heart of gold-it’s because of his friends, and now that the Titans are in Blüdhaven with him, they can leap into the light together…which is perfect timing for the demon of darkness Neron to do something about it.
