The students are currently not interesting enough to hold an entire book alone, and it's quite weird focusing on them rather than the actual Titans or even the previous roster of the TT. The writing is nice, but I just don't care enough about these kids to read about them.

Overall, really good issue.
It was a bit weird that Damian was able to outrun/outsmart (almost) everyone, but other than that it was really good.
Dick and Damian's dialogue was of course the best part. We needed that.

This story has potential, but right now it's just too frustrating to read with this never-ending influx of new characters, and the fact that the current Batfamily is basically just Harley and Ghost-maker.


The art is still absolutely stunning and is one of the redeeming qualities of the book.

The book was far from interesting, but the worst part was trying too hard (again) to shove Duke as Gotham's only hope. That's just pathetic. Also, just stop trying to make characters look better by comparing them to existing characters and say they are better. That's either annoying or just looks completely unbelievable.

Crush & Lobo #2

By: Mariko Tamaki, Amancay Nahuelpan
Released: Jul 7, 2021

If there’s anything Crush knows, it’s that traveling through space is a great time to load up on coffee, catch up on murder podcasts, and definitely not get sucked into a spiral of depression while reflecting on your meet-cute with the ex-girlfriend who just dumped you. When Crush’s trusty travel mug runs dry, a pit stop for caffeine puts Lob...
