What exactly just happened? - colten97
Did we skip an issue? Did something happen in another comic? How did we end up in a cabin in the woods? It seemed, for two issues, as though Teen Titans was getting better. Maybe not great, but better than it had been. Now, it's the same old crap. This comic, for lack of a better word, sucks. It's horribly paced, over written, and so convoluted that it's nearly impossible to care about any of these characters.
Oh, Teen Titans. You pulled us through the muck that was The Culling. You teased us, like the bad stuff was in the past and the Teen Titans were on the road to something more fun. Then, you drop this garbage on our heads. It's trite, boring, and pointless. The characters have no motivation, they exist as stereotypes and punching bags. Nothing of value happens. Take us back to Mystery Island. Take us back to better days. Let the Teen Titans be a team and, you know, interesting characters.
This issue is not Brett Booth's best. It has some slick double page spreads and a few nice moments, but the action is seriously muddled. The characters fly across the page constantly and it never looks very good. The intense fight between Wonder Girl, Superboy, and Red Robin is anything but. It's awkward. Really, the only good thing in this book is the coloring work by Andrew Dalhouse. He brings a sense light and energy that this comic does not deserve. Don't spend your money on Teen Titans. Spend it on something more worth while, like paying somebody to punch you in the face.
