Welcome back. It’s been awhile since we’ve done some reviews and we wanted to get caught up. Today, Rek is going to be reviewing Titans #28 written by Dan Abnett and art by Clayton Henry.
Let’s start off by saying that this is just a tie-in with Justice League: Drowned Earth, the event that is going on in DC comics right now. I’m going to try and keep that in mind while doing my review… I said I’ll try.
First off, if you left off reading Titans after the rebirth team broke up, then you haven’t missed much. The characters have had little time to do any form of team-building whatsoever and it shows in the recent stories. Everyone seems confused or out of place, especially Steel. The only thing that makes them a team right now is the name alone. At least earlier in the run we had Nightwing to glue the characters together (which I will be giving my full opinion on the recent events of Nightwing when the next issue comes out), but now they’re all scattered.
Dan Abnett did a great job with the original Titans when rebirth started, but I’m confused about where he wants to take this new team. Honestly, I don’t even think he knows what to do with them.
However, this issue was a tie-in and had Garth hear the news about Nightwing getting shot from Donna, which made for a nice two to three panels. The art is nice, but not spectacular.
Overall, this issue was just a tie-in and my review will treat it as such.
(How good is the story? Does it stand up to others?)
(Does it tell the story? Does it work well with the character?)
(Does this story need to be told? Is it helping the Character?)
(Is the character represented well? Does the writer understand the character?)
Total: 10 / 20
