Titans vs the Fearsome Five!

Flash and Nightwing were trapped at the end of the last issue at the hands of the Fearsome Five. Now it’s up to Donna Troy, Omen, Arsenal, and Tempest to save them. Plus with Bumblebee to the rescue. 

I can not rave enough about how much I’m loving this title. As I said time and time again, writer Dan Abnett gets that the  Titans are more than a team. More than friends. They are each others family.  I grew up with these original Titans, so it’s just so great so see a writer that gets it. I think it might also be due to the fact I have friends that I consider family. Either way, it just works. These are my Titans. 

Abnett does an excellent job on the dialogue and also moving the story along at a really good pace. Plus, balancing all these characters is amazing. Unlike the Justice League, the only one who has their own title is Nightwing. So this balance is important. Add to that the classic Titans villains the Fearsome Five, good lord I’m loving this series. 

Of course, it does hurt to have artist Brett Booth on the book. The man’s art is amazing. The facial expressions really do express what they are supposed to. And the action sequence work so well. I’ve been following Brett for years on Twitter and the majority of his sketches were the Titans, so I can only imagine this has to be a dream project for him. In this issue, we kind of see a redesign of Guardian. Loved it and I hope we see more of it.

This is a must buy comic. It’s the right balance of friendship and super heroics.
