Not Bad, but not good either

Okay, so Kid Flash is Bart Allen rather than Wally West, that does increase my opinion of the book (I still want to know what happened to Wally, though). Also a line states that there have been other versions of the Teen Titans, which I like; how does that fit into the 5-year Timeline is everybody's guess.

What else? Skitter seems kinda generic, Solstice thing as a tortured shadow feels a bit cliche, weapon-Superboy feels old, I don't care much for Cassie's attitude, and I wonder what's Bart' story now. Also the art is very 90s.

In my opinion, if DC wants kids to read their book they should go more for the cartoon approach; something fun and lighthearted, but with a deeper meaning and real drama behind bright colors. It worked with Justice League Unlimited.

    Teen Titans #2 follows up directly after the last issue. Tim is still focused on getting a team together to fight against the agents of N.O.W.H.E.R.E and Cassie is still adamant about keeping out of it. We are also introduced to some new characters in this issue. The first of which is Skitter who is a half insectoid half human teenager that seems to be having trouble holding onto her humanity. The other is none other than Solstice who has undergone a serious cosmetic change. Though not as action...
