Review by James Attias

Titans #10 takes classic stories from the team’s history and brings them to the modern day, with team members changing and Demons rising from hell. 

Let the good times roll! 

The Devil’s Son’s Brother’s Sister’s Friends

Demons. Devils. Protestors. This looks like a job for the X-Men! I mean… Titans! This issue really hit me in the nostalgia, with Trigon manipulating his kids into invading Earth and trying to get the worst out of his daughter.

What the comic did perfectly was to keep the villains as the ones with all the info… although cracks are starting to show. So, we all know that the heroes are catching on. One thing that I hate hate hate, is when the audience knows sooo much more than the heroes, with no hope in sight.

I was so glad to read that some of the greatest heroes around can sense when their closest friends are not themselves. Also worth mentioning is that Wally has gone, so I’m glad that I’m keeping up to date with the Titans’solo titles. Garth is back, though! This felt like Titans stories of the ’80s… I Love it!

Magical, Colorful, Mystical

I often get so excited about the story that I don’t give enough praise and recognition to the artists. So, with this review, Lucas Meyer, Adriano Lucas, and Wes Abbott, I salute you. The characters look exactly how I picture them when I hear the word Titans, the vibrant colors light up the page, give Hell a vibrant red, and give our heroes the colorful splash they deserve.

The lettering was also on point, especially when three demons are talking, as well as the one who’s posing as a hero. Once again, the creative team is fantastic. I can’t wait to see what you guys do next, as well as who will join the series in the future.

Conclusion

Titans #10 is a wonderful comic that had me smiling from ear to ear. Don’t sleep on this title, people. Jump on ASAP… you won’t regret it.
