This is a huge battle, almost from cover to cover. If you like action, THIS is your issue of Titans! Of course the Fearsome Five have never given up their powers, and the battle is on to save Flash and Nightwing…only things are not looking good for the good guys. It’s about to be over in a very bad way when Bumblebee jumps into action. She has a LOT more power than anyone recognized before, and she gives the Titans the break they need to get back into the fight. Psimon realizes that today’s battle is lost, and they retreat, but not before taking something away from Karen.
What does she lose? She loses the very essence of who she is! Bumblebee no longer recognizes Mal or even her own baby. Someone must thing that memory engram is very valuable, someone capable of stealing powers and memories and turning out new metas…who or what could that be?
Yep, you guessed it…we’re ready to get into a BIG story with H.I.V.E.!
We’re going to have a lot of fun very quickly with Deathstroke and the Titans…and the Teen Titans in “The Lazarus Contract”. This is an excellent way to introduce the storyline to an audience that may not know the classic Titans stories…and it’s a welcome re-introduction to long time fans. We have already seen some outstanding stories in this series…and it looks like even bigger things are coming just down the road. Thanks once again to writer Dan Abnett for an excellent story, with fantastic artwork once again from the super-team of Brett Booth (pencils), Norm Rapmund (inks), and Andrew Dalhouse (colors). This is a 10/10 for me – what do YOU think? Leave your comments below!
