TITANS TOGETHER…AGAIN! Review TITANS #1

titans-1TITANS #1 brings together the original team (plus one) that I first saw in BRAVE AND THE BOLD #60 (an issue I bought waaay back when it first appeared on comic stands in 1965. More to the point, it brings together this team closer to the way most fans remember them as the NEW TITANS. Those days are gone, but so were the memories of their adventures…even their friendships. Now, they are together again, facing their biggest mystery…why? Why did Wally disappear? Why did they forget? We start to get to the bottom of this in TITANS #1! Want to know more? Follow us after the jump!

A New Flash #1 Hits the Ground Running (Review)

FLS-Cv1-r1-50f2fThis volume of THE FLASH gets off to a good start with issue #1, retelling the origin of the Flash and reintroducing us to the cast of characters…but there is a twist here that is important to note. It may seem a little much to restate the origin of the Flash again (after addressing it a bit in FLASH REBIRTH), but there are some really good reasons to do so here.  This does represent a good jumping on point for new fans, but it also takes a few beats to establish just what being Barry (and being The Flash) means in this new era, pulling key points from past iterations of the Scarlet Speedster. And, the origin story is echoed in a way that directly sets up the arc. We’ll have more for you on all of that…right after the jump.
