The Red Robin era gets started as Tim Drake takes over the leadership duties of the team and the Teen Titans take a trip to Pakistan to help out a friend of Wonder Girl. The parents of Solstice have been taken by a demon, and its up to the Titans to get them back.
There’s quite a bit going on in this issue including a couple of members chaffing under the team’s new leadership (we’ll have to wait to find out what Ravager‘s issues with Red Robin are), the introduction of a new character who seems to be slotted in as a potential new team member, and the stark differences between Solstice and Raven.
The action itself isn’t all that special, but the interplay between characters and emotions of the team’s shakeup work quite well. I’m glad the team has its leader back, and even if their first test isn’t something I’d choose, it’s still a good beginning. It also doesn’t hurt that we get another issue drawn in the clean, sleek and vibrant style of Nicola Scott. Worth a look.
