Titans #20 Review

TITANS-20.jpg
The Titans have split up and retired, following the demands of the Justice League in the previous issue. The cover implies that this story will follow the members of the Titans in their different lives now, but that is not exactly what happens.

We do briefly catch up with Dick Grayson and Wally West, as Wally moves into his new apartment, and hear that Lilith and Garth have taken off to spend some time together. Donna Troy chats with Wonder Woman. But the focus of this tale is, unmistakably, Roy Harper.

It’s sad but inevitable that Roy makes terrible decisions whenever he is on his own, and that’s exactly what happens here. Cheshire shows up. No mention is made of their daughter. I’m not sure if she is now alive or dead or was never born, but Roy and Cheshire still have some sort of shared past.

Cheshire convinces Roy to help her steal a drug from Intergang, and Roy goes along with it. You know he is making another bad decision, and as much as I would like to criticize Abnett for writing Roy as absurdly gullible, I have to concede that he actually got the poor guy dead on. Making mistakes is what Roy Harper is all about.

The art is very good, the story is fun, and there is even a great cameo to close out the issue. All in all, a well done issue.

Rating: 8.5 /10
