More truth behind Raven’s past, as she and her mother are confronted by those that would see Raven sacrificed for the greater good. And that would include Baron Winters, who has his own agenda (one that possibly includes a revival of his own ongoing series, but that remains to be seen).

 

Meanwhile, the illusion-casting Azure isn’t the only hidden experiment at 2MorrowsTech. There is an entire Green Lantern spectrum of super-powered sisters, all whom seem to have a grudge against Raven and/or her mother.

 

Events in this issue seem to be moving slowly, allowing for greater character development – not only with Raven, but with her supporting cast as well. There seems to be some exposition, which I don’t feel is entirely necessarily. But then I have the New Teen Titans in the archives of my Fortress of Solitude, so maybe it’s just an advantage I have in this particular instance.

 

I’d said before that Mhan and Kindzierski’s artwork is suitably moody for the material at hand, though I’ve come to realize that is only partially true. They do great with Raven and her environs, but far less so in the scenes set at Baron Winters’ mansion. They seem rather flat, in a very Silver Age sort of way.
