Teen Titans #4 (Walmart) Review

This is a pretty good chapter in the Titans story headlining the issue. Certainly Dan Jurgens makes more of the Disruptor than Wolfman ever did, power-wise, at least. In the New Teen Titans, Disruptor’s story was more about his dysfunctional relationship with his father. While I wouldn’t mind seeing a bit more characterization along these lines, my interest was held by Psimon’s increasing distrust of the new leader of the Fearsome Five.

As far as the Titans themselves go, Beast Boy is allowed to steal the show in this one, although Raven pulls out a commanding ending.

On the whole, the Teen Titans series that runs in the Walmart book seems more interested in action than in any real development of the characters. I suppose that is a given. These are out of continuity stories, and so anything that really evolved with one of the heroes would not be able to be played on in the actual books.

Still, the storytelling and art are of high enough quality that this in no way feels like some cheap knock off, an inferior tale stuffed into a lesser book. I wouldn’t mind if the stories were a little longer, but I still find it entertaining at its current length.

Rating: 8.5 /10
