Titans continues to drag towards its finale. I lost interest in this book a few months back, and each issue just becomes less and less engaging. I suspect my reviews are suffering the same problem, as there is less and less I feel like discussing.
Beast Boy gets a lot of play in this one, and I really like the character, so that should help. Except I don’t care for him in the big bestial state he has been left in since the Source Wall cracked, and that’s what his role in this story focusses on.
The stuff with the two Ravens is kind of interesting, and I will admit to liking the battle with Donna Troy, although that’s mostly due to the art.
Yes, the art is good. Except for the helmets worn by the Church of Blood members. But those silly hats have been around for a while, and I am able to ignore them and give my attention to other things.
Sometimes I wonder, when a book is in this kind of situation, if cutting it loose is not the wisest move. Sales had already determined that this book was on the chopping block. Why not kill it mid storyline? As a writer myself, that idea seems loathsome. But it would be more merciful than plowing further into the ground.
