What an odd intro to this issue. The pacing of it was off and the result, the team gathering and getting into the jet, was just odd. Very, very odd. It sets the tone for the entire issue and everything is off.

They traded one Robin for another last issue, with Red Robin returning to the team. He immediately takes over, apparently at the request of Wonder Girl who didn’t mention anything to the rest of the team. That just reads as odd.

It’s like Krul is using Red Robin as the “intro” character, the one that the reader sees through and learns about the book and the team. But what is odd about that is that Krul has been on the book for a little while now and this is out of place. As out of place as the anger between Ravager and Red Robin. That appears out of nowhere and comes across that way.

As does Ravager’s teasing of Kid Flash. Nothing like that existed in prior issues. It’s like Krul decided to start a new run on Teen Titans with this issue.

Solstice’s introduction is odd as well. She just appears and no one has any questions for her? Like how Wonder Girl knows her? Why she has powers? Granted her parents are missing, but those are some points that need to be addressed.

Scott’s pencils are great. She has a nice, clean and crisp style. Her characters are well proportioned, well drawn. She’s got a good grasp of storytelling and her panels flow smoothly and naturally. There are some panels that are off with the perspectives, but nothing major. She does great with the differing sizes of the characters, having Cassie have to bend down to hug Solstice.

The pacing was off, giving this whole issue an odd feel.
