In a very enjoyable issue that read like a throwback Perez and Wolfman collaboration, Titans #7 provided a day in the life of the reunited team.
While Nightwing, Tempest and Oracle get their new headquarters up to speed, Flash, Arsenal and Donna Troy deal with a runaway meta. And meet Superman.
Superman can be a cheap sales-boosting guest star, but his cameo here makes a lot of sense thanks to his unique connection with Wally West.
Lee Weeks steps in for regular artist Brett Boothe. While not quite the same as working on the bi-weekly schedule, I appreciated that Boothe wrapped the first arc before needing a fill-in.
Weeks is a reliable storyteller. What his art may lack in sizzle, Weeks more than makes up with easy to follow layouts and strong, expressive characters. In Weeks’ hands, the Titans don’t look like teens, but young adults ready to make their mark together. This was exactly the kind of story the book needed after the prolonged battle with Abra Kadabra. Keep an eye on Titans. This is a book that’s only going to get better from here on out and now’s a great time to catch up.
