  1. I haven’t read Teen Titans yet but is this a good spot to maybe jump on? Is it worth checking out especially with the crossovers?

    • Teen Titans is easily one of the best new 52 books and in my top 10.

      But no as this Month is the big finale of the first story arc.

      Next month’s Teen Titans #10 would be the best place to start..
      Superboy is also closely tied into Teen Titans so that may be worth a look with issue #10 as well.

    • Nice. Thanks for the heads up.

    • This is the start of a 4 part crossover. If this comic isn’t an accessible place to jump in, that introduces all the players to new readers, then the editor needs to be sacked.

      Although it would probably be better to have read all the previous Teen Titans issues mainly as it’s a really good book I think you should be able to jump on here as most of the back story gets explained. I don’t collect Legion Lost but I found it easy enough to get what was happening with them

  2. errrr….it’s pretty much in the middle of the story right now. It’s been a good series though.

  3. This is a great title, one of the best DC has to offer right now however; this is not the best time to jump on. The kids are right in the middle of a story arc so maybe grab the trade that should be coming out soon and then jump on board, you will not be sorry. Teen Titans Annual you say???? Hmmmmm???? Annual, realllllyyy? It has’nt even been a year, how is it possible to have an annual?? Whatever, just more Teen Titans for us to read; it’s a good thing.


    • “Annual” just means released AT SOME POINT on a yearly basis. Doesn’t mean it needs to come out every 12 issues. Typically, it’s got a larger page count (either due to story page count or added pin-ups).

    • Whatever, I really was not that concerned to be honest with you, just happy it gives me some more pages of the Teen Titans to read is really where I was headed.


  4. Really hope I don’t have to read Superboy and TT to get the whole story here. I’m only getting this for Legion Lost.

  5. I feel like the main story here (heroes fighting each other) is what AVX wants to be but this succeeds at being great where AVX is just okay. Just my two cents, I loved this book.

  6. This annual was really great…..I agree that this is one of the best of the new 52. I’m a little disappointed that I have to pick up issues from titles I don’t read to get the whole story (which I don’t normally do) but this story is so good I’m going to do it.
    The art was great…..the crossover was good and the villain is cool…….Great job Titans keep up the good work.

  7. I absolutely loved everything about this issue. I read Superboy, Legion Lost & Teen Titans, so I’m sure that added to my enjoyment. I’m hoping this crossover more solidly connects the Legion Lost crew to the DCU.

    Loved it and found it easy to follow even though I only get Teen Titans of the 3 crossover books. I did get Superboy but I dropped both a while back. I will definitley get all 4 parts and am slightly tempted to get Legion Lost as I like the concept.

  9. I really just gave this a 3 and that has never happened for this title yet. Just got bored at several spots and even a little confused at times on what exactly what they are trying to do with these characters? This Culling has been around for how long? I must say I like the N.O.W.H.E.R.E. organization idea, I even like the Harvest character and some of his hench me/women I just feel this has been sent down a bad rabbit hole and we are no all trying to climb out and it just keeps getting deeper. Please lets get this concluded and move on.
