The Writing

Tom Taylor wastes no time plunging readers into the heart of the action, picking up immediately after the shocking events of the previous issue. The narrative expertly weaves together themes of betrayal, redemption, and the struggle for survival, keeping readers on the edge of their seats from start to finish. 

The suspenseful twist from the last issue, where Raven’s alter ego takes over her body while her true self is trapped inside the Chakra stone, adds an intriguing layer of dramatic irony. As readers uncover Raven’s sinister plot alongside Trigon, a palpable sense of tension escalates, culminating in a tantalizing reveal that leaves fans eagerly awaiting the next installment.

The battle unfolds on multiple fronts, with some turning against the Titans due to perceived destruction caused by Beast Boy’s efforts to save the world. This exploration of media influence and public perception adds depth to the narrative, amplifying tension and tone. Despite the odds stacked against them, the Titans find solace in the addition of a new asset, the T-Jet, offering a glimmer of hope amidst the chaos.

The tension builds relentlessly, culminating in a jaw-dropping revelation that leaves readers clamoring for more. Taylor’s skillful characterization and nuanced exploration of the team dynamics elevate the story, drawing readers deeper into the world of the Titans.

Stephen Segovia’s artwork brings the demonic world to life with stunning detail and intensity. Each panel is imbued with a palpable sense of dread and foreboding, as Segovia masterfully captures the dark atmosphere of the story. Annette Kwok’s colors further enhance the visual experience, utilizing a dark and brooding palette to mirror the grim tone of the narrative. Wes Abbott’s lettering choices add an extra layer of depth, particularly in scenes involving Raven’s alter ego, effectively conveying her sinister presence. Employing a black background with colored font, and then seamlessly switching to normal font when interacting with the Titans, effectively underscores Raven’s facade. This clever technique ensures the Titans remain unsuspecting, adding layers of intrigue to Raven’s master plan and her motives behind her deception.
