    Taylor doesn’t like to do long, drawn out battles so the Titans don’t have much trouble mopping up lightweight opponents. The strength of his Nightwing run, which is seeming the case with Titans, is the exquisite character development and interaction. It’s so well done at times, I think back going “wait, there was only four pages of action in the issue?” It doesn’t matter since everything with Titans, including the clean and easy to read lettering from Wes Abbott, is done at a high level. Titans #3 is another banger of an installment for a young series that feels like it could have long-term staying power with this creative team.

    This issue almost feels low-key and jokey for most of it, until the last page when it takes a very sharp side turn into horror and leaves us with a truly disturbing final visual. If Taylor has done one thing exceptionally in this run, he’s managed to keep us hooked with each and every issue.

    Titans #3 continues the wonderful streak of this series. It’s brilliantly written, beautifully drawn, colored, and lettered, and is as engaging as ever. I can’t wait for what happens next.

    The Story: A fun, intense and action-packed issue. I continue to enjoy the direction Taylor is taking this team and how exciting their adventures are becoming. I love the different mysteries at the heart of this series and how those mysteries inform the team dynamics and how they interact with each other. The Church of Blood storyline is really interesting and I look forward to seeing how it unfolds. The Art: Scott consistently delivers beautiful art throughout the issue. The characters look great and the action is visually engaging.

    Titans #3 showcases that the team is not just action stars, but they are also investigators. They will have a tough time figuring out why the Flash will die, if the Church of Blood has reformed, and what made Tempest join the Church. Action, drama, and mystery abound as Tom Taylor and Nicola Scott tag team as a creative force that shows why the Titans are the premier DC super team.

    Titans is simultaneously grounded superhero fun and supernatural satanic insanity. Taylor has crafted a spooky mystery fueled by the occult while throwing a light coat of capes and tights on it to tidy it up a bit. Between the Church of Blood and some body horror throughout, Scott's artwork shines particularly bright in an otherwise gloomy, dark issue.

    Titans #3 is a strong outing with great art and intriguing story. The character work is great by both Taylor and Scott. The classic Church of the Blood connection brings a classic feel to the story and the there’s real nuance to Garth’s role and concerns for the environment.

    I hate to be that guy, but nobody buys Brother Blood’s reform whatsoever. Even in 2D, Tempest’s oversell of disgust and disappointment in the evil church feels off. Let’s be honest, that’s definitely a compliment to Nicola Scott artwork and gesture illustrations. Furthermore, the Titans team feel like they work best when they have something to care about. So far, most of the team’s personalities and missions feel slightly hollow in the writing. None of them feel like individuals. The best portion of the book is how Wally approaches his mortality head first, yet everyone else reacts with disappointment but overall understanding. Overall, the book is moving at a decent pace, looks good, and keeps a sense of fun and much needed mystery.

    Weird Science DC Comics

    Titans #3 picks on one of the three, and the least urgent, of the open plots started in issue #1 to find out if Brother Eternity is legit or a snake. There are enough twists to keep Brother Eternity's status in doubt, and the big fight sequence is a step up from Taylor's generally pacifist take on superheroes, but the overall title lacks focus, and the art is just okay.
