Lyles Movie FilesThere’s been some tension brewing among the team and it reaches its breaking point with the arrival of the Terror Titans. If you’re gonna wind down a team book, it makes sense to have them battle a supervillain team. With a big reveal in this cliffhanger and so, so much left to tell from a storytelling perspective hopefully this isn’t the last time we see this creative team handle the adventures of the Teen Titans.

ComicBook.comSometimes it can difficult to think of new ways to sing the praises of DC's World's Finest series, but World's Finest: Teen Titans can often make it easy with its dynamic storytelling and fresh ideas. Waid and Lupacchino are able to masterfully re-tell the earlier days of the Teen Titans, injecting some ingenious new characterization for classic characters. What makes World's Finest work so well is that all the characters feel "right" and the conflic arises organically. I've said it before and I'll say it again, World's Finest is a superhero comic book fan's dream come true and you're doing yourself a disservice if you're not checking out at least one entry under Waid's umbrella. The final page isn't a surprise for those who are big Teen Titans fans for example, but it feels like one thanks to the inventive new approach. Buy this comic book.

Furthermore, this issue is an enjoyable read depicting how the original Teen Titans became the gold standard for generations of heroes to admire.
