Rather than exploring other parts of this new DCU that aren't covered by other books, they decided to use this issue to insert a meaningless story, that takes place between Teen Titans issues, solely for the purpose to sell you on picking up the Teen Titans series.
Sadly, it fails to do that or even entertain on its own. The story is not developed at all, you don't care about the characters, plus the fact they had to do a convoluted info dump on page 1 is a clue how awful this story would be. Fabian Nicieza dropped the ball here, or just really needed the paycheck. To call this phoned-in is an insult to Ma Bell.
The art by Jorge Jimenez is that same bland modern manga-esque wannabe-style, which I've been fed up with for over a decade.
In short, this book is a waste of ink and paper. Don't waste your hard earned money on this dreck! Maybe next issue will be better, as it's hard to imagine it could be worse than this one!
