Getting caught up on your Titans?

I picked up Teen Titans #17 and Mera #1.
BOTH of the main comic shops were sold out of Terrifics #1. WTF? It's not even getting good reviews.

Iím working on it.  We moved into our new house this weekend so I havenít had much of a chance to read.  Iím vegging out tonight after a long day of moving small stuff and cleaning the apartment. Going to get some reading out of the way.  Hmmm. Maybe Titans should be first!

Real quick- Secret Empire 10.

It wasn't just Alonso who should have gotten fired. Heads should have rolled everywhere. Why Spencer is still working for them now is beyond me currently.

Not sure if I will get through all of these tonight but I do have some free time tonight.

Titans - I liked this last arc.  Funny I had dropped right before the very issue that made it fun to read.  Glad I came back.  I agree with Rodney thought -
Why would they listen to the Justice League.  I also don't believe the JL would have imposed this on them anyway.  How can you tell the adult Titans you can't be a team but let the little Teen Titans run around unsupervised?  Not consistent.

Terrifics - I liked this first issue.  Rodney said this wasn't getting good reviews.  I wonder why?  This is a fun read!

Got a few in last week -

Action Comics #998 - Just trying to get myself pumped for Bendis' run by reading stuff that will not matter once he is on  ;D
Aquaman #33 - Don't understand Rodney's opinion on the art (you don't like this stuff, my man?), but I love it! Hells yeah.

Avengers #682 - Still digging this story that I know Jimmy will not enjoy. Seriously, buddy, just avoid  :D I am digging it!!!
Doctor Strange #386 - Now THIS title is the one I see getting ragged on, but I dig the hell out of this. Make sense? No
Thanos #16 - AMAZ'BALLS!!!!!
Mighty Thor #704 - Just a tad under Thanos for as my pick of the week!!
Moon Knight #192 - Hmm, the gleam has worn a little thin, but still enjoying this for the most part. Wrong voice now though

Ice Cream Man #2 - Another good story, but not as "twisty" or "surprising" as I thought this title would be.

Terrifics - I liked this first issue.  Rodney said this wasn't getting good reviews.

Yeah, I saw where he said that here somewhere and I just have to ask ... Rodney, my man, where did you see it was getting bad reviews? You need to stop listening to those sites/reviewers  ;) ;D :D  because this was a solid first issue. I can get how not everyone is going to enjoy everything, but if you are getting multiple reports that this issue was bad ... I just can't agree. Sure, not much happens, but it is only a first issue after all. I enjoyed the art (all aspects of it), the pacing and the dialog was also on point.

If you are reading the bad reviews from Pierce Lydon over at Newsarama, he is ... he seems to like giving negative reviews anyway. At least from the reviews I have seen of him. Hell even with his review of this he seems like an FF fanboy that doesn't see that this comic IS a nod to that team. His 5 outta 10 for this being too much like the FF is totally missing the point.
If the bad reviews are coming from Outright Geekery, Kaboom, Comic Book Bin or the like, take those with a grain of salt. A lot of those smaller comic sites are just trying to get click bait and give some reviews, at least it seems, based on how much they can shock people.
Comicbook.com ... just has lots of peep. Don't key in on any one review there.  ;D

For a good review site, that gets all the reviews from most all other sites, always check out Comic Book Round-Up HERE (https://comicbookroundup.com/) to get a better sense of how titles and issues are hitting on average from around the net. There, you will see that Terrifics are getting an 8.0 average from critics and an 8.5 from us fans. I think that is a pretty good rating for an issue one
 :)

I say flip through the issue, if you can find one  :), next time you are at your LCS and see what ya think
