Yeesh, I’m really getting lost with this book now. Every issue starts off in a completely different place to where the last one ended, and this issue had a whole new bunch of villains in there. Gone are Templar and Centrehall, now we have some weirdoes called Omen and Harvest. What? I guess it’s my own fault for not reading Teen Titans, but for the first 5 or so issues this title did a decent enough job of standing at least somewhat alone. Now though… this ‘Culling’ crossover seems to have come out of nowhere. I suppose I’ll have to check out the Teen Titans annual that kicks it off, but really, I’m not that interested in following the story, especially since it’s going to involve a book written by Howard bleedin’ Mackie. I may have to drop this book, which is a shame because on it’s day it can be pretty damn interesting, and the fight between Superboy and Grunge here is a case in point, that was a really entertaining battle. I think DC made a mistake in tying this book so closely to Teen Titans so early on, it didn’t allow either book to develop it’s own identity. At least we got to see some more Gen13 characters, and now Beast Boy, who is red for some reason.

Out of nowhere ? DC has been teasing The Culling for months now. It's also been mentioned in the DC Nation blurbs at the end of the books.

Not a bad issue but that last page made me want to murder everyone involved.

So now Omen is a torturer, Beast Boy is red, and Terra is from Tron? I hate you so much Lobdell and Booth.

I wish they'd taken the opportunity to redesign Grunge.
