Biosusan reviews Teen Titans #95.
Credits & Solicit Info:
Written by J.T. KRUL; Art and cover by NICOLA SCOTT and DOUG HAZLEWOOD
Trapped in a dangerous world of monsters from Hindu lore, The Teen Titans are being hunted down. Will Superboy be the next to fall? And for what dark purpose does the Demon King Rankor need our heroes? Don't miss the next chapter of Solstice's first adventure with the team!
Once again, I am thoroughly impressed with the awesome that is Teen Titans. Issue #95 came out this past Wednesday. It's a continuation of the current story line, where the Teen Titans have found themselves in a demon realm, trying to rescue Cassie's and new member, Solstice's, parents. I'm incredibly interested in what Raven has got going on now that she's here. Her character has always been torn between what is good and the demonic nature of her practice. However, she does not know if it's the light emitted by Solstice or the demon inside her that is causing her so much pain. I feel the side that wins the battle within Raven will ultimately be the key to the story. Then again, writer J.T. Krul has been known to throw in a few twists to keep me guessing.
Not only is the story intriguing, but I haven't even gotten into the artwork! Penciller Nicola Scott and colorist Jason Wright have created a dry wasteland of a demon realm that makes me want to drink a gallon of water. I really get the sense that the Teen Titans are not only in incredible danger but are also out of their comfort zone. I very much enjoyed the colors, because a lot of the characters blended, making it seem like they could lose themselves here. Maybe I'm reading into it too much, but it makes for one pretty book. That's for sure!
Overall, Teen Titans #95 is just one book in a stream of really good storylines with excellent characters. Plus, it is a DC book that has nothing to do with Flashpoint, so that makes me happy. I've been having a lot of fun reading these, and I highly suggest you pick them up, too.
