Superboy Returns to the Team in Teen Titans Annual #1


Teen Titans Annual #1 is a prime example of how a superhero comic should be written. It displays an engaging story for one thing. The emotional torment superheroes go through doing their job is explored as well.

In Teen Titans Annual #1, the young super heroes deal with Superboy’s return to the team. The Boy of Steel has left a trail of destruction in his wake since exiting the group.

Alison Borges’s art for Teen Titans Annual #1 was fantastic. It established a perfect dynamic between characters and captured their personalities very well. A lot of expression was shown between conversations. My only critique of the art was the fact that Martian Manhunter is being portrayed more along the appearance of Swamp Thing and Hulk. He is just extremely bulky compared to his Pre-New 52 appearance.

The overall story by Tom King and Will Pfeifer was very well executed for Teen Titans Annual #1. It’s almost like a suspense thriller sort of story, as you have no clue who the murderer is before the end of the comic. I have nothing but huge appreciation for the writers as they managed to keep the reader entertained for the entire issue. It had me wanting more by these writers.

Teen Titans Annual #1 is quite a masterpiece. The issue captured everything an annual comic should. I hope to see more comics like this in the future. (Review written by Everett Shirey)
