How many speedsters does it take to…make an impulsive decision and put everyone’s timeline and lives at risk? What happens when turning back the hand of time, becomes too easy?


***NON-SPOILERS and SUMMARY AT THE BOTTOM***


I have a Need…


With both Wally Wests missing, the Titans and Teen Titans have no choice but to team up to try and save their friends. Robin, being the intrusive little runt that he is, reveals the lie that Nightwing has been holding on to; a deal with the devil. With a group of such skilled and powerful beings, it doesn’t take them long to find where the Wallys are, but it looks like they just might be too late.



A Need for Speed.


It was definitely exciting to see all these great characters working together. Percy did a fantastic job with the genuineness of these heroes’ personalities. The silly banter and head butting felt very natural and kept the book flowing, despite having such a large cast. I have to be honest there were quite a lot of panels where the art was off putting. It was almost too cartoony, and wasn’t proportionate. It was definitely noticeable enough to take me out of the story. The plot was well devised and they actually made Deathstroke a even worse threat than he already was. I’m very excited to see how this plays out.


Sum it Up!


A great continuation of this crossover arc. It was a fast and enjoyable read. Every character was highlighted perfectly and each unique quirky quality added flair to the story. There were moments, artistically that, for me at least, took away from the story. Even so, the suspenseful plot line and skill of having the heroes be so well developed made up for it. Definitely a book for the shelf.

7.5/10
