I thought the story was, for the most part, ok.
However, there were a few flaws such as Raven not knowing what bowling pins were and what the objective of bowling was. She may have been out of the loop for a while and have less life-experience than most people, but she ain't that ignorant. Give her some credit.
Obviously Gail is only a guest writer and has not had much to do with the Titans in the past, so she can't be expected to know every aspect of the characters. Still, as Rog said, Beast Boy was practically forgotten (though this is in part due to Liefield as well), and the dialogue didn't really hit you (in a good way).

Please come back, Geoff. And bring Tony with you, please.

I never back out on buying a book that I blindly preorder. That'll teach me a lesson.

I'm getting it so I can read how it ends. I normally love Gail's writing and want to see if I like this ish any better. While I hated the abyssmal art in 27, the story was ok for me.

Already bought it, was not worth it (except for the writing).

Hopefully DC learned their lesson and does not use Liefeld as an artist again.

I didn't like the first part, but this issue, the story and the art was much better.

I skipped both issues of this story altogether.
I'm not one to waste my money on poor quality just in interest of "filling a gap". Way I see it, that's money that could be better spent elsewhere.

Bought it. Read it. Swore at it. Put it in a bag and stuffed it into my longbox. Thats about all I can say about it.
