On page 4 is that Rose and Eddie hugging? Aww. Looks like she has no eye patch there though.

And I must say they've definitely seemed to take away any chance of redeeming Joey out some time ago.

I thought so too, but some fans seemed willing to hold out hope.

I think this will pretty much make that unlikely.

Looks like some word balloons got put out of place. Other than that? This doesn't look good. At all.

I've seen worse, but you're right, it isn't stellar art.

Looks like page 4 and page 5.

Good for them.

At least there was a nice Gar/Vic moment... for what it's worth.

Frack, I just noticed something.

SPOILER. Highlight below text to read
Did Jericho shoot Eddie in the head on page 7? Looks to me like he did, although chances are it's a glancing shot because there isn't much blood.

Seeing preview pages like that makes me glad I don't read dc anymore.

This is getting pretty bad...

Uuugh. It's really starting to strain credulity that TWO Titans teams can't manage to stop ONE body-hopping baddie. Especially when Wally rushes in, and, rather than disarming Joey at super-speed, or knocking him out-- he stops dead to talk with him.

And "evil Jericho"is such a misfire as a plot idea, as a serious A-level threat, and as a dragged out multi-part crossover. Do we even know "who" is driving Joey's body? Which psychotic personality? And what their motives are? Even psychos have motives.

No wonder McKeever left if this was the direction of the books...

The Titans books need help so very, very, very badly...

I agree. This has been a very lackluster story arc and I have been tired of evil Jericho for awhile now.

They shouldnt have had him go all bad and crazy so long before they decieded to start this arc.

And how many artists have been on this arc so far? It seems like we have a different artist for every issue.

The preview was good, but they have taken Jericho way to far, and that isn't cool and not really a good storyline.

You know, I think most readers would have forgiven the idea of making Joey evil if they'd done it in a compelling, interesting story. But this hasn't been it. And I don't blame McKeever, Wolfman, or even Winick for this - right from the start, this story has felt like a direction editorial wanted but no one else seems to have been enthused for.

Glad I didn't decide to pick up Titans during this crossover.

Angel's art is usually much better than this, dont know what happened to him here, but yeah...this is not the best I've seen.
