“Damian Knows Best: Part One,” by Benjamin Percy, Jonboy Meyers, and artist Jim Charalampidis, is an interesting read. It gives the reader a bit of Damian's back story and why he has captured Beastboy, Kid Flash, Raven, and Starfire. Damian wants to bring the Teen Titans back together, now that they have gone their separate ways since Tim Drake “died”. He kidnaps them and holds them hostage to show that they work better together and not alone, which in a way is a good way to show them when they wouldn't listen to just words. However, it's not the best way to convince someone to join your team.
It seems like we'll see the Teen Titans reunited (minus Tim Drake) to help save the world, which is always great to see. It should be good for all the members, to get back into being a team again. Just because Tim is gone, doesn't mean that the team has to be gone. If Tim were really gone, he would want them to continue saving the world and being the Teen Titans. I have a feeling there are going to be some problems with Damian, but I think they will get through those problems and focus on saving the world.
The Verdict: I'm glad to see that the Teen Titans, minus Tim Drake, are back together again. Not only is it good for the readers to see, it's good for the characters. Of course, these characters aren't Teen Titans forever, but in the meantime, they need each other and it's good to see that they see that.
