Review

Praise for Teen Tians Vol. 1:

"Grade: A. Brett Booth's illustrations, reminiscent of early 1990s superhero art, works for the book's youthful, kinetic heroes, and works for potential teen readers willing to take this superhero comic for a spin on their iPads."—USA Today
 
 "Booth offers a kinetic approach that drips with energy."—IGN

"It finds a great equilibrium between the fun that made many of us first pick up comics, and the narrative strength that kept us reading them."—PopMatters

You never really do figure out just what the heck is going on.

I wanted to get into comics so I started reading The New 52 Comics and have fallen absolutely in love with them.
Randy Curby
Lobdell and company keep hinting at a bigger story here but are giving very little payoff so far.

So I bought Teen Titans, Vol. 1: It's Our Right to Fight (The New 52) and Superboy Vol. 1: Incubation (The New 52), liked them both, and was very interested to see how those stories were going to scope out. However, I was very hesitant to read "The Culling: Rise of the Ravagers" for two main reasons. One: I hadn't read Legion Lost Vol. 1: Run From Tomorrow (The New 52), the other prelude to this event. Two: the main theme I kept seeing from pretty much every internet source that offered reviews for this book was that the Culling was absolutely terrible, God Awful, that I should stay away from it at all costs, etc. I was eager to see how the stories played out and this "big event" that the Teen Titans and Superboy had played up to though. So I did what I do for most book purchases I'm a little wary of making and that was go to a book store on a day I had enough free time and read it there to see if it was worth it.

Well, here's what I found. It's in no way as bottom of New 52 barrel as the consensus let's on (trust me, I've been getting into these New 52 books for months and this is very far from one of the worst I've read). Although, I will admit there is a definite lack of depth factor that keeps me from quantifying The Culling as anything spectacular. It's pretty much got the same art style present from the works preluding it.

"The Culling" was DC's great attempt at launching the Ravagers, trying to tie "Legion Lost" into the modern DC universe, and showcasing the new 52 version of the "Teen Titans." It simply doesn't work. Scott Lobdell and Tom DeFalco are both fine comics writers but there are too many characters here and, frankly, as a longtime Legion fan, I'm a little bewildered by their attempts at characterization. With intense and often gory actions scenes, there is little time to make readers care about the characters on stage. There is an entire host of artists at work here and it feels inconsistent to say the least. The newly launched Ravagers do nothing to impress. It's telling that the Ravagers comic was canceled after a year and the Legion Lost comic did not even last a year and a half. This is a jumbled mess of a comics collection that will do nothing to satisfy fans of any of the groups and heroes caught up in this story. Only the battle scenes can be commended in this book and even they are not enough to give "The Culling" anything close to a recommendation.

I should note that I purchased the individual comics that made up this collection and not the TPB itself; I imagine the only thing extra included in this edition are some character sketches.

With that said, possible SPOILERS ahead:

SPOILERS

The Culling storyline was a crossover between Teen Titans, Superboy, and Legion L.O.S.T. The crossover makes sense when thought of this way:

-Project N.O.W.H.E.R.E. is performing experiments on teenage metahumans to develop their powers and make a veritable army. The experiments are pretty much mental and physical torture, and captives are forced to fight for their survival. Those candidates who survive become agents of N.O.W.H.E.R.E. known as Ravagers.
-Superboy is a clone of Superman and an unknown 3rd party created by Project N.O.W.H.E.R.E. as a potential weapon. He was sent to attack the Teen Titans, as the Titans have been opposing Project N.O.W.H.E.R.E. and their experiments. After their obligatory battle, Superboy and the Titans resolved their differences and he joined the team.
-Project N.O.W.H.E.R.E. is headed up by the villain Harvest, a man who has various knowledge and technology that should not exist in the current era. This brought him to the attention of Legion L.O.S.T., an offshoot of the Legion of Super-Heroes who is currently trapped in the 21st century.

The storyline essentially consists of the Titans and Legion L.O.S.T. getting thrown in the arena and having to fight for their survival. They eventually get out with the assistance of other metahumans in the arena and some staff members of Project N.O.W.H.E.R.E.

As a prior commentor said, a lot of action, not much story. This storyline did set up the series "The Ravagers", but I heard that series is being cancelled. Legion L.O.S.T. also ended up getting cancelled, so I'm not sure if there was some kind of curse around the storyline.

This crossover was alright, nothing special.

At one point in reading "The Culling" storyline, I had to flip back to the cover of the book to check the credits and make sure it wasn't Felicia Henderson writing the Teen Titans again. It felt rudimentary and written by a beginner who didn't care a whit about character development. It was like reading a script for a porn movie vs. reading the script for Schindler's List. That's how awful the story and dialogue was.

The concept of "The Culling" itself might have been better if it wasn't already so prevalent in everyone's minds as a little story called The Hunger Games. Worse, this story has already been done before in the last volume of Teen Titans, when it was called the Dark Side Club, pitting Titan against Titan in the ring for others' enjoyment. Only this time, instead of getting the Terror Titans series out of the story, we get The Ravagers. Worst, the name "The Culling" itself only brings to mind Edward Cullen from the God-awful Twilight series. They're trying to capitalize on the popularity of both Twilight and The Hunger Games in one fell swoop. [Insert barf here.
