‘Titans: Beast World’ #6 brings the Titans into a new era, for better or worse

A very strong ending to an exciting event.

It all comes down to this! The Titans made their biggest move against Amanda Waller: hacking the U.S. government. And now there are two Ravens, one bad and one good. So, all things considered, the Titans are managing quite a few crises at once. In the final issue of this non-stop rollercoaster of an event, the leading team in the DC Universe will have to act fast to save the world; and their friends, before it’s too late! In this issue, writer Tom Taylor is joined by superstar artists Ivan Reis, Eduardo Pansica, and Lucas Meyer to deliver a great finale to an adventurous event.

As the issue picks up right where its preceding one left off, there are several threats in front of Nightwing: Amanda Waller, Peacemaker, an evil version of Raven, and a majority of humanity are still beasts. This also means there are quite a few threads to wrap up in 48 pages, and the page count seems to work perfectly. As the Titans prepare to strike back and save humanity, there’s a lot of groundwork for them to tackle. Taylor seamlessly interweaves all the threats that have appeared in this event to have them flow into one another. This ends up being one of the issue’s greatest strengths as Taylor has shown how to successfully incorporate various threads and connect them in a manner that doesn’t disrupt or jar the reader.

One of the best parts of the issue is the focus each Titan in particular gets. However, one had arguably a bigger role than others: Donna Troy. Donna Troy has been shown throughout the entire event as one of the only people who can tip the scales. Her strength, wisdom, and heart have continuously been exhibited as a gleaming example of what form of justice the Titans represent. This focus was extraordinarily strategic and well-handled as Donna Troy’s strength has often come in many forms, and this also helps make the event show the importance of the Titans rather than having a Justice League member help save the day. Altogether, the focus on Donna Troy, and other Titans, helps deliver a true event focused on the Titans.

There are a few things that may be unexpected to readers, but each manages to have its own use and flow well enough with the plot. The first regards Nightwing’s interaction with an unexpected player in the story who hasn’t been seen often. Although the decision has its logic and reason, it feels a bit over the top. That said, it’s very possible this gesture will have a future payoff yet to be seen and therefore may have been worth it in the long run. Additionally, the near end of the story makes a shocking decision to affect the fate of one of the Titans who received the most focus in this event. Although the reveal might not be too shocking to many, it detracts from the weight of the event in some ways. However, things aren’t often what they seem, and it’s possible, if not certain, that this will have ripple effects in the Titans series’ future. That said, the event ending with this decision makes the story fall a little flat. Nonetheless, the issue as a whole finds its success in the groundwork it prepares while wrapping up most of its loose ends rather well.

Outside of the multifaceted plots, the other strength of this issue is the spectacular art. Ivan Reis, Eduardo Pansica, and Lucas Meyer are all amazing artists in their own right. However, the three of them play off each other perfectly, balancing action, drama, and an altogether spectacle of an issue stupendously. In addition to the spectacular artists, inkers Danny Miki and Júlio Ferreira work diligently to provide depth and intensity to the story. Another important duo to the issue is colorists Brad Anderson and Romulo Fajardo Jr., who give the issue vibrance and life. The issue’s art is out of this world, and each unique style balances each other out.

Titans: Beast World was an adventurous event that placed the Titans in the public spotlight, both in the universe and on the comic stands. As a cohesive event, a lot happened to the DC Universe, and there will likely be quite a bit of aftermath from this story. Which, at the end of the day, is what makes an event successful. Beast World had no shortage of shocking reveals, high stakes, and riveting action. More importantly, very little of this felt like shock value for the sake of shock value. In its final issue, Titans: Beast World wraps up rather successfully with few criticisms overall. Taylor, Reis, Pansica, and Meyer all worked to deliver an event that was well thought out and valuable in substance.

A trifecta of spectacular artists tackle the final issue of this event
This issue lays the groundwork for the next upcoming Titans stories
The story flows very well and gives each Titan the spotlight
The ending feels a little anticlimactic because it lessens the impact of preceding events
