Titans: Rebirth #1

   "Buy Titans: Rebirth," they said. "It's the next chapter after Rebirth #1."

   That's true, sort of. But if this is the way the Rebirth issues are going to play out, it's going to be a long slog.

   The spark to the event - so far - has been Wally West, the former Kid Flash and onetime Flash (which he may be again - it's difficult to be sure).

   After his enigmatic return to the real world, thanks to Barry Allen (the real Flash - I think), Wally has gone looking for his former teammates.

   Originally the Teen Titans, those heroes have outgrown the age indicator and just go by Titans. But can Wally make his former best friends remember?

   So apparently the next few chapters of Rebirth are going to consist of Wally going around and restoring the memories of the world before the "New 52."

   It may take a while.

   But don't feel like this issue is indispensable. It's just a reintroduction to the team (now missing Cyborg, Raven, Starfire and Changeling for reasons I'm not aware of).

   It's not a bad issue at all, but it spends a lot of effort and doesn't cover much ground.

   It's going to take more than this to keep my interest in Rebirth cooking.
