I am slightly disappointed and underwhelmed with this graphic novel after reading Raven last year. I loooved Raven I thought it was an interesting and new take on Raven's story and was so excited to see where Beast Boy's would go.
However I was left bored and looking for something to pick up the pace. I really hoped we would see more development and higher stakes like Raven's back story but not a whole lot happened to be honest.
I still very much want to read Beast Boy loves Raven which is next on the series because I really want to follow Raven's story further, but this book had it been on its own would have left me ditching the series for sure

Beast Boy is witty, clever and so much fun. Sometimes you're edging Gar on and others you just hold your head in your hands and tell him "Bad Idea Gar" But rooting for him - even in his stupid moments - is never optional.
And now that I've seen the 3rd Volumes Cover, I know I'll definitely be reading it as well. [bc:Teen Titans: Beast Boy Loves Raven|55057926|Teen Titans Beast Boy Loves Raven|Kami Garcia|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1598053308l/55057926._SY75_.jpg|85851631]
Another great addition to the Teen Titans graphic novels. The art, characters, and story were all great and I couldn't put it down until I finished it. I didn't love it as much as Raven, but that's just a personal preference.
Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this eARC in exchange for my honest review.
Flaws of characters centre-stage? It's complicated
I am really digging this series. Can't wait for the next one! Beast Boy was just as good, if not better than Raven. Gar is a relatable teenage boy with some interesting friends. The color pallet and illustrations really bring the story to life. The flashes of bright green (and blue!) really draw your eyes to that panel. It is a super effective technique that was also utilized in Raven.
