Raven has a line in this issue where she tells Stitch that a magic invisibility cloak isn’t meant for sneaking around. I found that both hilarious, and a little stupid. From an in-universe perspective, what else would you use an invisibility cloak for? Perhaps we should ask Harry Potter.

As this series has gone on, we’ve learned bits and pieces about Red X. In this issue, the details air on the sympathetic side. While we still don’t know who it is, that does give this mystery character a bit of a teenage flair. That’s an interesting little twist.

This short stories collection is highlighted by a look at the mysterious Stitch. As I’ve said previously, I think the strength of a teenage superhero book is how well it highlights that teen element. The Stitch story does that, tying into how lonely and isolating high school can sometimes feel. Nice work by Sheridan, who to his credit writes the entire issue.

We also get a charming little outing for Beast Boy and Raven. Teen Titans Academy should first and foremost be about the new characters, i.e. the students. But the classic characters also have their place.
