When we left Zachary Zatara in the last issue of DC's Zatanna, he was performing his Vegas act and feeling sorry for himself that his more famous cousin was not in attendance. Unbeknownst to Zach, Zatanna had fallen prey to a scheming madman hoping to marry her and trade her soul to a demon! Thankfully, Zach showed up at the wedding just in time!
A passing remark in the heat of battle ignites envy in Zachary;
And the demon thinks he has some leverage with the young magician...
But he underestimates Zach
And, after a suitable end for both madman and demon, Zatanna decides to check out the act of a promising young performer.

The team of J.T.Krul and Nicola Scott debut their version of the Teen Titans this month, and Conner(Superboy)Kent is a central member of the cast! Taking a cue from the previous creative team, Krul again has Conner take notice of a female Titan whom he is not currently dating. This time it's Rose Wilson, while last time it was Aquagirl. Whether it's an editorial mandate to free up Conner for his solo series, or just a desire for more soap opera, a split between Conner and Cassie(Wonder Girl)Sandsmark appears to be inevitable.
Krul continues the storyline that Cassie can't lead the team and be attached, which makes little sense, especially as the position of Titans leader for years defaulted to one of the Robins, with barely a question from any of the members. Cassie's taking it wayyyy too seriously.
Though she does have a point about Conner being back from the dead, it might have more impact if she seemed happier with his livelier state of being.
And they're interrupted when the current Robin indeed does show up! While I'm not yet completely sold on Krul, I'm not sure how much he inherited and how much is his own just yet, so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt for now. However, Nicola Scott's art is, IMO, quite extraordinary, and I hope she stays for a long time!
