At the time, this brutal cover floored me with its intensity.

A lot of people go back and forth on where New Teen Titans, like every long running book with a single creative team, jumped the shark, and while many bring up the addition of Danny Chase (who literally looks like Cousin Oliver!) I always identified this issue as one place. Nightwing and Wonder Girl had an argument that, as sometimes happens, turned incredibly ugly and ferociously nasty, and something of the spirit of the New Teen Titans died then. 

If you read the comic, the interior artist, Eduardo Barreto, had Wonder Girl’s hit send Nightwing through a wall. George Perez, when interviewed, said that while Barreto was a talented artist, he didn’t understand the characters as well as he did. Nightwing would, in Perez’s view, not survive being sent through a wall by Wonder Girl and so he changed it to this on this cover.
