The stories from Teen Titans issues #15-17 are collected, along with issue #0, Red Hood and the Outlaws #16, and Batman #17, as Teen Titans Volume 3: Death of the Family TP (The New 52). The majority of this volume is part of the ‘Death of the Family’ crossover event, which is all collected as The Joker: Death of the Family HC (The New 52). Despite the crossover and the guest stars, this is a very good volume, as the story doesn’t wander too far away from the team itself for three out of the six issues, and Red Robin is the lead in another two, and even with the conclusion of the crossover in Batman #17 included, I felt that it all flowed together and into the ‘coming home’ issue that concludes the collection, despite the differing writers and artists. However, this is the second volume of the Teen Titans that was taken up by crossovers, so let’s hope they get their own comic book back for the next volume, as they are an interesting enough set of characters in their own right.
The basic story for the Teen Titans issues is that Red Robin is missing, presumed kidnapped by the Joker, and the team has come to Gotham City to look for him. They have a contact number for Batgirl, who gives the some possible Joker-related sites to check on, before she goes off to her own appointment with the Joker. They run into a trap laid by the Joker, but the Outlaws show up looking for their missing member, the Red Hood, and a team-up ensues. That takes up one issue of each team’s title.Read more ›
