This review is from: Teen Titans Volume 3: Death of the Family TP (The New 52) (Paperback)
With this volume being tied to the Death of the Family event it suffers more than most of the titles in being featured elsewhere. With their leader Red Robin taken by the Joker the team travel to Gotham to investigate, in the process teaming up with Red Hoods gang also looking for their kidnapped leader.

The good part of the book sees Red Robin and Red Hood (Robin number 2 and Robin number 3) waking up and attempting to thwart the games that Joker has set up for them. The interplay between the 2 former boy wonders is the highlight here with Red Robin actually getting some character development, it's clear he actually likes Jason Todd and they play off each other well.

All of the above issues were also featured in the Red Hood and the Outlaws Death of the family volume, aside from the a few pages of build up, we then get the Batman 17 issue concluding the arc, and issue that's in all of the Death in the Family cross overs. It ties things off nicely and it's a decent issue. By this point I'd read it in around 4 other books though.

The volume does finish with a setup for the next story suggesting something strange is influencing the titans, but it's only really a teaser

Overall while the content in here is fine, it's mostly something I've already read in the other crossovers which were released 1st. If you don't collect Red Hood there's a lot here for you. If you do, it's not much. Hopefully the 4th book will do something interesting to finish the series on a high as I believe the monthly issues are ending after issue 30 (which would take us to volume 5 collected)

This review is from: Teen Titans Volume 3: Death of the Family TP (The New 52) (Paperback)
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. A second TT issue involves Red Robin and Red Hood struggling with the Joker as part of the big Bat-family crossover, which concludes in Batman #17. The third TT issue sees the team moving in to their new floating headquarters in New York harbour. There are several cutaways to background plot developments, as we see Trigon preparing his daughter Raven for her debut, as well as another mad scientist who is up to something that involves stealing powers from teenagers. There is also a cameo from Professor Hugo Strange, and a super-powered character that I do not recognise.

Issue #0, which leads off the collection, is the `secret origin' of Red Robin.

As I said above, despite being apparently being a random mix of separate stories, everything does hang together very well, and the scripting and artwork is excellent throughout.
