A once great concept crashes April 12 2010
By D. B. Killings - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you are a fan of the Wolfman/Perez New Teen Titans era, you will hate this graphic novel. If you are a fan of the character of Jericho, you will curse the very existence of this graphic novel. If you are just a fan of the Teen Titans -- any version, any incarnation -- you will just want to sit down and cry. "Deathtrap" is, by far, the worst story in recent memory to bear the banner of the Teen Titans. It is a crying shame that a once great concept has come down, well, to THIS.

The plot is terrible. Basically, it can be summed up as "Former Titan Jericho goes on a killing spree". A bloody, cold blooded, completely irredeemable killing spree, with the Titans (both young and old) as the targets and many, many civilians slaughtered along the way in brutal, graphic ways. Honestly, this is just about the worst case of "character" assassination you'll ever encounter; anyone familiar with Jericho from the 1980s will find him almost unrecognizable here, and the way DC completely destroys his character is just staggering. I never even liked the character to begin with, but even I thought the way he has been so completely demolished as a hero is just appalling.

The story is co-written by Marv Wolfman and Sean McKeever, but honestly, I think they did little more than flesh out a storyline already handed to them by editorial. The only good part I can think of comes at the very end, where Wolfman's new Vigilante character extracts a chilling (but appropriate) piece of vengeance. But those last two pages just cannot make up for the absolute dreck that precedes it.

Don't bother with this one. If you want a modern Titans fix, pick up Blackest Night: Titans instead. There is no good reason that I can think of to drop coin on this volume.
Hated it Oct. 24 2012
By TheComicKid - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The story was below average in my opinion, there seemed to be no consistency whatsoever with the art or the story.
It seemed as if wonder girl changed her clothes at least three times, the second phase of the art was absolutely terrible. In one issue half of cyborgs face was blown off then miraculously in the continuation of the scene in the next issue it was put back together with hardly any damage. Each issue had a different artist, and the only one that was any good was the first one.
The conclusion was one of the few good parts of this book.

Jericho Returns! April 28 2010
By S. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book collects:

Teen Titans Annual #2
Teen Titans #70
Titans #12-13
Vigilante #5-6

Basically Jericho returns, taking over Cyborg, and still is crazy because of how many people he has controled with the use of his superpower. Vigilante wants to bring him down, but since Jericho was once a Titan, even if he is crazy they still to protect him, but at the same time stop him from the harm he is currently causing. So the whole book circles around that main idea, with it ending with a way to stop Jericho from using his powers.

(Power= look directly into eyes, and control body)

there is also some conflict between Jericho and his sister Ravanger, who is currently a titan, and the events in this story line lead up to her quitting the team.

All in all, a great read, even better for long time Titan fans who remember when Jericho was on the team, but it is still moderatly easy to understand what is going on, even if you are a newbie.
