The Titans during the Crisis March 23 2007
By N. Durham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Tying up some loose ends during Infinite Crisis, Life and Death focuses on the Teen Titans during the cataclysmic event. Many old, dead Titans are back from the dead to terrorize the current incarnation of Titans, of which Cyborg and Starfire are in space with Donna Troy and Kyle Rayner, while Kid Flash is MIA. Not to mention that current Robin Tim Drake goes toe to toe with past Robin Jason Todd, and Tim doesn't walk away any better for it. In the meantime, Superboy gets his butt handed to him by the psychotic Superboy Prime, and he and Wonder Girl enjoy their last moments together before he makes his final stand against the fallen Earth Prime hero. There's more than a fair share of confusing elements taking place in this Teen Titans TPB, which combines various issues of other series as well. Hence the uneven feel between each chapter in terms of writing and artwork, but while there's nothing bad to be found here, there's nothing really substancial either. If you are on an Infinite Crisis spree and need everything leading up to and involving DC's mega event, than Life and Death is worth picking up. If not, it won't kill you not to have this in your collection.

mediocre Dec 18 2007
By adead_poet@hotmail.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It's a shame this book is so mediocre, it has some of the best heroes of the next generation--Superboy, Robin, Wonder Girl, and many of the others are somewhat interesting, and it is tied into the Crisis (which I'm starting to think might not be as big or great or necessary as DC thinks it is), but it was all over the place, which probably comes from being a collection of multiple different titles. Even one volume from INfinite Crisis is in here, and a middle volume at that, but there is no way of knowing when you've crossed into that. I think the problem with this book is that they just threw a bunch of stuff together.

Crisis Infinite meets the Titans's Sept. 16 2006
By Chowii - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Another Infinite Crisis crossover. Read the final battle of Superboy!

Ok...I guess I'll be the 1st to review this tpb collection. This tpb collects TEEN TITANS #29-33, TEEN TITANS ANNUAL #1 and ROBIN #146-147 and INFINITE CRISIS #6. Here are the following story arcs in the tpb:

Jason Todd sneaking into the Titans Tower and confronting Tim Drake, the current Robin. They duke it out to see who is the better Robin. Tim gives his best shot, but in the end, gets beaten by Jason, who is more skilled and ruthless than Tim.

The live Teen Titans confront the deceased Teen Titans. Huh you may ask? Seems like dead superheroes don't wanna stay dead. Raven and Beast Boy and the rest of the living Teen Titans must find some way to ensure the dead Teen Titans are indeed dead. I won't spoil it for you, buy it and read it!

Superboy Prime confront Superboy of the Teen Titans, Conner, and beats Connor to a bloody pulp

Robin and the some of the Titans must retrieve some serum that will save Superboy life. It is stored in a secret bunker created by Lex Luthor to conduct cloning and other weird experiments. After battling their way through the bunker defense and experimental creatures gone awry, they are able to ascertain the much need serum to save Superboy's life.

After Superboy is cured, he goes back to Smallville with Wonder Girl to discuss their feelings and review his life. One thing leads to another and he finally bangs Wonder Girl...lucky dude!

Superboy and Nightwing join forces to thwart Alexander Luthor JR's attempt merge Earth 2 and Earth 3. Conner and Superboy Prime meet in final showdown in which only one Superboy walks away alive. Take a guess which Superboy lives and which one dies...hint to both Marvel and DC...no more stupid cloning of major Superheroes...1st Spider-man and then Superman. Then they both die and come back to life...see Spider-man The Other for the death and rebirth of Spidey.

Well that's the synopsis of the major arc in this tpb. If you've been following the Identity Crisis and Infinite Crisis, you'll better appreciate the collected stories here. If not, you'll surely be confused here.

Overall the book is an interesting read, some of the arcs just drag on. You get some great art and then some bleh art, especially the part in which Robin and the Titans are retrieving the serum to save Conner (Superboy) life. The artwork is damn ugly.
What we learn from this tpb is that Tim Drake needs more training from Batman in order to take on Jason Todd. No more cloning of major heroes, and no one in comics ever ever die! See Superman, Spider-man, Green Lantern, Jean Grey, Donna Troy, and Green Arrow etc. Too bad Lincoln can't be brought back to life run the Whitehouse. Nuff said!

Oh yeah, at least Conner got lucky before going off to fight Superboy Prime. That Wonder Girl is so easy. In current New Teen Titans comic run, she and Robin are now hooked up!! Is this the kiss of death for Tim Drake? Time will tell...oh wait...I think no one ever dies in comics!
Wait? What happened? Feb. 9 2013

Don't get me wrong. I love this set of Titans. And the story here was even magnificent when it picked and you knew what was going on. But is it just me or are there so many gaps in this story. You have a huge gap between the last volume and this one where apparently Donna Troy and Jason Todd came back and Superboy lost control and quit the Titans. There are also long periods where characters are just missing. But like I said, whenever the story picks up and you know what's going on, its still worth reading.
A huge mess Jan. 22 2012
By Mark McLaughlin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I only give this two stars because the artwork is decent and somewhere in this mess there was a story I could semi-understand when read in the context of the larger actions occurring within the DC universe. Overall I would avoid this though, sloppily written, panels that make no sense to each other and a poorly edited collection.
