As a crisis looms which threatens to destroy the universe, the line between life and death is crossed as the Teen Titans' deceased members return. Troia arrives to recruit the mightiest members of the team to battle in the Infinite Crisis as Robin is confronted by his predecessor, the bygone Boy Wonder, Jason Todd. The remaining Titans face the onslaught of Brother Blood and the "New Titans West," which includes the corpses of Aquagirl, Omen, Hawk and Dove...

In Life and Death, the crisis hits home. Superboy and all of the Teen Titans Reserve members team up to battle his counterpart from another dimension. In the Titans' bloodiest battle ever, lives are lost, sprits are broken and the team is forever changed.

Old heroes are cruelly brought back to life to aid in the destruction of the Teen Titans and everything that they have fought to protect. Just how much are the Teen Titans willing to sacrifice in order to set things straight? For some the price will be too high.

This collection gathers together stories from #29-33 of Teen Titans, Teen Titans: Annual 1, #146-147 of Robin, and #5-6 of Infinite Crisis. The end result is a collection that is certainly greater than the sum of its parts.

For those that like their superhero tales to contain more that a few surprises, Life and Death will knock you for six. A Teen Titan collection that is so intelligently conceived, so "grown up" in it's outlook, that I'm surprised that it hasn't been showered with awards.
