The tragic events of the Infinite Crisis tore apart the Teen Titans. Devastated, the group barely held together for the following year, with a rotating roster of over twenty new members. Now, one year later, the core members of the Titans return to heal old wounds and re-form the renowned team, As Robin, Wonder Girl and Cyborg along with interim members Kid Devil and Ravenger embark on a journey to find their former colleagues, they discover that there had been a traitor in their ranks. With the identity and intent of the saboteur unknown, the team must be ready at all times for the inevitable assault...

Since the first appearance of Robin, teenaged heroes have banded together to fight evil and learn from each other... as the Teen Titans. Shattered by the death of Superboy during Infinite Crisis, the Titans are desperately trying to rebuild, with new recruits including the infernal Kid Devil and the dangerous - perhaps deadly - Ravager, daughter of Deathstroke the Terminator. But chance brings them into contact with ex-Titan Gar 'Beast Boy' Logan, and his new team, the Doom Patrol - as they face off against the Brotherhood of Evil.

This is not the place for Teen Titan novices to be introduced to the series. Titans Around the World is pretty heavy going and you'll have to be pretty much up to speed with the universe in order to get the best from this collection.

Those that are will get a huge kick out of Geoff Johns script, and an even bigger buzz from the artwork. There's some pretty impressive fighting sequences here that could have easily failed to grab the readers attention in the wrong hands.

What we end up with is a good, solid collection that will satisfy the hard-core fans.
