In the wake of the devastating death of Troia and the disbanding of Young Justice, Cyborg thinks it's time to get back to the basics. Joining him are Starfire and Raven as they decide to mentor those surviving teens - Robin, Superboy, Impulse and Wonder Girl. While the reluctant heroes come to hear the game plan, Deathstroke arrives on the scene and threatens to derail Cyborg's dream. Are these champions ready for the deadliest mercenary on Earth? And what secret is Deathstroke hiding...

You're going to need a little bit of history to get into A Kid's Game. Thankfully that is provided... sort of. But this may not be for the Teen Titans novice - so much has gone before and it would be easy for you not to pick up the pieces as you go.

If you are familiar with this series however, you are in for a treat. This collection reads and looks the business. It also includes guest appearances by some of the JLA's finest (Superman, The Flash and Wonder Woman.)

By far my favourite character is Beast Boy. This little green teenager can change into any creature he wishes too. Okay, his origin may be a bit naff - he was bitten by a green, and very rare, green primate - but he is pretty cool.

There are also some background info on each of the main characters, as well as some pages of rough sketches and finished covers.

A Kid's Game is a neat little package with an unbelievable cheap price tag.
