In this collection, the Titans must save Raven's soul from her father, the demon Trigon, and force him to retreat from Earth, which he is gradually transforming.

In its day, this title was the primary market competitor to Marvel's immensely popular X-Men. Unfortunately, I don't think Marv Wolfman's writing holds up nearly as well today as Chris Claremont's does. Despite touching on some mature themes (Raven being the product of a rape, Dick and Kory sleeping together), The New Teen Titans still feels like it is written for juveniles. The most obvious evidence is in the super-annoying Changeling and his constant barrage of bad jokes, but it's there in more subtle ways as well.

The story itself (being what it is) is full of metaphysical nonsense and finishes with a deus ex machina that makes the whole conflict and journey feel unsatisfying.

On the plus side, George Pérez (the hardest-working artist in comics) is at his best here. And there are some good sequences, particularly one where the Titans confront their dark selves, and with them all their worst fears and insecurities.

It's still an okay comic, just not a great one. ( )
