    Comic Book Bin - J. Skyler Jan 4, 2013

    Red Robin doesn't have time for an emotional response to the Joker's madness; he only has time to figure a way out of the Clown Prince of Crime's entrapment, and hopefully, prevent his teammates from dying in the process of their rescue attempt. Unfortunately, thought for thought, the Joker is literally one step ahead of him. If future solicitations of Teen Titans are any indication, Red Robin may be the ultimate casualty in Death of the Family. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Jan 2, 2013

    This is the kind of Death of the Family tie in I want to see. The connection to RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS adds credibility to the fact that Joker is taking on everyone at the same exact time. Lobdell and Booth give us a great overall package. The conversations between Batgirl and the Titans is fun and you'll want to see how Joker vs. Red Robin plays out. We're getting more pieces to the puzzle but still have lots of the mystery to what Joker really knows. The surprise appearance of a couple characters at the end (maybe not too much of a surprise) promises that the next chapter of this sub-story will be a blast. Read Full Review

    A very good issue, and I'm happy that Teen Titans is back on track. I would recommend this comic to anyone whether you're getting Teen Titans already, collecting the entire Death of the Family crossover, or just starting to collect comics. I would however warn fans of Red Hood and the Outlaws that this doesn't continue the story from the last RHATO issue, and that of you were getting this issue for that, you may be disappointed.

    Comic Booked - Jeff Hill Jan 3, 2013

    The art is phenomenal. Brett Booth is amazing in just about every frame of this comic and has been the whole series. His Joker is no exception. But I could talk for days on end about my love for this former Image and Wildstorm hotshot. The true strength of this issue and series in general has been the combined dynamic of Lobdell and Booth, which was glaringly absent in this particular issue. But it was still by no means a bad comic. In fact, it was a lot better than most of the books on the shelves these days; it just seemed a bit like a fill in issue. Read Full Review

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Jan 3, 2013

    Teen Titans #15 is a fun read, if not a strong tie-in to "Death of the Family". Yes, the Joker does indeed psychologically torture Red Robin, but he's been doing that to all the Bat-allies, and this meeting didn't seem to have much meaning to it besides informing Tim that his teammates would be responsible for genocide. Why is Joker going after Tim's teammates? Isn't the whole point of his rampage to get at Batman, not Red Robin? It seems like Lobdell and Nicieza are using the transitive property to justify an attack on the Teen Titans. Hopefully, Tim will get that pesky thought-projecting bug taken care of by next issue so Joker doesn't have as much to work with. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Andrew Asberry Jan 2, 2013

    Overall it's a fun comic, but not a necessary tie-in. It's great to see Tim in a suit that doesn't look ridiculous, and Booth's pencils are really terrific to see, but I would've liked this issue to feel Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jan 4, 2013

    But in hindsight, I felt Tim Drake's narration was strong, as was the feeling of teamwork between the Titans. I would like to see them take their place in the greater DC Universe. Maybe a team up with the Justice League? Perhaps they're saving that for a better moment. Or when Teen Titans isn't terrible. And Brett Booth's art was pretty good this issue. So there's that. But otherwise, it's a terrible tie-in to Death of the Family, with some quality Teen Titans segments. Which is probably the most we can hope for with this series. Read Full Review

    The  Like... on one hand, this is fun... great art, some good Joker bits, and fun character interactions. But on the other hand, I wish the Joker would just fucking do something already. Outside of Batman, he's only actually done anything in Nightwing and Batgirl. The little bits of fun don't completely mask the slight sense of boredom that came over me after reading through the issue. Read Full Review

    How's that for a quick review!  This issue was... well, it wasn't horrible!  And for a comic book written by Scott Lobdell in the 21st century, that's about as good as I could possibly hope for.  However, it wasn't anything new or interesting either.  Joker talked to Red Robin a lot, and the Teen Titans got into trouble.  That one sentence sums up this entire issue.  However, Joker didn't reveal himself to be Red Robin's creator, nor did the All-Caste show up, so hey, I'll count that as a win for me!

    Newsarama - Aaron Duran Jan 3, 2013

    Brett Booth's art is a bit dramatic for my tastes, as everyone is always in some form of epic heroic pose. That's all well and good when the scene allows, but on every other page, it becomes a bit tedious. Still, if you miss some of that old-school internal monologuing from Tim Drake, Teen Titans #15 is an OK, if uneven, inclusion in an otherwise tight mini-event. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joey Esposito Jan 2, 2013

    Despite some energetic visuals, Teen Titans #15 is another pointless extension of the Death of the Family story that should be avoided. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Kat West AKA Comic Uno Jan 3, 2013

    This issue is worth skipping. It is very generic and far from the best tie in. If you are reading Teen Titans than you might want to pick this up. But if you are only picking this up because of Death of the Family than I dont think this is necessary for the story arc. Dont pick this issue up! Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jan 9, 2013

    Although Batgirl proves less than helpful (as she tells them, as nicely as possible, to fuck off and deal with their own issues), the team does run into Arsenal and Starfire, seeking out their own member of the Bat Family, as the issue catches up with the final page of Red Hood and the Outlaws #15. I'm so ready for this crossover to end. Hit and Miss. Read Full Review
