Next up for DC Animation is an updated version of a classic. They will finally do the classic Teen Titans story line – The Judas Contract. This classic story line changed DC Comics. It made Deathstroke the ultimate villain, it gave us Nightwing and is responsible for the shift to a dark style within DC Comics.
The Judas Contract was a four-part storyline originally printed in issues #42-44 of Tales of the Teen Titans and concluded in the 1984 Tales of the Teen Titans Annual. The story was written and edited by Marv Wolfman and George Pérez with artwork by Pérez, Romeo Tanghal, Dick Giordano, Mike DeCarlo and Adrienne Roy. Lettering was provided by Ben Oda, Bob La, John Costanza and Todd Klein. All four issues were collected in the 1988 New Teen Titans: The Judas Contract trade paperback. Among readers, this storyline is often times cited as the pinnacle of Wolfman and Pérez’ run on the title. “The Judas Contract” is the culmination of a sub-plot that began as early as New Teen Titans #2 with the introduction of the Terminator and the H.I.V.E.
