The High Point For Perez and Wolfman 30 April 2005
By Terence Dollard - Published on
Format: Paperback
Viewed by many as DC's X-Men, the New Teen Titans surpassed their Marvel rival and this book is the proof. Less wordy, better artwork and fuller plots and characters, Wolfman and Perez created something that has not only defined their careers, but has been a benchmark for all comic creators. The story is actually the culmination of 4 or 5 years of Teen Titan comics, starting with #1, but "The Judas Contract" is only the last year or so. Wolfman's writing appealed to his target reader, young adults, as their inner conflicts about fitting in, unrequited love or growing up was reflected in the heroes in the Titans. Looking back 20 years later, it may seem quaint, but it holds up, as does the main action and storyline. As for Perez's art, it is his finest. Not only is he able to create a different, unique look for each character, he was able to do it every month, plus provide inks for the first 3 chapters. It is true that the New Teen Titans never was as good a book afterwards, and near the end was embarrassing for all involved, but how many years did Claremont get out of the X-Men after John Byrne left? "The Judas Contract" ranks just below "Watchmen," "Dark Knight," and "Batman:Year One" as 1980s' DC product, and is still in the top 10 or 20 of all time.

Betrayal, Death, Turning points, and a New Member 8 Oct. 2003
By Very Cheap Nerd - Published on
Format: Paperback
This storyline was the starting point of many changes in the Titans lives.
Wolfman and Perez brought us into the lives of the Titans and showed that they have more problems in their everyday lives than just defeating the bad guys.
Then the real plot comes in. I love the way they have it sneak up on you. They make Deathstroke what he is: The perfact assassin. The leaving of Wally West showed his low self-esteem. Dick quitting as Robin was a major decision that has affected the entire DC world.
The Titans at that time were a team proving their own value and they did it with this stroyline.
I'm not trying to go into too much detail without telling the story so I don't ruin it for new readers.
All Have to say about this book is that once you read it, you will be looking for more Titans books (Trust me, you will)

Format: Paperback
The Judas Contract is the pinnacle of the Wolfman-Perez era of the Titans, thats all there is to it. Action, adventure, betrayal, and tragedy are all enveloped within some of Perez's greatest work ever. I would recommend this not just to any Titans fan, but any comics fan at all, and you couldnt ask for a better introduction to the Titans if you've never been a fan. If you didnt like The Judas Contract, you just dont "get it" and never will. Its easily one of the Top 20, maybe Top 10 stories ever told. Forget Crisis, Identity Crisis, and Avengers Disassembled, if you want an "epic" story arc or an "event", this is it.

Wow...One of the best books I've read, and I've read alot! 24 Aug. 2003
By Johnny Rapture - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is it. One of the greatest stories of all time, and possibly stands as the greatest story to come out of the eighties. The Teen Titans were THE superteam of the era, and this collection was the high point of its run.
Someone has betrayed the group, and one by one they are dismanteled by Deathstroke the Terminator. But this is only after battling Brother Blood, watching Kid Flash (Wally West) leave the team, and Dick Greyson give up the identity Robin.
Marv Wolfman's writing is awe-inspiring in these six issues, and George Perez's art is beautiful. So much so that I am now in love with Starfire. Overall, this is a must read book, not just for Titans fans, or DC fans, but for all fans of comics.

Take that, X-Men 10 April 2014
By tjbender - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Apparently you don't want to annoy Wolfram and Lopez in the way that Kitty Pryde's inclusion in the X-Men did. Their response? Add a bubbly new character to the Teen Titans--one who happens to be an evil little thing bent on killing those she's closest to because, well, I guess they never really get into the because.

Seriously, read this comic. It's the Titans' finest hour.
