Two of the greatest creators in comics are profiled in a bonus feature appearing in the DC Universe Original Movie TEEN TITANS: THE JUDAS CONTRACT — an arc from the 80’s by MARV WOLFMAN and GEORGE PÉREZ.
With the release of the feature length animated DC Universe Original Movie Teen Titans: The Judas Contract one of the greatest story arcs ever explored comes to life — continuing to evolve the continuity of these popular flicks that have adapted several other milestones from DC Comics. Yet no other storyline ever captured the imagination of its readership like “The Judas Contract” which ran during the 1980’s in Tales of the Teen Titans and concluded in Tales of the Teen Titans Annual #3.
The creators of those books Marv Wolfman and George Pérez are very affectionately and appropriately profiled in a special bonus featurette bundled in with the release of the film entitled “Titanic Minds: Reuniting Wolfman and Pérez — the nearly 30-minute discussions examines the pair’s contribution to comics including Teen Titans, and how they came to become two of the most influential creators in comics. The interview reveals wonderful insight to their relationship and their creative process.
The two lived only blocks apart when they started would on The New Teen Titans and neither had any idea that the book would become a sensation. Wolfman and Pérez not only turned the Teen Titans into one of DC’s most popular books, but would eventually collaborate on arguably the most important book series ever published Crisis on Infinite Earths which rebooted and realigned the entire DC Universe continuity at its 50 year publishing history. The creators reveal how they broke into comics and continued on their winning streak!
Among some of the greatest moments captured during the revelatory interview is the behind-the-scenes leading up to very popular and highly controversial arc for “The Judas Contract” which gave comics fans the first appearance of Nightwing, the origin of Deathstroke the Terminator, Jericho and the most diabolical character ever designed by the pair and the star of “The Judas Contract” Terra.
Teen Titans: The Judas Contract is available now on Digital HD and will be available on Blu-ray and DVD soon.
