Last time, I reviewed an early issue of New Teen Titans. In it, I remarked about some changes George Pérez made over the years. I decided that rather than letting those lie, I would go and see if I was remembering right. (SPOILER: not entirely) The biggest difference is in the Inker. Dick Giordano inks George Pérez in a much different manner than Romeo Tanghal. Giordano was one of the best inkers ever in the history of comics. Whether or not he's better on Pérez than Romeo Tanghal is a matter for debate. However, the heights in the early issues of New Teen Titans were a little different than here. There wasn't much of an extreme as I remembered, but a lot of the difference is in how tall George Pérez draws Starfire's hair. Changeling is definitely shorter, or Cyborg is taller, just based on this issue. Nevertheless, let's get started by reviewing another comic from 1984, an influential year for comic books. This issue marks the start of the conclusion to a subplot that started in the second issue of New Teen Titans, marking a standard for betrayal stories in super-hero comics. Let's look at part one of "The Judas Contract."

There was a lot of criticism to the New 52 version of Starfire. Recently, the character has seen a little redemption thanks to a new series by Amanda Conner, Jimmy Palmiotti and Emanuela Lupacchino. Given that the character has a high profile from her inclusion the animated versions of Teen Titans, it seemed like a re-visit was due to see if the character has been redeemed by her current series enough to be an entry point for younger fans more familiar with her animated counterpart.
Along with their solicitations for Febuary 2016, DC Comics announced new creative teams for three titles. The creators are familiar to DC Comics fans. The new creators are jumping in with what look to be building on what the previous creators have done. This is a refreshing change from previous creative changes that throw everything out and start over as fresh as possible.
Teen Titans continues to be a popular property for DC Comics, but not because of the strength of the comics. As a matter of fact, although the latest issue ranked in the top 50, the most recognizable version of the team remains the animated form currently depicted in Teen Titans Go! The animated form appeals to children and young teens as well as older comic fans nostalgic of the line-up remembered from the the teams most successful period, Marv Wolman and George Pérez's New Teen Titans. Given that Teen Titans: Earth One used a variation of this same line-up, why does the version in the comics differ so much from what most people consider to be the roster of the team?
