Happy to pair this up with the unpublished [George] Pérez pencils to the Gullivar Jones splash from Monsters Unleashed #8. That job could’ve really benefited from [Frank] Giacoia’s inks, as this house ad shows.
Art from 1974 - 8x10.

We've been reporting this animated adaption since 2006 ... well it's finally coming out - as announced at the San Diego Comic-Con during the Batman: The Killing Joke panel.
Teen Titans: The Judas Contract is Getting an Animated Movie
By Tim Beedle Friday, July 22nd, 2016
It’s long been discussed, but it’s now officially confirmed. TEEN TITANS: THE JUDAS CONTRACT, the popular New Teen Titans storyline by Marv Wolfman and George Perez, will be adapted into a feature length animated film in 2017.
Revealed during tonight’s packed Batman: The Killing Joke World Premiere panel, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract was announced alongside two other intriguing-sounding DC Universe Original Movies slotted for next year.
First out of the gate will be Justice League Dark, an adaptation of the popular comic book series that will bring John Constantine to the world of animation for the first time in a supernatural story that promises plenty of mystery and thrills, along with an amazing voice cast. While Constantine’s world of demons and magic are an important part of the DC Universe, it’s been largely unexplored in DC’s connected universe of animated movies until now.
Teen Titans: The Judas Contract will follow in the spring and will serve as something of a follow-up to last year’s Justice League vs. Teen Titans. “The Judas Contract” debuted in 1984 in the pages of New Teen Titans, when the Titans’ comic book popularity was at its height. Written by Wolfman and drawn by Perez, it introduced the perhaps not-to-be-trusted Terra to the Teen Titans and was the storyline in which Dick Grayson first adopted the identity of Nightwing. “The Judas Contract” was one of the most popular comic book storylines of its year and is continually ranked among the greatest Teen Titans stories ever told.
Finally, the 2017 lineup of DC Universe Original Movies concludes with Batman and Harley Quinn, a brand new, wholly original story from DC animation legend Bruce Timm. The storyline for this one is tightly under wraps, but considering Timm’s beloved style and complete understanding of both these classic characters, fans can expect this movie to be the talk of next summer.
So what do you think, Titans fans? Are you excited to finally see “The Judas Contract” brought to animation? Which of these three films are you most intrigued by? Sound off in the comments below, and be sure to keep your eye here on DCComics.com all weekend long for DC news as it breaks.
If the Wonder Woman by George Perez Omnibus is too expensive for you (Amazon is selling this for $47.75 - a big savings from the retail pricing of $75), DC Comics is releasing a smaller-sized collection called Wonder Woman by George Perez Volume 1 (collecting Wonder Woman #1-14) for $24.99; on sale in late August 2016.
Wonder Woman By George Perez Vol. 1 Paperback – August 23, 2016

One of the most popular artists working in comics over the last 30 years, George Pérez's resume contains a who's-who of the most popular characters in comics.

Wonder Woman's first assignment in this new series takes her to Man's World, to teach humanity the ways of the goddess Gaea--no matter who objects.
This omnibus collects the start of Pérez's acclaimed run on Wonder Woman, presenting a thrilling new vision of the Amazon Warrior, in these stories from WONDER WOMAN #1-14.
