We lost a legendary comic artist. When I had an opportunity to meet Rich Buckler for the first time at the 2014 ACC, I knew I had to get a commission from him. So I contacted him prior to the show, and arranged 2 commissions. One was the penciled Joker which I have already posted in my Joker gallery, and the second was this one. The concept for this commission was that, George Perez (one of my all-time favorite artists) was going to be in attendance at the 2014 ACC also. I knew that George was mentored by Rich ...

    Star Tribune: Teen Titans Classic Comes to DVD

    Teen Titans classic comes to DVD
    Story line from 1980s gets an update.

        Star Tribune 2 May 2017 By DAVID BETANCOURT • Washington Post


    “Teen Titans.”

    So much time has been spent analyzing Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment’s recent attempts to make live-action movies with their iconic library of superheroes that it can be easy to forget the connected, straight-to-DVD, animated universe they have built over the years.

    It should come as no surprise that this multi-movie animated world is put together well and full of intriguing, entertaining story lines: Warner Bros. animation is involved. From the groundbreaking “Batman: The Animated Series” of the early 1990s to the hilarious “Teen Titans Go!” now on Cartoon Network, DC Comics has always been at its best creatively in the ’toon department.

    WB/DC’s latest movie “Teen Titans: The Judas Contract” (available Tuesday digitally and on Blu-ray) stands out as their best animated effort yet.

    “The Judas Contract,” a Teen Titans story line from the ’80s from the legendary creative duo of writer Marv Wolfman and artist George Perez, is an all-time great DC Comics story, right up there with “Watchmen,” “Kingdom Come” and “The New Frontier.”

    Adapting the ’80s classic into a modernday tale meant making some tweaks. The Titans roster in “The Judas Contract” has been updated, with Damian Wayne serving as Robin the Boy Wonder. While the characters in the movie don’t completely mimic the original story line, enough key ingredients are there to make the movie work well.

    Villains Rising: Deathstroke Special Feature Transcript

    TEEN TITANS: THE JUDAS CONTRACT (Bluray/DVD) (18 Apr 2017)
    Warner Bros
    Here is the transcript to Villains Rising: Deathstroke Special Feature.

    >>>
    MARV WOLFMAN: Slade is a character with very strong moral beliefs. I never thought of him as a villain. I never thought of him as the guy who was going to destroy the Titans. He definitely is a mercenary who has his own ethics. And then suddenly he finds himself in a situation, because of his son, that keeps making things worse and worse and worse. And it took something like his son being killed for him to start going against his own professional ethics by going after the Titans for a more personal vendetta. And we watch this character, step by step, falling deeper and deeper into the abyss. And that's the story, to me, of Deathstroke. A man of honor who finds himself unable to get out of a situation he should never have been in the first place.

    WOLFMAN: Slade is totally a victim of circumstance.

    MIKE CARLIN: Deathstroke, to me, has always seemed like a very honorable villain, and I think that the army instills a lot of that stuff in their soldiers. But in particular, meeting his first wife in the army and having her be involved in his training and her be involved in his enhancements, pretty much set him on the path to be Deathstroke.

    GEORGE PEREZ: He was a soldier. He was a man who acted on duty. Even as an assassin, he followed a contract. He believed in doing his job. I mean, he was like a negative version of Captain America. Captain America was the super soldier. So was Deathstroke a super soldier. Captain America decided to be a patriot, Deathstroke decided to be an assassin. He wouldn't have been hired to go after the Titans if he wasn't the best that he could be. He was somebody who cared very much about doing the right thing but honoring his word as a soldier. He was a big believer in "Your word is your bond," and that, to me, is what Deathstroke's all about. His word is his bond.

    CARLIN: Part of what the Titans are about is they created their own family. They found people that they could be with, who were not necessarily their genetic relatives but who were kindred spirits, and Deathstroke has literally a DNA-connected family that kind of define and put him on his path. Between Grant and then Jericho and even then later, Rose Wilson, they are a big motivation in his backstory for what he does and why he does it and why he's relentless, because he sees them as legacies that he wants to actually perpetuate. When a group called the H.I.V.E. approached him to kill the Titans, he turned them down.

    Slade said, "Look, my son can do it and if there's any problem, I will protect him." And instead, his son gets killed. So Slade, to honor his family, to honor his word, that he would always have his son's back, he had to take on a job he didn't want because this isn't his fight, but he's made it his fight. That's why I don't see him as a villain, I actually see him as a victim who simply does not know how to get out, to make it right, and so he sinks into this pattern of trying to kill the Titans but he doesn't really want to but he has to. I think Marv, from the very moment he conceived the Teen Titans, knew that he did not want this to be a juvenile book. So he wanted to do themes that were sometimes a little harsher, more sobering, without pandering. Deathstroke was created to be older. I didn't like the idea that all villains were also about the same age as the heroes or, you know, equivalent adults. We gave him the white hair. I wanted something very different because that would give a different type of credibility to the villain, and also say that he's had many years to do what he's done. It explains why he's good. I think the fact that there was a romance, or certainly a use of each other, absolutely set up who these characters were and in ways that we hadn't seen before and as far as I know, may not have seen since. But it so defines the characters in so many ways. She's a psychopath, she's crazy. He's not crazy, but he's finding himself being drawn in by her.

    I'm assuming a lot of readers did not get it because they were too young. I do believe that you don't see things you don't understand. And I'm sure the more adult things in the Titans did not get noticed by the kids. It's always been my belief that you have to take these outrageous-type characters, bigger-than-life characters, and make them feel real because you're going to be asking the reader to accept so many incredible things that they can do. If they don't feel these characters are actually real to some degree, they're not going to care about these larger-than-life events. Slade has got to constantly remind himself that he's a person. He has to constantly remind himself what is right and what is wrong and, of course, that just destroys him when he realizes he's now out to destroy the Titans, people who he doesn't even care about, and that goes against every real emotion that he has. The more real the emotions, the more real the readers will believe these characters to be.

    PEREZ: One of the things about Deathstroke, and I think any good villain, is that they themselves don't think of themselves as villains. They justify what they do. They have their own code. In his case, he was doing his job, and Deathstroke always justified what he did.

    To him, he's a good guy who found himself being challenged because he said, "Yes" when he should've said, "No." He is the hero but he also knows that he's failing. And that's why he gets more and more desperate, and that challenges his "I am the hero of my own story," because he no longer is.

    CARLIN: The thing that I note about the characters that last a long time is that they are flexible. And they are flexible in terms of their character. They're flexible in terms of how they can fit into a story.

    You know, Batman, he's been done comedically, he's been done grim and gritty and everything in between, and he endures because he's a flexible character in that respect. And I think Deathstroke as a villain is the same.

    PEREZ: A character that I didn't expect to be much more than a few issues and that was it, has now found life three and a half decades later as one of the major villains of DC Comics. I never would have expected that. So I'm just grateful that at the time in the 1980s when we did the Titans, when we did The Judas Contract and all those stories with the character, that it left enough of an impact to keep it alive.

    Arthur Conan Doyle probably never expected that Sherlock Holmes would still be having movies being made of him to this very day, with modern twists and changes as well, but keeping the essence of Sherlock Holmes. And I think we've been lucky enough to get that with Deathstroke and the rest of the Titans.

    IGN's Teen Titans: The Judas Contract review

    >>>
    From ign.com

    Compared to rigidly faithful adaptations like The Dark Knight Returns, The Judas Contract is a pretty loose take on the source material. That's probably for the best, honestly. That storyline came in the middle of a lengthy run by creators Marv Wolfman and George Perez and built on a great deal of continuity that simply isn't in place in this particular animated universe. The problem with this adaptation, though, is that it still attempts to cover too much ground. The 80-minute run-time simply isn't enough to do justice to the various plot threads or flesh out the main characters to the degree they deserve. Brother Blood comes across as your textbook supervillain in search of absolute power. Much of the drama involving Blue Beetle's homesickness and the Nightwing/Starfire romance feels tacked-on and poorly developed. Very little is done with the always enjoyable Dick Grayson/Damian Wayne dynamic.

    World Premiere of Teen Titans: The Judas Contract at WCA 2017!
    Posted on Mar 13, 2017

    Warner Bros. Home Entertainment continues its annual WonderCon tradition with the premiere of Teen Titans: The Judas Contract, the next DC Universe Original Movie, on the evening of Friday, March 31, 2017 in the Arena of the Anaheim Convention Center.

    Teen Titans: The Judas Contract will screen at 6:00 PM in the Arena, followed by a panel discussion featuring Sean Maher (Firefly/Serenity, Batman: Bad Blood), the voice of Nightwing; Taissa Farmiga (American Horror Story) as Raven; Jake T. Austin (Wizards of Waverly Place, The Fosters) as Blue Beetle; Brandon Soo Hoo (Tropic Thunder, From Dusk Til Dawn: The Series) as Beast Boy; Kari Wahlgren (Phineas and Ferb, Legion of Superheroes) as Starfire; and Stuart Allan (Batman vs. Robin, Batman: Bad Blood) as Robin/Damian; plus director Sam Liu (Batman: The Killing Joke), supervising producer James Tucker (Batman Bad Blood, Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders) and character designer Phil Bourassa (Justice League Dark, Young Justice). Additional panelists will be announced as confirmed.

    Inspired by the 1984 DC story arc from Marv Wolfman and George Pérez, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract finds the Teen Titans—Starfire, Beast Boy, Raven, Blue Beetle, Robin and the just-returned Nightwing—working as a cohesive team in their never-ending battle against evil. But their newest teammate, the mysterious and powerful Terra (voiced by Christina Ricci), may be altering that dynamic. Meanwhile, an ancient evil, Brother Blood (Gregg Henry), has awakened, and familiar foe Deathstroke (the late Miguel Ferrer) is lurking in the shadows – both waiting to pounce. Ultimately, the Teen Titans will need to battle their enemies and their own doubts to unite and overcome the malicious forces around them in this twisting tale of intrigue, adventure and deception.

    An encore presentation of Teen Titans: The Judas Contract (without an accompanying panel) is slated for Sunday, April 2 at 3:15 PM in the Arena.

    Last week George Pérez and I met in Burbank to talk about the making of The New Titans' "Judas Contract" four part story. They filmed us for nearly 5 hours talking about how we put it together and what it meant to us. After our conversation, George did a solo interview while I head over to DC and then back home. Yesterday, I returned to Burbank for my solo interview, talking not only about the Judas Contract, but also Terra as well as a separate interview about Deathstroke. I'm not sure where all of this is going to appear, but most of it will be on the DVD/Blu Ray for the Judas Contract animated movie which I think comes out sometime this summer.

    Please note I haven't seen the movie or know anything about it (so don't bother fishing for info) but George and I were certainly capable of talking about the making of the original comic. Hope you like it when you see it. By the way, George and I will coincidentally be at several cons together this coming year. The first of which is in Los Angeles the beginning of January, but we have many others, too. I'll announce all cons before they happen.

    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.

    Wolfman/Perez's Teen Titans DVD, "Back On"

    Making Sense of DC's Film Projects (or trying to)

    A common complaint, fair or not, among comic book fans is that DC Comics are more confusing than Marvel Comics.


     TEEN TITANS: THE JUDAS CONTRACT DVD(2010)

    Without indulging that argument, it’s undeniable that at the moment the upcoming slate of Marvel Studios films is much, much less complicated than Warner Bros. films based on the “distinguished competition” currently in development. Since May and Iron Man’s nearly-$100 million opening weekend, Marvel Studio’s schedule has been nice and tidy - Iron Man 2 and Thor in 2010, Captain America and Avengers in 2011, with films like Runaways andAnt-Man also in the mix.

    Teen Titans

    Okay, if Warner Bros. has decided to build a Justice League movie from solo movies on up, what does this mean for the Teen Titans movie, announced in May of 2007?

    Akiva Goldsman and Kerry Foster were attached as producers through their Weed Road banner, and Mark Verheiden was attached to write the script. As recently as April of this year, Verheiden spoke about the project in the present tense, in fact, describing it as "back on". The writer revealed he had turned in a draft to Warner Bros., which would feature Nightwing and Robin, would be very faithful to the Marv Wolfman/George Perez iconic run of the comic book, and described Warner Bros. as "absolutely committed" to doing the movie.

    Though he has received top accolades for his dramatic work, Goldsman is no stranger to the world of comic books and masked avengers. He wrote 1995�s Batman Forever and the 1997 follow-up Batman and Robin, and is currently producing Warner Bros.� Will Smith superhero pic Tonight He Comes. His Weed Road is also developing films based on the DC Comc properties Doom Patrol and The Losers.

    In addition to writing and producing episodes of the Superman-themed Smallville television series, Verheiden has written installments of the Superman, Aliens and The Phantom comic books, and co-created Dark Horse Comics� Timecop with Mike Richardson.

    Warner Bros. Developing 'Teen Titans' Comic 
    Posted May 31st 2007 1:01PM by Christopher Campbell

    (excerpt)

    For anyone disappointed that Robin has been left out of the recent Batman films (I hope you are few), there is good news: Warner Bros. is developing a movie version of the DC comic Teen Titans. Robin is one of the original members of the young super team, and though he has not always been part of the group, it is certainly a possibility that he'll make it into the movie -- if only because of his familiarity to mainstream audiences. The Hollywood Reporter does report that Nightwing, a character who is sort of like an alternative version of Robin (he is the older incarnation of the original Robin, Dick Grayson), is already a definite character. However, because the continuities of DC Comics confuse the dickens out of me, I really have no idea if Nightwing and (the more-recognizable) Robin could both be a part of the movie's team.

    NRAMA: Are you still working on the Teen Titans: The Judas Contract cartoon?

    MW: I just finished it.

    (excerpt)

    NRAMA: Do you suspect it will be less anime influenced?

    MW: I don't believe art designs have been done but what I've always been told was that this was going to be done straight. But I loved the Cartoon Network version of �The Judas Contract�. I thought for a show aimed at eight year olds, they did a story that an adult could watch and not at all be insulted by. We are aiming for a PG-13 audience so hopefully we're going to be able to do all the emotion that they did and more, but also make it closer to the original comic.

    NRAMA: Is George Perez involved in any capacity?

    MW: He was originally going to be art designer for it but he is so busy that he's not going to be able to. But I believe we're still going to be using his design from the comic as the basis.

    There's some good news afoot for Teen Titans fans, but it depends on your point of view. As a fan of the TV cartoon rather than a comics aficionado, I have mixed feelings. On the one hand, I really loved Trouble in Tokyo and would be happy for a who slew of Titans movies in the same vein. It's great entertainment for the whole family. On the other hand, I'm intrigued.

    Oh, Toy Box Mommy, you are saying. What in the world are you talking about??

    Whoops. Would that be helpful to this discussion? I bet it would. My bad.

    Written by Marv Wolfman and Tom DeSanto; executive produced by Sander Schwartz and Gregory Noveck

    THE DISH
    For everyone who was a fan of the hit Cartoon Network series, this is not for you. For everyone who liked the show but wondered where characters like Kid Flash, Wonder Girl, and others were in the original cartoon, this is more up your alley.

    Based on the story written by Marv Wolfman and George perez, Teen Titans villain Destroke the Terminator sends a spychopathic metahuman named Terra to infiltrate the team to gain access to their secret identities so he can capture them.

    "I love the original story," explains Wolfman. "This is one of several Titans stories we did early on that deserves to be a movie."

    Wolfman admitted to having a fondness for hte original Dethstroke stories, the Terror of Trigon and the Titans story set on Starfire's home world.

    Co-writing and Wolfman will be Tom DeSanto, producer on the "X-Men" and upcoming "Transformers" films. Perez will contirbute all-new character designs, and the team will feature the classic lineup of Wonder Girl, Changeling, Cyborg, Raven and Dick Grayson, who will make the transition from Robin to Nightwing.

    In the meantime, it looks like this version of the Titans will be going on vacation with Murakami. When asked about their future he said there may be some possibilities of more DVD movies, but nothing is certain. He also isn't likely to work on the upcoming Judas Contract DVDheaded by Bruce Timm.

    "That's a difficult question to answer," he admits. "I really like what we did with the Titans, I always say that we combined the Bob Haney/Nick Cardy version with the Marv Wolfman/George Perez Titans. I worked so hard to create a different version of the Titans I might not be the right choice to work on the Judas Contract.

    "[Besides] I think the fans want a 'faithful' interpretation of the Judas Contract. I think a lot of the die-hard fans felt our series was too Anime or skewed too young. I understand how they feel about the show but we were trying to appeal to a younger audience. I grew up reading the Wolfman and Perez Titans so I understand what they want."

Future films include an abridged "Death of Superman" story featuring Doomsday and "The Judas Contract," based on the classic Marv Wolfman/George Perez "New Teen Titans" epic storyline. Each of the films will emulate the art style of the comic books they're based on.

    [Paul] Levitz discussed DC's direct-to-DVD series of animated films previously announced at Comic-Con International, the first of which will be a "New Frontier" movie based on Darwyn Cooke's 2003 - 04 story. Future films include an abridged "Death of Superman" story featuring Doomsday and "The Judas Contract," based on the classic Marv Wolfman/George Perez "New Teen Titans" epic storyline. Each of the films will emulate the art style of the comic books they're based on.

    When asked by a fan if Frank Miller's "Dark Knight Returns" might receive the animated treatment, Levitz said it's possible, but would "depend on Miller's schedule." Miller is currently in pre-production for "Sin City 2," which he will follow up by writing and directing a film based on Will Eisner's "The Spirit."

     TEEN TITANS: THE JUDAS CONTRACT DVD(2007)
    �The Judas Contract movie will be closer to the original comic than even the show [Teen Titans] was, and the show was very faithful to the spirit of the original,� Wolfman told Newsarama, asked how the movie will be different from DC animation series in the past. �I loved what they did but I'm hoping we can be more adult in the handling of this story.

    �Whereas the Titans cartoon show was obviously aimed for kids, this is not being aimed at the youngest kids as it will contain mature content. It will be closer to the original comic but hopefully even stronger as we'll have actors, which means we'll be able to do some more subtle material. In comics you have to make readers read the dialogue as you want them to, but of course that's impossible. Here we can have those little verbal moments where a simple �grunt� or �sigh� or sound can replace paragraphs of prose. Because it's a different medium, we alter the way we tell our stories, playing to this medium's strengths as George and I tried to do with the original, playing to the strength of comics.�

    �And yes,� Wolfman added, �Tom [DeSanto] and I intend for the �nightgown and cigarette" scene to be there.�

    Teen Titans: Written by Marv Wolfman and Tom DeSanto, with input from George Perez, this film focuses on the '80s version of the Titans. Though the specific storyline was not confirmed, DC used the cover of the Judas Contract (one of the best Titans tales of all time) during the announcement.

    "This is just the beginning," Levitz assured. In fact, DC want to hear from the fans as to what stories they'd like to see. Levitz stressed that the series was for the fans and would retain the core essence and look of the original tales. The audience shouted a number of possible stories. One, however, earned a promising response from Levitz. "The Dark Knight [Returns], we have talked about."

    The voice talent has not been finalized for these films. DC is not yet certain if the same actors will carry over in the same roles from one film to the next.

    As DC Publisher and President Paul Levitz announced at Saturday's DC: One Year Greater panel, DC and Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Home Video are looking to enter the direct to video marketplace in a big way, with three upcoming animated movies: New Teen Titans: The Judas Contract, Superman/Doomsday, and The New Frontier.

    Bruce Timm will oversee the projects, and each will be faithful adaptations of the original stories, carrying over the stories as well as the art styles from the comics. As such, Darwyn Cooke, Marv Wolfman and George Perez were all announced as helping with the adaptations.

    Shortly after the announcement, we sat down with Levitz to talk about the new deal, and learn a little more about the larger picture.

    (excerpt)

    NRAMA: In that vein, as you said at the panel, the different features will be similar in style to the art that's in the original comics? 
    Paul Levitz: That's the goal, and it's certainly the reason to have George and Darwyn involved. With New Frontier, Darwyn's an animator by trade, so like Marv on Titans, he brings with him a very powerful knowledge of how to translate his own work. Animation's not the same thing as comics, so there are certain translations to be made, but I think you will feel the richness of Darwyn's work come through.

    Working with Warner Bros. Home Video and WB Animation, the company will launch a new line of direct-to-video DC animated movies that are being designed with DC Comics fans in mind, Levitz said.

    ...The third title in the series will be an animated version of the classic story Teen Titans story �The Judas Contract�, written by Marv Wolfman. Tom DeStano (X-Men) will join Wolfman as co-writer and producer on the film.

    "This is just the beginning," Levitz said. "We're sitting around and thinking of more...so send all your suggestions in."

    Levitz also added that George Perez will be working on the animated Judas Contract as well, and that Bruce Timm will be overseeing all the animated films.

    "We�re looking at more than the last five minutes of history," Levitz said in regards to what will differentiate this from movies such asUltimate Avengers.
