So far, “The Lazarus Contract” has been all about speed, so we’re going to jump right into it this week—okay? Make sure that you’ve read TEEN TITANS #8 before you go any further or you might risk damaging the timeline for yourself, and we certainly don’t want that.
If you’re anything like me, “The Lazarus Contract” represents a moment you’ve been waiting for since basically the very start of Rebirth. After all, Rebirth is all about looking at the legacy of the DC Universe and it’s hard to get closer to the heart of the Teen Titans legacy than by looking into “The Lazarus Contract’s” spiritual predecessor, “The Judas Contract”—which is one of the most iconic Titans stories of all time (and also a newly released animated movie).
In this week’s issue of AQUAMAN, H2.0 continues as the U.S. Navy Research base is under attack. Aquaman and Mera must work together with the Aquamarines and Scavenger to save it from an unlikely foe.
During the attack, the group realizes there’s something bizarre about the creature. What other secrets will they find connected to Dead Water? Find out more in this week’s issue of AQUAMAN #20 from writer Dan Abnett and artists Philippe Briones, Gabe Eltaeb, and Pat Brosseau.
Full disclosure before I get started: I love the Teen Titans and all of their extensions beyond reason. The first comic book I ever bought on my own with my own money (okay, it was a quarter from my father), was THE NEW TEEN TITANS #39.
