If you missed my discussion of the first Titans Rebirth collection, then you missed me confessing that I love the Teen Titans more than almost anything in the comic book sphere. Just so you know that this is where my bias is coming from.
Alright guys, after four weeks of mayhem and betrayal, “The Lazarus Contract” is coming to a close. Though we may have avoided a complete and total cosmic crisis, the course of not one, not two, but three ongoing books has just been altered, for better or for worse.
This week part three of “The Lazarus Contract” hit the pages of Deathstroke and things are finally starting to fall into place.
...Which may or may not be a good thing for just about everyone involved.
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).
With Rebirth now in full swing and so many exciting new titles to try, we can’t blame anyone for needing a reminder of what happened in the last issue. Or maybe you’re looking to add a new book to your list and need to get caught up on earlier chapters? Either way, we’re here to help.
