Teen Titans Key Comics List Part 11


We are at the last part to this Teen Titans key comics list. Thank, God! Part 11 definitely has some late Copper Age sleepers and minor keys for sure. 

If you missed the part before this, you can click this Part 10 link to go back. If not, get this on and done with.




THE NEW TITANS #70
1st Deathstroke solo cover

Overstreet Guide notes this as the first Deathstroke solo cover, where I suppose he's featured on the cover without any members of the Teen Titans. Not very well-known at all and very much a sleeper and minor key. 

Fans of Deathstroke may want to consider this one. October, 1990 was when this comic was published.

eBay - No CGC located so far, and only a few unslabbed options available for now.

mycomicshop - Only one VF unslabbed copy in stock at the time of this writing.

NewKadia - All three copies here are in the NM range. Top grade is a NM+. Lowest is a low NM.





THE NEW TITANS #79
Terra revived
1st cameo of Team Titans
 
The character of Terra is revived in this issue, but it is the 2nd Terra. Not the original. She, however, has DNA from the original mixed in with her own and can fully pass as the original, Terra Markov.

This issue also sees the first cameo of the Team Titans, a group from the future who has come back to hunt down Donna Troy. They are shown in the last panel of this issue, and Terra is a member of the group.
 
eBay - No surprise that's there's no CGC copies for this issue at the moment. A few unslabbers are available.

mycomicshop - Only two unslabbed copies in stock. One is a VF and the lowest is a VG.

NewKadia - NM+ copy in stock. Two other copies also there at different grades.





THE NEW TITANS ANNUAL #7
First full appearance of Team Titans
First appearance of Lord Chaos
 
Some weird stuff in this issue, and the story is continued from The New Titans #79. It seems Donna Troy is pregnant and apparently her son in the future grows up to be Lord Chaos, born with the full powers of a god and driven mad.

Lord Chaos ends up ruling the Earth tyrannically for many years, causing The Team Titans to travel back into the future to prevent his birth. Much like the movie The Terminator, Team Titans are out to kill the pregnant Donna Troy. This annual was published in 1991.

eBay - CGC copies...zero! Unslabbed copes...a few.

mycomicshop - VF and a FN copy only at the moment.

NewKadia - Highest copy here so far is a straight NM. There are three other options also at the moment.





THE NEW TITANS #80
2nd appearance of Team Titans

Alrighty, here's the 2nd full appearance of the Team Titans, the group from the future sent back to off Donna Troy and prevent the birth of her son Robert Long. However, they cannot find Donna anywhere, and even worse, Lord Chaos has traveled back in time as well. 

The Team Titans would be spun off into their own titled series. This comic was published November, 1991.

eBay - No CGC copies just yet. Unslabbed copies are present though.

mycomicshop - Only one VF raw copy available.

NewKadia - Only three copies here, but all are in the NM range. Highest is a NM+ and lowest is a low NM.







THE NEW TITANS #83
Deathstroke vs. Jericho

As the cover suggests, Jericho and Deathstroke duke it out, but in this issue we also see Deathstroke stabbing his son Jericho through. It seems that Jericho was possessed by the poisoned souls of Azarath after his last run-in with Trigon.

The souls realize they need new bodies to inhabit and Jericho has captured the Teen Titans to prepare for the transference. Deathstroke in the last panel stabs his son with his sword.

eBay - Limited selection for unslabbed copies. No selection for CGC copies of this issue...yet.

mycomicshop - Just a VF and a FN so far. Both are unslabbed.

NewKadia - NM+, NM, and low NM copies are in stock at the time of this writing.





THE NEW TITANS #84
Apparent death of Jericho

Although the act of killing Jericho happens in issue #83, I suppose it's actually confirmed in this issue since Overstreet notes The New Titans #84 as the death of Jericho. However, we know that it's only an apparent death, because the character does return.

This issue is the last part to the story arc The Titans Hunt. March, 1992 is the publishing date for this comic. Pretty minor key issue and not that sought after.

eBay - Very limited selection so far. No CGC.

mycomicshop - Surprise, surprise - A VF and FN copy here for this issue as well. Only unslabbers and no CGC just yet.

NewKadia - Only two copies here at the moment. Top grade is a NM+ copy, however.



Okay, I'm concluding this Teen Titans key comics list at this part. We have passed the Copper Age of comics concerning Teen Titans key issues.  To be honest, I probably shouldn't have even done a Part 11 and stopped at Part 9, since the ones listed in the last two post are all minor keys and not very sought out.

So there we are. If you'd like to start from the beginning of this key issues list, click this Part 1 link. You can also click the PREVIOUS link to read Part 10 if you didn't already.
