DC Comics Presents No. 26 is more often remembered as the first appearance of The New Teen Titans, but it also marked the first appearance of Jim Starlin as a DCCP artist.

It’s also an early example of using a sidebar to promote a new book featured inside. A new version sans sidebar is included below.
