Batman and the Outsiders #13 - Critical Analysis

It's coming...
Summer is well upon us, and to fight the heat, the SBG presents a whole new, lovingly over-critical look at an issue of Batman and the Outsiders, an Anniversary issue, as it turns out. Starting next week, 3-4 posts a week will be devoted to "In the Chill of the Night" until it runs out of pages. From the cover, we can look forward to...
-If you remember from our last foray, issue #12 ended with Batman dead or dying from poisoning. Will the Outsiders get to the States in time to save him, or will they lose him in a ditch somewhere?
-Geo-Force not seeing what's right under his nose and the reason everyone hates him now revealed to be because he let Batman die!
-Black Lightning becoming the de facto leader no one listens to!
-Batman waking up to uncover a cable-stealing scheme in an apartment building!
-Halo sniffing her pits and finding teenage hormones can be stinkier than anticipated!
-The teased possibility of this being their LAST anniversary (spoiler: no such luck)!

Some of these MAY WELL HAPPEN. Place your bets before Monday when this whole wild ride back to 1984 begins. And no one's safe. Especially not writer Mike Barr.

Did you see the first episode of Beware the Batman? Because that show's clearly a stealth Outsiders show, with Katana and Simon Stagg showing up and Tobias Whale mentioned in the pilot.

No, and I'm not likely to. Don't think I have the relevant channel, and hated the trailer's look.

Rex Kidd said...

Yeah, tell me about it, the pilot was pretty weak. The Outsiders angle is the only thing I find interesting about the show.

Batman vs. the cable-thieves? After the apocalypse, it will serve as Shakespeare to our poor descendants.

A time when the only literature left is B&TO? The horror... the horror...
