Batman and the Outsiders #14, p.1-6
Back around Christmas, we demolished the Outsiders' first Annual, which was 4th-of-July-themed. That story ended on July 7th with Halo going on the date she was so afraid of missing. And we're on that date as this issue begins. I mention the date because in a few pages' time, the 1984 Summer Games will begin, and it's a matter of historical fact the opening ceremonies were on July the 28th. Keep in mind, then, that all the soap opera stuff unfolds over three weeks in the middle of summer. That's going to be important later. So let's join Halo, boyfriend Phil and his heinous white tie at the end of their date. Warning: Bill Willingham's art in this issue is pretty rough.
