I remember buying this in a newsagents when I was… nine years old, maybe? Eight? I can’t remember exactly when it came out. I was very excited to get to start a Batman comic from the beginning, even if I wasn’t so on board the idea of Batman falling out with the Justice League in order for it to happen.
My entirely undeserved affection for the Outsiders – and my very much deserved affection for Jim Aparo’s art – both stem from that one experience.
