I love that from frame to frame (artist to artist?) the KMFDM logo goes off center to just be “KMF” or some such.

My brain always goes for DOING IT AGAIN.

Maybe the KMF shirts were just ahead of their time. (There’s a song KMF on their latest album.) Probably a result of Zero Hour?

A page from Batman and the Outsiders #27 (1985), the conclusion of the team’s first battle with Kobra. During the story, Halo attempts to “find herself” after learning her true origin: she was actually born an Aurakle. As this page shows, Halo accepts that she is now human and has her whole life ahead of her.

The song “Material Girl” is mentioned in the last panel. IIRC, Mike W. Barr later explained the song reference in a letter column, simply suggesting that Halo is now a (then) modern '80s woman.
