Outsiders House Ad
In honor of the new Outsiders Special coming out tomorrow from DC, here is a house ad from 1985, when the team was spun off into their own self-titled Deluxe feature, on that oh-so-lovely Baxter paper. I like how it calls out the team as a "proved bestseller." I wonder what their sales figures were like at that point, compared to tiles like New Teen Titans and LOSH, which also got the Deluxe treatment. Might be something worth looking into.
I also like that of the six team members pictured here, only the "new" member (Looker) is apparently not a member of the team DC is running with now. "The more things change" and all that!
