Maybe this could lead to a crossover with Batman. You know... Batman and the Outsiders. Hyuk hyuk.

Boy, that's my high school social life in a nutshell. Except for the part where he has a girlfriend.

These romance comics are a riot, aren't they? I wonder why this poor girl doesn't fit in with the others? Is it because she's blonde? Is it because she's not wearing a button-down shirt? I think back to those wonderful teenage years and remember how difficult it could be to fit in, and sadly, the difference between being 'in' or 'out' could truly be as trivial as your hair or your clothes.

Gee... I didn't mean to get all serious and angst-ridden... sorry about that! Let me try to bring a little humor back to the post by pointing out the couple between the two jealous girls... am I seeing them incorrectly? because it looks to me like the couple is in front of the girl in the yellow shirt, but they are both really, really small. Is there a perpsective issue here, or is it just me??

I have one romance comic where the girl on the front cover is hiding behind a tree because of some horrible social faux pas, which turns out to be... she wears GLASSES! The SHAME!

HAHAHA! I never noticed that couple IN FRONT of Miss Yellow Shirt. Little People? Space/Time anomaly? OK, now my head hurts.
