This is Day 21 of my serialized blog about the Rainblo-Batman Custom Comic entitled “Batman: Born on the Fourth of July”, which I pencilled in the spring of 1994. Each day’s post will include the plot outline, the finished script (when I have it), my roughs, and my pencils. I can’t include images of the pages-as-published as I didn’t receive and have never seen them . If anyone reading this has a copy of the published work, please contact me. If you give or sell me a copy, or send me scans of the published or finished artwork, I will incorporate them into future blog posts.
Today I’m discussing page 25.
Not much to say; here’s the shot list.

26) Kid in contact with Liberty Island pipes up- “Hey- I’m getting a message.”
27) CU on laptop screen. “Get over here fast! The main detonator is on top of the cr—“
28) Kids look at screen “He stopped. Wow- he musta got caught” as Batman strides away “I better get over there fast!”
29) 3 kids re being restrained by thugs. Riddler sez “Ooh! I hate Kids. Always complicating things! Catwoman “ Since you kids are so adventurous, maybe you’d like to be in the heart of the action.”
