Power Pack #13
Issue(s): Power Pack #13
...from setting off explosives that would have prevented a new hitter from breaking up his old record.
The kids have to interfere with the game a bit in order to prevent the explosives from getting set...
...and they make up for it later by interfering again in the other direction.
It's a simple enough story, but it's well written and nicely drawn.
This panel set off my caricature alarms, but i can't recognize anyone except possibly Mike Carlin (in the bottom left with the glasses?). Whenever you see that many shaggy looking dudes, it's probably Marvel creators, however.
Quality Rating: B
Chronological Placement Considerations: Pushed back in publication time a bit to make room for Power Pack dependencies on Thor and Fantastic Four in issues #15 and #16.
Continuity Implant? N

This story was probably a reference to Pete Rose breaking Ty Cobb's hitting record(though if he hadn't broken it by that point, he was really close).
Having Jack shout "Mr. Bates" is a little racy for a kid's book:-)
