Cloak and Dagger #1 (1985)

Bill Mantlo maintains his chokehold over the Cloak and Dagger characters, and manages to snag Rick Leonardi and Terry Austin for the art.  It’s the art that makes this a worthwhile issue—storywise, Mantlo hasn’t seemed to have figured out much to do with C&D beyond them hurting criminals who hurt kids.  In this issue, instead of drug dealers, they go after child sex traffickers.  There’s nothing wrong with the issue per se, it’s just not breaking any new ground.
