A few words of explanation.  We know issues #25 at least starts in Summer, and takes place immediately after issue #24, hence the dates above.  Issue #27 takes place in Autumn, and we need to include enough time for Angel to at least have partialyl recovered. Since the difference between issues #26 and #28 is now about two months, we can put issue #26 in the middle.  This has the knock-on effect of making Beast's estimated birth date now the second of November, 1959, rather than the twenty-fourth of September.
