So, I was reading Detective Comics #487 and was checking out the Robin solo story. Here, we find Robin in a typical Robin-style quandry:
Okay, that's fine. No problem. Until this:
And then this:
Now, I had to read this a few times to figure out what the heck was being used as a dummy leg here. I mean, Batman teaches you to be resourceful and all, but I can't imagine anyone toting around a nine foot leg.
So, it finally occurs to me that Robin isn't wearing his cape in that last panel, so it must be his cape.
You know, his bright yellow cape.
His bright yellow, not even remotely the color of the flesh of any human being that has walked the Earth, now or ever.
Well, clearly the colorist is cheating and making Robin's cape flesh-colored for these two panels, which constitutes clear shenanigans. I realize that a bright yellow leg wouldn't have fooled anyone, so he probably felt obliged to fudge a little to make it more believable. But, seriously? That needs to go back to the artist to make changes, because there is no salvaging that with color swatches.
Oh, comics. I love you, yet you treat me this way.
But then I read something like this:
Ahhhh. Thanks, Action Comics #104!
I'll see you tomorrow!
