Update: This example is probably a misunderstanding on my part. But, I’m leaving it up anyway.
Okay, I admit it. This one is sort of minor. I guess I’m just taking the opportunity to pick on Kevin Smith. Not a big Smith fan… Anyway, below, in the very beginning of issue #4 (vol 2) we see DD talking to Natasha about his recent incarceration (which happened in issue #3) where he was held prisoner in a very spooky white room with even spookier sound effects. Considering what happened to him in that room, it’s a little surprising to see him describe to room by its color.
First of all, would he even know that the room was white? I wouldn’t have found it odd had he referred to it as “bright,” but I don’t really buy that he can sense colors. And, even if he could, something like that would probably be very far down the list of things that would have stood out to him about that room. Wouldn’t it have made more sense for him to have described the room as “the room with hellish synthetic angel shrieks which messed up my head for an hour”?
But I guess compared to some other goofs we’ve seen in this category, this one wasn’t that bad. So, to smooth things over with you my dear readers, I offer you a second goof from this arc, taken from issue #3.
Just after Foggy’s arrest for murder, Matt storms into his office and asks for a paralegal. The guy below, Reggie apparently, comes to his aid. Or does he? Is this a case of the staff playing mean tricks on the blind guy or just a simple case of Joe Quesada (who supplied the art for this arc) confusing his own left with Matt’s?
Although this Reggie guy must think Matt’s hearing is screwy too, because most people, whether blind or sighted, have no problem determining where someone’s voice is coming from. Whatever happened to Reggie, I wonder. He might still work for Razor Sharpe. Who knows?
