As I mentioned previously, I’m going through old issues of Daredevil. This invariably means that you’re bound to come across some pretty crazy stuff. Usually, it’s something that has to do with the plot or the dialogue, but every now and then, you’ll stumble upon a nice juicy artist’s goof.
Both of the panels below have art by the legendary Gene Colan (and both are written by Roy Thomas), and both feature Karen Page. Colan was an undeniable genius and is rightfully regarded as a Daredevil legend, but it’s nice to know that even the likes of him can have an off day every once in a while. Or maybe an “off month” as these are from the back to back issues Daredevil #55 and 56.
I will admit that the first example, from Daredevil #55, isn’t so much an outright goof as just a case of weird-looking anatomy. In the right hand corner, is that someone else’s arm Karen has in her bed? Or is she dreaming that she’s clawing someone’s eyes out? Could it possibly be her leg turned upside down with a hand attached? I know, not super weird, just a little “off.” Wait until we get to the next issue though…
At first glance, this panel on the left might not look so bad. Until you notice something odd about it that begs for a second look. And then you count the fingers… My God, the fingers! All six of them!
That’s it for now, I hope you all have a great rest of the weekend!
