So, not an actual quote, but that’s what Matt should be thinking with regard to the outfit you see below. These panels are from Daredevil #166, co-written by Roger McKenzie and Frank Miller, inked by Klaus Janson and with colors by Glynis Wein. The colorist is too often overlooked when it comes to talking about the artwork in comics, but in this case it’s the color choices that makes me wonder who decided to make Foggy’s tuxedo a not so delightful mix of pink and green. Is Miller to blame or does this one rest solely on the colorist? Either way, the pattern is all on Miller, I’m afraid.
To offer some background, this issue deals with the wedding between Foggy Nelson and Debbie Harris, and the other lovely and equally fashion impaired fellow you see below is Foggy’s old fraternity brother “Porkchop” Peterson. With this hideous tuxedo, Foggy’s marriage was doomed from the start, although it could be argued that “Mike” Murdock could give Foggy a run for his money in the style department. Then again, the guy is blind. What’s your excuse, Foggy?
