  1. Interesting that Robin’s costume was changed to pink.

    I’m more concerned with the list of items on sale, and why anyone would shop at a place that sells such things. =)

  2. I can make out Cheed Drink, Month-old (bread?), and something Joy.

  3. Notice that batman parked over that parking spot bumper. That painful scraping noise is in his future when he pulls out. The bottom is gonna get all torn up… What?… I’m talking about the car. What did you think I was talking about?!?!

  4. Cheese drink, yum!

    Robin is Batman’s ex, and is now out being domestic with Superman. And domesticity ain’t pretty.

  5. Strangely enough, this scene was the basis for a good 90 percent of the actual covers of the “World’s Finest” comic book from about 1960 to 1978.

  6. Ha! It’s funny because they’re gay, and the artist is exposing the homoerotic undertones of comics.

    Wait, no . . . it’s just lame.

  7. Huh! I didn’t know that the Glenn McCoy who wrote unfunny, poorly thought out, editorial cartoons, also wrote unfunny, poorly thought out, conventional cartoons too. Truly multi-talented.

  8. What are you talking about. I think it’s funny! Gheeze, look at them, superheros all gone to seed and passing the “boy robin” around. Is it my imagination or is the store rainbow colored?

  9. Cheese drink? Looks like “cheese bonk” to me — whatever that is.
