Man, anything that doesn't fit gets dismissed; kinda takes the fun out of things. Anyhoo, covers matter as much as panels, with the exception of foil variants and the like, and on this cover Batman is obviously meant to be wearing black.
So do you think Penguin called Batman to coordinate outfits or is blue just the fashion du jour?
