    According to JJ’s website blog entry, that @Night-Gaunt49 re-posted here, Robin was meant to have silvery hair, but the instructions to the colorist were lost.

    I thought last weeks rerun was added to allow time for the colorist to get it right, the next time Robin appeared.

    Perhaps JJ changed his mind.

    I wonder if this strip has caused any heart attacks (today or when it was first published) — you know, out-of-shape fools, like me, trying to see how many pushups they can do. ;-)

    Well, according to Wikipedia, only 17 states have at least one. MN had two for thee years or so; but, one is now “extinct” — always thought that meant there weren’t any left, oh well. ;-)

    A somewhat enlarged image can be found at Mr. Melcher’s blog entry (yesterday). Again, it is a cropped image (losing the signature at the lower right). A click-to-enlarge full image can be found here.

    The Bathers is privately owned. It is shown with a different coloration image, and described, by an auction result page.

    As the Lot Notes mention, like yesterday, this is in the Bath series by the artist, the greatest of which was The Great Bath at Bursa (click on image and then again for largest size)


    found here (much longer description). The artist/teacher’s Wikipedia page (Google translated French Wikipedia page has more) and collection (many more under Subcategories at each level).

    Thirteenth, of the 18 works (19 times, so proud of one pseudo-title, he used it again), by this artist, that have, so far, appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog, to also appear here (14 times total).

    My only sibling is an older sister. Gender has nothing to do with it. ;-)

    A somewhat enlarged image can be found at Mr. Melcher’s blog entry (yesterday). Again, it is a cropped image.

    The Harem Bathing is, as far as I can tell, privately owned. A click-to-enlarge, fuller, if not complete, image can be found here.

    The artist used pretty much the same pose and a similar pose in at least 2 other paintings (click to enlarge)

    Didn’t remember it. Just Googled “all we are saying is give peas a chance”. I’m sure it’s not the first time that was used. I would guess that occurred in 1969, shortly after the record was released, mostly by children, too young to understand the words.

    I’m not accusing you of copying anything — that would be like accusing someone of copying the there’s a bathroom on the right misquote of the lyric in the CCR song.



    If you haven’t used that before, I hope my using it here doesn’t keep you from using it in the future.

    P.S. I didn’t mean to type here twice in my first comment — not sure what I meant the first instance to be (saw?) anymore; not that it’s important. ;-)

    If you mean how to embed a link in a comment, that’s explained here (this explains how to embed an image). Like you, I thought of him too, since his death was in the news last week, when I saw his name in the graveyard(?) caption.
