The man wasn’t just sporting red-framed glasses, blue hair, and yellow face paint—he was also reading a copy of Radioactive Man that appeared to be made by hand. On the back cover: an ad for the Itchy and Scratchy Show. He was fully in-character, like Daniel Day-Lewis learning to make dresses before playing a dressmaker.
