Perhaps it is appropriate that the writer of Detective Comics has uncovered a mystery, and over the weekend, Scott Snyder did just that.
On Sunday he started Tweeting that he had noticed that the same two men had been appearing as background character or extras in all the DC and Marvel comics aimed at younger readers. One guy has red hair, glasses, and chin hair. The other has dark hair and long sideburns, and sometimes a soul patch.
He offered some photographs into evidence. Exhibit A:
Who are these mystery men who have been appearing in the background of all these comics?
And this is apparently not a new phenomenon.
Who indeed. This is so bizarre.
Grab your magnifying glass and your trusty sidekick and let's get sleuthing!
