Batman! Put Your Pants Back On!

The mid-1980's was a time of change for comics. Watchmen came out, Dark Knight Returns was published... well, it's been talked and written about a lot.

Perhaps most shocking however, is the scene from Batman Special #1. Batman knocks a woman unconscious, then is suddenly not wearing pants. His thoughts makes it even more disturbing.

(Yes, I know comics were color separated by hand back then, and his legs probably just got overlooked on the cyan plate. Why you gotta ruin my fun?)

That woman's breasts are achieving heights of pointedness.

Also her hand is very unfortunately positioned. Took me a minute to realize I wasn't seeing Bat-junk.
