I feel like the Gaga reference might be more Queen considering how old the comic is.

Agreed. I was never arguing lol. If u read my entire post I said specifically 𝐒𝐨𝐦𝐞𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞𝐬, -& I even made a point to say not this time tho & you’re (@keath) right??? I’m guessing there was some confusion considering we’re arguing the same point…I apologize if I worded it funny :laughing:…but, we’re both saying the same thing. I was just referencing how (again, NOT in this case) people use the date as a proof positive. If the years songs came out, had to coincide with the year of the comics release, there’d be hardly any. Again, I’m not speaking of this exact scenario…was just touching on a point. In this case, yes, it’s wrong b/c of the year-& even in saying that, I’m not 100% sure, b/c I wasn’t there when possibly someone said- hey, we have the tech now. Let’s change that plain pink shirt to a GaGa T? I’m 99.9% sure that’s not the case. But, too many times people dismiss references just b/c of dates. You can add things later, a comic could be halfway done & something socially impactful takes place, they could easily add it in even tho the date says August the 3rd. They probably worked on it for several months or longer. Nowadays no. But they didn’t have the tools b4. So who’s to say if one artist decided to add that on b4 it was converted to digital. Maybe they were a huge fan & added that in when reconverted? I already agreed that’s most likely not the case, but, I was just speculating over how so many things get dismissed for that reason, & it just sparked a thought in my brain. My apologies if I confused u or us :joy:
