Is Andre Dawson having a medical emergency? There's no discernible grimacing or lack of muscle control, so that's a good sign. His face isn't melting off, which has happened to more than one Diamond King victim. But that is one giant noggin. Could it be some sort of swelling? More likely, Diamond King Dawson suffers from gigantism. You know, the natural kind, not the Barry Bonds kind.

  1. Perez never fails to amaze with his Liefeld-like anatomical "interpretation". Dawson's mouth is about 500 miles to the right of proper orientation, artistically speaking. ALL of Perez's subjects suffer from bizarre, unfortunate defects, but I just cannot get past the shocking sense of grooming they show. Eyebrows that thin out in bizarre spots, only to get back to fullness right after, or Dawson's disappearing mustache tip on the left side: "I'm just gonna shave this side off, just to make Rick Sutcliffe's back hair angry". Perez, Perez, Perez...
