This panel appears on the eighth art page (not counting ads) of Teen Titans #4, by Scott Lobdell, Brett Booth, and Norm Rapmund.
The way I read it, writer Lobdell is having the first character in that panel comment on how Booth didn’t draw what Lobdell scripted. I wonder how that came about, and why editor Bobbie Chase allowed it. My best guess: there wasn’t time for the panel to be redrawn, or it was decided that it was easier to change the text than the image, or it was left because it wasn’t important to the story (which it isn’t — I wouldn’t have noticed the discrepancy if the dialogue hadn’t called attention to it).
You don’t often see these kinds of quibbles make it to print, with one member of an art team commenting on the work of another. Maybe Lobdell and Booth have a great, long-term friendship where they enjoy jabbing each other, I don’t know. If not, I have to wonder how this will affect that working relationship.
