You'd be wrong.
To be fair, it did not inspire me to rage uncontrollably, nor did it make me feel like Randall was phoning it in, or reusing a tired, old joke. It just made me feel kind of...apathetic. My reaction was something like that. "What? Batman? What the he-oh wait. Two Face. I guess that's kind of clever." And that was it. The end. In the vocabulary of the online world, it was a very "meh" comic. To me, that's almost as sad as him just making a straight-up terrible comic. Why? Because, this time, it seems like he was honestly trying to make something original, interesting, and funny, and yet all it managed to inspire in me was apathy. I wish it had been terrible, because then I could rage about how much of a shitbox Randall's comic is. Hell, I wish it had been fucking amazing, so I could at least feign outrage and have a good laugh and rail against Randall for not putting out great work all the time while feeding him small compliments throughout the course of the post. Instead, I feel...nothing. I use anger as catharsis, but I have no rage within me with which to...cathart...but the reason this comic - which I really think had a lot potential - fell flat is painfully obvious:
This joke relies entirely on visual cues. Unless the visual similarity between Randall's self-insertion fanfiction version of himself and the actual DC villain Two-Face is uncanny, the joke will lose a lot of its humor. I'm not talking about instant realization of the punchline. I think it's fine for it to take a little while for "the funny" to sink in - delayed reactions can be hilarious if they're properly done. However, such a delayed reaction is only funny - especially in the realm of the visual - if said realization is accompanied by a strong image. Look at the following picture:
Does that look like Two Face to you? Even though the only distinguishing features are a column of red dots near the center of his face (not clearly to one side) and a coin being flipped (that is not two-headed and scratched on one side)? The mass of random dots in the middle of his face remind me more of Rorschach. The simple truth is that Randall did not clearly portray the two most iconic features of Two Face, the very villain about which he was trying to create a joke. I understand that the stick figure is supposed to be looking up and to the side (hence the "centering" of the "pimples"), but with the lack of any other facial features it makes the image less clear, and the joke is further diminished. The fact that I even had to think about why the acne looked like it was centered ruins the joke - if you have to spend time thinking about what the fuck it is you're even looking at, then a joke whose punchline is primarily visual is going to suck.
So, sadly, as good of a joke as this could have been, it is ruined by the fact that Randall is the one who made it. If he had sold this idea off to someone with even a modicum of artistic talent, it might have been funny. Instead, it just falls flat. Thanks for nothing, Randall.
