    On page two, one of the corner braces of the side table getting knocked away has disappeared between panel one and two.

    I thought the gutter scene looked just fine, though.

    In episode 54, 'Kady drops Kait into the Thames from across the room; and in episode 55 she 'ports her back again. Whereas in episode 83 she says, "I can't jump with you unless we're touching". Maybe she can just 'jump' KK then, without jumping herself?

    Sorry, but if that's a boot then my leg is a length of guttering. It's quite hard to walk.

    Ah! Thanks. when I spotted that I felt like I was doing one of those "spot the difference" puzzles XD
    I've marked it for correction.

    Good point. Uh... Warren? Oo

    Paul - I know it's a 'gutter angle' ... a poster thought it was a boot to KK's head.

    I'll get to it.

    Yeah, I read that post. Out of interest do you agree or were you just reporting the possibility? I really don't think too many people are going to be seeing a boot in place of guttering there.

    Just reporting the possibility - I've no problem with your art.

    It's not clear that she doesn't touch Kait in episode 54; she does reach out off-panel, and it doesn't look like a very big room. Maybe, having 'ported someone with a touch, she can 'port them without touching for a short time afterwards?

    An architect's opinion on mistakes within the comic, hopefully not overly pedantic.

    In Book Three, episode 053, pages 3, 5 and 6, the battery posts are drawn as if arranged on a flat surface, yet the top of the bin also presents some quite deep grooves. The resulting effect is quite disconcerting and it's made worse by the angle of the texture used on the lid, which actually accentuates the apparent depth of the indentations. This optical irregularity is especially noticeable on page 6, where we have a close-up on said contraption - I took the liberty of correcting it in the image below:


    From a professional point of view, the very distinctive watchtower and sky garden (well, probably not the garden- those water tanks and dirt bins are heavy, after all) would have been blown away by the first storm, because of the flat, continuous floors that would have offered wind an ample surface against which to push. In fact, that is the main reason most similar real world platforms are made using perforated panels, to alleviate some of the environmental pressures on the structure - (wind, rain, snow, etc). Not to mention the fact the chipboard pieces don't seem to be attached to anything and are just resting there gravitationally.

    Another interesting effect I noticed is how the watchtower structure seems to be getting thinner as the story progresses - in Book One the support struts were a bit overkill - metal is structurally very strong, and beams that size can fully support a warehouse roof and a few tons of snow, while the whole thing is swaying in an earthquake... That , of course, if they are properly fastened together, which doesn't appear to be the case - the beams (which are very heavy, I might add) are just casually lashed together... By book three, however, the structure has become somewhat more believable - the beams are thinner and incastrated in the roof of the church below. One thing I don't really understand, though, is why the look-out hasn't made use of the already existing church tower staircase to get half-way up the watchtower, instead of using all those rickety ladders (I'm with Alice on this one).

    Please stop confusing continuity with story choices or illustrative shorthand, or I'm just going to kill this thread.
  6.  (3181.71)
    I apologize.
    My comments about the tower and garden weren't supposed to highlight a problem - I'm fine with whatever choices you and Paul made on those two subjects, but the battery is NOT a case of "illustrative shorthand", but a full blown error, in the same vein of "left foot on the right leg" - someone is bound to notice it because it looks unnatural.

    Something is still bothering me about the bananas, and I've just realized what it is. It's not just that bananas are tropical, although I will snort quietly to myself if I see them sharing garden space with frost-dependent vegetables like parsnips or cabbages. Trouble is, domestic bananas are also seedless; they can only be grown from cuttings. Did Karl liberate a few plants from a botanical research facility or something?

    Thanks for being so enthusiastic and dedicated, but seeing as you've put in so much effort into spotting and reporting mistakes, please also put in the same effort to reading carefully through the thread and using your best judgement before you post, since I've already said that edits for volumes already in print aren't of any practical use at the moment.
    Please continue to keep an eye out though, as yours is evidently a sharp one, but a concise explanation is all that's needed in the future. I'm not thrilled at having someone rework my drawings without a by-your-leave, no matter how accurately.

    Noted and WILCO.

    This might be too nitpicky, but on the first panel of the newest page three, the gutter corner is still intact. KK ripped it off in episodes 83 and 84.
  9.  (3181.76)
    Good point! It's a small detail, but easily noticeable, since it was a plot point. Will sort out.

    Page 1, panel 3. Shouldn't we be seeing the buildings reflected in the puddles?
  10.  (3181.78)
    This was mentioned in the discussion thread for the episode, but I don't recall seeing any official comment/reaction so I thought I'd post it here in case it got missed.

    Episode 106, page 1, panel 1. Caz is talking to Karl, but says "you and Karl" went out to kill Mark - surely that should be Kirk?

    Episode 118, on the last page when Alice is pointing the shotgun, the coloring seems 'flopped'? Some parts of the barrel and assembly are brown, and the wooden stock under the barrel is gray like the barrel.

    This might not be an accident, of course, and is a minor detail - but it did jar my eye a little.

    Nope you're right about that one, I think it escaped my notice before uploading. That episode is also missing all the steam effects and rotor-blur for the new coptor >< Bad mistake.
