    <blockquote>Alice's two panels are a fine example. Almost identical stance on her part, a nearly unreadable face in both. But the point of view slides around the the front and closes in on the face. If you watch the details and look for change, you'll find very little. But look again - something important has changed, and I don't think it's a continuity error. </blockquote>

    I inspected these panels closely and finally found what it was you meant! At least, I think I do.

    There was a green tent/structure to Alice's right in the zoomed-out panel. From the angle in the close-up of Alice (on page 5, I think), it should actually take up the majority of the background, but isn't there.

    I'm not so sure this isn't a continuity error, though, because the close-up panel has a lot more visual impact with the sky behind Alice than if it were some dark green material?

    Regardless, this week's installment was such an awesome mindfuck that I have changed from a long-time lurker to an actual participant here in Whitechapel. Looking forward to discussing more about this amazing webcomic with everyone. :)

    Kirk has a smaller head.

    I've found Karl has a patient, more relaxed pose while Kirk is showing signs of tension from his perceived responsibility and has some worry lines around his eyes and mouth. Also I think Karl has no head-stubble. (But Kirk's is invisible past a certain distance so that can fool ya.)

    Not sure who mentioned this yet, but yes, Connor being the recorder of the crew is best prepared to come out of this experience with much more than any of the others.

    Also - Mr. Duffield: admit it; you're really a Freakangel in disguise, and your recent illness was just your artistic superpackage unpacking a bit more. Go on, I won't tell anyone...

    (Simply unbelievable what you're doing, specifically with facial expressions and color. Thank you, so much.)

    I don't know why so many have such a hard time telling Karl and Kirk apart--they look completely different to me. Karl has sharper features and is more emaciated looking than Kirk, even though they say Kirk goes for long periods without eating. They dress differently and have different mannerisms.


    I don't think being bald automatically makes someone indistinguishable from another bald person, or we'd all me insanely confused if Arkady decided to wear shorts one day. Why are so many of them bald, anyway?

    Keeps the old dome from overheating, and keeps the critter population (fleas, lice, ticks) down. That's my guess.
