Chapter I - page 3


Panel 2: Note the pirate ship on the bookshelf behind the detective. Pirates are the most popular characters for comics in this world where superheroes walk among the populace, and the “Tales of the Black Freighter” comic that will be shown later will have far-reaching symbolic significance on the main story itself.

Panel 3: Here we see the blood spattering the smiley face button.

Panel 6: More hints at a different world: fashion as exemplified by the hat worn by the man in the elevator, and the smoking implement utilized by this same man – especially as compared to the traditional cigarette Detective #2 is smoking.

Panel 7: Another example of juxtaposition, this time used for black humor as the man in the elevator tells the detectives: “Ground floor comin’ up.” as we see the image of Edward Blake being thrown through the window.
