Okay, sorry for the delay in comments on this one. Caught a cold at Otakon. More in news.
It’s been a while since I had the chance to use a beat panel in a comic. They’ve been running toward the wordy side for the last month or two. Brevity is not necessarily the soul of wit, but it could be like, the knee or something.
I had the opportunity a few years back at one of the more science-oriented SF cons to attend a slideshow about the Face on Mars. It was run by a NASA guy, an astronomer I think, who basically had collected pictures and history for all of the famous terrestrial rock formations that people claim to resemble faces and figures. His point: the human brain mainly functions as a pattern-matching machine, and often will impose patterns where there are none.
I have a stucco ceiling, which stares at me creepily from time to time as I lie in bed in the morning.
