Comic #138: Higher Ground

Another glimpse into Chelsea’s newly-revealed obsession with Peter. Kinda makes you wonder how long she’s been watching him like this.

An interesting little bit is the cliche "binocular view" effect used up there. In reality looking through a binocular actually looks like a single circle — because of how your eyes focus through both sides at once and merge into one solid view — so I always wondered where the idea came from of having two connected circles in silhouette representing it. It’s just another one of those things that makes no real logical sense but is widely accepted as the norm for storytelling purposes, I suppose.
