Note that the Batman-style “mask covers the nose” visual riff can be problematic indeed for a manga-influenced approach to character design, as we can see here. In some shots we can see Spooky’s nostrils, and in others we can’t, depending on what I felt like doing at the time.
Stand by for a short (7 story pages) but key episode in the series, one that sets up a whole lotta future tearjerkery. “I Know” is also the first story to boast dialogue that I can still recite from memory, as I’d worked out Mindf**k’s closing soliloquy in my head long before I ever put pencil to paper. (For long-time readers, this also applies to parts of the Demonwolf’s vol.7 speech and Spooky’s rants at the end of several different volumes.)
