This comic marks the first appearance of tiny, circular eyes. I have an impolite name for that style of eye but suffice it to say that they are almost always reserved for jerks or idiots. Something about them suggests a certain…simple-mindedness. I’m not sure how I settled on that idea but I have been drawing stick-people for years before the comic started.
Since we’re talking about this comic, I’ll also add that the Wal-Mart sales guy looks like a character from the old cartoon “Stickin’ Around”. [April 25, 2011]
