Today's strip is a cute little one-off. But what in the name of Zeus is going on in panel two? At first glance it looks like Skull was wearing pants, or a shirt that cuts off at the stomach, or...something. It took me a few minutes to realize that he's standing behind a rope.
I know this is an oft-cited complaint of mine, but I'm begging you Mr. Kurtz; pull the camera back a little.
And I know I'm probably in the minority here, but I'm still not entirely sold on the idea of a jaded Skull.
