    Anyone have gotten allusions to a certain over-sized female anatomy when they read this website's name?

    In SoD page 84 (which happened 3 years before from the biginning of OotS) there is a little girl who just look like Haley's childhood. Re-used character?

    In response to some of the naysayers, comic #464. THAT is definitely her spine.

    And you know how you can tell? It's still attached to her torso.

    Nope, that's a crack. It just so happens her torso happens to be on it... but you can also see that is where the piece of gate is embedded into the ground.

    That's just silly. It's twice as long as her upper body, and we know from panel 1 that she still has the spine connected to her brain as far down as the arms. Besides, we know from seeing Roy's and Xykon's skeletons, among other examples, that bones in OotS are white.

    I believe, though I'm no expert, that the genes for male pattern baldness are passed through the female line. In other words: you don't inherit it from your father, but from your mother's father.

    As for Roy, he's not bald - he's shaven-headed, which is an option for tough-guy stereotypes.

    Sir, that is most definitely a crack.
    1. It's too long
    2. It's not white
    3. Placement =/= proof
    4. It's clearly from the piece of the throne embedded into the ground

    The reason for the tilting is because it's expressing Haley's viewpoint. She's towing a heavy load, made even heavier by Belkar's gratuitous selfishness, and she's feeling put-upon.
    No, not only has Rich never done anything like that (and it's a bit of a stretch to figure anyways). The colors are going uphill because they are underground in a mine. Not only are characters drawn that way when going up hill (any other way would be rather awkward) but Haley is not in a great position to properly pull the cart.

    Male pattern baldness doesn't affect the hair on the chin, only on the crown of the head.

    In any case, as pointed out, both Eugene and his father are follically challenged, so it's a moot point which of them Roy inherited that feature from.

    I'm glad that my comment has triggered some debate. Aside from the fact that in comic we've seen both Eugene and Horace with not very much hair, at an age where they still have brown beards; most of my realisation came from bonus material:

    In OtOoPC Pg30:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Eugene says to a 21-year-old Roy: "So, I see you shaved your head. Figured you'd beat genetics to the punch, eh?" The implication that Roy could be approaching baldness at 21, together with the use of the word genetics could show that premature baldness runs genetically in the family. (I'll be honest I didn't make the link theis early on, but it was certainly something that backed up my argument when I did make the discovery)

    In SoD Pg20:
    Spoiler
    Show
    We see a young Eugene showing signs of hair loss in Panel 4 (compared to Panel 2) and has lost all his hair within a few years after that. I'm only guessing that it's a few years, but at the very most he must be forty-one (using info from page 41 of OtOoPC, and the fact that Xykon killed Fyron 40 years ago) which seems a bit early to be completely bald.

    But what finally brought all this to my attention was something Roy says in the preface to DStP:
    Spoiler
    Show
    "What about hair? I shave my head, but will the resurrection spell know that? Will it give me a full (well, full-ish) head of hair by default?" In other words at the age of twenty eight, Roy knows that his hair will not grow back over his whole head, regardless of whether he shaves it or not.

    Sorry this post is so spoilery, but it's better to be safe than have someone complain about it. Just so you know, if you haven't read the books, none of these are major spoilers.

    Actually, the German word is 'Hexe' (or 'Hexer' for males), but the etymologies are probably related.

    725 also matches with 50 - although someone's given the army new helmets and Tarquin appears to have lost some weight on the journey to the Western Continent.

    If that was her spine, then her spine would be sticking out of her head by a foot.

    Milo was bisected by a piece of the throne. how would a length of spine longer than her torso and head have survived intact?

    In the strip 437, before V deintegrate the horse, the reins are grey, after V desintegrate the horse, the reins become brown.

    If you zoom in close, you can see that they are only grey against the horse's bones. The part that's seen over the blue sky background is brown.

    My guess is that the grey part is due to anti-aliasing in the art program, and wouldn't be seen as such in the print version.
