    It seems awfully light for midnight in that last panel…

  2. Tindi says:

    I imagine a breath of agnosticism in the din of prayer is occasionally refreshing, if one is sufficiently open-minded.

  3. Ix says:

    They didn’t say it was midnight – they said it was six hours before dawn. In other words, around the time you start getting the pre-dawn twilight – enough light to see by, but it’s still fairly dark.

    Or it could be a full moon.

  4. Saphroneth says:

    Ix, that’s one hour before dawn, roughly. It’s known as BMNT. I’m thinking full moon. Certainly not six hours before, as that is very early.

  5. Nyktipolos says:

    Haha. The last panel looked weird to me too (plus six hours before dawn WOULD be roughly midnight, in most places of the world), but suspension of disbelief never hurt anybody. 🙂

  6. BunnyRock says:

    Willing suspension of rational disbelief is the most important of all human survival traits. Without this all teamwork, group activity and imagination is futile and doomed, and man becomes a small creature of the land lost in the crashing waves as they drive against the shore.

  7. NexoxEnigma says:

    Plenty of the daytime panels are mostly black, so why not have a midnight panels thats mostly white? Not that I’d know any better, since my ‘art’ goes about as far as I can throw a stick figure with uneven-length appendages…

  8. Eugene says:

    Nexox – just call it foreshortening, and you’re set!!

    “chiaroscuro”: the artful use of light and shadow



  10. Rundikin says:

    The further north you are, the longer the twilight/predawn. Even in Montana we get pretty 45 minutes civil twilight, another 45 minutes of each of the next two stages.

    @TekServer- The Tale of Desperaux! Roscuro! Finally, a reference for me among the seemingly far-above-my-head comments! Thank you! 😀

    I really liked that book. Also, the movie was cute but they messed with the story a lot.

    I was so afraid she was going to say “This is the short version.”
