Oh yeah! I do love this kind of atmospheric covers, could be a little bit darker, but that's my personal preference. I hope those background dwellers are not some homework-thirsty teachers!

I also have a question - why are covers of each chapter the average, 4:3 ratio artworks but comics pages themselves are all shape and sizes? I've been wondering about it, like, since the first page.

@papierowybandyta: Glad you like the cover. Actually funny thing with the darker/lighter. Unfortunately as it lives on screen, it really depends on the screen settings, and even on the amount of light in the room when watching it! I thought I'd kept it really subtle, then I saw it again in the evening, dark room with only the screen on, and they really popped out. Anyway the background dwellers were a bit of an afterthought!
The size of the covers: good question. The comic pages are actually comic strips. So each daily entry (of the story) is made up by exactly the same size comic strip (one to maximum 4 panels- no exceptions!), and three comic strips make up one page, which is the size of the cover. Imagine for instance putting the three first entries of this book one after the other, you'd get page 1 of the print version. That's because the original intent of this story was print, but we (the author and I) wanted to do also the daily strip version, a bit like the ones on newspapers. That, once finished, can be collected in books. (with 21 or 23 pages, that is 63 or 69 daily strips, depending on the book)
