April 7, 2020 Fingers crossed that we *finally* get some backstory on what happened in Alaska.
April 7, 2020 It probably smells horrible in that closed room.
April 7, 2020 don't worry, a section of the window is actually busted thru (2 pages back!)
October 6, 2020 On the first/background panel? I thought that is some kind of observation room up there.

Edit: Inserted a missing "is"
October 6, 2020 Yeah it's an observation/office room :)
October 7, 2020 But has that observation room a connection to the outside? Otherwise the busted window wouldn't help with letting fresh air in.
October 7, 2020 Oh yeah there's a way to get up there. There are some stairs leading up to it that are off panel, but you can also see access to offices on the bottom half of the building. Panel one here shows that area a bit from the side.
October 8, 2020 Now I suspect a misunderstanding somewhere. Let me repeat...

My (implied) question was: Has the observation room an open or busted window to the outside of the complex so that fresh air can come in via the observation room? Because if not, the only way for fresh air to get in would be the way the group around agent Ink came in. And then this room would smell horrible indeed.

But none of the guys & gal seems to be affected by an intense stench.
October 8, 2020 OOO, yeah that large room they entered is a viewing area, sort of an overhang to a desert cliffside (which admittingly isn't shown and can be confusing). It's pretty big and I think the air circulating from the window would help with the smell a bit :)
April 7, 2020 I have a feeling it's not going to be a pretty story.
April 8, 2020 Hm, the little standing stone figures are also from Alaska/Canada, iirc. But they’re totally innocent, no? Just trail markers?
August 21, 2020 The reason you'll find whales painted on deserts in areas Navajos and Apaches live or passed through in the deep desert is that they're Athabascan peoples who came from … Alaska … just like the Sioux have relatives in Siberia.
October 6, 2020 So, he can see the dogs faces?

The sign looks somewhat familiar to me too. And I'm pretty sure I haven't been in Alaska :D
October 7, 2020 Oh yeah, he has no trouble with animals. Proso affects an area of the brain that involves recognizing human faces. Those w Proso compare not being able to recognize faces to not being able to distinguish two or more dogs of the same breed.

The ability for humans to recognize faces instantly is an evolutionary trait, so if that area of the brain is damaged, you have face blindness.

Of course, that doesn’t mean they don’t have a hard time recognizing animals without distinct unique patterns!
October 8, 2020 Ah, good to know. Thanks for clarifying.
