June 8, 2021 Congratulations, it's NOT a cosmic horror !

On a not-completely-related note, it just occured to me that the logo for the comic is the stylisation of our woodpecker friend's face...
June 8, 2021 Great observation! It's an artistic styling of the markings specifically, from the back



This woodpecker is the most likely extinct, ivory billed woodpecker... nicknames The Good-Lord Bird and The GhostBird, among others :)
June 8, 2021 That is so awesome! I never realized what the logo meant.
June 8, 2021 TBF, we haven't got to that part yet :> and it's hard to know unless you know the colors of woodpeckers!
June 13, 2021 Yeah, I was trying to identify the bird shown in this page and found a fairly similar one on the internet, the pileated woodpecker. It was not identical, but close enough that the red from its crest "popped" when I looked at the logo.
June 13, 2021 A lot of ppl confuse the two. Ppl think the Ivory is still around, while others think those ppl are just misidentifying it w the pileated woodpecker.
June 26, 2021 I was about to ask if that was the extinct one! Fits beautifully with him being a birder — it’s such a Holy Grail style dream to find one.
June 27, 2021 YES! Thanks, I'm glad you think so too!
June 8, 2021 This is all happening in Fink's mind? What does this bird mean to him? Nothing good I'm thinking. But why did it pop-out of the Sheriff's head in such a fashion? Why him, or could it happen to anyone?
MORE Mysteries!!!
June 8, 2021 What is it about this bird, right? On another level, the woodpecker is symbolic of determination. As said above, this is the Ivory Billed Woodpecker-- most likely extinct-- the elusive Holy Grail of birds in North America. The Ghostbird...

Why is it popping out of Sheriff Logan? Could it be anyone else? That's a comment for another time maybe ;)
June 8, 2021 That is really scary.
June 8, 2021 It can be!

This article is not for the faint of heart. And do NOT look for the video... oof! But the title alone is enough to bring that much weight to your comment!
June 8, 2021 whoosh! no, i'm not suddenly covered in fear-sweat, it was raining ... in a very small area ... right above me ... for a minute
June 8, 2021 That happens. A lot. Whenever there's a weird bird around XD
June 22, 2021 Ok. Mouse-over tells me the full name of the link. Nnnnot looking at that!

But indeed... That's not your usual daydream. It seems like agent Fink has another condition on top of his face blindness.
June 9, 2021 Thanks, I'm living!!

Also lovely woodpecker trivia there 👀
June 9, 2021 Class is in session :D
June 9, 2021 This reminds me of a migraine I had once.
June 15, 2021 If there's anything I'm learning from this comic it's that all animals are symbolic. Well, or just evil.
June 15, 2021 Some more than others (and that applies to both statements!)
June 15, 2021 That is so unbelievably cool about the logo. And what a positively horrifying page! :D
June 15, 2021 Thanks! I love it when ppl make the connection of the logo to the woodpecker-- might be easier in color-- BUT y'know :)
