There are several reasons a bald man might have a comb. You can, for example, use them to hold nails while you hammer and protect your fingers. A logical explanation, considering it was in work pants. Also, I agree, it’s almost impossible to recognize that as a comb.
The process of painting a landscape takes a long time, usually hours, and many artists sketch their work before actually painting. So # 1 could have started work on his west coast painting hours earlier, when it was still morning. Then his original sketch would have had morning shadows on the tree, which he replicated in the finished painting. Once again, Danger’s solution fails to account for the the way the real world works.
Dennis has nails in his mouth, indicating he is about to hammer that board. But as he’s holding the board in with his left hand, he must be holding the hammer in his unseen right hand. Dennis might write with his left Hand, but he appears to be equally adept with his right. If he’s ambidextrous, he could have shot with his right hand.
It’s worse than that. If you flop the image of Brian arriving, the whole image will flip, not just Brian. So the image would still show him walking toward the building, but the building would be on the right side of the picture, not on the left. You’d have to crop only Brian from the picture, flip the image of just Brian, then past that cropped part back into the original photo. Then manipulate the time stamp. As you said, much easier just to manipulate the time stamp on the picture of Brian leaving.
Another problem with this solution, the lights on the building in the background are different in the two pictures. They should have been the same, if all the Security Chief did was flip the picture.
So could the late Harlan Ellison.
Lots of professional writers use hunt and peck, so wouldn’t use all 10 fingers. However, even hunt and peckers tend to the the index fingers of both hands, not just one hand. So the fact that only the right index finger was used points to Alfred. The Inspector was right for the wrong reason.
Two answers for a few. T-Rex is the only meat eater in #2. Godzilla is the only non-animated character in #4.
Welcome back, Ian.
Actually, it’s the FIRST one I’ve seen with a bear wearing a mask. All the others were of bulls wearing masks. Having the bear wearing the mask doesn’t make sense. The current bear market shouldn’t be afraid of or worried by Coronavirus, as the virus it its mother. The bear market should be embracing the virus.
Yes, the problem with producing a comic strip that has lead time.
