"The author uses corrupted images as inspiration, getting trippy but also conveying that this is not where they are supposed to be. To one person, it might be something to poke at, and to another it might something you want to run away from. The beauty of the way Rob tells this entire comic is that it is told from two perspectives; his white, boxy character (who at this point I shall call Box), and the dark, tear dropped shaped one (henceforth Tear). The comic is still silent, and both of them are still nameless. However, once they are split by a portal they fall into, the whole comic unravels into two contained spaces where things change into something isolated and lonely." - Raging Tomato, What A Geek
