NRK (Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation) did a piece on the comic. While this is in Norwegian, there are some pictures of storyboards and other work in progress if anyone is interested: http://www.nrk.no/te...erie-1.12761903

Finally got around to reading this. Babelfish doesn't have Norwegian->English translations so that was a no-go, but Google Translate worked great and the English it produced was acceptable. I highly suggest everyone looks at this. Thanks again! :)

I have contacts there :). The picture is from our visit to Lisbon in 2012. It was very nice to meet Sir Typesalot in person for the very first time!

Hi ERISS. Thanks for the feedback.

Regrettably, some combinations of viewing modes, browsers and operating systems are bound to cause some issues with a multimedia piece such as this.

In the interest of full disclosure - given the costs associated with seeing to all possible such combinations we've decided this to be the final, as-is, online delivery. We anticipate no further revisioning.

It is also partly to mitigate these issues, and so people can still view the comic in some form, that the alternate download versions have been made available (vanilla PDF, etc).

Thusly, pardon any inconvenience, gents, but even great fiction must occasionally be confronted with certain facts of a more material nature.

There's a bug: In fullscreen (F11), the page becomes all black after 10 seconds (there is still the music).
That's a pity but does not prevent to read it in normal screen :/
I use Firefox in Windows 10.
