When too subtile becomes...obscure.
This is something that I was very proud of at one time. In issue #2 a CEO of a company tries to explain to Niko how beneficial his company is to the country...later on in the same issue The Queen explains to Niko how beneficial her reign is to the (same) country. In both cases it is just propaganda (even though different words are used) and I wanted to make a connection between the two speeches. I tried to do it by giving the same gestures to the characters. I just inked The Queen's monologue and as I was finishing it up I realized that no one will make that connection. Bummer.
