I'm starting to sympathise with Skamm now (with the help of the cute drawing of him lower left). It looks as if he's becoming one of the good guys, though I doubt they would welcome him with open arms. I worry that Karostropov will do something to him now that he's betrayed his trust.

I love those expressions, myself! I think that they make the comic fun to look at. Like the picture of Kit lower right here
and Squinx's wild take here
. If a character is always on-model an exhibits a rigid personality it can make the comic quite generic and predictable.
I've noticed Mitchell has become more sinister recently - he once scorned Karostropov for planning to kill Bill Blaine ("Kill Bill"... sounds like a movie) when he only wanted to fake his death, but in the last comic he was considering wiping out the entire Copulation Club! It must be his greed for attaining wealth that is making him mad with power. It is a good example of how personalities can change in this comic, like the lawyers forsaking their shady past.
Also, I wonder if we'll ever get to see Skamm's private parts. Hmmm, maybe it will be one of those eternal mysteries, like the face of Dr. Claw in the Inspector Gadget cartoons!
This comic has definitely become exciting! It must be the element of danger that permeates it (like in "Outfox the Tyrant").
