I too am perplexed.
Also, that Fantasia thing had the whales fly up into space, and I cannot resist a Simpsons quote.
"What're they breathing?"
"There's no air in space!"
"There's an Air and Space Museum!"
As for the "ooh, it's bigger than usual"...heh, if the size of comics is some kind of Freudian phallic thing (as every damn thing is according to Freud), well, in comparison with the webcomics I read and have seen, my standard size is teeny tiny. If I was a guy, I'd feel shamefully inadequate. But I'm not, so ha.
Hmm, but then, the comics in the newspaper are printed in a miniscule size. But then again, most of them should be tried in court on multiple charges of sucking criminally badly, and sentenced to lethal injection.
