Panel 4: The cashier (off panel) starts reading the menu in Morse, shown as a speech bubble full of dots and dashes to represent the sounds. Sigma turns away from the counter with an expression that’s a mix of annoyance and disbelief. He says “I–I have to go”.

    This is what I love about purely visual mediums. Characters can speak “off-camera” without their voice immediately telling the audience something about them, allowing the author more freedom in choosing when to introduce humanlike AIs to the story.

    • Ooh, that’s a good take!! I like it…..

    How many restaurants have braille menus? Why does the guy that doesn’t know the difference between braille and Morse code actually know Morse code?

    After looking it up, the Morse code says “Today’s special is chi” I wonder what the special was? Some sort of chili?

    • The special was chicken alfredo, I cut it out because of space 🙂

      And I learnt Morse code when I was in fifth grade while having no idea of what Braille was until much later, so I think it can happen…?
