By popular (?) demand, here’s another look into our souls. These guys should probably get their own tag already.
Love those guys.
I’ve come to think of these as the ‘Charcoal People’ the cinders of our lives.
Wow, this is even more dark than the first one. In that case at least we knew what we really are :P
To be honest, I’m not sure I get this one.
Are the mummy-looking people supposed to represent what we feel on the inside? (That is, we might all look happy and content on the outside, but on the inside we’re mostly just sad husks of people.)
Or this thought just came to me: What if those beings were inexplicably drawn to perform certain actions by some unknown force, only to finally discover that they are somehow bound to reflections from some other world? That might explain the shocked expression in the third panel.
I might not get this particular cartoon, but it’s still interesting.
As I understand it, the dead-looking people represent what we actually are (or how we feel inside, like you said).
The main point is made in the last panel, in which the ghosts look at the mirror and see not themselves, but what we would consider a “normal” human being. Kristian is saying that we all feel broken and decayed on the inside, but don’t realize it and keep on living like there’s nothing wrong.
The shocked expression in the third panel is a form of irony, where you would expect the character to be horrified by his own reflection, but all he does is tidy up his suit.
