2015-04-10 Rerun commentary: In panel 2 you can see that one of the blue bricks making up the water in the tank is lifted out of place, and resting at an angle. There are two reasons for this:

  1. It represents a splash in the water left by the movements of the shark.
  2. I left the brick loose to leave a hole in the water for earlier shots of the shark poking its head out, and I didn't want to place the brick and push it all the way down so that the studs engaged on the baseplate, because if I did so I'd never be able to lift it back up again without dismantling the entire pool.
