A rare serious discussion

A trend I often mention in Slylock Fox is to have little black birds, seen directly in profile, staring straight towards the reader. Today’s strip has not only a bird, but also a mouse and a cat.

Why? Why does Mr. Weber love drawing them so much? And why are they so creepy? Something is just odd about how they insistently face you from the side, rather than using both eyes. The fact that they’re usually ignoring the silly scenes around them, instead focusing on you is also pretty disturbing.

I wouldn’t trade it away for the world. It adds to much flavor to the panels. I just wonder if I’m the only one who finds them so… eerie.
