Re: 2014/01/22 - Adventure Time
In the book, which I just pulled out to verify and found I had a bunch of details wrong*, it is suggested via details mentioned in passing (like the nearness of the house to the sea) that there isn't much to the island other than the house; later on in the book someone mentions that the house itself is a much more likely hiding place... because the murderer could hide by a method which turns out not to be how the murderer is actually hiding, but is used in one of the Kindaichi Case Files manga mysteries; it's an ingenious suggestion for a fictional murderer in a sealed house where there are already multiple victims and no lockable doors, although it might not work in practice in reality. Bet you thought I'd explain it here because I used the spoiler tag -- heh heh heh
*Geez, there really IS a mention that the island is shaped like an Indian head in the book. (In my defense, it appears to be mentioned only once, in passing, near the beginning.) And I had Lombard and Blore's reactions mixed up in my earlier post; it's Blore who is there under a false name, not Lombard
(although by the scene shown in this strip, that point has already been threshed out; it gets brought out within a few pages). Mea culpa, I'll try to make sure not to post any further spoilers without rereading to check that they're accurate.
