Fun details

facelessOne of the very first things we see in the comic is the faceless Will. From sources online this may be interpreted as a form of identity loss. Given this the dream may be taht Will is have a form of identity crisis after learning she has powers.

 

cookie

More Will. Not as much a fun fact as an observation. But who eats a cookie for breakfast?

 

 

card

When Will hands Mrs. Rudolph her number so she can contact her. It may just be a piece of paper but it look a bit like a business card.

 

 

bookA book the girls have trouble opening. May not be the last time the girls have that problem.

 

 

phoneWhen Irma tries to break in to Mrs. Rudolphs home she uses a phone card. Thsi may indicate that Irma have a mobile we have not yet seen.

 

 

hand

Duing the traning session where the girls use their magic. Notice the difference in the way Cornelia and Irma is holing their hands. Irma is determind and more controlling while Cornelia seems a bit more bound.

 

tiffIn Mrs. Rudolphs home we see yet another Tiffany lamp.

 

 

 

pineWe see Mrs. Rudolph have a huge bite out of a pineapple. The pineapple is recognized as a traditional expression of “welcome” throughout the South and in areas along the Eastern Seaboard. It symbolizes: warmth, welcome, friendship and hospitality.
