Dr. Maijabi's covered eye has a kind of "spectral vision"--the idea came from an episode of the short horror fiction podcast Pseudpod called The Nightside Eye
. As the story explains, one of the reasons pirates may have worn eye patches was to preserve their night vision. They would cover their eye when entering bright sunlight and uncover it when descending below deck, so that one eye was always adjusted to see in dim lighting. Nightside Eye adapts the idea to the sixth sense--keeping one eye covered allows it to remain always adjusted to the supernatural world. The story is Australian, and so Dr. Maijabi is also Australian (aboriginal, that is). I don't want to get your hopes up too much, though--any ghosts appearing in TGS will have a minor role at best. Dr. Jekyll's problems are plentiful but generally stay in the land of the living.
In other news, I think I am sick? Luckily this week's page--that is, the page I am working on right now that I will upload here in about four weeks--is pretty simple, but it still took me a painfully long time to finish! I think I am going to take the rest of the evening off, or at least do something a bit less intensive than comic work. ><
