Panel 1-3: Before you enter this doorless apartment in the game, a couple of cops knock on (and then kick in) a door across the hall. When you speak to the man seated at the table, he asks you in confusion "Was that you knocking? I didn't know we still had a door." They don't, and this is apparently why.|
The name "Ivan" is a reference to "Ivan the Space Biker", the nickname for an early version of the model for Gordon Freeman in the original Half-Life.
Posing notes: The guy at the table is an in-game character, the woman is a posed ragdoll, although she is in the apartment as a character when you visit in-game.
In the last panel, there is an overturned chair in the corner of the room by the window, and look! It's hovering a few inches off the ground! I kept bumping into it while I was walking around setting things up, so I grabbed it and stuck it in the corner (in mid-air). Didn't notice it was visible until the comic was done and posted. D'oh!
