* Spider's column, and the way he looks at Mary, in "Another Cold Morning" (#8).Imagine Creator/HunterSThompson writing "We Didn't Start The Fire" ''his'' way. Mary, in her sixty-four years of life as a professional photographer, saw: [[TheVietnamWar The war that drove America crazy]], the first step offworld, [[BerlinWall a severed city put back together with sledgehammers]], Creator/WilliamSBurroughs and NelsonMandela and RichardNixon and Music/TheBeatles and MotherTeresa. Amazing and horrifying things, humanity at its best and its worst. She chooses to become a HumanPopsicle in the hopes of seeing even more amazing things. Her resurrection is detailed as a miracle made mundane by mature nanotechnology. Her life, death and rebirth are pure wonder... and she wakes up in a world ''[[TearJerker that doesn't give a damn about any of it.]]''

* Royce and Spider share a rather vitrolic relationship for most of the series. After Spider goes on the run from the president's forces, an irritated Royce stumbles across his column for the underground newsfeed The Hole. His reaction: an honest grin and a relieved, ''"Spider."'' Making it clear that he genuinely does like Spider, despite everything.

* Spider Jeruselem is an [[HeroicSociopath absolute]] [[{{Jerkass}} bastard]] most of the time. Issue 22 makes such a touching change: Spider buys a homeless [[FishOutOfTemporalWater minor character]] from issues ago a modern camera simply because he felt for a fellow journalist.
