^^If you look at the panel more closely, you'll see that it's been drawn in what the author obviously considers a comedic style.
Again, "serious humour" that they were talking about refers to a "situation", like crashing a van into a media station, that is humorous because of the nature of the situation, that the characters take dead seriously. In that case, Takagi and Mashiro should have been drawn in an uber realistic, super serious style, not the distorted "comedy" style.
^I agree. He obviously finds it challenging to use a more stylized style, and the stylization in the beginning can come across as a bit contrived at times. But he's settling into the style better now and I think it's working very well actually. I like to see him Playing Against Type
Still think Hikaru no Go
was when the beauty of his art was at its peak though. I feel that it degenerated just a little in the second half of Death Note
