** In Issue 5, the strange boy Max was trying to talk to has one of these after he hides from Max upon realizing she can see him.

Added DiffLines:

* InvisibleToNormals: The strange boy Max sees in issue 5 is only visible to her. Everyone else just ignores him, allowing him to steal a tip jar right off Paul's counter without him even acknowledging it. He's quite freaked out when it becomes obvious Max can see him.


* CaretakerReversal: In the game (depending on the playthrough), Max is usually the one who tries to calm Chloe down whenever her emotions or impulsiveness leads to trouble. Here, with Max's literal grip on reality shifting around due to [[spoiler: her displacement in the multiverse]], Chloe is the one who snaps her out of it, usually telling her that she should not [[GuiltComplex take responsibility over the world's problems just because she has powers]].

* CuttingOffTheBranches: As mentioned above, the comic is set after the "Sacrifice Arcadia Bay" ending. Additionally, Chloe mentions how Kate's life was almost destroyed, implying that Max was able to save her.
