Unlike the next page (produced before this one), which was scaled and cropped, the top panel was re-rendered at 2500×2400, up from the original 2500×990… which was then scaled back down to the in-pace 2200-something-by-whatever. The end result is more headspace for Raven and Tantek in panel one, which preserves the rest of the composition.
There’s a good chance I’ll wind up doing this with more pages, on a case-by-case basis.
