    Nah, I think the snapping is meant to be perceived or giving the eerie feeling of cultish indoctrination. It doesn't look spontaneous as clapping or excited mumbling, but a forced planned manner of salutation to their leaders.

    it is only one hand, it really feels more individualist and more orderful than clappping

    Eh, that too, it could mean this world is more organized.

    I think what makes the snapping so weird is that it does carry so many connotations. You have the organza ton of the snapping, the implication of the indoctrination, that the action is just familiar enough yet is so different, and, of course, the absurdity of the removal of the "sexual" aspects of clapping.

    Also, the whole finger snapping thing reminds me of what we'd do in middle school and elementary school because clapping was too loud. So there's also that.

    Good job, X-Office! You made finger snapping even creepier!

    Personally, I think there's another reason why the fingersnap instead of clapping - Less noise.
    In such a "safe" sanitized environment, causing too much noise might be seen as too disruptive - who knows who you might end up triggering with such a vulgar display of concussion.

    This, programmed vs. impulsiveness, very Stepford/pod people-ish.

    So from left to right, I recognize Rockslide, Tempus, Blindfold, Anole, Glob, Maggott, ?, Triage, ?, ?, Shark-Girl, Goldballs, ?... ?...

    Who are the 3 ? female characters packed in between Maggott, Triage, & Shark-Girl's walkin' the line, and the one ? neXt to Goldballs up in front, supposed to be?

    I think the one leadin' the pack with Fabio might be Armor, but have no idea on the others.

    Look at that corpse walking next to Anole.

    Dear God, please tell me this isn't how they're going to bring back Ruth and Loa. I might actually throw up a little if they do.

    It’s:
    -Rockslide
    -Tempus
    -Blindfold (word to my flags)
    -Anole
    -Rockslide-lite but with more self-loathing
    -Maggott
    -Manson
    -Triage
    -someone who won’t show up anyway
    -Surge
    -Shark-Girl
    -Goldballs
    -Armor
    -Pixie
    (plus No-Girl is at the very top)

    But Bachalo had said a little bit ago that he just had free reign to draw his favorite students on the cover, so that’s probably why we see characters like Blindfold.

    I got that feel from it too. Brisson did a real good job of having the school have a creepy stepford like feel. I love it. I'll be following this going forward!

    ThanX. Never heard of Manson, or the one who won't show up anyway, lol. Surge looks unrecognizable to me. Pixie, of course. Oh yeah, forgot about Martha, she's easy to miss.
