Goya’s The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters


  • The image in the upper right (which Pru’s pose is imitating) is Francisco Goya’s c. 1799 print titled “The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters.”
  • For what it’s worth, Pru is wearing the same gridded pants she wore in the first two prelude issues – also seen on the cover of Code Pru #2.
