Yes! It’s another one of those face-mazes inspired by Superhero Fun & Games, but with some character I made up specifically for it. Like all the other mazes I’ve drawn so far in this book, it can’t be done. But this time, it can’t be done SPECTACULARLY. You get stymied after the first bend round the eye, but if you got through that you’d be blocked from going much further back than the retina. And if you managed that, you’re definitely bollocksed by the time you get halfway up his temporal lobe. Approaching it backwards from the exit - that’s if you can actually get in his mouth at all, which appears to be full of spit - you’re prevented from going any further by his lips and his throat, and if you somehow forced your way through, you’d be caught up forever in the curly squiggles going up the side of his cheek and, look, basically, this is the worst maze you’ve ever seen, isn’t it? The only solution I can think of is you could probably go in and out through his nostril, but it doesn’t really go anywhere so what’s the point? So: not a maze, check. Also not particularly human, for something that calls itself ‘The Human Maze’ - I mean, it’s human head-shaped, but it appears to be covered in scales, like some kind of fish man - maybe something like this or this? So semi-human at best. Let’s say humanoid. And what’s whirlwindy about him exactly? Whirlwind doesn’t turn up in any of my other books, so I’ve no info about him other than what we see here. And given the fish scales all over his head, Whirlpool might be a better name, if he needs to be whirly. Which makes me wonder - there’s a Whirlpool who sort of turns up in a future Topic book, so maybe this is supposed to be the same guy? I say ‘sort of’ turns up - well, you’ll see what I mean when I get there. But there’s no character information there either, so we’re none the wiser. So yeah - if you find any mazes anywhere in history worse than this one, I definitely want to see them.
