Re: 1738:"Moon Shapes"

I'm a little surprised the comic stuck to somewhat realistic depictions of the moon. I was half expecting the last panel to be this moon from RWBY: http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/rwby/images/2/27/V3_Opening_00001.png/revision/latest?cb=20151015232402 Which is just right out, unless those chunks...
