However, the effect he has on Sharpe still lasts throughout

Arch Enemy: Obadiah Hakeswill is somewhat downplayed in this role in the series, appearing only in Sharpe’s Company and Sharpe’s Enemy. However, the effect he has on Sharpe still lasts throughout the series. Major Pierre Ducos does a decent job of picking up the baton, repeatedly attempting to not only have Sharpe killed but have him die a dishonourable death in revenge for a relatively minor insult, which was in an incident that Ducos caused by insulting Sharpe’s recently departed wife Teresa. Following his introduction in Sharpe’s Enemy, he acts as the Man Behind the Man in later episodes Sharpe’s Honour, Sharpe’s Siege (in which he and Sharpe never meet despite being aware of each other’s involvement) and Sharpe’s Revenge. Arguably, Sir Henry Simmerson, by virtue of appearances throughout the series, serving as a recurring obstacle of Sharpe’s in Sharpe’s Eagle, Sharpe’s Sword, Sharpe’s Regiment and Sharpe’s Challenge. Aristocrats Are Evil: Played Straight and Subverted. On screen at least pretty much ever other officer Sharpe meets is an aristocrat, and while many turn out to be antagonists or incompetents, others are honorable characters and become allies of Sharpe. The Duke of Wellington is portrayed in a generally favorable light, and the Prince of Wales, while being portrayed as a total lunatic, becomes a patron of Sharpe’s. The trope is further subverted in Sharpe’s Justice in which the villain is not an aristocrat, but a monied commoner who compares himself directly to Sharpe as a man from humble beginnings who rose to prominence on his own merit. Army of Thieves and Whores: The whole British Army, even the elite riflemen, are shown as a Truth in Television example of this. Sharpe is given no illusions about this early on in his command. Sharpe: Did you volunteer for this lot, Cooper?

Splash panels are extremely popular in Japanese comic books (or Manga) and entire issues can consist of characters doing not very much at all on a very large canvas. This ushered in an era of Decompressed Comics with very little plot but great big pictures that ran to the mid 2000’s before dying out. Splash panels, especially two page spreads, do not work very well when collected into trade paperbacks due to the crease that is now in the middle of the page. This can be especially disastrous if there are significant speech balloons or captions in the vicinity of the crease. (A rarer problem in collections happens when two two page splash panels are an odd number of pages apart, due to there having been an odd number of advertising pages between them in the original comic. This can be resolved with a blank page, a new page of art, or splitting one page of art over two pages.).
