Well, since I edited the book that #9 came from I can 100% tell you what the intent there was. The over-the-shoulder viewpoint makes the reader a passenger on the bike. What we're doing is showing a routine monotony, this kid rides into the tunnel every night. The subsequent panels could all be from one night, they can be from past nights, it really doesn't matter. It's just always THE SAME. Until he sees a guy in a wolfman mask.
