Alcoholism is discussed in Cases 2 and 3. We briefly see somebody intoxicated in Case 2, and alcohol itself is found as evidence in both.

In Case 3, a character mentions having hurt their arm recently. One of the puzzles creates the image of an x-ray.

A hospital is mentioned, but the main characters don't go there.

One of the deaths is made to look like a suicide however it's revealed it was a murder.

Honor's ex-husband tends to anytime he appears, and is a recurring character for at least three cases.

I don't think so, but in Case 1 you exit through a vent. It isn't shown.

Not strobe or fast, but some single white flashes due to the art style

No, but I want to give a heads up that there is a very flamboyant gay character in the main cast. His introduction, lines, and the jokes around it can come off as stereotypical for sure (like, not really a personality outside of being the MC's best friend, talking about men, wine, drag, fashion, shopping)

I don't think so but I can't remember; there is a fat security guard in Case 1 which I know is kind of a trope, but idk if they make any rude or stereotypical comments outside of that

There is a money-related character with a sharp downturned nose, but it seems that he's just supposed to look shark-like (visual pun on loan shark), the focus is on his teeth

Case 3 is centered around the apparent murder of a gay man, it was, however, an accident.

Very heavy theme of prison and policing equalling true justice

All characters are referred to by their pronouns, including both drag queens, one of whom is a bio queen. Both use She/Her while in drag. Some amount of explanation about drag queens, trans people and sex is included with two characters expressing some confusion, however, everyone is respectful and misgendering is avoided by the writing.

Initially, this appears to be the case; however, characters suspect that it is actually a murder framed as a suicide. [SPOILER:] It is later revealed that the person was murdered.

Some close-ups of the victims feature blood. One character is shot and presumably bleeds to death. There is no excessive blood, and the art style softens the realism.

Multiple characters are shown wielding guns. The main characters are shot at; one is injured in Case 2, but quickly recovers. One victim was shot and killed. A character is shot and killed in Case 4.
