This has probably been discussed in detail before. Parson, Wanda, Jack and Jillian have more or less normal eyes. Everyone else has featureless eyes. This makes sense since those four characters are the "main cast" so to speak, so having expressive eyes is logical.

But look closely at Book 2, page23, ninth panel...

VANNA has eye whites.

They aren't much, but they are consistently there in the other comics she appears in. Does this foreshadow her importance later on?

    Wanda, Jack, and Jillian all happen to be main characters, but I believe the eye-whites are considered to be a Faq-specific (and Earth, I guess) quality. That "main cast" characters like Ansom and Stanley don't have eye-whites would seem to indicate that this is more a quality that's related to a character's origin, as opposed to story hierarchy.

    As Vanna is from Unaroyal (and the rest of the folks we've seen from there don't have eye-whites), I'm assuming that whatever Vanna appears to have around her eyes is actually make-up of some form. Vanna probably doesn't have any particular significance in the overall story--at least, not on the basis of her eyes.

    I call the whites a coloring mistake. Oops.

    Otherwise, I'd just say her eyes are generically brown the way Ansom's are generically blue.

    I look to the Flinstones: Wilma and Barney had "dot-eyes", everyone else--even Dino--had visible scleras.

    In the Jetsons, everyone but Elroy had visible scleras.
