Robinson’s decision to abandon the bridge during a crisis is not without precedent. Maybe it’s a trick he pulls on every new first officer just to see how they handle it.
Things are looking grim.
Doc isn’t quite the hardened criminal that the others are.
Also, I’m not quite satisfied with how the blam blams finally turned out.
Another one of these Boring Pages(TM). Don’t worry, though, I’ve completely finished the script for this issue and I can guarantee that there won’t be any more.
The artwork here presented some interesting challenges. Two characters with skin the same shade as their uniforms and in some cases at varying distances from the camera. Managing the space in the first panel was tricky, but I think it worked out nicely in the end.
I’m very disappointed in this page. It should have been rewritten.
It may come as a surprise to you that I actually can’t stand working on these kinds of pages. I’ve always considered them more of a necessary evil. Well, no more. While struggling through this pile of blather (and the reason it’s late is largely because of procrastination) I came to a resolution: no more talky pages, ever. From this day on, I will try to find a way to do this kind of scene without showing panels and panels of talking heads. Help keep me honest on this one.
