A Mimion? And a wanted criminal? All by itself? *Loads Nivium-jacketed rounds into magpistol* Ohhh, this is going in the spank bank top ten.

That feeling when you don’t know whether to rate a comment up or down because it’s simultaneously hilarious and horrifying…

I like the slow pacing, and the deeper dive into our characters, but I do fear that the volume will feel to short and not moving the plot along, when it’s done. However, with the kickstarter books, once this is compiled into vol. 2 of that compendium, that will properly elevate the experience. So not an complaint, but an observation.
But I do enjoy this slowed down approach.

I feel like this is a very “pick your poison” kind of situation for almost any writer.
On the one hand – you need to give the reader enough context to appreciate the nuances of the characters’ predicament.
On the other – you can’t spend too much time on the background, lest the reader gets bored to death.
I believe that walking this tightrope without falling headfirst in either direction is a sign of an experienced writer.

Particularly true in the graphic novel format. Today, for example, the format allowed for only one exchange between characters. It’s actually the reason I stopped buying individual comic books and started buying graphic novel collections instead- you either get a ton of action but no substance or you get a ton of substance but not feel like anything actually happened in a single issue. Either way, I came away from each issue feeling unsatisfied. The collections are definitely better for gaining context, action, and character development all at once.

Yeah I could see where he was going with this issue. But this sometimes happens in comics. They have an issue that is broken up between characters and is a slow burn. It’s a bridge that sets up for the next set of issues.

Scav, wow that’s a term I haven’t heard since Borderlands the PreSequel lol Still it’s going to be interesting to see where this goes 🙂

How are there people around with the bay open and not being sucked into vacuum or suffocating?

Same way Star Wars does it: an energy-field keeps air in but lets solids through.

I think we can assume some sort of field that prevents the vacuum and the interior controlled atmosphere from mingling. Much like on the last station: https://cad-comic.com/comic/the-starcaster-chronicles-06-23/

Interesting response given the situation he’s in. Trying to fly under the radar with the entire federation looking for you in a beat up ship with not much cash and two friends stranded on a deserted rock relying on your return.

Ugh, that term screams the same energy as “on the molecular level” (gag). If you mean to name the acid after what it dissolves, you haven’t exactly narrowed it down.

I’ve only seen it twice, but I believe you. That’s just another example of good movies not being above criticism.

I am going to guess that the ‘wreck’ was the bribe.
