Apologies to the Fusella fans– I realize that at the page-a-week rate this scene must seem interminable. She’ll pull herself together shortly!
I’m having a bit of trouble reading Nelson’s face. The eyes show compassion for Fusella’s state of mind and her friends. The mouth shows disgust at a captain standing around being too shocked to act. I imagine Nelson’s feeling both, but the corresponding facial expressions don’t seem to be combining very well.
Of course, I know from experience that it’s much harder to draw a face that looks right than to pick out what’s wrong with one that doesn’t. There’s a reason I don’t draw a webcomic!
In any case, I’m greatly enjoying the story so far. A page a week isn’t what I’d call slow (but then I read Lackadaisy) but for a nail-biter of a scene like this, a post a day would still be too slow! Keep up the good work.
The general is doing what she is trained to do – get the job done. She is concerned, of course, but the first goal is to get the ship stable. Next, take care of the wounded and then worry about getting things fixed.
The Captain is in shock, and while I admire her concern for the crew, she needs a swift kick in the pants to get focused on being a ship’s Captain and what she needs to do to get her ship squared away.
The General is being very diplomatic in dealing with her. I am pretty sure this is the first time the Captain has had to deal with this kind of stuff.
