Comic #1293

1 Spanners: All Quercus has to do is put a goat in the hold and get out before the Allosaurus attacks him.
1 Paris: Oh, is that all?
2 {the bridge suddenly goes dark}
3 Paris: {checking bridge readouts, which are all blank} Power failure, the whole ship!
3 Iki Piki: Does that mean Quercus is locked in the hold?!
4 Spanners: No.
4 Iki Piki: Phew, that's good.
4 Spanners: The doors failsafe to open.
4 Allosaurus: {from off-screen} RAAARRRHH!!

I debated for some time whether Paris, being a ghost, should glow so that she is visible even in pitch blackness, or if you need ambient light to see a ghost by.

In the end I settled it by trying it out and composing the images each way. The ones with Paris visible looked so cool that I went with those. And hopefully the silhouettes of the other characters are recognisable enough.

2016-02-01 Rerun commentary: Normally with all power on the ship down you'd be worried about the life support systems. But that doesn't even rate a mention here at all.

It's good to have something else to distract you from such matters.
