Look at the backdrop to panel 1 – minimal detail but you can tell that this is a rocky wasteland! The clouds of dust kicked up by the tank in panel 2 likewise confirm this in an elegant, simply-drawn style.
Panel 6 has a couple of things I really like – I love the way the soldier smacks his fist into his hand – there is no ‘sound effect’ but the force of his determination is obvious even without much detail on his face. I also love the shadow cast by this soldier – the crosshatching with thin lines covered by variable width thicker lines is definitely something I will steal!
Interestingly, this comic did not list the names of any writers, artists or inkers… compare this with modern comic books!
