So. I drew the first panel of Gas Mask guy sowing up but in my stupidity I decided it wasn't adventurous enough. So instead I tried going for a "worm's eye view." looking up at him all foreboding like...and what we end up with is the first panel of today's page. It definitely didn't come out the way I wanted it but for the sake of keeping to schedule I've left it in.

He's got guts, heading into that zombie-infested place armed with only bladed weapons. In America, the infatuation with guns tends to breed an inflated sense of worth in a true fight. A warrior's greatest weapon will always be himself first, all weapons are in essence extensions of the body.

Good philosophy. Zombie apocalypses wouldn't be as cool in a country where everyone had guns. Where's the challenge? This guy doesn't need to worry though, I tried to get across in the page the idea that all the zombies bow before him. Maybe it's not explicit enough, maybe I needed to use words.

I completely missed that. I just assumed the zombies were on their knees out of either injury or fear.

Some narration explaining the zombie's subservice to this guy would be the easiest way, but to show it is more difficult. I would think the zombies would have to show some sort of order to their movements, like a row of them all bowing the same way, to show that his presence has that effect.

Well thanks for letting me know. I won't change it now but I'll make it good and clear in later pages.
