I stared at this page for a long time, and I still don't know what to say.

Damn.

Welp. I wanted to say: "Damn. There is blood under HIM." but the comment is now successfully pirated by someone else.
So I will say: "I always appreciate a good shoot-out with ricocheting bullets. It is a classic and the enemy boat should explode later."

Sigh, time to stay up until 3AM again like during the MSV days so no one steals my comments TTuTT

I held back on this comment so Lirvilas wouldn't delete it, and it has to do with clothing...

Aside from Eric's horrible fashion sense, there HAD to be a reason to wear a black suit and tie in the middle of the Indian freakin' Ocean, and THAT reason is because it is made out of Kevlar(tm). The thing is, it doesn't have complete bodily coverage, has NO padding (them hits he's taking are gonna leave HUGE bruises, possibly broken ribs), and his HEAD is unprotected.

FROM WHAT I CAN SEE: Eric may have taken a hit to a hand (unprotected, but not vital, he can still shoot); upper chest (not immediately fatal, there is a LOT of empty space there, and he MAY have further armour in/beneath his shirt); or (this is my best guess, based on the last panel) he took either a hit to his face OR a glancing hit/ricochet (flesh wound) somewhere on his head/face (watch it leave a scar like Tona's).

Why do I put my faith on the last guess? In Panel 4, he is still standing (and presumably, shooting back). Unlike what Hollywood wants you to believe, a killing head-shot (or ANY killing shot, for that matter) will make you crumple instantly like a marionette with the strings cut. Anything less, and Eric Wont. Give. Up. He's in it for the keeps...

Great panel composition!

It may seem small, but the water splashes from the gunfire in panel 3 turned out really cool.

Thank you for noticing that little stuff! Had to play with brush tips for a few minutes to get anything close to what I wanted.
