uhm... Colors?
Yes, we are going to fight back. But not here, not now, not in the Colonies. Not even in this star system. Let the word go forth to every man, woman and child who survived this holocaust. Tell them to set sail at once in every assorted vehicle that will carry them.

I like this page's composition!

uhm... Colors?

No color this update. I tried to color it and for some reason it just wasn't happening.. Maybe I'll come back to it some day.

I'm not going off on a ramble here, but thinking of the monochrome as a plot device- as much as the faetanium powered row boats. Some really classic battle scenes have been rendered this way, slipping back several steps of detail to their more raw essentials, even if only for moments. Sometimes even losing theme music, anything that would be missing in a nightmare (notice we have the undead in the Rum line?) Some of those "Spaghetti Westerns" had these scenes too.

This was no time-saving measure  ;)

Lovin it!

So actual skeletons in the closet?

Wait? They seem to be missing in the third pane. So their ghosts too?

That's some awesome haunted and full of fan-service ship that T-Square has there.

I read another comic  that uses monochrome, aside from small splashes of a single color, for events that happened in the past.  And some pages just don't want to be colored.

Okay, so those were the skeletons in T's closet behind the Brigade. For a second there I thought a dead Lisbon was flirting with Sasha, WHICH WOULD BE AWESOME!!!!

And I hate zombies mind you, but it would still be awesome.
Risha and Jay Chan? Yeah, I ship'em.

So T's so bad even the ghosts/reanimated dead things are afraid of her?.. I'd buy that

Well she can't just leave it unattended while she's off skydiving, gotta leave a minimal crew behind to manage things.

Secretly, there's no such thing as faetanium.
Those rowboats are powered by puns.
