Escape From Terra, Volume 3.1 - The King & I: Mars / Space Scouts

So if you’re a pair of outlaw senior citizens in the 22nd Century, and after years of loneliness you fall in love all over again, what do you do? You could go on an interplanetary honeymoon to Mars, get yourselves rejuvenated on the side, and try not to get arrested -- or killed.

Meanwhile, your kids back on Ceres are leading a Space Scouts expedition to a strange new planetoid, where a troubled youth from Terra learns a valuable lesson.

The thrilling adventures of life in the belt continue in volume 3.1 of ESCAPE FROM TERRA!

Escape From Terra, Volume 2.4 - The Christmas War

They say history repeats itself. Though 200 years separate them, similar events can unfold in similar ways. And that’s what happens to the Cerereans as they once again must face a military challenge from Terra’s United World government.

Will it finally come to interplanetary war? Or maybe there are other options, drawn from Terra’s own bloody history which might avoid the horror of war. And if there is, what resistance might there be from those who crave the battlefield?

These questions are answered and more in 40 pages of “The Christmas War”.

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
Just outside the air skin, 40 km above. The Pale Man is floating a foot away from the skin, and is igniting an acetylene-oxygen torch.

Caption: As Tobi regales his invited guests, the Security System monitors the doings of his uninvited guest, the Pale Man.

Panel 2
Using a suction-cup hand grip to anchor himself to the skin, the Pale Man uses the torch to cut through the air skin. (At this point he's only cut an inch or two.)

Caption: Modern air skins are made up of nano-scale filaments held in place by nanobots.

Caption (2): If a meteor or other object punches a hole in the air skin, the nanobots can regroup, repair the damage and seal the leak.

Panel 3
The Pale man has cut a gash almost three feet wide. We can see a sheet of pressuirzed atmosphere blowing out through the gash now.

Caption: The Little Prince's air skin is more sophisticated. If he wanted to, Tobi could order it to eat the intruder.

Panel 4
The Pale Man is now attempting to push himself through the gash but is having to fight the atmosphere rushing outward.

Caption: But Tobi is curious about what this fellow is up to, so he has ordered the nanobots to stand down for right now.
