The return of the land sharks, in the biggest single swarm we’ve yet seen.

This is the sort of splashy page that I resented at the time we developed it, because we had so much to do, and I was worried about boring the reader by skimping on story for the sake of art. You can get away with that more in a longer work, and GA in its entirety is pretty long, but in another sense, it’s a page at a time.

But as two-panel layouts go, it’s pretty solid. Like Rana’s sequence, it carefully deploys simplicity to show the simple perspective of its characters (including, at the moment, Penk, whose terror is obvious, and Harky, who is doing his best to think land shark thoughts as he commands them). The storytelling will get more nuanced again soon enough.
