Stood in firelight, sweltering. Bloodstain on chest like map of violent new continent. Felt cleansed. Felt dark planet turn under my feet and knew what cats know that makes them scream like babies in night. — Rorschach, Watchmen

Chapter 6, Page 14

This is a difficult chapter, with the multiple threads going on. But follow me on one more excursion with Caera before we get back to Jacob and crew.

↓ Transcript
Roger voiceover: Meanwhile, in London...
Kevin: Welcome to Genocide Project Headquarters, Caera. We'll get you a full tour in a bit. First, there's someone I want you to meet.
Caera: Is that Lola Lamb? She's so frail.
Kevin: That's the impression she gives, isn't it? Lola invented our bone ceramization technique. But her own osteoporosis was too far advanced. The process made her skeleton brittle as glass.
Caera: Could I end up like that?
Kevin: No, no. You're young and strong. Just what we're looking for.

    I like the building – reminds me a bit of Broadcasting House! Traffic looks a bit thin for a London daytime, though.

  2. Remus Shepherd says:

    Traffic and pedestrian crowds are difficult to draw, but I have to make an effort to include more of them. 🙂

    On the other hand, the world’s population in 2109 is less than half what it is in 2012, so I’m hoping I can get away with a little thinning of traffic.

    Ditto, that HQ building looks cool.

  4. Dave says:

    Bone ceramization? What affect does ceramic bones have on red blood cell transfer out of marrow?

  5. Remus Shepherd says:

    Bones are porous, with a lot of blood vessels meshed into them. In theory you could replace the hard parts of the bone with unbreakable ceramic without affecting the marrow, the blood vessels, or any of the functions of the bone.

    In theory, at least…
