Splatter-zone

The next double-spread features the rather infamous Air lock Sequence - certainly not one for the squeamish as one of the miners steps into the airlock / lift which depressurises as it goes down without a space suit...

Here in the comic version there is more emphasis on the other miners reacting in shock trying to get to the other guy before the air lock door closes:-



I wonder if the movie was a pre cursor of some of those splatter exploitation movies, like videodrome?

One thing is for sure Total Recall took its inspiration from this sequence and It certainly went a lot further... and not just in splatter but also in the liberal bending of the laws of physics...

Anyways here is my pencils of the above...



The splat itself occurs on the next page! You have been duly warned - But the only splatter on this page will be of lots of ink....
