Up close and personal

So continuing on from the previous double page spread - this time we are treated to a half a page of the naked prostitute being put through a medical scanner....

As before this is a departure from the movie, in which yes the prostitute is naked but shes put into a cylinder type scanner (completley enclosed) much like modern MRI scanners in hospitals - and she is at a distance from either O Neil or Lazarus and as before remains mostly out of shot and only there to remind everyone what is being scanned

Where as Steranko has once again gone for more "sexualisation" - which does become a bit clearer when the next page comes along..

But, wait there is a brand new stylistic decision being made right here, the two panels below.  Up until now, it's nearly always been at least 4 if not 5 tiny panels, and what is surprising is that there could easily be a solid black line (making more panels) between O' Neil and Lazarus...

So this must be leading up to something, right? Find what that is in a few days...

Tomorrow, I will start on the next page - and once again find, all the "action" happens on the right hand side...
