Cell 36

So here we are with the finished page

and the double spread that goes with it...


So, in the movie O'Neil tries to get Spota to talk by telling him how "accidents can happen" in a zero gee cell, that you can loose all sense of direction and so on with Monotone with him...

O'Neil implicitly instructs Monotone to make sure no-one else gets in where Spota is being held...

and then goes off to see Shepherd again...

Comes back to the cell (on his own) to find Spota has been murdered with his air pipe cut and blood dripping out his air hose

Now it could have been Monotone...?

In the comic adaptation the frankly unnecessary second visit to Shepherd is cut out - but Monotone is clearly seen here with O'Neil discovering Spota murdered...

Apart from apparently far too easy and free access to knifes in Outland (this is already the 3rd one in the story so far) the other thing that the movie make reasonably clear is that the cells are secure access which means only the police (of which O'Neil is the overall person in charge) have access..

Now in the comic it could not have really be Monotone who did the murder as he is there with O'Neil...

This means someone else is the frame, but who...

It will be a while before we find out

Tomorrow another murder attempt is made, but by who and to whom...
