Roka obviously has the most responsibility as the captain and leader of the group. I wanted to acknowledge that by having him make sure Bocce and Sky were safe (or at least “safe enough”) before ordering the Brimia to bug out. Even while under heavy fire, he’s going to make sure his crew is okay before he looks after himself.

I’m really happy with how panel 4 turned out. I thought it would be a cool visual to see a ship ascending straight up vertically, with another ship matching it and continuing to fire upon it the entire time.
