Fight! Fight! Fight!

Oh, and Baso dies.

With laser blasts, I’m not sure it’s clear when characters are just injured or dead. In this case, he’s dead, which is why I included  the tiny “bracket” word balloon as he goes down, to kinda signify a last breath. I did a similar thing with Goshen’s last words. Who knows though, I may end up using the same convention when a character just passes out. In these cases, it would be awesome to steal the “skull balloons” from Usagi Yojimbo whenever a character actually dies. It actually wouldn’t fit the tone and style of Runners, but I have to say it’s a pretty awesome graphic telltale that Stan Sakai came up with for his Usagi series.
