PAGE 1 (ONE PANEL) PAGE 1, Panel 1. In a some what small super sleek space craft our “hero” Japache Jones soars through the stars. Determined as ever he glares forward.

Cody puts his face close to the bars as he holds them. I think a side view would work for this. CODY: To ask you some questions. I think we deserve some answers! GWONGAAR: Fine, but make it quick. I have a ship to run. PAGE 2, Panel 3. From outside the cell we see a very sceptical Blair from behind the shoulder of Gwongarr.
