This one has some references to that period in Concerned where Frohman becomes a medic. Obviously, his lack of a medical degree doesn?t stop him from operating on combine soldiers while trapped in an underground tunnel in a city that?s about to explode. But he?s a caring person who puts the needs of others before himself.
And that thing on the ground in panel 4 is supposed to be the flashlight that he dropped when the headcrab jumped him. I need any light I can get in the tunnels here because everything is pitch black. I?ve had to hide lights all over the place in this series of comics so everything is visible, and I still have to make it brighter in Photoshop when I?m putting everything together. The most annoying thing with the lights, however, is that you can still see the actual light bulb through walls and stuff. I?ve been able to cover most of it up with speech bubbles, but there are still a lot of situations where I need to use the clone stamp and spot healing brush to try to hide them.
