In the game, you wear a Hazardous Environment Suit that has a limited power supply that feeds three things: Your oxygen levels (if you are underwater), your flashlight, and your sprinting capability. This comic is a jab at the relative silliness of using the same battery that powers a simple flashlight to also power your ability to run. They don't have AA batteries in the future?|
Posing Notes: I created the flashlight flare in Photoshop, and it pretty much obscures the fact that he is actually holding a flashlight, which is in fact a stun baton that I stuck inside his forearm so only the handle poked out. It took me roughly 76 hours to get this flashlight posing done, so I'm thrilled that you can't actually see it. Here's an unused shot where you can (hopefully: it's pretty dark).
