I haven't checked your comic out before, so I'm glad I landed behind you in the queue today! I like the look of your art, it had a cool indie-comic feel. Also refreshing to see another black-and-white comic on the site (I sometimes feel like I'm the only one doing b&w)!
Oh wow, I really like this page. Your composition experiment worked super well, I got the impression of a freeze-frame slow-motion sort of scene even before i scrolled down to read your author's note, I think the lack of dialogue was a good call. I like your style a lot too, it really evokes that sorta golden age american comics feel. Great pacing and great page!
In today's Nuclear Summer 1997, some plot and a scene transition, or; Dave attempts to draw a motorcycle.
The color palette here is nice with cool colors next to the color wheel. It's easy on the eyes and helps things feel relaxed even with the chaos in the military.
Also liked having a whole panel to drinking some tea.
I know your comic is usually not colored, but I think your colors look fantastic here. Also, I think the Venom-like creature in the background looks extra creepy lurking about back there.
Okay so we must have been posting at the same time so, I'll comment on your page as well. :)
I think you've nicely set up that the child is in danger here not only from the person forcing her to do whatever it is she has to do but also because there is a reptile involved that may cause the child harm as well. I don't know what is going on because I am not familiar with your story, but just from your work on this page, you've got me concerned about this child and what this child is being forced to go through.

Good picture compositions, but the perspectives and colour contrast could use some work. The contrasts are too small in some places and the lineart is pretty subtle, so it could use some more contrasts to make it more readable. You have a good foundation to work on, though!
