How did their spaceship crash and why?
What circumstances led up to this violent situation?
Was the man who survived the captain of the ship?
What planet are they on?
Will he be able to escape now somehow?

Those are some great questions!

It is too bad we'll never know the answers! XD

This was a small vignette (a short story meant to be incomplete)

Daniel pretty much gave me some unlettered pages and said, "come up with a short story," so I came up with a short, revenge story about a man trying to avenge his father's death by tracking the murderers across space

I believe that Daniel's original take was much like you have in mind: that is, a bunch of guys stuck in an empty planet after their spaceship crashes (think about a space prison). The kicker was that,after the crash only one gun made it through the rubble. So, everyone is trying to survive (and kill each other) for the possession of the gun, as this raises their chance of survival.

The guy who has the gun becomes the number one target inside the planet, so everyone is up to kill him. He has an advantage, but also limited ammo, so he must do his best to defend himself and weed out the prisoners while trying to save just about every bullet he can.

Sadly, the story was never made into a full comic

Cool beans!

wow that went dark..

Yes, beauty depends on the situation you find yourself in. This sort of reminded me on Dark star, the beauty of the universe, and how the crew just went more and more nuts.

Space stories almost always end up with the crew gradually loosing their sanity, and killing each other.

Been stuck at home for the past two weeks, and I'm starting to feel a little insane! XD
