Nuclear Meltdown (Jack Kirby style)

Click to see big!

I groove on the reaction of the soldiers to imminent meltdown, (HOLOCAUST TIME! FUCK, YEAH!) but what I really love about this panel is that it can be read left to right or right to left. Perhaps the two soldiers either side of the guy in the middle are speaking at the same time and the guy in the middle is having his mind blown on two fronts. I dunno, these are the things I think about at 3am.
