The design of Candy's/Xenon's suit admittedly operates more on the Rule of Cool rather than on practicality. But at least she can switch off that red light if she wants to sneak up on someone in the dark...

In the dark, in space, with a murderous psycho stalking her... Houdini had an easier escape!

Sounds like a time-tested formula to me - even though the "mysterious psycho stalker" usually isn't human.

Good timing there, goggles.

I figured that since I am giving Babette those fancy space goggles, they should also serve a purpose for the plot - and saving her in the nick of time from getting K.O.-ed is I pretty good purpose, I think. ;-)

Throwing punches at zero g must be tricky. And cool spacesuits are always nice to see.

Oooh, you are right! Without gravity "pinning down" your mass, Newton's Third Law of Motion must be way more noticeable whenever you move...

Also thank you regarding Xenon's spacesuit! My initial thought was that an astronaut dressed in black has the potential to be scary as heck...

Panels 3 and 4 work great with the waiting for the night vision to kick in and then it does and Babette has a punch coming right at her. Nicely done!
