Metropolis of Destructon freight yards, 2008
india ink and rubber stamp

Depicted here are the most westerly docks of Destructon's freight yards. In the second panel you can see the Epipharm Hydroponic Dome, the only place in all of the Metropolis where any vegetation can be found. Epipharm™ is one of the largest pharmaceutical manufactures and producers of human food supplements. All food is controlled by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) under the 'Beneficial to Human Health Act' and requires a prescription from a certified family nutritionist to obtain. Only the supper rich can afford real hydroponic fruits and vegetables, the rest live on "nutritionally balanced for life" civilian ration packets (CRPs).
- Mr. Sparrow, Postmaster General M.o.D.
