The website is worth checking out for treasures such as this gem.
There's a ton of mass destruction in Gundam, but this shot in particular really screams despair under a looming, apocalyptic, but still entirely artificial threat, especially with the context of the Federation not even bothering to try and evacuate its own civilians, leaving them in the dark and unwarned despite advanced knowledge. Actively stymying the "terrorists" trying to ferry as many refugees to safety as possible.
And the art style is so evocative, it does a superb job exhibiting the sheer terror of being trapped in an inescapable cycle of poverty, incarceration, destitution, and dehumanization.
I'm an artist and I run the adventure comic Rootborn.
