I thought I'd respond to Bob's comment, even though so far I've made a point of not interjecting myself into the many discussions here about what is or isn't scientifically accurate or realistic in the comic. I love reading all the speculation, and don't think it's the author's place to try and clear up any misconceptions.

In the case of the ship obviously coming to rest on a steep angle, while most of the interior scenes seem to show it lying flat, I have to plead artistic license. I've spent a lot of time thinking about this, and decided that having all the backgrounds slanted just looked bad and made drawing the perspective very awkward. I could contrive some pseudo-scientific explanation about grav fields or whatever, but honestly it's just an aesthetic choice. There will be an explanation in the comic for all of this, but that's way in the future, and I thought in this case I'd just come out and explain my decision. Thanks to everyone for all the comments.

Creating a realistic looking spaceship environment is hard, and you're doing a really good job!

Even with a controlled landing (and in mountainous terrain), the interior is remarkably intact. I'd expect the bodies in particular to be in pieces. Did the ship have some kind of inertial dampening tech?

I'm confused. Does the ship have some kind of internal gravity that causes things to be at right angles while the ship is grounded on a slope? If it does have a grav field, shouldn't it have been bollixed by whatever killed the rest of the ship's systems? I feel like I'm missing something obvious here.

What's obvious is that this is a science fiction story and we can't expect it to be totally realistic or scientifically accurate. Just roll with it.
