I too used to stare at this image and wonder what exactly was going on! Is the jetpacker escaping the horrors below, or some kind of killing machine sent in to sort it out? Love the way the pistol shares it's power source with the jetpack! It's an amazing painting and still looks contemporary today!

This is truly an amazing picture. I often wondered as a kid about this picture who was this and why was he firing his weapons. I even thought that it seems eminent that a jet pack failure was in his future unbeknownst to him and what would I do if I was him.
