The prison cell panels were devilishly difficult to light properly for photographing. The bars kept blocking the light and/or line of sight to important things like the faces. It was so fiddly, in the end I partly gave up, which is why you can't see Prof. Jones properly in the last panel.

Oh, and if you're wondering why the Nazis let the good Haken keep the friggin' Spear of Longinus when they tossed him into a cell, fer cryin' out loud:

  1. The Spear allows the wielder to cloud the minds of those who would oppose him.
  2. How smart do you think Nazis are anyway?
  3. It was necessary for the plot.
Oh, and blame zem for the punchline. It is, of course, based on the famous line uttered by Dr Leonard "Bones" McCoy in Star Trek: "Damnit Jim! I'm a doctor, not a miracle-worker!"
2012-08-29 Rerun commentary: As time went on, I got a lot better at dealing with the lighting in prison scenes. I won't tell you now how I did it, because I want to keep you in suspense! Hahahah!

Oddly enough, those scenes with characters in prison cells mostly involved Monty and his dad. Or occasionally Serron and Iki Piki.
