A tall robot-like creature shoots a ray gun across a river where a steamboat leans to one side
They had passed by me, and two were stooping over the frothing, tumultuous ruins of their comrade. The third and fourth stood beside him in the water, one perhaps two hundreds yards from me, the other towards Laleham. The generators of the Heat-Rays waved high, and the hissing beams smote down this way and that.

Description

A tall robot-like figure with long stick legs and wide eyes shoots a ray gun across a river where a steamboat moored to the crowded bank leans perilously to one side.
The caption reads in this Belgian edition:

Ils avaient passé tout près de moi et deux d’entre eux étaient penchés sur les ruines écumeuses et tumultueuses de leur camarade. Les deux autres étaient debout dans l’eau auprès de lui, l’un à deux cents mètres de moi, l’autre vers Laleham. Ils agitaient violemment les générateurs du Rayon Ardent et le jet sifflant frappait en tous sens et de toutes parts.
