Tall robot-like figures are gathered in a still line towering over a ruined city
the mighty engines, so great and wonderful in their power and complexity, so unearthly in their tortuous forms, rose weird and vague and strange out of the shadows towards the light.

Description

A number of tall robot-like figures with long stick legs are gathered in a still line towering over a ruined city.
The caption reads in this Belgian edition:

les formidables engins, d’une puissance et d’une complexité si grandes et si surprenantes, si peu terrestres par leurs formes tortueuses et bizarres, montaient, sinistres, étranges et vagues, hors des ténèbres, vers la lumière.
