As a treat for CGers and for people who just like to look at this stuff (i've had some requests) i've uploaded two frames from the comic, mainly frame 01 and frame 03 for your use. In frame one, there is a little detail that got cropped includes Dom's tie as he pulls away, and frame 3 was pretty heavily cropped in the comic, so... yeah.
striking technique? No, Erika is not a hitter, she's a graber and breaker :P I guess it never occured to me that people might think she was trying to hit him. Funny how it never occured to me that people might not automatically understand that she was trying to grab him. :P
