All panels are seen from the point of view of Rick Grimes.
We see a deserted street. In the foreground of the panel is a battered road sign. It reads PEACHTREE INDUSTRIAL BLVD.
We see a deserted bank. In the background is what appears to have once been a Kroger grocery store. The entire place looks like a huge fight went down.
We see the parking lot of the Kroger and the front of the store. The doors have been busted and a few walkers are wondering around, but not much else is there.
We see the inside of the grocery store. Lights are still on, suggesting a generator running somewhere. Up ahead to the right and left are a couple of people with guns, walking with them at the ready. They are checking the shelves for anything edible.
The team advances on the stockroom. A few walkers pop out but are easily dispatched with a few bullets. Groans come from deeper in the stockroom.
The team goes deeper into the storeroom. A group of about 15 or so walkers are banging on the door to the meat cooler. The group takes a few shots at them and draws their attention.
The group runs forward, taking out walkers as they go. Basically just a big gunfight.
The last walker falls, but the looks on the faces of the two people with Rick are that of panic. They know the ruckus will attract more.
One guy grabs a buggy to load up on food. We see, from Rick's point of view, Rick step to the cooler door and open it.
Inside the cooler is a young girl, perhaps 14 or 15. She's wearing a tank top and jean shorts. On her face is a pair of shades. Her skin is pasty and her lips are blue, suggesting she's been hiding in the cold for a while. Adding to the evidence are the various food wrappers and empty cans littered about.
Rick reaches down and picks up the frail girl. She looks uncertain, but somewhat relieved. She has a bag of potato chips in each hand, her knuckles white with her death grip.
Close up on the girl's face. She has begun to smile, her face beaming with the realization that she's no longer alone. In the reflection of her shades we see the same smile on Rick's face.
CAPTION: Let's go.
Long as the page was, the ending still made me 'awww'. :-)ReplyDelete
This page could easily just be comprised of the final 3-5 panels and still not lose an punch. Especially because those panels are pretty damn good. It's a solid piece of storytelling.ReplyDelete
You have no idea the loathing i have for this script. I really didn't know what to do with the character though.ReplyDelete
Split over a few pages this would have more impact but there's certainly no need for loathing, Brandon!ReplyDelete
Says me... and I KNOW loathing!ReplyDelete
