The Premise: Rick and Glenn are out scavenging for supplies when they stumble across a large, fenced area, filled with Walkers. They enter an adjacent multistorey building and meet a scientist on the top floor…
PAGE XX (seven panels)
PANEL 1. The scientist is looking out a window with a pair of binoculars as Rick looks over his shoulder.
What is this place?
A field laboratory… or sorts.
PANEL 2. From the POV of the scientist, we see a group of Walkers, down on the field, swarming a deer. The deer has managed to gore several of them with its antlers, but many others are pulling it down from behind.
I study the Walkers--see what makes them tick.
PANEL 3. The scientist has turned around to face Rick and Glenn.
Are you… looking for a cure?
A cure? No, no, no.
They’re dead. There is no cure.
PANEL 4. All three are facing each other in discussion.
Call it, scientific interest.
More like morbid curiosity.
PANEL 5. The scientist is facing out the window again.
I currently have my assistant sourcing some fresh lab rats, if you’d care to stick around.
PANEL 6. Rick and Glenn are looking confused.
PANEL 7. Both Rick and Glenn have been shot in the neck with tranquiliser darts.
From here, Rick and Glenn would wake up on separate platforms out in the fenced area somewhere, and somehow have to find a way to escape, much to the disappointment of the scientist.
