Dracula - Waterlogged - Danial Carroll


PAGE ONE (four panels)


PANEL 1. Mid-shot of a highly malnourished Dracula, staring right at us. His hair and clothing are swirling around him weightlessly. He is underwater.

CAPTION:
I won't bore you with how I found myself here?


PANEL 2. Full view of Dracula, revealing that his feet are shackled to a cement block.

CAPTION:
Suffice to say that that I was caught off-guard in a weakened state.


PANEL 3. Close up of Dracula's red eyes. Despite the closeness, you can tell he's smiling.

CAPTION:
None of that matters now...


PANEL 4. From behind Dracula, we can see a large shark swimming up to him.

CAPTION:
For fate has smiled upon me.

  1. That's just the kind of insane high concept pitch - Dracula versus Jaws - I can see Marvel coming up with in the 70s, and for that Danial, I salute you. The dialogue wasn't quite there for me, but that's just my niggle this week.

  2. I fear for what the result of this showdown might be - VAMPIRE SHARK! That could make for a pretty awesome villain.

    That said, I hate to be picky on the grammar and whatnot, but I can't help but notice that the first line is a question. Was that intentional?

  3. No, it wasn't. The original line was something like, "How did I find myself here?", and I obviously forgot to change it. Thanks for pointing it out. I'll edit it in the morning :)

  4. I forgot to comment on this one - Danial, I love it. The underwater concept played so well to the reveal of the shark. What happens from there - golden.
