For thematic purposes, the page should be done in Black and White. Each panel should be of an equal size and stretch the entire horizontal of the page.
Panel 1: A man, MR. BEST, sits at a booth in a smoke filled pub. His face is obscured by a certain lack of lighting. A drink sits on the table in front of him, and a few miscellaneous individuals sit nearby to listen to him speak.
MR. BEST (1): These artists today like to think they have phonomancy figured out. They don’t.
MR. BEST (2): In all our modern history, only four men can ever claim to be true phonomancers.
Panel 2: MR. BEST continues to talk, even as his identity continues to be obscured. The smoke around him begins to form crude music notes.
MR. BEST (1): There’s a reason their music remains as popular as it is. Just like there’s a reason they took the world by storm in the first place.
MR. BEST (2): They weren’t just artists, they were bloody magicians.
Panel 3: MR. BEST continues to talk as the smoke notes begin to come together – they should make out the part of the tune of “I Want to Hold Your Hand” for anyone who’s willing to try to figure out what song the notes represent.
MR. BEST (1): I could have been one of them. I was one of them, once. But then we discovered the magic.
MR. BEST (2): The other three, they thought we should use it. But I didn’t believe in it. So I left, and was replaced with a Starr.
Panel 4: The panel is cut in half by the smoke and the notes it’s forming, with MR. BEST relegated to one side while the rest of the panel makes room for another scene. The right half of the page should be highly recognizable as being from The Ed Sullivan show as he introduces The Beatles.
MR. BEST: Plenty of people claim to know their history, but few know the truth about the origins of…
ED SULLIVAN (1): (Caption Box) Ladies and Gentlemen…
ED SULLIVAN (2): (Caption Box) …THE BEATLES!
Originally, I considered doing a page which featured Elvis as a phonomancer. But then I discovered the heavy British angle the comic seems to have. Thus resulted what you see here.
