[I started researching riddles this week, and found that I really, really don't like them, so instead, I decided to research Edward himself. It turns out, he was a really curious kid--incessantly asking questions and such--so I figured that this trait has probably never left him. So, when I think of enquiring minds, I automatically think of...]
Edward Nigma is walking up to a large columned building. A sign nearby reads, "Gotham City Library".
CAPTION: Ever since I was a child, I have questioned the world around me.
He is now seen entering a dark doorway, next to which is a small sign reading, "Grimoire and Occult".
CAPTION: Curiosity is my muse.
He is seen pulling a large, leather-bound book from the shelf.
CAPTION: Some questions, however...
Edward is at a reading-table. His head is upon the table, eyes vacant and dilated, drooling. He has dropped the book, the spine of which reads, "Necronomicon".
CAPTION: Are better left unanswered.
Very nice, Danial. Good combination of the Riddler and Lovecraft. A good idea, and well executed.ReplyDelete
Nice, short script and the line "Curiosity is my muse" sells it for me. Good work!ReplyDelete
Lovecraft has been popping up in my life a lot of late and here he is again. I loved the concept and felt you executed it really well. The image of the riddler going into the library was awesome. Great work, I really enjoyed the page.ReplyDelete
I like the page, and the hook...but it just doesn't feel like a Riddler script to me.ReplyDelete
I think Peter Milligan might have written a Lovecrafty Riddler story many years ago... was it called Dark City?ReplyDelete
