Harry Osborn - Goblin Come Knockin' - Simon McDonald

PAGE 2

PANEL ONE
We're at Harry Osborn's cabin overlooking the Vermillion Lakes, Mt. Rundle looming overhead. It's a picturesque setting, early morning Winter sun piercing through a thin layer of cloud. Harry's come here to get away, to be alone and be one with nature, where the name Osborn carries no ominous overtone. At the forefront of this panel is Harry's dog, barking at something we're unable to perceive from this angle. In the background, approaching us from the cabin, comes Harry, rifle in hand, dressed for the weather.

DOG
Ruff! Ruff!

HARRY OSBORN
Swear to God, if this is another...

PANEL TWO
Tight panel of Harry's eyes, bulging wide.

HARRY OSBORN
What...

PANEL THREE
Largest panel on the page. Harry and his canine companion are looking down at a body, gutted savagely, blood pooled in the snow. It's a man, that's for certain, gauging by his gait and thick forearms and thighs, but we can't identify him because of the Green Goblin mask covering his face.

  1. A fun one pager. The mysterious body with the mask is a great visual and could work on so many levels in a larger story. Cool stuff.

  2. Ooo. Mysterious!

    Nice idea, and I would love to see it play out over the course of an issue or three.

    Also: I'm dying to know what Harry thought it was going to be. A lot of pesky visitors up at the Vermillion Lakes?

  3. I like where you're going with it. How would you freak out a former super villain? You'd attack his weakest point - in Harry's case, his fragile and at times unstable mind. Good work Sime.

  4. Hmm, this one doesn't completely work for me. The set up isn't really anything and the pay off also intrigues mildly but something rang hollow for me on that one.

    It's good. Not quite great. :\

  5. The last panel is pretty striking and I like the storyline it promises.

    It could have maybe done with a but more buildup or tension.
