PAGE 20 – 2 PANELS
1. Wide and thin panel atop the page. Mid-shot. Animal Man lies face down in the mud, he is in pain. He is shirtless with the pants, his usual look this past year. Rain pours down and all is dark; it is night and only the moon casts a faint light through the canopy of the rainforest.
Animal Man: …uugghhhh…
2. Wide shot. This panel is the rest of the page. Animal Man is still down in the mud, at the bottom of the page, and we can now see behind him all of the rainforest lit up by a lightning strike. Standing proudly in the rainforest, reading to pounce from his perch, is Kraven the Hunter.
Hunted: Part 1

I know, this is barely a script and more a high concept. But be damned if it isn't one that made me smile. I'd love to see this crossover happen. I mean, I could have created my own DC hunter character, or maybe there even is one already, but I liked the aesthetic on this page.
Imagine if this just happened in the Animal Man book without warning, no fanfare, just a sneaky crossover. That would be rad.
