Ryan K. Lindsay - Soon Enough - Grant McLaughlin
1 - A young girl (maybe 12 or so) stands in a comic book store in front of a shelf full of comic book trades. She looks somewhat intimidated (think "deer in the headlights"). A clerk is shelving books nearby. No dialogue.
2 - The girl turns to the clerk. The clerk leans forward on her knees, moving herself closer to the girl's height.
GIRL (quietly): E-excuse me?
3 - The girl is gaining some confidence. The clerk puts on a pensive look, pondering the question in an attempt to come up with the most appropriate suggestion.
GIRL (1): I want to read comics, but I dunno where to start.
GIRL (2): Can you help me?
4 - The clerk has a clear "aha!" moment. She has a look of pleased satisfaction on her face at what she's thought of.
CLERK: I think I have just the thing.
5 - The clerk grabs a book off the shelf. No dialogue.
6 - The clerk holds out a comic book. She wears a big smile.
CLERK: Have you ever heard of Ryan K. Lindsay?
