Dr. Dinosaur - Behold! An Ordinary Angler! - Grant McLaughlin
Four panels of equal size. They each span the width of the page and are a quarter of the page in height.
The scene: Dr. Dinosaur is fishing. No seriously. He's in the middle of a huge, picturesque lake. It's gorgeous. There's trees in the background. Maybe a mountain or two. It's pretty much the nicest fishing scene you could imagine for a comic book featuring an atomic powered robot and his talking dinosaur nemesis.
But I digress.
PAGE 2 (Page 1 was a splash page of Dr. Dinosaur fishing. It was glorious.)
1 - Dr. Dinosaur continues to sit in his plain ol' rowboat, fishing rod in hand (claw?). As on the first page, he is in full angler attire - one of those ridiculous hats with hooks and stuff all over them, a plaid shirt, overalls, and so forth. His line is in the water. He watches on patiently. Of course, patiently for Dr. Dinosaur is still a pretty goofy expression. No dialogue.
2 - Dr. Dinosaur and his boat have not moved. However, another boat appears to be coming in from the left side of the panel. At the moment, all we can see is the prow of the second boat. No dialogue.
3 - Dr. Dinosaur and his boat have not moved. The second boat has pulled up beside him. It's Atomic Robo. No dialogue.
4 - Dr. Dinosaur's line has been grabbed by something. His rod bends against the force. Dr. Dinosaur looks towards Atomic Robo, giving him the same goofy face he's had those first three panels.
ATOMIC ROBO: What are you doing?
