The Lizard - One of Us - J.D. Coughlan
SET-UP: Dr. Connors has been kidnapped from prison. He is now in a dark room, tied to a chair, bag over his head.
A series of small, tight panels; two rows of three, with one large panel taking up the bottom third of the page.
Panel 1: Close on Connors. The bag is being removed (suggest it being pulled off quickly). His eyes are squinting, adjusting to the bright light shining in his face. There are men standing behind him.
SFX (BAG): WHUFF
Panel 2: Connors' POV. A man in a suit stands in front of him. The man cannot be seen very well as the light is shining from behind him.
MAN: Good afternoon, Doctor Connors. It has been a while.
Panel 3: Close on Connors again. Confrontational but a little afraid too.
CONNORS: What is this? Who are you people?
Panel 4: Connors' POV again. The man is leaning forward slightly. His face, slightly more visible, shows concern, but it is still largely hidden.
MAN: Oh my. You truly don't remember a thing, do you?
Panel 5: Same as before, the man standing up straight again, lost in shadow.
MAN: You see, Dr. Connors, your "accident" all those years ago did not transform you into a grotesque hybrid.
MAN: It merely reasserted your true nature...
Panel 6: Close on Connors; now completely horrified.
MAN (OP): It is rare we lose a member of the Order...
Panel 7: Large. We now see that the man is in fact a lizard-person! He is grinning vilely. Behind him we can now see several others like him, all grinning too.
MAN: And you've been lost a very long time.
MAN: Welcome back, brother.
