Mister Miracle - The Great Escape - Grant McLaughlin
This script takes place in the home of Mister Miracle and Big Barda. There's nothing particularly special about it, but that's where it's happening. Three rows of panels, two panels per row.
1 - Big Barda looks towards the stairs and yells up to her husband. She is dressed in a classy looking dress. The kind of thing you'd wear to the theatre or an expensive restaurant.
BIG BARDA: Scott, we need to get going!
2 - Extend the image from panel one, just dividing it by the gutter to show that it's a new panel. Here we see the empty stairs. No dialogue.
3 - Big Barda is walking up the stairs.
BIG BARDA: Scott?
4 - At the top of the stairs, Big Barda is walking down the hallway towards the room where Mister Miracle is.
BIG BARDA: Come on, we're going to be late.
5 - Big Barda standing in the doorway of the room where Mister Miracle is. She looks a little upset, her hands on her hips.
BIG BARDA: Have you forgotten that you promised to take me to the ballet tonight?
6 - Mister Miracle, wearing some really plain and boring looking clothing, is halfway through slipping out the open window. He looks towards Big Barda (and the reader) with an incredibly sheepish look on his face.
MISTER MIRACLE (1): Err...
MISTER MIRACLE (2): What gives you that idea?
Forgive me, but I'm not entirely certain that I've ever read anything with Mister Miracle, so I don't have a great grasp on his or any of his related characters' voices. For example, I have no idea if Big Barda would call him Scott or not. Or if she'd want to go to the ballet (although I think it would be an excellent addition to her character if she would).
