Panel 1- Half-page. We see our holder of Pandora's Box walking down a New York City street. His eyes are hidden by his hoodie and baseball cap. Pandora's Box is under his arm, about the size of a cigar box. The sidewalk is not packed, but it's not empty either.

CAPTION: HI.

CAPTION: I'M THE GUY HOLDING THE BOX.

Panel 2: Close on the box under his arm. He's put a few stickers on it, designs up to you, but we can see greek letters carved into the top.

CAPTION: THIS WOULD BE THE PART WHERE I TELL YOU WHO I AM, WHERE I'M COMING FROM, AND WHERE I'M GOING TO.

CAPTION: BUT LIKE THIS BOX...

Panel 3: Close up on his smirking mouth.

CAPTION: THAT'S A BOX I PLAN TO KEEP CLOSED FOR NOW.

  1. A very self-aware page, which is a cool choice. I also like the choice of keeping the identity obscure for at least the beginning.

    My main suggestion for the page would be to switch the last caption to "That's something I plan to keep closed for now", just to avoid the box repetition.

  2. As Grant said whats great about this page is the self aware tone of the narrator, a very bold, yet striking choice, that I feel pays off.

    I also like Grants suggestion of the word change for that last caption, something to that effect makes the last panel flow slightly nicer.

  3. "What's in the booooox?"

    Nice page. I like some of the more meta efforts this week, this included.
