Why Rudolph?

It is that time again.

Each Christmas week for the past few years the tenured writers here at Thought Balloons have put aside their differences (I guess) and chosen to write on an X-Mas character. This year we bring you a week of the shunned loner turn leader of magical flying reindeer, Rudolph.

When you think about it Rudolph has a lot in common with comic book heroes. He can fly, is shunned by those close to him for being different and pulls a fat man in a suit. In a sleigh - it's not like he's Silk Spectre.

Merry Christmas to everyone from us here at Thought Balloons!

    PANEL 1

    Inside a forest where winter snow has fallen, smoke is rising from an unseen disaster behind the thicket of trees. Flames have sprung around the foliage and scraps of metal can be seen on the floor. Emerging from the smoke is RUDOLPH, limping with one eye closed, scars across his body.

    CAPTION 1- Over Germany the attack causes an old man and his sleigh to crash into the woods below...

    PANEL 2

    Further out from the forest and into a clear field blanketed with snow, RUDOLPH is swaying as if about to fall.

    CAPTION 1- Only one walks away...

    CAPTION 2- But even a legend that once burned so bright...

    PANEL 3

    Bird’s eye view on RUDOLPH now lying in the snow, dead. The panel is pure white except for the hoof prints RUDOLPH caused and a trickle of blood that accompanies them.

    CAPTION 1- Now no longer glows...
