Hellboy - Once and Future - Ben Rosenthal

1.  Hellboy is walking towards a huge wooden door.  He has a sword in hand and is determined.

CAPTION (Hellboy)
This has gone on long enough.

2.  From inside.  The doors are shattering under the force of Hellboy’s boot as he kicks it down.

CAPTION (Hellboy)
People dyin’ in the streets and they just sit there. 

3.  Hellboy is walking down a long isle.  People stand back as he marches.

CAPTION (Hellboy)
I didn't want to have to pull this, but got no choice now.

4.  The Queen of England sits at her throne.  The sword Hellboy was carrying has been thrown at the Queen’s feet by him.

CAPTION (Hellboy – off panel)
To quote a wise man --

5.  A close up of Hellboy.

Hail to the King, Baby.


  1. Worth it for that last line. Plus...legitmate claim!

  2. What a damn great concept. I love that last line and also how you don't sign post the significants of the sword you trust your reads to get it, thats some good writing.
