Nightcrawler - Blink Of An Eye - Niel Jacoby

Panel 1: Arcade is walking warily through the hall of mirrors with a gun in his hand.

Arcade: I'M WARNING YOU, IF YOU DON'T COME OUT, I'LL HAVE TO HUNT YOU DOWN!

Panel 2: We see Nightcrawler's image in a few of the mirrors.

SFX: BAMF!

Nightcrawler: AH, MEIN HERR, YOU WILL HAVE A TOUGH TIME OF THAT.

AFTER ALL, YOU MAY SPEND AN HOUR TRACKING ME, AND YOU'LL BE WITHIN A SCHWEIN'S TAIL OF MY HIDING SPACE...

SFX: BAMF!

Panel 3: Nightcrawler's image is now on a different variety of mirrors. Arcade is getting antsy.

Nightcrawler: AND, ACH DU LEIBER, WITHIN THE BLINK OF AN EYE, I'M SOMEWHERE ELSE ENTIRELY.

AND THEN, EVEN BEFORE YOU KNOW IT...

Inset Panel: Close on Arcade's startled face.

SFX: BAMF!

Panel 4: Nightcrawler is right behind Arcade, and has applied a sleeper hold.

Nightcrawler: ...I'M RIGHT BEHIND YOU.

  1. You had me at Arcade, he is one of my all time favourite Villains. Then when you add to that your great Nightcrawler dialogue and cool visual beat to end on you have a damn good page here.

  2. Nicely done, very tense, a little creepy, and a great closing panel.

  3. Creepy page but with the tables turned somewhat, presenting Nightcrawler as the menacing presence whilst Arcade quakes in fear.

  4. Good example of how awesome teleportation can be.

  5. Really good marriage of powers and setting. The hall of mirrors and Nightcrawler's teleportation compliment each other excellently, and you tie it all together with the intereaction with Arcade. Well done.
