It Was A Dark And Stormy Night - by Snoopy and R.A. Wonsowski

Panel 1 - SNOOPY sitting on his dog house at his typewriter.

CAPTION:  It was a dark and stormy night. 

Panel 2 - Crime Alley.  THOMAS WAYNE steps in front of his wife MARTHA and young son BRUCE, as JOE CHILL shoots him in the stomach.

CAPTION:  Suddenly, a shot rang out! 

Panel 3 - GREEN ARROW kicks open a door, arrow nocked in his bow, as BLACK CANARY lets loose a sonic scream, blowing everything back.

CAPTION - A door slammed. The maid screamed. 

Panel 4 - PSYCHO-PIRATE on a Carnival cruise ship, laughing as everyone panics.  WONDER WOMAN swings in from behind from her golden lasso.  

CAPTION:  Suddenly, a pirate ship appeared on the horizon! 

Panel 5 - On Apokolips, hundreds of HUNGER DOGS worship a giant statue of DARKSEID.

CAPTION:  While millions of people were starving, the king lived in luxury. 

Panel 6 - Looking up, high above the roof of a barn and silo, a young CLARK KENT launches into a clear blue sky like a streak.

CAPTION:  Meanwhile, on a small farm in Kansas, a boy was growing up.

Panel 7 - Back to SNOOPY on his dog house at his typewriter, still typing away.

SNOOPY (thought balloon):  Still classic, but next time, I'm working with Stan Lee...


  1. I really like the melding of subjects that you have here. The text reads like a Peanuts comic, while the visuals deliver some classic DC fare. Fun idea and good execution.

  2. Grant says I wanted to hear. Cool idea and nice script mate. I love the bookends of snoppy adds a nice narrative theme to the piece.
