PAGE ONE – 4 PANELS
1. A MAN sits in shadow behind a desk. Only his hands clasped together on the desk in front of him and the eerie white glow of his eyes can be seen through the shadow.
The desk is expensive and lavish, made of dark wood.
The man’s eyes look straight at us, straight through us.
THE MAN: Roswell, global warming, the moon landing, all that giant monster shit in Tokyo…
2. Repeat panel. However the mans face has moved forward slightly. We can see his jaw line and his pearly white teeth as a grin moves over his face.
THE MAN: It’s all true. No bullshit.
3. Repeat panel. However now the man’s smile has faded and his eyes narrowed.
THE MAN: The only reason the world knows anything about this is because the government wants them to.
THE MAN: Scraps of information to keep the people busy.
THE MAN: Lies hidden with truth.
4. Repeat panel. However now the man has his hand out stretched towards us, ready to shake our hands.
THE MAN: Welcome to Planetary. I hope you can handle the real truth ‘cus you wont be quitting.
