Planetary - Arrival - R.A. Wonsowski
Panel 1 - Head and shoulders shot: ELIJAH SNOW, his head on a pillow, wakes up, one hand's fingers pinching the bridge of his nose, eyes shut in exhaustion, his other hand's fingers prying open the blinds near his bed.
SNOW (small lettering): bugger...
Panel 2 - Zoom in for head shot. SNOW holds blinds open, his face close to them. His eyes are wide in shock.
SNOW (regular size lettering): Bugger...
Panel 3 - Wide shot: the Village.
SNOW (from one of the windows): BUGGER!!!
Panel 4 - SNOW, now jumped out of bed, touches his lapel, and sees the penny-farthing button on it, the number "6" in red in the center:
SNOW looks furious.
Panel 5 - SNOW turns his head, hears a knock on the door. He looks as if he's ready to beat seven shades of crap out of whoever took him Prisoner.
SoundFX: tok tok tok
Panel 6 - SNOW opens the door to reveal the new NUMBER 2 of the Village (who looks a LOT like the old Number 6). The new NUMBER 2 (as we know from his button) is raising his right hand, held in an "okay" sign, up to his eye. SNOW looks surprised again, as this was the last person he expected to see.
NUMBER 2: Good morning, Number 6. I bear a message from our old friend, Dowling - -
NUMBER 2: "Be seeing you."
SNOW (small lettering again): Bugger...
CAPTION: Next Issue: 21st Century Schizoid Man!
