Queen & Country – Chace; Tara Chace – MK Stangeland Jr.

(5 Panels)

Panel 1: TARA CHACE is sitting in a movie theater, popcorn in hand and soda in a holder next to her. The lights are down and while we don’t see what the movie on the screen is, the words coming from the screen will make it pretty clear what she’s watching.

MOVIE (1): (Off panel) Bond.

MOVIE (2): (Off panel) James Bond.

TARA: (Thought Balloon) I’ve a split opinion on the matter.

Panel 2: TARA continues to watch as she munches on some popcorn.

SFX: (From TARA’s munching) *munch*munch*

MOVIE: (Off panel) [Music Notes – (If these are written as to line up with anything, they should line up with one of the generic 007 themes common to most if not all the films)

TARA: (Thought Balloon) On the one hand, being an actual British Secret Agent makes it difficult to enjoy watching a fictional account that plays with the rules so loosely.

Panel 3: TARA continues to watch as she sips her soda.

MOVIE: (Off panel) Vodka Martini. Shaken, not stirred.

TARA: (Thought Balloon) On the other hand, he’s such a British icon that it’s hard not to be a fan.

Panel 4: TARA continues to sit and watch the movie.

MOVIE (1): (Off Panel) BOOM!

MOVIE (2): (Off Panel) Bam! Bam! Bam!

Panel 5: TARA smirks a little as she continues to watch the movie.

MOVIE: (Off Panel) Oh, James

TARA: (Thought Balloon) His looks don’t hurt his case, either, I guess.

  1. I like the idea. I feel Tara may be a bit more critical of Bond though (stickler, I know).
