The Attache - Realisation - Ben Rosenthal


1.  A middle aged man sits in a bar booth.  He is by himself and because the booth is out of site of the main bar area nobody bothers him.  He is scruffy looking - he is down on his luck.  On the table sits the attache case just to the right of the man.  It is open.  He is looking at a picture in his hands, eyes wide.

CAPTION (Man)
For years I have blaming everyone else for the way my life has turned out.

Julia left me for another guy.


2.  The man is looking over at the case with the photo still in his hands.

CAPTION (Man)
Fired after ten years with the company.  All because they couldn't handle my criticisms of their bad science.

Now this.  One hundred bullets to kill the man responsible for my life of misery.


3.  A view from behind the man so we can see the photo that he is looking at.  It is a picture of himself, looking much cleaner and arrogant.

CAPTION (Man)
I only think I'll need one.

  1. Now I want to know about the bad science! :)

    Nice page. The "it's a photo of you" thing was done in 100 Bullets but you've come at it from an entirely different angle.

  2. Love it. I haven't read a lot of 100 Bullets, so I haven't encountered this page's comic equivalent. That being said, I really dig your page. You kind of get the feeling of what's coming, but that last line sells the whole thing.

  3. I've not read past the first trade so I can't say I've encountered the equivalent either.

    I like the twist on the concept here though, the bullets not finding their intended purpose, etc.
