The Twilight Zone – Zoned Out – MK Stangeland Jr.


(9 Panels)

Panel 1: A young man – JIMMY – is sitting in front of a TV. He’s wearing a TWILIGHT ZONE shirt.

NARRATION: Meet Jimmy – a man with a love for a certain TV show. But he’s about to learn that the truth of this TV show might not be what he might expect as he finds himself in – The Twilight Zone!

Panel 2: JIMMY is wide-eyed with shock and surprise as what he’s seeing on his TV isn’t at all what he expected.

TV: Previously on The Twilight Zone, our heroes found themselves caught in the middle as Werewolves and Vampires came to the brink of war!

Panel 3: Close-up on JIMMY’s face as he shouts in horror.

JIMMY: AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!

Panel 4: JIMMY sits up as he wakes up from what was seemingly a nightmare. However, it’s quite clear that something is very wrong because as it so happens, JIMMY looks like a pony in the style of MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC, and is located inside of TWILIGHT SPARKLE’s library treehouse.

JIMMY: Whew, what a nightmare!

Panel 5: JIMMY has another look of shock on his face as he looks to see TWILIGHT SPARKLE standing nearby, who looks a tad confused by how JIMMY is acting.

TWILIGHT SPARKLE (1): What was a nightmare.

JIMMY (1): …

JIMMY (2): What? Where am I?

TWILIGHT SPARKLE (2): My Treehouse Library?

JIMMY (3): Who are you?

TWILIGHT SPARKLE (3): Twilight Sparkle?

Panel 6: Another close-up on JIMMY as he yells in horror at his prediciment.

JIMMY: AAAAAAAAA…

Panel 7: JIMMY, in a bed, sit up as he yet again wakes up.

JIMMY: …HHHHHHHHH!

Panel 8: Distance panel, showing JIMMY sitting in a bed that is located practically in the middle of nowhere, a wilderness that is lit by an ever setting sun, keeping the whole place permanently lit in twilight.

JIMMY: …

Panel 9: Match to PANEL 8.

JIMMY: What?

  1. Nice russian doll/twist within a twist type structure.

    I like the silent beat at the end too.

  2. I like the repeating dream within a dream bit. Reminds me a lot of our Rarebit Fiend week.
