PAGE ONE – 5 PANELS.
Page wide panel. Close up on the hand of MALEKITH, his fingernails are long and brittle. He holds the black knight chess piece between his thumb, index and middle finger. The knight is being placed onto the chessboard into a checkmate position against the white king.
Check mate Odinson.
Cut to. OLD KING THOR (as seen in the recent Thor God of Thunder series) He sits on the throne of Asgard. A huge tankard of ale rests on the arm of the throne, and barrels and caskets of ale are stacked and lie all around the throne area.
Not even all the ale of Asgard can make this damned game enjoyable.
An aged and wrinkled Malekith sits in a large carved seat, one leg resting over the side of the chairs arm. He toys with the white king chess piece in one hand.
Beating you so easily has even started to lose its charm on me.
Cut back to Thor. He stands up from his throne, his tankard spilling to the floor. MJOLNIR is now gripped tightly in his hands.
Let us relive the good old days then you accused fool.
To your feet coward, battle is upon you.
Cut to Malekith, a slight grin creeping up the side of his mouth as he pushes himself up from his seat.
We’re the last of our kind left alive and you still wish to battle.
Ha. Good show old man.
Now, lets see what fight you still have in you god of thunder.
You really captured the voice of Jason Aaron's run here, and I like the intellectual, and then less-than-intellectual, interplay between the two.ReplyDelete
Agreed, I always love the themes of old patterns repeating even into old age, trying to recapture past glories. Well done, Shaun.Delete
