D4ve – Careful What You /Ask: For – MK Stangeland Jr.

(4 Panels)

(Lead In explanation – an alien race finds Earth, and after taking a look at it from orbit for a while, come to a conclusion that’s more or less in line with the ‘robots killed off humans’ back story of the comic. Which, in the aliens minds, means that the robots are dangerous and need to be terminated. So they called in)

Panel 1: A handful of alien capital ships are in orbit over Earth and shooting lasers down at the planets surface.

SXF: Pew! PEW! Pew!

Panel 2: A heavily fortified military bunker underneath Earth’s surface where officers and soldiers are rushing about as they try to coordinate in response to what’s going on above them somehow.

General H0g4n: We need all forces! Call up EVERYONE, active, inactive, retired, EVERYONE!

Panel 3: Close up on D4VE, where we can only see his head without knowing what’s around him.

D4VE (1): Yes?

D4VE (2): Uh-huh.

D4VE (3): I see…

D4VE (4): Where am I?

Panel 4: Wide shot of D4VE as he tries to escape the city as it is getting blow up around him.

D4VE: I’m currently a little busy trying not to die, actually.

  1. Nice opener MK. D4VE's new office life may have taken its toll on his battle readyness :)
