Red Hulk - Through discipline... - Brian Manton
Wide. A site of devastation - A small city in the aftermath of the Hulk. The National Guard head the emergency relief.
CAP: We knew the world would not be the same.
Thunderbolt Ross standing by a makeshift hospital tent. His back to us, he looks out over the smouldering city.
CAP: A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent.
Doc Samson’s laboratory. Ross and Doc Samson having a heated argument.
CAP: I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty, and, to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says,
Thin wide panel. The Red Hulk’s eyes - full of rage.
CAP: 'Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.'
Wide. Nevada desert flatlands. Ross in the tattered remnants of his uniform, on his knees, exhausted.
CAP: I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.

This would be a perfect opening page for a much deeper story. It makes the reader want to fill in the holes. It made me want those panels connected.
