Shade The Changing Man – Everything is Real – Travis M. Holyfield
8 panels. Put together, these panels essentially create a splash page. SHADE stands at the back of an O.R.C. meeting hall. His back is to us, and we are looking past him down the hall. DOCTOR Z.Z. is at the end of the hall, delivering a sermon to a crowd of eager parishioners seated in long wooden pews. The hall itself is unornamented, plain except for some Metan imagery at the podium where Z.Z. stands.
Again, the idea with each panel is that we are scanning down Shade's body, starting with his left shoulder in panel 1 and then continuing right and downwards until we reach his right fist in panel 8. The rest of the panel is taken up with the surrounding layout of the O.R.C. center.
Panel 1: Shade's left shoulder.
DOCTOR Z.Z.: You have come here because you want to know The Truth! You have come here because you know that THEY are keeping The Truth FROM YOU!
Panel 2: Shade's right shoulder.
DOCTOR Z.Z.: You are here because you see over two dozen celebrities, actors, actresses, musicians! You see a United States Congressman, and you know that THEY know The Truth!
Panel 3: Shade's left upper arm.
DOCTOR Z.Z.: The Truth that our beloved founder Wizor died to bring this world!
Panel 4: Shade's right upper arm.
DOCTOR Z.Z.: The Truth that we here at the Occult Research Center protect and cherish, and that we invite you to be a part of!
Panel 5: Shade's left forearm.
DOCTOR Z.Z.: And The Truth, my friends is that IT IS ALL TRUE!
Panel 6: Shade's right forearm.
DOCTOR Z.Z.: Everything you have ever dreamed, everything you have ever believed, is TRUE, and it is REAL, and it is THERE FOR YOU TO TAKE!
Panel 7: Shade's left hand.
DOCTOR Z.Z.: Join the O.R.C., give yourself over to our trust, and we will pull back the secret skin of the multiverse! We will show you Meta and BEYOND!
Panel 8: Shade's right fist now begins to crackle and distort with the strange energies of his M-Vest.
DOCTOR Z.Z.: FOLLOW US! And no one in this world or any other will ever stand in your way again!
