Doop – Doop For You – MK Stangeland Jr.
Panel 1: An armored truck, flanked from the from the front and rear by unmarked black vans pulls into a nondescript warehouse. In the lead van is BATROC THE LEAPER.
BATROC (1): Muah ha!
BATROC (2): Success!
Panel 2: BATROC and his armed henchmen load out, with BATROC heading for the back of the armored truck.
BATROC: A successful heist, and not un signe of any heroic interference!
Panel 3: BATROC opens the truck, but is taken aback by what’s inside.
BATROC: *LE GASP!*
Panel 4: BATROC holds up a DOOP squeaky toy. It turns out the truck is full of similar toys, rather than the valuable goods that BATROC thought he had stolen.
BATROC: I spoke too soon!
Panel 5: DOOP is in front of the REAL armored truck, shaking the hand of a security guard over a job well done. He wears a security hat, but mostly just for kicks.
BATROC: It looks as though we have been…Dooped.
A wonderful script, MK. Love that you dug up Batroc for this (particularly the "le gasp" bit), and am even happier with it all being a set up for that sweet, sweet pun. Well done.ReplyDelete
