Eclipso - Infinities - Travis M. Holyfield

Panel 1: An asteroid in deep space. The landscape is a blasted, rocky wasteland. THANOS sits on a magnificent throne. His BLACK ORDER (Black Dwarf, Corvus Glaive, Ebony Maw, Supergiant, Proxima Midnight) wait on one knee before him, their backs to us..

THANOS: What have you brought me today, my Cull Obsidian?

Panel 2: Corvus Glaive reaches forward to place something in Thanos' outstretched hand.

Panel 3: Thanos looks into his opened hand, gazing at the treasure he holds.

THANOS: This. 
THANOS: This is not an Infinity Gem.  

Panel 4: In the foreground Thanos' hand holds up a sliver of a black diamond. Past this we can see that the faces of the Black Order are eclipsed, half normal, half in darkness - the mark of ECLIPSO.

Panel 5: A shadowy, spectral ECLIPSO stands behind Thanos' throne, gazing lovingly at the diamond in the Mad Titan's hand. We see that Thanos' face is now eclipsed. 
ECLIPSO: No, Thanos of Titan. It is not.

ECLIPSO: It is something so much finer.

  1. Jeez, Travis, I wish I would've thought of this first. You execute the idea extremely well, and everything from descriptions to dialogue is tight, tight, tight. Absolutely marvelous (no pun intended).
