Panel 1 - Exterior. A park at night. The wind whips through black trees, causing leaves to whip across our field of vision. This is a nightmarish, David Fincher-esque, version of a park at night. In the center of the panel, a young woman in a pale blue dress is being attacked by two stereotypical park muggers. Each of the muggers has one of her arms, and they are pulling her in opposite directions.
CAPTION: "This summer..."
Panel 2 - Closer focus on the thugs. They have let the girl go, and she is running away.
THUG 1: What was that noise?
CAPTION: "... Vengeance comes..."
PANEL 3 - The thugs in the foreground, their backs to us, recoil in fear as a grotesque, feral, half-human/half-squirrel female creature leaps down at them from the treetops, claws flashing in the moonlight.
CAPTION: "... From the TREES."
Panel 4 - The panel is black, with a film logo - It is the words "SQUIRREL GIRL" written in a bloody, slashing font, dripping in blood.
Panel 5 - Interior of a Hollywood producer's office. A TV shows the logo, and continues to run through the trailer. Two HOLLYWOOD SUITS look expectantly at Squirrel Girl, who sits facing them in an office chair, Tippy-Toe on her shoulder.
SQUIRREL GIRL: Pass.
TV: "... Directed by Zack Snyder..."
TIPPY-TOE: HARD pass.
a) "This is a nightmarish, David Fincher-esque, version of a park at night" is a great sentence and would make for an excellent panel.ReplyDelete
b) That final panel is solid, both for Squirrel Girl and Tippy-Toe's reactions, but also the Zack Snyder joke.
c) Well played.
I concur. The Zack Snyder dig puts the cherry on top.ReplyDelete
