1 - Red Hood stands facing the reader, menacingly wielding a crowbar. He's wearing his full costume, but it's clear he's furious. A ball of rage. He's the focus of the page and the background should either be artfully blurred or not drawn.
RED HOOD (1): You thought you could just forget about me. Have your fun and then throw me away like so much trash.
RED HOOD (2): Maybe you figured I wouldn't remember. Wouldn't discover your part in that sick drama.
RED HOOD (3): But I got the message. And I've come a long distance to return it.
2 - Similar staging, but Red Hood has the crowbar raised above his head, ready to attack. The background and foreground is now present, revealing that he is in a phone store, with a cornucopia of different types of phones all about him - cell, landline, rotary, novelty, and so forth.
LETTERING NOTE: Maybe have Red Hood's word balloon dripping black to show how mad he is.
RED HOOD: I hope you're ready to accept the charges.
3 - Outside. Arsenal and Starfire stand a safe distance back from the building - a Phone Hut, as it were. Evidence of the violence within is everywhere: broken windows, phones flung out of the building, maybe some smashing sfx, and so forth. Arsenal asks a question to Starfire; she can do nothing in response but shrug.
ARSENAL: So is this why he never answers my calls?
If it's not too much (it obviously is), you could even have a final piece of dialogue in that third panel coming from Red Hood inside the building:
RED HOOD (within): CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?!
Poor Jason. :( You plucked at my heart strings.ReplyDelete
It took me a moment to get the joke. But once I did I realized the hilarious bit of black humor you've got here.ReplyDelete
Perfect! I need see the final panel in art format.ReplyDelete
Humor's tough, and you did a nice job mixing a few different catch-phrases, including the title, for the over-all effect.ReplyDelete
Oh my god, this is hilarious.ReplyDelete
Thanks, friends. I was a little nervous that this might not land, but I'm glad to see that it hit the mark.ReplyDelete
