Red Hood – “1-900-720-2666” – Derek Adnams
Page 1 – (6 Panels)
1.1: Red Hood, fully masked, leaning in toward the reader, addressing them. The background for all these panels is an old-school warehouse printing press, the kind comics were run through in the 1980’s.
Red Hood: I want you to see my face.
1.2: Red Hood pulling off his mask, revealing a slightly beaten-up Jason Todd.
Jason Todd: Do you see it? My face? The face you wanted beaten and bruised?
Jason Todd: The face you wanted dead?
1.3: Jason looking away, sad, head tilted down at the Bat-communicator / iPhone thing he’s using in Panel 1.4.
Jason Todd: A face you never wanted to see again?
Jason Todd: My face.
1.4: Jason’s whole face reflected in Bat-communicator / iPhone screen as he dials “1-900-720-2666”. The number being dialed must be clearly seen.
Jason Todd: So I’ll disappear.
1.5: Jason, smiling smugly, pressing the send button on the Bat-communicator / iPhone thing. The printing press background is visible in this panel, setting up the emptiness of Panel 1.6.
Jason Todd: Done.
1.6: Now just the printing press background, spools of uncut comic book pages in the foreground, revealed by Jason Todd’s disappearance.
