Panel 1: A Private Investigator – DETECTIVE DANIELS – is standing in a busy train station.
TEXT BOX (1): Detective Daniels has a riddle to solve.
TEXT BOX (2): His gut tells him that there is a connection between a new train system and a mysterious increase in deaths among the elderly.
TEXT BOX (3): Deaths that are officially recorded as being of natural causes.
Panel 2: A TRAIN CONDUCTOR beside the train – he looks to be mostly minding his own business but is glancing over his shoulder for just that moment. He should have a minor hint of an aura of death about him, shown in such a way as to make it unclear if it’s actually there or if DANIELS is just imagining it.
TEXT BOX (1): Detective Daniels believes the new conductors are somehow connected.
TEXT BOX (2): Conductors who are touted as having an uncanny ability to ‘make the trains run on time’.
Panel 3: DETECTIVE DANIELS is in his office. He is hard at work examining a stereotypical-style clue wall full of pictures and written clues about the mystery he’s investigating.
TEXT BOX (1): His greatest deductive reasoning failed to piece together any possible explanation.
TEXT BOX (2): Until he began to consider the supernatural.
Panel 4: DETECTIVE DANIELS looks towards a clock that’s posted up on the wall.
TEXT BOX: And realized that perhaps the trains really do run…on time.
