A Sudden Change in Outlook - Title Fight - Grant McLaughlin

1 - Establishing shot of a big, top-card boxing match.  We're talking huge arena, large crowd, flashbulbs going off - all that jazz.  Two boxers, one in red trunks and one in blue, stand facing each other in the ring.  We're far out, but it's still clear that Blue is a much bigger fighter.

CAPTION (RED): Everyone knew it was going to be a bloodbath.

2 - The fighters are touching gloves, but we're focused on Red.  As before, he's noticeably smaller and he looks pretty miserable.

CAPTION (RED): Even me.

3 - We're into the fight.  Blue takes a big haymaker swing; Red barely manages to get out of the way.

CAPTION (RED): But when the fight started.

4 - Blue takes another massive swing.  Red dodges again, manging to evade with more grace this time around.

CAPTION (RED): I couldn't help wondering.

5 - Red lunges forward and lands a punch right in Blue's face.


6 - On Blue, his nose bleeding.  Going cross-eyed to look at it, he looks somewhat ridiculous.  But he also look furious.


7 - On Red.  He wears a look of determination on his face, his gloves up to protect himself / attack again.  I imagine this panel long and thin, crossing the bottom of the page - a cinematic pose.

CAPTION (RED): What if?
