Letter 44 – Letter 45 – MK Stangeland Jr.

(5 Panels)

Panel 1: Image of a hand-written letter, being held by an unseen individual.

WRITING (1): If you are reading this, congratulations on your survival.

WRITING (2): I can only hope that this letter finds it way to those that come after, but it is with that same hope that I write this final letter, even as…

Panel 2: An unidentifiable man, clothed in a survival environmental suit, holds the letter and is looking at it. The paper – and several others like it – are held at an awkward angle, suggesting he doesn’t quite know what he’s looking at.

RAJOR: (Off-Panel) Carlin! What are you looking at?

Panel 3: CARLIN shows the papers to RAJOR, a larger man dressed much the same way he is.

CARLIN: I am not sure. Can you read this?

RAJOR (1): It is of the old script.

RAJOR (2): No one reads the old script anymore.

Panel 4: RAJOR discards the papers from CARLIN’s hands.

CARLIN: What if it is important?

RAJOR: Nonsense. There is nothing of importance here.

Panel 5: Long shot, showing the two wandering a post-apocalyptic wasteland that could easily have once been WASHINGTON, DC. Now, however, it’s a barely habitable graveyard of ruins. Nearby is a small caravan of men and women dressed much like CARLIN and RAJOR.

The letter lies on the ground in the foreground.

RAJOR: The only thing of importance anymore is survival.

LETTER (1): Stemphen Blades

LETTER (2): 44th President of the United States of America
