External, day. A DOCTOR with a clipboard stands by the side of a track. BOB, seen only from the abdomen and up, stands on the track ready to go. BOB is wearing goggles.
1. DOCTOR: We can start when you're ready. Just do your best.
2. BOB: Let's do this.
Seen from above. BOB runs along the track and has already made considerable distance from his starting point near the DOCTOR.
3. DOCTOR: GO!!!
Split panel. Top split: BOB races across the panel in a blur. Bottom split: A speedometer in the DOCTOR's hand reads "98 MPH".
BOB leans against a wall, huffing and puffing. The DOCTOR, standing nearby, talks excitedly. BOB can still only be seen from the abdomen and up.
4. DOCTOR: Incredible! You beat all of my wildest expectations!
5. BOB: Yeah… That was… good.
BOB and the DOCTOR shake hands, both very happy. This panel has a full reveal of BOB, with cybernetic prosthetic legs.
6. DOCTOR: Are you willing to do more experiments with the prosthetics?
7. BOB: Hell yes!
I really like the split panel effect--that was cool, but a question I have is the layout of the page. Is Panel 4 supposed to be on the same tier as Panel 3, and five is on the third tier? Has a kind of John Cassaday feel to it.ReplyDelete
