Warm-Up Sketches – Distraction – MK Stangeland, Jr.

(6 Panels)

Panel 1: DRONE stands in front of a skeleton, an image very similar to that of the PROMPT IMAGE.

Panel 2: DRONE looks around for something. It looks suspicious.

HANK: (Off panel) Did it work?

HENRY (Off panel) Shhh…You’re going to give us away.

Panel 3: DRONE looks down at the skeleton. Words of some kind comes from it in an inhuman language.

DRONE (1): (Inhuman gibberish)

DRONE (2): (More inhuman gibberish)

DRONE (3): (Yet more inhuman gibberish)

HANK (Off panel) What is it doing?

HENRY (Off panel) I said shush!

Panel 4: Reveal of HANK and HENRY – two soldiers in futuristic sci-fi gear - hiding on the other side of a ridge near the DRONE, which can still be seen in the background looking in HANK and HENRY’s general direction. HENRY is holding something up that peeks just above the ridge which allows him to see what’s on the other side.

DRONE: (Continuing inhuman gibberish)

HANK: Excuse me if I’m antsy about the creep.

HENRY: Excuse me if I’m panicking on the inside about you leading it to us.

Panel 5: The DRONE walks off. HENRY is noticeably relieved.

HENRY: *whew*

HANK: That mean it’s gone?

Panel 6: HENRY stays close to the ground as he begins to make an escape from the ridge. HANK looks about to follow.

HENRY (1): Shutup, ya idiot.

HENRY (2): We got to get this back to base ASAP.

HANK: Hey look! Something we can agree on.
