Final Doorman Cover 2

Here’s what the story is about:

Henry Clay Waters is The Doorman of Earth and hasn’t had an interstellar visitor in decades until… his last day on the job when an extraterrestrial assassin darkens his doorstep. Saved by the neurotic alien Detective Flower, the two must team up to solve the galaxy’s biggest mystery or get killed trying!

Page 1, Panel 1:Goodbye Gloop

PAGE 1

Panel 1: Establishing shot. It’s night time. We find ourselves in a clear patch of land surrounded by haunted looking woods. The moon is full, and the stars are bright. Three small figures, armed with shovels, are silhouetted by the pale cosmic light. They are digging a hole, and totally concentrated on their task at hand.

Caption: Somewhere in the woods…

Voice 1 Caption: We’ll never be able to dig a hole big enough.

Voice 2 Caption: Shuddup, will ya.

Voice 3 Caption: Just keep digging, the both of ya’s.

Panel 2: Small panel. One shovel head buries itself sharply in the ground.

Voice 1 Caption: Think anyone will notice he’s gone?

SFX: SHINK!

Panel 3: Small panel. All we see are two white-gloved hands gripped tightly on the oak stock of the shovel, and tossing back the dirt into the air carelessly.  

Voice 2 Caption: Whadya’ mean? Like come looking?

Panel 4: Small panel. Repeat panel 2. Except instead of one shovel head digging into the ground, we see all three dig in at unison.

SFX: SHINK!

SFX: SHINK!

SFX: SHINK!

Voice 1 Caption: Yeah. I mean… He is a dead kid. Ya know?

Panel 5:  Small panel. A hand can be seen. A dead hand. A child’s dead hand. It is distorted from rigor-mortis. Almost claw like now. The hand has been cleaned, but poorly. Underneath the finger nails, and inside the cuticles, is something dark… something brown that stains. The hand itself is splotchy with the same color.

Voice 3 Caption: Ain’t no one comin’ to find this one. Ain’t no one. Boss has got friends in high places. Plus…

Woods at night.  2

Creepy woods!

PAGE 2 & 3

Double Page Splash! Three indifferent Oompa Lumpas look down at the fat-dead body of Augustus Gloop.

His face is crippled permanently with horror. His eyes are wide in a morbid epiphany. It’s as though he fully realized his death before the viscous chocolate flooded his lungs, drowning him in his own vice.

Make sure to cut off his fingers.

He lays on top of a garbage bag, or tarp of some kind. Next to the four figures is the hastily dug shallow grave.

Small mounds of dirt surround the scene.

Only the owls are privy to this secret rendezvous. A secret that they will share only with the Oompa Lumpas and the stars above.  

Oompa Lumpa 3/Voice 3: I don’t think anyone is going to miss him.

PAGE 4

Panel 1: The three Oopma Lumpas struggle to heave the body of Augustus into the air. Into the hole. Into his grave. 

Ooompa Lumpas: UGH! 

Panel 2: Augustus’ body lands clumsily with a thud. His body is distorted from the fall. 

SFX: THUD!

Panel 3: Oompa Loompas stand over Gloop’s body, arms akimbo. The moon behind them turns them all into silhouettes. One tosses a handful of flowers onto the body.

Oompa Lumpa 3: He really was a nincompoop.

Panel 4: The flowers lay on Augustus’ chest. They are as still has he is. 

Oompa Lumpa/Voice 1 Caption: A big one at that.

Panel 5: Small panel. One shovel head carves itself in a mound of loose dirt that had previously been dug up.

Oompa Lumpa/Voice 3 Caption: Alright. Let’s get back to it.

Panel 6: Small panel. We see only the shovel. It is cruelly and carelessly tossed in the offpanel hole. Onto the unseen body of Augustus Gloop. 

SFX: SHINK

Oompa Lumpa/Voice 3 Caption: I want to get back before curfew…

Panel 7: Small panel. The loose dirt from the shovel scatters on Augustus’ face. Soon his eternal death scream will be covered by mud and nature. Eventually wiped away by time. And forgotten by memory.

Imagine this. But in a hole. And dead.

Tyrell Cannon’s Bloodpouch

Hi there folks,

So yesterday I dropped this baby on Twitter. But I’ll repost it here in case MY MASSIVE wordpress following missed it. Here is a pin up version of Bloodpouch – One of the characters from my Dark Horse ongoing series, THE PAYBACKS (Sept 16th). It’s a loving homage to Rob Liefield done by the amazingly talented Tyrell Cannon.
