PANEL ONE (WIDE)–We’re in a neatly trimmed cemetary and it’s about to storm. There’s a smattering of people, most the New Age sort, others less conspicuous and clearly uneasy. At the center is Jason Pearson. He’s young with exotic features–dark hair, pale eyes, light brown skin, a combination of Middle Eastern and Central European. Besides him is his wife Maria–a very attractive latina who fashions herself to be a young Sophia Vergera, and for good reason. The burial service for Addy has ended and people are leaving. Det. Maxwell approaches.
PANEL TWO–Maria kisses Jason. Maxwell stands at a distance, waiting, flipping a piece of Nicorette into his mouth.
Jason(small): I’ll see you at home.
PANEL THREE–Det. Maxwell is in front of Jason, but Jason’s attention is elsewhere.
Det: M’wife sends her prayers.
Jason: Thank you, Det. Maxwell.
Det: Y’know, I’m sure this is a bad time, but I didn’t fail to notice that your father still hasn’t showed up….
PANEL FOUR–Jason walks past Maxwell as we see the person he’s noticed is the Princess, a tall, angular woman with waifish features who seems to discolor the air around her . Her skin is the tone of reflective ivory. There are a flock of birds (whatever kind you want to draw) taking off in Jason’s path.
Jason: Not now, Detective.
PANEL FIVE–Jason touches the chronal bracelet on his wrist.
