PANEL 1

Inside Mister Adams’ office, a fancy TV built into the wall is showing a news cast of the convenience store incident. Bodies are being taken out of the store. A news woman is there. The word “LIVE” is on the right bottom side of the screen.


NEWS WOMAN (from the TV and serious)

AUTHORITIES ARE STILL BAFFLED ON HOW SOMETHING LIKE THIS COULD HAVE POSSIBLY HAPPEN. HOW ONE CRAZY LUNATIC COULD HAVE DONE ALL THIS ALONE AND WALK AWAY IS BEYOND ANYONE’S COMPREHENSION.


PANEL 2

Mister Adams’ sitting at his desk and is looking at the direction of the TV and has his tie loosen. He looks focused and displease in the room which is lighted by the TV.


NEWS WOMAN (not shown and from TV)

WE RECEIVED WORD THAT SOME OFFICERS AT THE SCENE WERE SHOT TO DEATH, WHILE OTHERS WHO ARRIVED LATER WERE TORN APART. THE INVESTIGATION STILL GOES ON AS THEY TRY TO FIGURE OUT ON WHAT COULD HAVE DONE THAT KIND OF DAMAGE TO A PERSON’S BODY.

PANEL 3

Alice and Cindy are at their apartment and sitting on the coach. They watching the same news report and it seem to be having an affect on Cindy.


NEWS WOMAN (not shown and from TV)

AS SOME OF YOU MAY RECALL, AN INCIDENT SIMILAR TO THIS WHEN IT CAME TO A BIZARRE HAPPENING A MONTH AGO AT A BAR WHERE IT SEEMED TWO WILD ANIMALS WERE FIGHTING INSIDE.


ALICE (chilling)

WOW, WE WERE LIKE THERE WHEN IT HAPPENED.


PANEL 4

Past scene from New York Wilderness #6, as if looking thru Cindy’s eyes, the front of the getting trashed bar is shown. The howling noise that spooked her in that time is heard.

WHETHER OR NOT THESE TWO EVENTS ARE LINKED HAS NOT YET BEEN ESTABLISHED.

PANEL 1

Mister Adams has turned his office chair so he can look out of the window that was behind him. It looks like he thinking in his dark room.


PANEL 2

Same as panel 1.


MISTER ADAMS (focused)

WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’RE DOING, NEWCOMER?


MISTER ADAMS (focused)

WHY PUT ON SUCH A DISPLAY THAT DRAWS ATTENTION WHICH WOULD PUT YOU IN GRAVE DANGER? WHAT WOULD MAKE YOU GO AGAINST THAT INSTINCT THAT TELLS YOU TO SURVIVE AMONG ALL ELSE?


PANEL 3

The left side of Mister Adams is shown.


MISTER ADAMS (focused)

I WONDER, COULD BE THAT YOU’RE DRUNK WITH YOUR OWN POWER? THAT YOU THINK YOU’RE INVINCIBLE AND THAT NO ONE CAN HURT YOU? THAT YOU’RE ONE OF THOSE FOOLISH VAMPIRES THAT DON’T KNOW THEIR OWN LIMITATIONS?


MISTER ADAMS (focused)

OR IT’S SOMETHING ELSE THAT’S GIVING YOU THE CONFIDENCE TO DO SOMETHING THIS RADICAL? THAT YOU HAVE A GOAL THAT’S HAVING AN EFFECT ON THE REST OF THE VAMPIRE POPULATION, MAKING THEM BEHAVE DIFFERENTLY WHICH MAY INDICATE A POSSIBLE ORGANIZATION?


PANEL 4

A close look at the front of Mister Adams’ face.


MISTER ADAMS (focused)

THESE QUESTIONS ALSO ADDS ONE MORE TO THE LIST.


PAGE 3


PANEL 1

Nos, with bullets holes in his clothing as well as his victims’ blood on him, is about to give a speech at the abandon theatre.


NOS (not shown and word box)

JUST HOW CLOSE YOU ARE TO ACHIEVING THIS GOAL YOU MAY HAVE?


FEATHER (not shown)

SO WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH THIS GUY? WHY DOES HE LOOK LIKE THAT VAMPIRE IN THAT OLD SILENT MOVIE?


STAN (not shown)

THE WAY I HEARD IT, THE GUY THOUGHT THE MOVIE WAS A HOLY SIGN OR SOMETHING.


PAGE 4


PANEL 1

The left side of Nos is shown.


NOS (a little crazy, but serious)

TELL ME; IS THERE ANYONE IN THIS ROOM FEELING SICK OF BEING TREATED LIKE RODENTS WHEN YOUR VERY EXISTENCE DEMANDS TO BE TREATED LIKE ROYALTY BECAUSE OF YOUR OBVIOUS SUPERIORITY?


NOS (a little crazy, but serious)

ANYONE?.... HELLO?


PANEL 2

The back of Nos is shown as a lot of vampires in front of him raise their hands.


NOS (a little crazy, but serious)

AH, THERE WE GO, I CAN NOW SEE THAT WE’RE BEGINNING TO UNDERSTAND ONE ANOTHER, TO GET ON THE RIGHT TRACK ON WHAT WE SHOULD BE BUT AREN’T.


NOS (a little crazy, but serious)

BUT OF COURSE YOU COMING HERE HAVE SHOWN THAT YOU FINE GENTLEMEN AND LADIES ALREADY HAD AN IDEA OF THIS AND THAT CERTAIN ACTIONS MUST BE TAKEN TO TAKE OUR RIGHTFUL PLACE ABOVE THE CATTLE CALLED HUMANITY.


PANEL 3

Feather and Stan are shown listening, but are being unimpressed.


NOS (not shown)

PATHETIC BEINGS WHO REFUSES TO REALIZE THAT THEIR TRUE PLACE, THEIR DESTINY AS A RACE, IS TO BE FOOD AND NOTHING MORE.


FEATHER (unimpressed)

TELL ME ABOUT HIM.


STAN (chilling)

WHAT?


FEATHER (unimpressed)

TELL ME WHAT YOU KNOW OF THE GUY.


STAN (chilling)

WHY WOULD I KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS LUNATIC?


FEATHER (unimpressed)

BECAUSE YOU’RE LIKE 300 YEARS OLD AND PROBABLY KNOW A LOT THAT WENT ON WITH THE WORLD.


PANEL 4

Stan is looking at Feather who’s looking at Nos’ direction.


NOS (not shown)

IT IS TIME FOR US, THEIR MASTERS, TO SHOW THEM THIS BECAUSE IT’S RIGHT AND NATURAL.


STAN (chilling)

DOESN’T MATTER HOW OLD YOU’RE ARE, THE WORLD WILL ALWAYS BE A VERY BIG PLACE, ESPECIALLY SINCE PEOPLE CAN NOW WALK ON THE MOON AND SEND MESSAGES THROUGH SATELLITES MAKING THE MESSENGER ON THE HORSE A JOKE.


STAN (chilling)

BEFORE WE KNOW IT, PEOPLE WILL BE LIVING IN SPACE AND GOING AT WARP SPEED.


FEATHER (chilling)

STAN.


PANEL 5

Same as panel 4, but Stan looks away and signs.


NOS (not shown)

WE ARE THE DOMINANT SPECIES.


STAN (slightly depressed)

FINE, BUT I CAN ONLY GIVE YOU WHAT I HEARD AND I CAN’T PROMISE THAT IT’S ACCURATE.


PAGE 5


PANEL 1

Past scene 1922, Nos is shown as his human self with hair and looks depressed. It’s 1922.

PANEL 2

Past scene 1922, Nos, as a human, is shown working at a dirty factory and seems to really hate it., but does his job.


STAN (not shown and word box)

YOU’RE NOT TRYING TO FOOL AROUND WITH MY HEAD, ARE YOU?

PANEL 2

Past scene 1922, Nos, as a human, walks on a sidewalk in the city and is smiling. It’s daytime and there are other people there.


STAN (not shown and word box)

WELL, AFTERWARDS, HE WENT OFF BELIEVING THAT HE WAS ACTUALLY GOING TO BECOME THAT CREATURE ON THE SILVER SCREEN AS IF THINGS LIKE THAT REALLY HAPPEN, WHICH DOES, BUT EVEN WE DIDN’T BELIEVE STUFF LIKE THAT UNTIL IT BIT US.


PANEL 3

The present, Nos, as a vampire, still gives his speech.


NOS (a little crazy and serious)

STAN (not shown)

THEN IT HAPPENED, WHICH PROBABLY MAKES THIS SICK BASTARD PROOF THAT DUMB LUCK ACTUALLY EXISTS.


PANEL 4

Past scene 1922, Nos, as a human, gets attacked by a vampire at night! His face shows great pain and shock!

PAGE 8

Same as panel 2, but the door is open and a shocked landlord is shown!


LANDLORD (low tone and shocked)

DOWN?


PANEL 5

(COLOR BLIND SCENE) A closer look at the terrified landlord as the Nos werebat, thru his eyes, attacks at animal-like speed! A growl is heard and the landlord yells in terror!


PANEL 6

Past scene 1922, the unaware attendants looking out their doors are nervous about why the landlord made those sounds!

ANYONE WHO HAD THE ROTTEN LUCK OF LIVING IN THE SAME BUILDING AS THAT PSYCHO….


PAGE 9


PANEL 1

Past scene 1922, a part, like the front doors, of the building that Nos stayed in is shown! People walking by are shocked to hear screams of terror from inside!

SADLY DIDN’T GET TO LIVE LONG ENOUGH TO SEE TOMORROW.

AND SO HERE HE IS NOW, TRYING TO BE SOMEONE IMPORTANT, SOMEONE WHO’S NAME, WHATEVER IT IS, WILL BE WRITTEN ON PIECES OF PAPER THAT WILL CARRY HISTORY FOR PEOPLE IN THE FUTURE TO READ.


FEATHER (not shown)

WHAT A WANNABE LOSER.


STAN (not shown)

THAT HE IS, BUT A VERY DANGEROUS ONE AS YOU CAN NOW SEE.


STAN (not shown)

A LOT OF THEM HERE IS FALLING FOR IT. THEY WANT WHAT HE OFFERS, BUT CANNOT GIVE, EXCEPT AN END TO THEIR MISERABLE LIVES WHICH IRONICALLY IS THE REASON THAT THEY’RE BEING FOOLED IN THE FIRST PLACE.


PANEL 4

From an above view, Nos and the crowd of riled up vampires are shown. The vampires are yelling in excitement!


NOS (loud, crazy, and excited)

YEAH!.... YEAH!.... THIS IS WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT!


NOS (loud, crazy, excited, and direct)

THIS…. PLACE…. SUCKS!!!


FEATHER (not shown)

RAT GUY SAID THAT THIS WOULD BE A BAD IDEA, A “VERY” BAD IDEA.


STAN (not shown)

THE BIGGEST REASON THAT RAT GUY HAS LIVED THIS LONG IS BECAUSE HE’S SMART, EVEN THOUGH PEOPLE WOULD THINK OTHERWISE BY LOOKING AT HIM, BUT WHY HE’S THE BEST AT GATHER INFORMATION THAT’S DIFFICULT TO FIND IS BECAUSE HE’S VERY PERCEPTIVE, HE CAN FIGURE OUT PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY ON HOW THEY HIDE THAT INFORMATION.


PANEL 5

Another view of Nos.


NOS (crazy and excited)

WE SHOULD BE HAVING MEETINGS LIKE THESE IN THOSE FANCY MEETING ROOMS IN THOSE CORPORATE BUILDINGS!


NOS (crazy and excited)

EVERYTHING THAT THE HUMANS BUILT SHOULD BE LIKE MONUMENTS, TRIBUTES, TO US AND OUR GREATNESS, WHICH MEANS THEIR HOUSES, BUILDINGS, LUXURIES, CARS, ESPECIALLY THE LIMOS, AND EVERYTHING ELSE SHOULD BELONG TO US AS WELL AS THEIR BLOOD AS A SACRIFICE IN THEIR PART!


FEATHER (not shown)

NOW HE’S REALLY LOSING IT.


STAN (not shown)

BUT YOU HAVE TO ADMIT HE’S REALLY CREATIVE IN HIS DELUSIONS.


PAGE 10


PANEL 1

Nos is the main focus as he spreads his arm to look dramatic.


NOS (a little crazy, grinning, and serious)

BUT SADLY THERE IS SOMETHING THAT IS BLOCKING THIS GLORIOUS PATH.

The riled up vampire crowd is shown. They look really eager to take down this enemy.


VAMPIRE #4 (savage and loud)

BLOOD!!! I WANT THEIR BLOOD!!!


PANEL 5

NOS (a little crazy, grinning, and serious)

PLEASE, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN…. PLEASE…. THERE ARE STILL SOME PREPARATIONS THAT MUST BE MADE MEANING IF WE ACT NOW, WE’LL SIMPLY BE HELPING THEM TAKE MORE OF US DOWN.


NOS (a little crazy, grinning, and serious)

HAVE A LITTLE PATIENCE AND BE READY TO ACT WHEN THE TIME COMES WHEN THE DOORS THAT LEADS TO OUR GLORIOUS FUTURE OPENS WITH THE BLOOD OF THESE BEASTS.


PANEL 6

A closer look at Nos who suddenly becomes really excited!


NOS (crazy, excited, and loud)

AND THEN WE SHALL BE FREE TO TAKE OVER THE HUMAN WORLD!!!


PAGE 12


PANEL 1

Nos is at the center of attention as he brings up his arms and head to soak in the applauses from the now vampire followers! The vampires are applauding in an insane and savage kind of way!

PANEL 3

A werebat there is raising it’s head and giving out a savage screech!

MY…. DESTINY.


PANEL 5

PAGE 13


PANEL 1

Edward is in his living quarters watching TV. He looks depressed and the only source of light is the TV. He looks depressed and is sitting on his bed.


HOST (not shown and from TV)

I ALSO HEARD THAT THERE ARE MENTAL CONDITIONS THAT SEEM BASED ON FOLKLORE.


DOCTOR MADISON (not shown and from TV)

I BELIEVE WHAT YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT IS LYCANTHROPY.


PANEL 2

Doctor Madison is shown on the TV.


DOCTOR MADISON (from the TV)

a psychosis in which the patient has delusions of being a wild animal, usually a wolf, which is rare in a INDUSTRIALIZED country, but when it does happen to a person they start to behave like an animal with claws because their internal fears exceed their coping mechanisms which may externalize them via projection and constitute a serious threat to others.


PANEL 3

The host of the show is shown on the TV.


HOST (from the TV)

AND THERE’S NO PHYSICAL CHANGES WHAT’S SO EVER?


DOCTOR MADISON (not shown and from TV)

IT’S MERELY SUPERSTITIOUS.


PANEL 4

The left side of the depressed Edward is shown as he watches the program.


DOCTOR MADISON (not shown and from TV)

THE ONLY PERSON WHO SEES HIM OR HERSELF CHANGING FROM ONE SPECIES TO ANOTHER IS THE ONE WHO HAS THE ILLNESS.


DOCTOR MADISON (not shown and from TV)

THE AFFLICTED PERSON’S PHYSIOLOGY SHALL ALWAYS REMAIN THE SAME NO MATTER WHAT BECAUSE IT’S A TYPE OF PARANOID SCHIZOPHRENIA AND NOT A TRUE METAMORPHOSIS.


PANEL 5

On the TV, a picture of the man from the beginning of “Howl to the Moon” #1, the one who was the werewolf who bit Edward, is shown sitting at a table. He looks like he’s about to have a nervous breakdown.


DOCTOR MADISON (not shown and from TV)

YOU KNOW, I’M GLAD YOU ASKED THIS BECAUSE I HAD A PATIENT I WANTED TO SHOW AS WELL AS ASK THE VIEWERS IF THEY HAVE SEEN HIM AND THAT THEY SHOULD IMMEDIATELY REPORT IT TO THE AUTHORITIES BECAUSE OF HOW SERIOUS THIS MAN’S LYCANTHROPY SYNDROME IS.


DOCTOR MADISON (not shown and from TV)

HIS BELIEF THAT HE COULD ACTUALLY TURN INTO A WOLF WAS SO GREAT THAT I FEARED THAT HE WOULD HARM, OR EVEN KILL, INNOCENT BYSTANDERS DURING HIS PREDATOR MOMENTS WHICH MADE ME BELIEVE THAT IT WAS BEST IF I HAD HIM COMMENTED INTO A HIGH SECURITY MENTAL INSTITUTE, BUT SADLY HE DISAPPEARED BEFORE I HAD THE CHANCE TO MAKE THE ATTEMPT.


PAGE 14


PANEL 1

The depressed Edward is lying back on his bed while aiming the remote at the TV.


HOST (not shown and from TV)

WHAT EXACTLY ARE THE SYMPTOMS FOR THIS KIND OF AILMENT?


DOCTOR MADISON (not shown and from TV)

Delusions of werewolf transformation under extreme stress, Preoccupation with religious phenomenology, including feeling victimized by the evil eye, Reference to obsessive need to frequent graveyards and woods, Primitive expression of aggressive and sexual urges in the form of bestiality, Physiological concomitants of acute anxiety.


DOCTOR MADISON (not shown and from TV)

NOW These symptoms CAN OCCUR significantly in the absence of exposure to toxic substances AND THEY’RE NOT LIMITED TO JUST A WOLF. SOME SUBJECTS CAN BELIEVE THAT THEY’RE leopards, lions, elephants, crocodiles, sharks, buffalo, eagles, and EVEN serpents. THE DELUSIONS CAN BE…. (CLICK)


PANEL 2

Edward is now off his bed and puts on his jacket as he walks away. A window is shown.


EDWARD (thought balloon and depressed)

I MIND AS WELL TRY TO ENJOY WHAT’S LEFT OF FREE NIGHT.


PANEL 3

Same as panel 2, but Edward isn’t shown.


EDWARD (not shown and thought balloon)

THOUGH I STILL CAN’T SEE HOW FREE A NIGHT COULD BE WHEN YOU HAVE A CHIP IN YOUR HEAD.

PANEL 5

A closer look at the figure which is beginning to look like Feather.


PANEL 6

Feather is clearly shown and looks like she saw Edward leave his room.


PAGE 15


PANEL 1

Feather walks away.


FEATHER (thought balloon)

LOOKS LIKE A GOOD OPPORTUNITY TO DO SOMETHING DESPERATE, JUST LIKE I SAY I WOULD DO, BUT I’M STILL AFRAID THAT THERE’S A VERY GOOD CHANCE THAT THIS WILL JUST BRING IN MORE PROBLEMS FOR ME THAT WILL GET IN THE WAY OF MY PLANS FOR REVENGE, THOUGH THANKS TO THAT LUNATIC SAVIOR OF THE VAMPIRISM KIND, I HAVE VERY LITTLE TIME TO PLAN THIS PROPERLY.


PANEL 2

Back to Mister Adams who’s walking down the hallway of their base. He’s straightening his tie as if he firmly believes that he needs to look decent when there’s a chance they someone will see him outside his office.


PANEL 3

JAMES (not shown)

WE NEED TO TALK.


PANEL 4

Mister Adams looks behind him and James is in the background.


MISTER ADAMS (charming and serious)

FROM LOOKING AT YOU, I WOULD SAY THAT YOU SAW THAT NEWS REPORT.


JAMES (serious)

I USUALLY PREFER A BOOK THEN THE TELEVISION, BUT YES, I DID SEE IT.


JAMES (serious)

WHAT’S HAPPENING OUT THERE?


PANEL 5

Mister Adams is shown on the right side, while James is shown on the left side.


MISTER ADAMS (charming)

NOTHING AS SERIOUS AS IT WOULD SEEM SINCE IT’S JUST A LITTLE GLITCH THAT WE’LL BE ABLE TO FIX IN NO TIME.


JAMES (serious and a little annoyed)

DON’T PLAY WITH ME, ADAMS, I’M ONLY A NEAR MINDLESS ANIMAL DURING THE FULL MOON, AND SINCE THERE ISN’T ONE TONIGHT, MY FACULTIES ARE WORKING JUST FINE.


PANEL 6

Mister Adams is the main focus.


JAMES (partly shown, serious, and a little annoyed)

I’VE BEEN AROUND HERE LONG ENOUGH TO KNOW THAT THE CONVENIENCE STORE INCIDENT ISN’T SOMETHING THAT NORMALLY HAPPENS AND NOTHING HUMAN COULD HAVE DONE WHAT THAT MANIAC DID.


JAMES (partly shown, serious, and a little annoyed)

AND NOTHING HUMAN IS WHAT THAT GUY IS, AM I RIGHT?


MISTER ADAMS (serious and a little worried)

JAMES….


PAGE 16


PANEL 1

Mister Adams looks away from James because he knows that James is too smart to be misguided.


MISTER ADAMS (a little depressed)

SIGH” YES, IT WAS A VAMPIRE THAT WAS BEHIND IT, BUT WHY I DON’T KNOW, PERHAPS TO GIVES US HUMAN A MESSAGE OF SOME KIND, THOUGH IT’S A NEW PLAYER WHICH WE’RE HAVING TROUBLE TRACKING DOWN.


JAMES (serious and a little annoyed)

BUT I THOUGHT YOU DEPARTMENT S.N. GUYS HAD PEOPLE TO COVER THIS UP LIKE YOU DO WITH OTHER VAMPIRE INCIDENTS, MAKE THEM SEEM THAT THEY WERE NORMAL HOMICIDES, AS WELL AS BEING ABLE TO HUNT THEM DOWN SINCE THEY’RE VAMPIRES ALL THE TIME, WHILE A WEREWOLF IS MOST OF THE TIME HUMAN.


MISTER ADAMS (a little depressed)

UNDER NORMAL CONDITIONS, YES, BUT THIS VAMPIRE IS PLAYING BY DIFFERENT RULES AND CAUSING A RUCKUS WHICH WILL PERHAPS MAKE OTHER VAMPIRES, WHO SO FAR HUNTED IN THE SHADOWS OF THIS CITY TO PROTECT THEMSELVES, TO DO THE SAME.


MISTER ADAMS (a little depressed)

FOR SOME REASON THIS NEW VAMPIRE IS ALWAYS TWO OR THREE STEPS AHEAD OF US AS IF HE HAS INSIDE INFORMATION ON OUR PLANS AND SCHEDULES.


PANEL 2

The back of Mister Adams’ head is shown, while a worried James is in front of him.


JAMES (a little worried)

I DON’T THINK I LIKE THE SOUND OF THAT.


MISTER ADAMS (serious)

NOR SHOULD YOU, BUT IT’S ONE OF THE RISKS WE MUST TAKE WHEN DOING THIS KIND OF BUSINESS WHERE SOMEONE HERE DECIDES TO WORK FOR THE ENEMY AS IF THEY WILL RECEIVE A DESIRABLE FAVOR OR HAVE A CHANCE TO GET OUT OF THIS ALIVE.


MISTER ADAMS (serious)

THE TWO SIDES AREN’T AS BLACK AND WHITE AS YOU WOULD THINK. THE BAD GUYS CAN EASILY BE ON OUR SIDE FOR PURPOSES OF STABBING US IN THE BACK WHEN WE’RE NOT LOOKING.


PANEL 3

Another view of James and Mister Adams.


JAMES (a little worried)

SO WHAT DO YOU GUYS PLAN TO DO ABOUT THIS?


MISTER ADAMS (serious)

WE PLAN ON HOPING WE GET LUCKY BEFORE EVERYTHING HITS THE FAN.


JAMES (a little worried)

I DON’T LIKE THE SOUND OF THAT EVEN MORE THEN THE OTHER THING YOU SAID.


PANEL 4

Somewhere else in the building, Sam is about to go out thru the door to enjoy her free night.


SANDY (not shown)

UM, SAM?


PANEL 5

Sam turns around and sees Sandy looking innocent like.


SAM (chilling and a little annoyed)

PAGE 17


PANEL 1

Sam looks shocked after hearing that, as if it was the impossible that has happened.


PANEL 2

Same as panel 1.


SAM (shocked, in disbelief, and low tone)

I AM LIKE SO TOTALLY FREAKING OUT HERE.


SAM (shocked and in disbelief)

DID YOU JUST ASK ME IF YOU COULD GO WITH ME? YOU, THE ONE WHO ALWAYS ACTED LIKE YOU HATED ME TO A BIBLICAL LEVEL?


PANEL 3

The nervous Sandy is shown.


SANDY (nervous and low tone)

YES.


PANEL 4

Sam looks away and looks like she’s thinking about this.


PANEL 5

Same as panel 5, but now Sam is looking at Sandy’s direction.


SAM (serious and a little annoyed)

ALRIGHT, BUT IF IT ENDS UP LIKE LAST TIME, YOU YELLING AND SCREAMING, THEN I PROMISE I’LL LEAVE YOU IN THE BIG BAD CITY TO FEND FOR YOURSELF, ESPECIALLY SINCE I’M NOT GETTING PAID FOR THIS.


PANEL 6

Sam and Sandy exit from the door.

FEATHER (thought balloon and concern, but serious)

I KEPT MYSELF FROM FEEDING FOR THREE DAYS JUST IN CASE I HAD TO DO SOMETHING AS STUPID AS THIS.


PANEL 2

She takes off more clothing for a certain purpose.


FEATHER (thought balloon and concern, but serious)

I JUST PRAY THAT I DIDN’T MISCALCULATED, BECAUSE ONCE I LET GO, THE CHANGE WILL HAPPEN AND THE PLAN IS THAT THE THIRST WON’T BE GREAT ENOUGH TO MAKE ME LOSE CONTROL AND KILL THE ONE THAT I WANT TO TALK TO.


FEATHER (thought balloon and concern, but serious)

THIS IS FOOLISHLY RISKY, BUT THE FASTEST WAY OF GETTING HIM IN CASE HE’S BEING WATCHED OVER AND I’VE SEEN HOW FORMABLE THOSE “WATCHERS” ARE.


PANEL 3

Feather is now nude and seems to be concentrating.


FEATHER (thought balloon and concern, but serious)

THE WEREBAT IS WHAT WE VAMPIRES BECOME WHEN THE THIRST BECOMES TOO GREAT, TOO OVERWHELMING, WHICH MAKES IT A SERIOUS WITHDRAWAL SYNDROME TO AN ADDICTION.


FEATHER (thought balloon and concern, but serious)

I ONLY GOT A FEW MINUTES TO GET OVER THERE AND COME BACK HERE WITH A PACKET OF BLOOD WAITING OR I’M GOING TO END UP SUCKING HIM DRY AND ANYONE ELSE NEAR BY UNTIL THE CRAVING GOES AWAY.

EDWARD (thought balloon and depressed)

I FEEL LIKE THAT THERE’S NOTHING IN FRONT OF ME, A FUTURE THAT IS, NOTHING AT ALL, JUST A LIFE WHICH ISN’T MUCH OF A LIFE AND ALL IT TOOK WAS COMING HOME LATE SO A WEREWOLF COULD TAKE A BITE OF ME.


EDWARD (thought balloon and depressed)

I WONDER IF THINGS WOULD HAVE BEEN DIFFERENT IF JOE AND HIS GANG NEVER LOCKED ME UP IN THE LOCKER, WHICH WAS WHY I WAS LATE GETTING HOME, IF THAT LITTLE DIFFERENCE WOULD HAVE SUCH AN AFFECT THAT I WOULD HAVE NEVER HAD TO WORRY ABOUT CHANGING WHEN THE FULL MOON CAME?


PANEL 2

(BAT RADAR SCENE) As if looking thru the eyes of the flying Feather werebat, the depressed Edward is shown below and still walking without being aware of what’s coming towards him at flight speed!


EDWARD (thought balloon and depressed)

SIGN” WHAT AM I DOING? THE PAST IS CALLED THE PAST FOR A REASON AND ONCE THAT MOMENT OF LIFE IS DONE IT CAN NEVER BE LIVED OVER AGAIN, SO DOING THE “WHAT IF” BIT WILL GET ME NOTHING BUT MORE REASONS TO BE DEPRESSED.


PANEL 3

Same as panel 2, but with a closer look at Edward because the Feather werebat is quickly getting closer to her target! Edward is still unaware of his predicament!


EDWARD (thought balloon and depressed)

I WISH I COULD THINK OF SOMETHING TO DO TO AT LEAST CHEER MYSELF UP A LITTLE, BUT IT DOESN’T SEEM LIKELY.


PANEL 4

Same as panel 3, but an even closer look at Edward as his “predator” gets even closer!


EDWARD (thought balloon and depressed)

IT’S LIKE I’M IN A PIT THAT I CAN NEVER CLIMB OUT OF.


PANEL 5

Same as panel 4, but a closer look at Edward who now realizes that a werebat is quickly coming towards him and he looks like he’s about to scream in terror!

PANEL 1

In a very dramatic kind of way, the flying savage Feather werebat grabs the terrified Edward with her hind feet! Edward had tried to run away, but things went too quick for him!


PAGE 22


PANEL 1

The savage Feather werebat and Edward, who she’s carrying, are flying away!


PANEL 2

Same as panel 1, but the two are further away!


PANEL 3

Same as panel 2, but the two are even further away!


PANEL 4

Same as panel 3, but the two are “even” further away! Edward is heard screaming in terror which is really loud!
