PAGE 3


PANEL 1

The Applimax building is shown.


DOCTOR WILLIAMS (not shown and word box)

I DO HOPE THAT THIS SUMMONING IS SOMETHING IMPORTANT ENOUGH TO TAKE ME AWAY FROM MY WORK.


PANEL 2

Doctor Williams is in Mister Adams’ other office with the silver sphere with spikes and next to his desk. Mister Adams is standing on the other side of the desk and Miss Carson is next to him. Mister Adams carries the file that he had Sam retrieves for him that has information on a certain alchemist.


DOCTOR WILLIAMS (chilling)

I MEAN YOU ALWAYS SEEM TO TAKE GREAT JOY ON REMINDING ME TO ALWAYS KEEP THE PROJECTS ON SCHEDULE AND THIS IS PRETTY MUCH THROWING A WRENCH TO THE WORKS.


PANEL 3

Mister Adams’ hand is shown sliding the file on the desk to Doctor Williams’ direction.


PANEL 4

Doctor Williams opens the file and takes a look at it with a facile expression that says that he doesn’t realize what he’s about to read.


PANEL 5

Same as panel 4, but his facial expression changes as he realizes that what he’s reading is something big.


DOCTOR WILLIAMS (a little spooked)

OH’ MY…. THIS IS DEFIANTLY SOMETHING BIG.


PANEL 6

Another view of Mister Adams and Miss Carson, as well as Doctor Williams who is still looking at the file.


MISTER ADAMS (charming and serious)

BIG?.... MORE LIKE ENORMOUS SINCE THIS CONSPIRACY HAS BEEN GOING ON AMONG THE ALCHEMISTS FOR PERHAPS CENTURIES AND WHAT WAS THE REAL REASON BEHIND THE CREATION OF DEPARTMENT S.N. IS ACTUALLY SOMETHING ELSE THEN WHAT WE WERE TOLD.


MISTER ADAMS (charming and serious)

THE WEREWOLVES, VAMPIRES, AND GOD KNOWS WHAT THOSE QUACKS MAY HAVE CREATED IN THEIR DELUSION OF GODHOOD, HAVE BEEN USING US TO CLEAN UP THEIR MESSES AND KEEP THEIR IMAGE SQUEAKY CLEAN WHILE THEY SIT UP THERE PRETENDING TO BE ABOVE JUSTICE.


DOCTOR WILLIAMS (a little spooked)

AND I TAKE IT THAT YOU’RE PLANNING SOMETHING BIG.


MISTER ADAMS (charming and serious)

I’M PLANNING SOMETHING “ENORMOUS”.


PAGE 4


PANEL 1

Mister Adams has moved and in the background are Miss Carson and Doctor Williams who haven’t moved, but are looking at Mister Adams.


MISTER ADAMS (charming and serious)

THIS WAR, THESE CURSES, ARE WHAT THE ALCHEMISTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR, ESPECIALLY ONE WHO MAY PERHAPS BE MUCH OLDER THEN HE LOOKS AND I SUSPECT I KNOW WHO HE IS AND HOW MUCH MORE DANGEROUS HE IS TO THE REST.


DOCTOR WILLIAMS (a little concern for himself)

AND WHY SHOULD I ALLOW MYSELF TO BE INVOLVED? I MEAN MY ENVIRONMENT IS A STERILE PLACE CALLED A LAB INSTEAD OF BEING THE MIGHTY WARRIORS THAT LOVE TO GET THEIR HANDS DIRTY THAT THE SILVER KNIGHTS ARE.


MISTER ADAMS (charming and serious)

OUT OF RISK OF INFLATING YOUR ALREADY ENORMOUS EGO EVEN FURTHER, YOU HAPPEN TO BE ONE OF THE ROOTS OF DEPARTMENT S.N. BECAUSE OF THE TRUST GIVEN TO YOU BY ALLOWING YOU TO HAVE CERTAIN CODES THAT ALLOW YOU ACCESS TO CERTAIN SYSTEMS.


DOCTOR WILLIAMS (a little concern for himself)

THE SAME CAN BE SAID FOR YOU AND MISS CARSON.


PANEL 2

Mister Adams’ turns his head to look at Doctor Williams and Miss Carson is next to Doctor Williams who she looks at.


MISS CARSON (serious)

THIS ISN’T ABOUT FINDING SOMEONE WHO CAN ACCESS THE BUILDING’S SECURITY SYSTEM AND INFORMATION DATABASE, IT’S ABOUT FORTIFYING A DEFENSE TO USE WHEN WE DECIDE TO ACT WHICH WILL BE INSIDE THE BUILDING THAT THE ALCHEMISTS OWN WHICH MAKES THEM THE HOME TEAM YOU COULD SAY.


MISS CARSON (serious)

THE ALCHEMISTS HAVE TURNED DEPARTMENT S.N. AND THIS BUILDING INTO THEIR PERSONAL FORTRESS WHICH GIVES THEM THE HIGHEST POSSIBILITY OF HAVING AN ADVANTAGE OVER US ON ALMOST EVERYTHING.


PANEL 3

Mister Adams walks back towards the other two.


MISTER ADAMS (charming and serious)

AND “ALMOST” IS THE CHINK IN THE ARMOR THAT WE WANT TO EXPLOIT IF WE EVER WANT TO FREE THE WORLD OF THE ALCHEMISTS’ GRIP, BECAUSE ONCE WE DO CLEAN UP THEIR MESS, WHO’S TO SAY THAT THEY WON’T DO IT AGAIN?


MISTER ADAMS (charming and serious)

OH’ I’M SURE IT WOULD BE DIFFERENT TO WEREWOLVES AND VAMPIRES THE SECOND TIME AROUND, BUT BELIEVE ME AS A PERSON WHO HAS MET THEM FACE TO FACE SO MANY TIMES, NOT ONE OF THEM FEELS GUILTY OR RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DAMAGE AND LOST LIVES THAT THEY CAUSED, NOT ONE BIT, AND THAT IS WHY THEY MUST BE REMOVED FROM POWER BEFORE THAT DAY COMES.


MISTER ADAMS (charming and serious)

SO THE QUESTION IS, DOCTOR, WILL YOU JOIN US IN OUR LITTLE HOSTILE TAKEOVER?


PANEL 4

Mister Adams and Miss Carson is in the background and is looking at Doctor Williams who back head and shoulders is shown.


PANEL 5

Same as panel 4, but Mister Adams has his head turned to the right and Doctor Williams also has his head turned to the right as he smiles and has his hands up next to him.


MISTER ADAMS (charming, serious, and a little annoyed)

SIGN” VERY WELL…. AFTER THE DEED IS DONE, YOU CAN DO ANY PROJECT YOU WANT TO DO WITHOUT WORRYING ABOUT INTERRUPTIONS FROM OTHER PROJECTS THAT WE WOULD LIKE YOU TO DO AND YOU’LL HAVE THE POWER TO FIRE ANY ASSISTANT THAT YOU DON’T LIKE EVEN THOUGH YOU MAY END UP WITH NO ASSISTANTS BECAUSE OF YOUR LACK OF TOLERANCE FOR OTHER PEOPLE.


DOCTOR WILLIAMS (pleased and amused)

THEN YOU HAVE ME, MY GOOD SIR AND EMPLOYER.


PANEL 6

Doctor Williams’s back is shown in the background as he walks towards the door while whistling a happy song. Mister Adams and Miss Carson’s head and shoulders are shown in front as they look each other.


MISTER ADAMS (charming and serious)

WELL, I GUESS IT’S NO SURPRISE THAT HIS LOYALTY WOULD BE EXPENSIVE.


MISS CARSON (serious)

INDEED.


PAGE 5


PANEL 1

Another place, an abandoned warehouse at a dock near the river is shown.


VAMPIRE #1 (not shown)

WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE, FEATHER?


PANEL 2

Two vampires are shown near the entrance of the place that is like blocking the way for Feather.


FEATHER (chilling)

WELL, I HAPPEN TO BE A VAMPIRE AND YOUR LITTLE CRUSADE HAS BEEN SPREADING THE WORD THAT THEY’RE LOOKING FOR VAMPIRES, SO HERE I AM.


FEATHER (chilling)

SO WHY DO YOU FLUNKIES HAVE ANY PROBLEM WITH THAT?


VAMPIRE #1 (annoyed and suspicious)

BECAUSE WE KNOW YOU, FEATHER, WE KNOW THAT YOU’RE AN OUTSIDER WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR FELLOW BLOODSUCKERS AND YOU USUALLY DON’T CARE ABOUT THINGS THAT MATTERS WITH THE REST.


VAMPIRE #2 (annoyed and suspicious)

SO YOU CAN UNDERSTAND WHY WE CAN’T FIGURE OUT WHY YOU WOULD WANT TO BE PART OF THIS, SINCE YOU WOULD FOOLISHLY THINK THIS WAS STUPID AND WOULD WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH IT.


FEATHER (thought balloon and chilling)

WELL, DUH! THIS IS LIKE A SUICIDE MISSION FOR FANATICAL LOSERS WHO DESPERATELY WANT SOME KIND OF GRAND PURPOSE IN THEIR EMPTY LIVES!


FEATHER (thought balloon and chilling)

I’M HERE FOR A MUCH SANER REASON…. WELL…. IT’S SANER THEN THEIRS.


PANEL 3

Feather’s back is shown as the two vampire guards notice another vampire that comes out of the building. This new vampire looks like a body builder.


BIG VAMPIRE (tough and bossy)

WHAT DO YOU MAGGOTS THINK YOU’RE DOING?


BIG VAMPIRE (tough and bossy)

SHE’S OBVIOUSLY A VAMPIRE WHO HAS SEEN THE LIGHT AND WE NEED AS MANY RECRUITS AS WE CAN GET IF WE’RE GOING TO SHOW THE HUMANS THAT THEY BELONG TO US…. BLOOD AND ALL…. JUST LIKE OUR GREAT LEADER NOS HAS FORETOLD IN HIS PROPHECIES.


FEATHER (thought balloon and confused)

PROPHECIES? WHAT PROPHECIES? ARE THESE GUYS STARTING TO MAKE THAT NUT JOB INTO SOME HOLY MAN OR SOMETHING?


PANEL 4

Feather and the big vampire are now inside and the big vampire is leading the way.


BIG VAMPIRE (tough)

THE OTHER FAITHFUL ARE OVER HERE.


FEATHER (chilling)

LEAD THE WAY. BIG GUY.


FEATHER (thought balloon and chilling)

MAN, I KNEW THE GUY WAS SUCKERING A LOT OF VAMPIRES WITH FANCY PROMISES FOR A BETTER LIFE, BUT I WOULD NEVER HAVE GUESSED THAT SOME OF THEM WOULD BEGIN TO SEE THIS AS A RELIGION.


FEATHER (thought balloon and chilling)

THIS PRETTY MUCH SHOWS HOW MUCH POWER HE’S GAINING OVER THE VAMPIRE COMMUNITY.


PANEL 5

The big vampire opens a door for Feather.


BIG VAMPIRE (tough)

BEHOLD….


PAGE 6


PANEL 1

A large group of vampires are shown in the background and Feather’s back is shown up close.


BIG VAMPIRE (tough)

FOR YOU ARE ABOUT TOO MEET THE OTHERS WHO HAVE ALSO SEEN THE LIGHT.


FEATHER (thought balloon and surprised)

DAMN! NOW THIS DEFINITELY SHOWS HOW MUCH POWER THAT LUNATIC IS GETTING OUT OF THIS CON JOB!


PANEL 2

The big vampire leaves thru the door and starts to close it. Feather is looking at the direction where the other vampires are. She has one eye brow up.


BIG VAMPIRE (tough)

I’LL LEAVE YOU WITH THE OTHERS.


FEATHER (thought balloon and a little spooked)

SEEN THE LIGHT, HUH?


PANEL 3

Some vampires are shown talking to each other.


FEATHER (not shown and thought balloon)

THE PROBLEM WITH LIGHT IS THAT WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT TOO DIRECTLY YOU BEGIN TO BECOME BLIND BY IT OR AT LEAST SEE SPOTS.


PANEL 4

Other vampires in the gathering are shown.


FEATHER (not shown and thought balloon)

BUT THE FACT IS THAT IT PREVENTS YOU FROM SEEING WHAT’S REALLY GOING ON, ON WHAT THE LEADER REALLY WANTS OUT OF THIS, AND WHAT THE FOLLOWERS WILL GET AFTERWARDS WHICH WILL PROBABLY BE THEIR DEATHS BASED ON ONE MAN’S SELFISH DESIRES.


PANEL 5

The back of Feather’s head is shown, while in the background are the vampires.


FEATHER (thought balloon and concern)

THIS ISN’T GOOD, THE NUMBERS HERE ARE TOO GREAT, AND THAT MIGHT GET IN THE WAY OF WHY I REALLY JOINED THIS FANATICAL CLUB IF THINGS GO SO OUT OF CONTROL THAT IT WILL END UP DRAGGING ME IN FURTHER THEN I WANT TO BE.


PANEL 6

A vampire guy who acts like he’s part of a cult is now next to Feather who looks a little uncomfortable being near the guy.


VAMPIRE GUY (groovy)

WELCOME, SISTER.


PAGE 7


PANEL 1

Somewhere Else in the city, a man wearing a black trench coat and hat which conceals his identity is crossing the street and looking around as if checking to see if anyone is following him.


PANEL 2

Near that Place, Nos’ shadow is shown on the wall of a building. His foot steps are heard.


NOS (not shown and singing)

START SPREADING THE NEWS, I’M LEAVING TODAY. I WANT TO BE PART OF IT – NEW YORK, NEW YORK. THESE VAGABOND SHOES, ARE LONGING TO STRAY. RIGHT THROUGH THE VERY HEART OF IT – NEW YORK, NEW YORK.

PANEL 3

A close look at the other guy who pulls down his hat, but his grinding teeth show that he’s angry at Nos’, who’s coming to him from behind, attitude.


STRANGER (annoyed)

I CARE VERY LITTLE ON YOUR ATTEMPTS OF SICK HUMOR WHICH NO DOUBT MAKES YOU SUSPICIOUS TO PRYING EYES AND THAT WILL JUST PERHAPS MAKE OUR GOALS THAT MUCH HARDER TO ACHIEVE.


NOS (crazy and amused)

JUST HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN THIS CITY, PAL?


NOS (crazy and amused)

THE ONLY WAY SOMEONE IS GOING TO LOOK SUSPICIOUS HERE IS BY NOT LOOKING SUSPICIOUS.


NOS (crazy and amused)

WE’RE PRACTICALLY INVISIBLE HERE.


PANEL 4

Nos and the stranger are now next to each other, but aren’t looking at each other. The stranger’s back is facing Nos.


STRANGER (disgusted, but holding it in)

LET’S TRY TO GET THIS OVER WITH AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE, BECAUSE I FIND IT HORRID TO DO DEALINGS WITH UNHOLY FILTH LIKE YOU WHICH IS ALMOST LIKE DOING IT WITH THE DEVIL HIMSELF.


NOS (crazy and amused)

BUT IT’S FILTH THAT YOU WANT CLEANSED WHICH IS WHY WE, AN ODD COUPLE YOU COULD SAY, ARE HAVING THIS MEETING SO WE CAN EACH GET WHAT WE WANT OUT OF THIS.


STRANGER (disgusted, but is holding it in)

RECOGNITION, A BELIEF FROM OTHERS THAT YOU’RE SOMEONE ELSE, THAT WHO YOU REALLY ARE NEVER EXISTED IN THE PAST AND LIKE A WORK OF FICTION YOU CAN BE REWRITTEN AS SOMEONE ELSE THAT’S TRULY IS FICTION FROM AN OLD SILENT FILM?


STRANGER (disgusted, but holding it in)

I ASSURE YOU THAT MY PURPOSE IN LIFE IS MORE REALISTIC AND NOBLE THEN WHAT YOU’RE AFTER.


NOS (crazy and amused)

IF THAT’S WHAT YOU WANT TO BELIEVE, THEN I HOPE YOU’LL AT LEAST ENJOY THAT LITTLE FANTASY.


PANEL 5

A closer look at the angry stranger as he slightly turns his head to Nos’ direction.


STRANGER (angry)

YOU DARE?!


NOS (not shown)

PLEASE, WE DIDN’T COME TOGETHER AS ALLIES, BUT ENEMIES WHO DECIDED TO WORK TOGETHER, AND ONCE THIS IS OVER, ONE OF US WILL LATER END UP DEAD BECAUSE OF THE OTHER.


NOS (not shown)

WE’RE MERELY POSTPONING THE INEVITABLE TO CLEAR OUT SOME UNDESIRABLES BECAUSE RIGHT NOW WE HAVE THE CHANCE TO DO SO.


PAGE 8


PANEL 1

Nos is shown in front, while the side of the stranger is shown on his right and behind him.


NOS (crazy and amused)

SO HOW GOES THE PLAN? WILL WE BE ABLE TO START THE FUN REAL SOON?


STRANGER (annoyed)

A CLEAR PATH TO THE BUILDING WILL BE PROVIDED FOR YOU AS LONG AS YOUR TIMING IS CORRECT, SINCE IT INVOLVES TAKING DOWN THE SECURITY SYSTEMS, AND I ASSURE YOU, THEY HAVE VERY GOOD MAINTENANCE TEAM BECAUSE THEY MUST IN THE LINE OF WORK THAT DEPARTMENT S.N. IS IN.


NOS (crazy and amused)

OH, WE’LL BE THERE ON TIME, IN FACT; I GOT SO MANY DIMWITTED FANATICAL FOLLOWERS, THAT THEY’LL BE WILLING TO SACRIFICE THEMSELVES JUST SO THAT I CAN GET IN THROUGH THE FANCY FRONT DOORS.


STRANGER (annoyed)

THAT…. WOULD BE UNWISE IF YOU PLAN TO HAVE SOME LEFT WHEN IT COMES TO FIGHTING THE SILVER KNIGHTS WHICH YOU WOULD SURELY BE AWARE ARE WELL TRAINED WHEN IT COMES TO KILLING “THINGS” LIKE YOU.


NOS (crazy and amused)

I KNOW, I KNOW.


PANEL 2

The stranger straightens his hat as he is about to leave.


STRANGER (annoyed)

REGRETTABLY, WE’LL HAVE TO MEET ONE MORE TIME TO MAKE SURE THAT NOTHING GOES WRONG WITH THE FINAL PHASE OF THE PLAN, BUT YOU ARE RIGHT ABOUT ONE THING, WE ARE ENEMIES, HATED ENEMIES, AND THE ONLY REASON I’M DOING THIS WITH A MONSTER LIKE YOU IS BECAUSE IT’S GOD’S WILL THAT I DO SO.


NOS (crazy and amused)

TO CLEANSE THE EARTH OF WHAT YOU CONSIDER CORRUPTED BECAUSE YOU’RE GOD’S INSTRUMENT? THAT YOU HAVE A CLEAR VIEW OF WHAT GOD’S PLAN IS BECAUSE YOU WORSHIP HIM TIRELESSLY AND CAN NEVER STRAY FROM THE PATH?


STRANGER (annoyed)

I DO AS MY LORD BIDS ME TO DO.


NOS (crazy and amused)

AND YOU KNOW, THERE’S AN OLD SAYING THAT THIS DISCUSSION HAS REMINDED ME OF WHICH IS SOMETHING SIMILAR, BUT DIFFERENT, TO WHAT YOU JUST SAID.


PANEL 3

A very close look at Nos’ fanged smile.


NOS (crazy, amused, and smile only shown)

THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT.”


PANEL 4

The stranger angrily walks away while keeping his hat down to conceal his face. What expression that’s revealed shows that the stranger wants to so badly kill Nos. In the background, Nos knows what the stranger is feeling after that remark and lefts his head up with his eyes closed to make a mad man laugh that’s loud.


PANEL 5

Same as panel 4, but the stranger is gone.


SOME GUY (not shown, angry, and loud)

HEY! SHUT THE HELL UP OR I’M GOING TO CALL THE COPS AND HAVE THEM LOCK YOU UP WITH THE REST OF THE LOONIES!


PANEL 6

A close look at the left side of the smiling Nos as he turns his eyes towards the stranger’s direction. Nos is looking really creepy as if he’s up to something.


PAGE 9


PANEL 1

Another part of the city, Edward is still running and there are less people around. He looks exhausted.


PANEL 2

A closer look at the exhausted Edward who has his head down and a hand on a wall to hold him up.


EDWARD (exhausted and worried)

IT’S BEST THIS WAY…. THE FURTHER SHE’S AWAY FROM ME, THE SAFER SHE’LL BE.


PANEL 3

The teeth and eyes of the savage Edward werewolf is shown, while the rest is covered with shadow.


EDWARD (not shown and word box)

I’M A MONSTER, A KILLER THAT SHOWS NO MERCY, NO REMORSE, EVEN IF IT’S HER.


PANEL 4

Same as panel 2, but Edward’s head is a little up.


EDWARD (thought balloon, exhausted and worried)

BUT SHE NOW KNOWS THAT I’M ALIVE AND HERE IN THIS CITY, WHICH MEANS SHE’LL SEARCH FOR ME AND EVEN PERHAPS HAVE THE POLICE BE INVOLVED.


EDWARD (thought balloon, exhausted and worried)

SHOULD I TELL MISTER ADAMS ABOUT THIS? I MEAN WHAT WILL HE DO TO COVER THIS UP? WHAT WILL HE DO TO CINDY?


PANEL 5

Hands that look like Cindy’s are slowly reaching out from behind and look like they’re about to wrap around the unaware Edward’s abs.


EDWARD (partly shown, thought balloon, and worried)

I’M NO DOUBT GOING TO GET IN BIG TROUBLE FOR TALKING TO THAT VAMPIRE AND TELLING HER THINGS THAT I PROBABLY SHOULDN’T HAVE. THERE’S ALSO THE FACT THAT I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT ADAMS, DEPARTMENT S.N., AND THE ALCHEMISTS.


EDWARD (partly shown, thought balloon, and worried)

LIKE WHY IS THIS ALL HAPPENING, THE WEREWOLVES, THE VAMPIRES, WHY DID THE ALCHEMISTS DO ALL THIS, AND WHY CAN’T THEY REVERSE IT?


EDWARD (partly shown, thought balloon, and worried)

FOR ALL I KNOW, THEY ARE JUST AS BAD AS THE VAMPIRES THAT THEY MAKE US HUNT DOWN WHEN WE’RE TRANSFORMED AND BY TELLING THEM ABOUT CINDY, ABOUT WHAT SHE ALREADY KNOWS, THEY MAY DECIDED TO END HER LIFE SIMPLY TO KEEP HER QUIET AND THERE’S THE FACT THAT THEY MAY STILL FIND OUT ABOUT HER EVEN IF I DIDN’T TELL THEM…. THEY DO SEEM TO HAVE THE EXPERTISE OF FINDING OUT ABOUT THESE THINGS.


PANEL 6

A close look at Edward’s glasses wearing eyes that are field with shock.


PAGE 10


PANEL 1

Another part of the city, Sam is walking among some other people and an angry Sandy is following her.


SANDY (thought balloon and angry)

BLASPHEMER!


PANEL 2

The front of the angry and walking Sandy is shown.


PANEL 3

Same as panel 2, but Sandy now looks unsure of herself.


PANEL 4

(PAST SCENE) Sandy’s trainer, Bob, is shown with uniform, but no helmet.


BOB (concern and serious)

LISTEN, SANDY, I KNOW YOU WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO REMEMBER THIS, SINCE IT HAPPENED WHEN YOU WERE A WEREWOLF, BUT YOU ACTED LIKE SOMETHING WAS SERIOUSLY BOTHERING YOU ON THE LAST MISSION, AS IF YOU WANTED TO SERIOUSLY KILL THE VAMPIRES TO HIDE FROM SOME PAIN YOU’RE FEELING AND AS YOUR TRAINER I LIKE TO KNOW WHAT IT IS.


SANDY (not shown)

I ASSURE YOU THAT I AM QUITE FINE AND HAVE NO NEED FOR YOUR ASSISTANTS IN MY WELL BEING.


BOB (concern and serious)

I KNOW YOU, AS A HUMAN AND A WOLF, AND EVEN THOUGH THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO MAY SEEM GREAT, THE FERAL PART IS STILL YOU IN A SMALL WAY AND IT WAS ENRAGED ABOUT SOMETHING.


PANEL5

(PAST SCENE) The Sandy werewolf’s open mouth and teeth are shown as she begins her savage attack! A growl is heard! This is from HME #2, page 8, panel 5.


BOB (not shown and word box)

LIKE IT OR NOT, AND YOU HAVE SHOWN US THAT YOU DON’T, THAT CREATURE IS YOU WITHOUT THE RESTRAINTS THAT ALLOW YOU TO HIDE YOUR TRUE FEELINGS.


BOB (not shown and word box)

YOU COULD SAY THAT THE BEAST IS MORE HONEST THEN THE HUMAN WHEN IT COMES TO THINGS LIKE THIS.


PANEL 6

Somewhat the same as panel 1, but now Sandy looks unsure of herself.


BOB (not shown and word box)

BECAUSE IT DOESN’T HAVE THINGS LIKE PRIDE OR GLORY TO GET IN IT’S WAY.


PAGE 11


PANEL1

Another part of the city, a bar is shown.


PANEL 2

Ralph and James are shown inside the bar having a beer.


PANEL 3

The “focus” starts to go from those two to Detective Harrison and Officer Rick who are off duty and sitting at the bar a few seats away. Officer Rick looks a little droopy and Detective Harrison seems to be reading an opened file. They both have a beer.


PANEL 4

A front view of Detective Harrison and Officer Rick.


DETECTIVE HARRISON (focused and chilling)

LET’S SEE IF WE CAN AT LEAST PUT THIS MESS INTO SOME KIND OF ORDER THAT WILL MAKE SENSE.


DETECTIVE HARRISON (focused and chilling)

FIRST, WE HAD THAT SLAUGHTERING OF A GANG IN THEIR OWN TURF WHICH THE PEOPLE IN AUTOPSY ARE STILL PUZZLED WITH BECAUSE OF THE CONDITIONS OF THE CORPSES, IF YOU CAN CALL A BUNCH OF PIECES CORPSES.


PANEL 5

Another view of the two.


DETECTIVE HARRISON (focused and chilling)

SECOND, THERE’S THAT SUBWAY INCIDENT WHERE ONE OF THE TWO GIRLS WAS RUN OVER BY A TRAIN, WHILE THE OTHER MANAGED TO REACH TWO POLICE OFFICERS, BUT SADLY IT ENDED FOR THOSE THREE THE SAME WAY AS THE GANG MEMBERS.


DETECTIVE HARRISON (focused and chilling)

THIRD, THERE’S THAT CRAZY NIGHT AT THAT BAR WHERE IT SEEMS TWO CRAZED ANIMALS WERE FIGHTING IN AND MANAGED TO GET AWAY THROUGH THE WALL OF THE REST ROOM WHICH WAS OBVIOUSLY DONE BY SOMETHING POWERFUL.


OFFICER RICK (a little drunk)

YOU STILL THINK THAT THE BAR KEEPER WAS HOLDING SOMETHING BACK?


DETECTIVE HARRISON (focused and chilling)

DAMN RIGHT I DO. THAT GUY HAD A FRONT SEAT VIEW OF THE ACTION WHICH MEANS HE HAD TO SEE SOMETHING, EVEN IF IT WAS A LITTLE GLIMPSE.


OFFICER RICK (a little drunk)

PAY OFF?



DETECTIVE HARRISON (focused and chilling)

PAY OFF.


PANEL 6

The right sides of Officer Rick and Detective Harrison is shown. In the background some other customers are having a drink as well.


DETECTIVE HARRISON (focused and chilling)

NOW, WHERE ARE WE?.... AH’ YES, FOURTH, THE CONVENIENCE STORE CASE, WHERE THE LADY WHO CALLED IT IN SAID THAT THE SUSPECT LOOKED LIKE A CREATURE OF THE NIGHT, THAT HE HAD HIS HEAD SHAVEN AND WORE BLACK WHILE SHE COULD HAVE SWORN THAT HE HAD FANGS.


DETECTIVE HARRISON (focused and chilling)

THIS WAS A VERY CLOSE VIEW OF THE GUY BECAUSE IT WAS THE PSYCHO HIMSELF WHO PROMPT HER TO CALL THE POLICE.


OFFICER RICK (a little drunk)

IF THAT LADY WASN’T THE RELIGIOUS TYPE, THEN SHE PROBABLY IS NOW AFTER THAT CLOSE ENCOUNTER WITH DEATH.


PAGE 12


PANEL 1

An upper view of Harrison and Rick.


DETECTIVE HARRISON (focused and chilling)

BACK TO THE POINT IN HAND, WHAT THIS GUY DID, THE DAMAGE AND DEATHS, WERE LIKE INHUMAN AS IF THE GUY WAS SUPERNATURAL OR SOMETHING AND THERE’S THE OTHER HOMICIDES THAT WERE FOUND AROUND THE CITY, WHICH WEREN’T AS SPECTACULAR AS THE CASES I JUST MENTIONED, BUT WERE JUST AS UNUSUAL BECAUSE THE BODIES WERE PRACTICALLY DRAINED OF BLOOD.


OFFICER RICK (a little drunk and curious)

ARE YOU SAYING THAT WE MAY BE DEALING WITH MONSTERS?


DETECTIVE HARRISON (focused and chilling)

AND I’M NOT TALKING ABOUT THE PSYCHOLOGICAL ONES LIKE SERIAL KILLERS AND OTHER KINDS OF SICK BASTARDS THAT WE NORMALLY HAVE TO DEAL WITH.


PANEL 2

A close view of the left side of Detective Harrison.


DETECTIVE HARRISON (focused and chilling)

BUT IF THERE REALLY ARE REAL MONSTERS OUT THERE, THEN COULD THERE BE MORE THEN ONE TYPE BASED ON THE DIFFERENCE OF THE ODD HAPPENINGS OF SOME OF THE CASES I HAVE IN THIS FOLDER?


PANEL 3

A close look at the front of Officer Rick.


OFFICER RICK (a little drunk)

THE BLOOD THING SOUNDS LIKE A VAMPIRE’S DOING, BUT WHAT COULD BE THE OTHER?


DETECTIVE HARRISON (not shown)

AT THAT BAR IT SOUNDED LIKE WILD DOGS WERE FIGHTING IN THERE AND THEY WEREN’T THE KIND OF DOGS YOU WOULD SEE PEOPLE WALKING IN THE PARK, THAT’S FOR SURE, AND THERE WAS THAT HOWLING THAT SOUNDED LIKE A WOLF’S.


OFFICER RICK (a little drunk)

ARE YOU THINKING OF A WEREWOLF?


DETECTIVE HARRISON (not shown)

YEAH, THAT SOUNDS RIGHT.


PANEL 4

Another view of Detective Harrison and Officer Rick. The bar tender is nearby and wiping the counter with a rag.


DETECTIVE HARRISON (focused and chilling)

AND THERE’S THAT MISTER ADAMS AND APPLIMAX. I KNOW THERE’S JUST RUMORS ROAMING AROUND THAT PLACE, BUT WAY THINGS ARE GOING AROUND HERE, SOME OF THOSE RUMORS MAY PERHAPS BE BASED ON FACT.


OFFICER RICK (a little drunk)

I STILL DON’T GET IT. HOW COULD A COMPANY THAT SELLS HOUSEHOLD APPLIANCES BE IN THE MIDDLE OF ALL THIS WHERE MONSTERS ARE ROAMING THE CITY?


DETECTIVE HARRISON (focused and chilling)

THE LAST THING THEY WOULD WANT IS PEOPLE KNOWING WHAT THEY’RE REALLY DOING, SO WHAT THEY DO IS MAKE THEMSELVES SEEM LIKE THEY’RE SOMETHING ELSE, AN OUTSIDE IMAGE, YOU COULD SAY, THAT DOESN’T SEEM TO FIT WITH WHAT THEY’RE PROBABLY DOING IN THE INSIDE.


OFFICER RICK (a little drunk)

LIKE APPLIANCES AND MONSTERS.


DETECTIVE HARRISON (focused and chilling)

EXACTLY.


PANEL 5

A somewhat closer look at Detective Harrison and Officer Rick. Rick is looking at Harrison.


DETECTIVE HARRISON (chilling)

SO WHAT DO YOU THINK, KID, AM I ONTO SOMETHING?


OFFICER RICK (a little drunk)

WITH ALL DO RESPECT, SIR, AND I DO RESPECT YOU….


PANEL 6

Same as panel 5.


OFFICER RICK (a little drunk)

BUT I THINK YOU’RE EVEN DRUNKER THEN I AM.


DETECTIVE HARRISON (chilling)

YEAH…. YOU’RE PROBABLY RIGHT.


PAGE 13


PANEL 1

Ralph and James have just left the bar.


RALPH (a little drunk)

WOW, I’M FEELING PRETTY WASTED HERE.


JAMES (a little serious)

YOU DID HAVE A BIT TOO MUCH TO DRINK.


RALPH (a little drunk)

I KNOW, I KNOW.


PANEL 2

The backs of James and Ralph are shown with Ralph ahead of the other. James is looking behind him to see if someone is following them and looks a little spooked. Ralph notices this.


RALPH (a little drunk)

YOU STILL AFRAID THAT THEY MAY COME AFTER US WHEN WE’RE NOT ALL FUZZY AND FURRY?


JAMES (a little spooked)

CAN’T HELP IT…. IF THE BIG GUYS ARE SPOOKED ABOUT WHAT’S GOING ON, THEN I AM TOO SINCE THEY HARDLY TELL US ANYTHING.


RALPH (a little drunk)

THAT’S BECAUSE IT’S THE WEREWOLVES THAT WORK FOR THEM, WHILE US HUMANS ARE JUST ROAMING AROUND THERE WAITING FOR THE NEXT FULL MOON.


JAMES (a little spooked)

SAD, BUT TRUE, AND IT PRETTY MUCH MAKES OUR PART IN ALL THIS PRETTY SAD IN ITSELF.


RALPH (a little drunk)

THAT’S PARTLY THE REASON WHY I DRINK A BIT TOO MUCH.


RALPH (a little drunk)

THE OTHER REASON IS THAT I’M A DRUNK.


PANEL 3

An upper distant view of the two.


JAMES (trying to relax)

I’M PROBABLY GETTING MYSELF WORRIED FOR NOTHING.


PANEL 4

On top of a building, a vampire seems to be watching the two from below.


JAMES (not shown)

BESIDES, US BEING STRANGERS THAT BLEND IN WITH THE CROWD OF A CITY THIS BIG PRETTY MUCH MAKES IT HARDER FOR THEM TO FIND OUT WHO OR WHAT WE REALLY ARE.


RALPH (not shown)

THAT’S THE SPIRIT. “BURP!”


PAGE 14


PANEL 1

Edward’s abs and Cindy’s arms that are around them are shown.


PANEL 2

(PAST SCENE) The savage Edward werewolf is shown in the junk yard from Howl to the Moon #6


PANEL 3

A close look at Edward’s glasses wearing eyes that are filled with shock.


CINDY (not shown)

YOU ONCE TOLD ME SOMETHING, WHEN WE WERE AT MY PARENTS HOUSE AFTER WE FOUND OUT WHAT YOU BECAME, SOMETHING ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE HUMAN AND THE WOLF.


PANEL 4

(PAST SCENE) The savage Edward werewolf is shown fighting the knives carrying mad-crazed Joe from HTTM #6.


PANEL 5

Edward’s back is partly shown and Cindy has her head lying on it while she tries to process the fact that her friend is still alive.


CINDY (calm)

THAT INTELLIGENCE AND SELF-RESTRAINT ARE REPLACED WITH INSTINCT AND PRIMAL FREEDOM.


PAGE 15


PANEL 1

(PAST SCENE) A seemly calm Edward werewolf walks towards a shocked Cindy in the junk yard from HTTM #6


CINDY (word box)

BUT ANSWER ME THIS….


PANEL 2

(PAST SCENE) The shocked Edward werewolf gets shot from HTTM #6.


CINDY (not shown and word box)

WHAT HAPPENS TO THE SOUL?


PANEL 3

Same as panel 2, but the shocked werewolf’s eyes become the main focus.


CINDY (not shown and word box)

DOES THAT CHANGE…. OR GET REPLACED WITH SOMETHING ELSE?


PANEL 4

An upper view of Edward, as well as Cindy’s arms that are still around him. Edward still has his hands on the wall of the building and he looks like he’s about to cry after all the horror he’s been thru. Tear drops are already on the lens of his glasses.


PANEL 5

A somewhat distant look at the two. As if Edward’s legs lost strength, he falls to his knees with Cindy following.

PANEL 1

Back to the Applimax building in the meeting room of the alchemists, Alchemist #8 is there and seems to be alone. He seems to be using the quietness to help him think.


PANEL 2

Alchemist #8 is a bit startled when he hears someone calling him.


ALCHEMIST #1 (not shown)

DOING SOME DEEP THINKING ON THE SITUATION AT HAND?


PANEL 3

It is revealed to be Alchemist #1 who has his hand on one of the chairs. Alchemist #8 is partly shown.


ALCHEMIST #8 (calm, but a little nervous)

YES, WELL, IT WOULD APPEAR THAT “THINKING” HAS BEEN THE ONLY THING THAT HASN’T BEEN DONE TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM, SO I TOOK THE LIBERTY TO DO IT MYSELF IN HOPES TO FIND THE SOLUTION.


ALCHEMIST #1 (suspicious, arrogant, and serious)

DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE ANCIENT WISDOM OF THE ALCHEMISTS, ALCHEMIST #8, WHICH IS SOMETHING YOU SHOULD BE FULLY AWARE OF SINCE YOU ARE ONE OF US.


PANEL 4

Alchemist #1 and #8 are facing each other and holding their ground in their “conversation”.


ALCHEMIST #8 (serious and slightly in defense)

HAVING KNOWLEDGE ON A SCIENCE WHICH IT’S FORMULAS ARE SO ADVANCE THAT IT LOOKS A LOT LIKE MAGIC DOESN’T MAKE ONE WISER THEN OTHERS, IT MERRILY MEANS THAT YOU CAN DO THINGS THAT OTHERS CAN’T WHICH ARE BASED ON CHEMICAL REACTIONS.


ALCHEMIST #8 (serious and slightly in defense)

WISDOM IS TO KNOW WHEN AND HOW TO USE THAT POWER. TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE DANGERS THAT COME WITH IT WHEN USED IMPROPERLY WHICH IS PERHAPS WHAT STARTED THIS WAR.


ALCHEMIST #1 (suspicious, arrogant, and serious)

ARE YOU SAYING THAT THE ALCHEMISTS ARE TO BLAME FOR THIS? THAT OUR KIND WHO HAS ADVANCED BEYOND THE REST OF THE WORLD SHOULD TAKE RESPONSIBILITY?


PANEL 5

Part of the back of Alchemist #1’s head is shown, while Alchemist #8 is shown in the background.


ALCHEMIST #8 (serious, concern, and firm)

WHEN YOU SAY “OUR KIND”, ONE WOULD THINK THAT YOU SEE ALCHEMISTS AS A SPECIES OF THEIR OWN RIGHT, ONE THAT IS BEYOND HUMANS IN STANDARDS OF EVOLUTION, AND ONE WOULD WONDER WHERE THE “WISDOM” IN THAT IS.


ALCHEMIST #1 (partly shown, arrogant, and serious)

WE ARE WHAT WE ARE AND DISCOVERING THE ART OF TRANSMUTATIONS OF ELEMENTS FROM ONE THING TO ANOTHER AND THE CREATING OF FUSING TWO SPECIES INTO A HYBRID, A CHIMERA OF ADVANCED GENETICS, SHOWS THAT WE ARE DIFFERENT TO THE REST OF HUMANITY, SO YES, PERHAPS WE ARE A SPECIES OF OUR OWN BECAUSE OF OUR SUPERIOR KNOWLEDGE.

PANEL 1

Alchemist #1 is about to leave, while Alchemist #8 watches him.

ALCHEMIST #8 (firm and serious)

WEREWOLVES AND VAMPIRES ARE CREATIONS OF ALCHEMY AND ONLY AN ALCHEMIST CAN PERFORM ALCHEMY.


ALCHEMIST #8 (firm and serious)

A FACT THAT I’M AFRAID YOUR WORDS CAN’T CHANGE AS IF THEY WERE THE ELEMENTS THEMSELVES.

PANEL 3

Another view of the two.


EDWARD (calm and emotionally tired)

I REALLY DON’T UNDERSTAND THE DETAILS MYSELF, BUT THIS DOCTOR WILLIAMS WAS ABLE TO REPLICATE A PROCESS CREATED BY SOMEONE FROM A HUNDRED YEARS AGO WHICH ALLOWED THE RESURRECTION OF SOMEONE OF MY PHYSIOLOGY, BUT IT WAS SUCH A DIFFICULT EXPERIMENT THAT I WAS JUST DARN LUCKY THAT IT WORKED.


EDWARD (calm and emotionally tired)

I ONCE ASKED DOCTOR WILLIAMS TO EXPLAIN IT TO ME, SINCE I’VE ALWAYS BEEN A SCIENCE NERD, BUT HIS SOCIAL SKILLS WERE SO AWFUL THAT I COULDN’T TOLERATE HIM LONG ENOUGH TO LET HIM FINISH AND TOLD HIM I HAD TO BE SOMEWHERE WHILE ACTING POLITELY.


PANEL 4

Some walking bystanders are beginning to show as the two are still sitting on the bench.


CINDY (calm and emotionally tired)

SO YOU’RE WITH OTHER PEOPLE NOW?


EDWARD (calm and emotionally tired)

YEAH, SOME OF THEM ARE LIKE ME, INFECTED WITH THIS CONDITION, WHILE THE OTHERS USE US AS LIVING WEAPONS TO USE FOR MISSIONS AND HAVE US TRAINED BY SOLDIERS WITH SILVER ARMOR.


EDWARD (calm and emotionally tired)

I SOMETIMES WONDER IF THEY SEE US AS HUMAN BEINGS OR JUST ANIMALS THAT NEED TO BE PUT IN A LEASH.


PANEL 5

Cindy is starting to look concern after hearing what Edward just said and looks at him.


CINDY (concern and a little confused)

WEAPONS? WHAT A MINUTE…. JUST WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE, AND IF THEY ARE USING YOU AS A WEAPON, THEN JUST WHO IS IT THAT YOU ARE BEING USED TO FIGHT?


EDWARD (calm and emotionally tired)

CINDY, PLEASE, THE LESS YOU KNOW, THE BETTER OFF YOU ARE. THESE PEOPLE ARE LIKE UNOFFICIALLY EXISTING AND PERHAPS WILLING TO QUIET THOSE WHO KNOWS MORE THEN THEY SHOULD IN A FASHION THAT’S GRUESOME AND PERMANENT.


EDWARD (calm and emotionally tired)

YOUR LIFE MAY ALREADY BE IN DANGER FOR DISCOVERING THAT I’M ALIVE.


CINDY (concern and a little confused)

BUT, EDWARD….


PANEL 6

Edward and Cindy are looking at each other.


EDWARD (serious and a little sad)

YOU HAVE NO IDEA ON WHAT’S REALLY GOING ON IN THIS CITY, NO MORE THEN THESE BYSTANDERS HERE EVEN IF YOU ARE AWARE THAT WEREWOLVES ARE REAL, BUT IT’S BIGGER AND MORE DANGEROUS COMPARE TO WHAT HAPPEN IN OUR HOME TOWN BECAUSE OF ME DURING A FULL MOON.


CINDY (concern)

YOU’RE RIGHT, I DON’T UNDERSTAND ALL THIS, LIKE FINDING YOU ALIVE AND SAYING THAT THERE’S A WAR OF SOME KIND GOING ON, BUT I DON’T CARE.

PANEL 4

Edward and Cindy are looking at each other.


CINDY (worried)

EDWARD.


EDWARD (serious)

THINGS…. CANT…. GO BACK TO WHAT THEY WERE.


EDWARD (serious)

EVEN IF I’M ONLY A BEAST DURING THE NIGHTS OF THE FULL MOON, THAT DOESN’T CHANGE THE FACT THAT I’M DANGEROUS AMONG PEOPLE, EVEN YOU, AND THAT IS WHY I MUST BE CONTAINED AND KEPT AWAY FROM FRIENDS AND FAMILY.


CINDY (worried)

NO.


EDWARD (serious)

YES, EVEN THOUGH I WISH OTHERWISE, BUT THIS HAS TO BE OR SOMETHING TERRIBLE WILL HAPPEN AND WE BOTH KNOW IT.


PANEL 5

(PAST SCENE) Joe and his gang from “Howl to the Moon” series are displayed.


EDWARD (not shown and word box)

YOU WERE THERE, YOU SAW IT WITH YOUR OWN EYES AND KNOW THAT I KILLED THEM, THE ONES WHO PICKED ON ME AT SCHOOL, SIMPLY BECAUSE I HATED THEM FOR THE TORMENT THEY PUT ME THROUGH WHICH SHOWS THAT THE MONSTER INSIDE ME HAS A HAIR TRIGGER.


PANEL 6

A closer look at Cindy and Edward’s heads.


EDWARD (serious)

YOU HAVE TO FORGET YOU EVER SAW ME, BECAUSE IT’S THE ONLY WAY TO KEEP YOU OUT OF DANGER, TO KEEP YOU ALIVE, EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO PRETEND THAT I’M STILL DEAD.

MISTER ADAMS (serious, charming, and annoyed)

THAT WILL BE ALL, MISTER MARSHEN.


PANEL 4

Edward is now gone and Miss Carson walks towards the thinking Mister Adams.


MISS CARSON (calm)

SO WHAT WILL BE HIS PUNISHMENT?


MISTER ADAMS (serious, charming, and annoyed

POSTPONE…. ALTHOUGH I’M VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH EDWARD FOR TALKING TO A VAMPIRE AND TELLING HER THINGS THAT HE SHOULD HAVE NOT HAVE SAID, IT WAS A TRADE OF INFORMATION WHERE WE NOW KNOW THAT THE ENEMY PLANS TO BRING THE WAR TO OUR HOME TURF AND THAT THERE REALLY IS A TRAITOR AMONG US.


MISS CARSON (calm)

BUT WE STILL DON’T KNOW WHO THAT TRAITOR IS WHICH GIVES THEM STILL A SOMEWHAT ADVANTAGE.


MISTER ADAMS (serious, charming, and annoyed)

THAT IS TRUE, BUT FOR NOW I’LL LET EDWARD BE SINCE DISCIPLINING HIM WOULD BRING UNWANTED QUESTIONS IN A VERY DELICATE SITUATION WHERE WE HAVE ENEMIES ON BOTH SIDES WHICH IS PUTTING US IN THE OPEN AND MIDDLE OF IT ALL.


MISS CARSON (calm)

WE’RE STUCK BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE.


MISTER ADAMS (serious, charming, and annoyed)

THAT WE ARE I’M AFRAID.

PANEL 4

The “stranger” that met with Nos is entering thru a door which has a sign that says “APPLIMAX EMPLOYEES ONLY”. His face is still concealed.
