PANEL 1

Night time. Two punk rock fans, a guy and a girl, are going home at night in the city. They look like they had a good time.

PUNK ROCKER GIRL (excited and a little tired)

THEY TOTALLY RULED, MAN!


PANEL 2

The two are now entering the building's front doors where their apartment is. The guy goes in first.


PUNK ROCKER GUY (excited and a little tired)

WHAT WOULD BE EVEN MORE AWESOME IF WE COULD START A BAND AND START ROCKIN IT!


PUNK ROCKER GIRL (excited and a little tired)

YEAH, BUT YOU LIKE NEED TO HAVE TALENT OR SOMETHING TO DO THAT.


PUNK ROCKER GUY (excited and a little tired)

THAT LIKE SO TOTALLY @#$%EN SUCKS!


PANEL 3

The two are now in the building and the right side of them is shown. The door in the near background is shown open and an annoyed man is partly shown who is the landowner.


LANDLORD (annoyed and impatient)

HEY, YOU TWO! YOU'RE TWO WEEKS LATE ON YOUR RENT AND I'M RUNNING OUT OF PATIENTS ON YOU LOSER FREAKS!


PUNK ROCKER GUY (annoyed and a little tired)

YEAH, YEAH, YOU'LL GET THE MONEY REAL SOON, PAL.


LANDLORD (annoyed and impatient)

I BETTER GET IT OR YOU'RE OUT ON THE STREETS, PUNK, OH, AND A WORD OF ADVICE.... IT HELPS TO LOOK NORMAL TO GET A JOB TO PAY YOUR RENT ON TIME!


PUNK ROCKER GUY (annoyed, a little tired, and low tone)

#%@* YOU.


LANDLORD (annoyed and impatient)

WHAT WAS THAT?!


PUNK ROCKER GUY (annoyed and a little tired)

NOTHING.


LANDLORD (annoyed and impatient)

THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT!


PANEL 4

The two have now entered through the door of their apartment which is dark with the only source of light from the outside hallway.


PUNK ROCKER GUY (annoyed and a little tired)

WHAT A TOTAL @#$%HEAD AND HE LIKE RUINED THE GOOD MOOD I WAS IN!


PUNK ROCKER GIRL (annoyed, a little tired, and a little amused)

MAKES YOU WANT TO BURN DOWN THIS PIECE OF CRAP OF A BUILDING WITH HIM IN IT, DOESN'T IT?


PUNK ROCKER GUY (annoyed and a little tired)

YEAH, WATCHING THAT GUY STICK HIS HEAD OUT THROUGH THE OPEN WINDOW AND SCREAMING FOR HELP LIKE A LITTLE GIRL WOULD BE A SATISFYING SIGHT AS HE GOES DOWN WITH THE BUILDING.


PANEL 5

The punk rocker guy is about to turn on the lights, but is shocked, as well as the girl, by the voice heard inside their place.


EDDIE (not shown)

HEY, DON'T TURN ON THE LIGHTS.


PAGE 2


PANEL 1

A part of the two is shown up front as they look in front of them and there is Eddie sitting on their comfy chair as if he owned the place. The place is kind of mess and there are some punks rock posters on the walls.


EDDIE (amused and delusional)

THE DARKNESS BRINGS IN THE RIGHT MOOD FOR THIS.


PAGE 3

PANEL 1

The two are looking at each other!


PUNK ROCKER GIRL (angry and in disbelief)

WHAT THE @#$% IS HE DOING HERE?!


PUNK ROCKER GUY (angry and in disbelief)

HEY! I DIDN'T INVITE HIM HERE!


EDDIE (not shown)

HEY.


PUNK ROCKER GIRL (angry and in disbelief)

THEN WHAT THE @#$% IS HE Does HERE IF HE ISN'T ONE OF YOUR DEADBEAT FRIENDS?!


EDDIE (not shown)

HEY!


PUNK ROCKER GUY (angry and in disbelief)

YOU KNOW THAT THIS FREAK ISN'T ONE OF MY FRIENDS SO WHY DO YOU THINK I INVITED HIM HERE?!


PANEL 2

Same as panel 1 but the two are startled by the yelling!


EDDIE (not shown, angry, and loud)

HEY!


PANEL 3

The sitting Eddie is the main focus and the two shut up.


EDDIE (amused, delusional, and low tone)

JEEZ, PEOPLE WOULD THINK YOU WERE A MARRIED COUPLE WHO WERE READY TO GO TO DIVORCE COURT THE WAY YOU SNAP AT EACH OTHER.


EDDIE (amused and delusional)

AS OF HOW I GOT IN HERE, WELL, IT WOULD BE WISE OF YOU NEXT TIME TO LOCK YOUR WINDOWS, THOUGH IT WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER IF IT WAS THE DOOR SINCE SALLY AND I, AS WELL AS OUR OTHER FRIENDS, HAD A HARD TIME GETTING UP HERE SINCE YOU'RE ON THE THIRD FLOOR.


EDDIE (amused, delusional, and low tone)

OH, AND SALLY LEFT BECAUSE SHE GOT BORED WAITING FOR YOU.


EDDIE (amused and delusional)

WAIT A MINUTE.... “SNICKER”.... DID I JUST SAY “NEXT TIME” AS IF THERE WAS GOING TO BE A NEXT TIME?


PANEL 4

A part of Eddie is shown and he starts to laugh like a crazy guy, while in the background are the punk rock couple who look disturbed by Eddies behavior.


EDDIE (madman laughter and loud)

THAT IS SO HILARIOUS! AS IF YOU TWO WERE GOING TO BE AROUND AT ALL TO EVEN LOCK YOUR WINDOWS!


PUNK ROCKER GUY (spooked and disturbed)

DUDE, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?


PUNK ROCKER GIRL (spooked and disturbed)

YEAH, LIKE WHAT THE HELL DID WE EVER DO TO YOU?


PANEL 5

The left side of Eddies face is shown and the lighting is making him look spooky.


EDDIE (amused, annoyed, and delusional)

LET'S START WITH TWO WEEKS AGO AT THE CLUB WHERE I ASKED YOU FOR A DANCE BUT YOU SAID NO TO ME AND I ENDED UP GETTING BEATEN UP BY YOUR BOYFRIEND HERE AND “PEED” ON BACK IN THE ALLY!


EDDIE (creepy)

I HATE GETTING PEED ON!


PUNK ROCKER GIRL (not shown)

YOU WERE GETTING PUSHY AND WOULDN'T KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF ME!


PUNK ROCKER GUY (not shown)

AND THAT'S WHY I BEAT THE CRAP OUT OF YOU AND RELIEVED HIMSELF ON YOU AS AN ADDED BONUS, YA DISTURBED BASTARD!


EDDIE (amused, annoyed, delusional, and loud)

ENOUGH!


PAGE 4


PANEL 1

The back of the chair that Eddie is sitting on is shown as his arms, which are brought up as if he had something important to say, are brought up and apart as the spooked couple look at him!


EDDIE (arms only shown)

IT DOESN'T MATTER WHO'S AT FAULT, BECAUSE I HAVE THE MEANS NOW THAT SAYS THAT I'M ALWAYS RIGHT!


EDDIE (arms only shown)

A MEANS THAT WILL ALLOW ME TO START.... “A CRUSADE”.... WHERE IF ANYONE WHO HAS EVER @#$%ED WITH ME WILL PAY IN A MOST DREADFUL WAY!


EDDIE (arms only shown and direct)

JUST LIKE FREDDY BOY!


PUNK ROCKER GIRL (shocked)

WAIT A MINUTE! FROM LAST NIGHT AT THE CLUB ON 24TH STREET! THAT WAS YOU?!


EDDIE (arms only show, loud, and direct)

YES!!!


PANEL 2

A close look at Eddie's eyes.


PUNK ROCKER GUY (not shown and shocked)

BUT I HEARD THAT THE POOR BASTARD WAS EATEN TO DEATH! HOW THE HELL DID YOU MANAGE TO DO THAT?!


EDDIE (amused, delusional, and creepy)

THAT'S WHERE “MY FRIENDS” COME IN. THE KIND WITH A MIGHTY APPETITE FOR LIVING FLESH THAT IT'S HARD TO CONTROL THEM IF THEY GO WITHOUT IT FOR TOO LONG.


PANEL 3

The punk rocker couple notice some creepy figures coming from behind them. The figures are covered in shadows. A moan is heard.


EDDIE (not shown)

SO EVEN IF I CHANGED MY MIND AND WANTED TO STOP THEM, WELL, THAT'S NOT LIKELY TO HAPPEN, @#$%HEADS, BUT PLEASE FEEL FREE TO BEG FOR YOUR LIVES AND SCREAM!


PANEL 4

Same as panel 3, but the zombies are revealed as they attack and eat the punk rocker couple! The couple screams in terror and pain!


PANEL 5

The landlord is outside of the door that goes to the punk rockers' apartment. He is banging at it while hearing the screams!


LANDLORD (angry, loud, and impatient)

HEY! WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU FREAKS DOING IN THERE?!!


LANDLORD (angry, loud, and impatient)

CUT IT OUT OR I'M CALLING THE POLICE!!!


PAGE 5


PANEL 1

Elsewhere, the Appilmax building is shown and some bystander is walking by.


MISS CARSON (not shown and word box)

WE'VE JUST RECEIVED FROM JULIE THE REPORT ON THAT INCIDENT THAT HAPPENED NEAR THAT “PUNK ROCK” PLACE.


MISS CARSON (not shown and word box)

IT WOULD APPEAR THAT THE VICTIM WAS PARTLY EATEN, INSTEAD OF DRAINED OF BLOOD, AND THE WAY HE WAS EATEN SEEMS TO INDICATE IT WASN'T ANOTHER ROGUE WEREWOLF.


PANEL 2

In Mister Adams' secret office, Mister Adams is sitting at his desk reading the file of papers that has the report, while Father Johnson's sword is on the desk. Miss Carson is standing on the other side of the desk.


MISTER ADAMS (charming, serious, and focused)

WHAT WE HAVE FEARED WHEN THE ALCHEMY BOOKS LEFT THIS BUILDING, THANKS TO THE ALCHEMISTS' FOOLISH ATTEMPT TO WIPE OUT THE VAMPIRES, HAS NOW BEEN REVEALED TO HAVE COME TRUE.


MISTER ADAMS (charming, serious, and focused)

SOMEONE, SOMEHOW, HAS MANAGE TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO MIX PROPERLY ONE FORMULA, OR CLOSE ENOUGH FOR SOME RESULT WHICH COULD BE AN EVEN BIGGER DISASTER SINCE SOME OF THE MATERIAL IN THOSE BOOKS ARE QUIET DELICATE WHEN IT COMES TO STABILITY.


MISS CARSON (business-like)

FROM WHAT JULIE WAS ABLE TO SEE FROM THE SCENE, SHE BELIEVES THAT ZOMBIES MAY HAVE BEEN INVOLVED.


MISTER ADAMS (charming, serious, and focused)

AND I TRUST HER JUDGMENT.


PANEL 3

A past scene of Julie, the silver knight, fighting zombies and having a hard time with it.


MISTER ADAMS (not shown and word box)

SINCE SHE HAS HAD EXPERIENCE WITH THEM, EVEN THOUGH NOT SO GOOD OF ONE.


MISTER ADAMS (not shown and word box)

THIS MEANS THAT SOMEONE MANAGED TO CREATE THE ZOMBIE POWDER WHICH STIMULATES TEMPORARY MILD ACTIVITY IN DEAD CELLS.


PANEL 4

Back to the office and Mister Adams and Miss Carson.


MISTER ADAMS (charming, serious, and focused)

BUT DESPITE BEING ZOMBIES, “SOMEONE” HAD TO REANIMATED THEM AND IS NO DOUBT CONTROLLING THEM SINCE WANDERING ZOMBIES ARE EASIER TO FIND WHILE I BELIEVE SOON WE'LL FIND A PATTERN INVOLVING THEM AND WHO'S EVER CONTROLLING THEM.


MISS CARSON (business-like)

SO YOU THINK THIS MIGHT BE A SERIAL KILLING AND THE ZOMBIES ARE THE MURDER WEAPON? THAT THERE WILL BE MORE VICTIMS?


MISTER ADAMS (charming, serious, and focused)

IT'S JUST A GUESS, A GUT FEELING YOU COULD SAY, THOUGH I'M SERIOUSLY HOPING THAT I'M WRONG FOR THE SAKE OF THOSE POOR SOULS BEING TARGETED.


PANEL 5

Miss Carson notices Father Johnson's sword on the desk.


MISS CARSON (a little curious)

EXCUSE ME, SIR, BUT ISN'T THAT....?


MISTER ADAMS (not shown)

FATHER JOHNSON'S SWORD.


MISTER ADAMS (not shown)

THE SYMBOL ON IT INTRIGUED ME AND I HAD SOME PEOPLE DO SOME RESEARCH ON IT.


PAGE 6


PANEL 1

A closer look at the symbol on the sword.


MISTER CARSON (not shown)

AS MY ASSISTANT YOU KNOW CERTAIN THINGS AND ONE OF THEM OF COARSE IS ABOUT THE HISTORY OF WITCH HUNTING.


MISS CARSON (not shown)

YES, IT WAS BASED ON IGNORANCE OR FASCISM WHERE BLIND RELIGION OVERCAME RATIONAL LOGIC AND WAS MADE INTO AN EXCUSE FOR THE MURDER OF INNOCENT PEOPLE WHO WERE DECLARED A WITCH, WHILE A VERY FEW OF THEM WERE ALCHEMISTS WHO UNINTENTIONALLY STARTED THIS BECAUSE PEOPLE BACK THEN COULDN'T UNDERSTAND THEIR ACHIEVEMENTS AND SAW IT AS BLACK MAGIC BASED ON WILD SATANIC RITUALS.


MISTER ADAMS (not shown)

THERE BY MAKING AN ALCHEMIST AND A WITCH THE SAME THING, AS WELL AS A MAJORITY OF PEOPLE FALSELY ACCUSED OF BEING ONE, WHILE THE ONES WHO CLAIMED TO BEING ALCHEMISTS AND DID NOTHING BUT MIX THINGS TOGETHER WHILE HOPING FOR A RESULT WAS SPARED BECAUSE THEIR ACTUAL RESULTS WERE WITHIN THE LEVEL OF UNDERSTANDING OF THAT TIME.


PANEL 2

(PAST SCENE, 1716) Mary Hicks and her daughter Elizabeth being hanged.


MISTER ADAMS (not shown and word box)

AND AS WE BOTH KNOW THAT THERE STILL WITCH HUNTING IN PLACES LIKE SOUTH AFRICA AND INDIA WHICH FOR SOME IS A METHOD TO GETTING THE PROPERTY OF A FAMILY RELATIVE.


MISS CARSON (not shown and word box)

BUT THESE ARE THE KIND OF HUNTS THAT THE PUBLIC KNOWS AND ARE AWARE OF.


MISTER ADAMS (not shown and word box)

CORRECT, WHILE THERE ARE WITCH HUNTS THAT HAPPEN IN THE SHADOWS. ONES THAT ARE LINKED WITH HERITAGE OF LONG AGO THAT PEOPLE THOUGHT ENDED WHEN IT BECAME OUTLAWED, BUT SADLY WORDS MADE INTO LAW AREN'T ENOUGH FOR SOME.


PANEL 3

Three religious and hood figures are shown behind a table in a holy decorated room.


MISTER ADAMS (not shown and word box)

IRONICALLY, THEY CALL THEMSELVES THE SHADOW INQUISITION WHO CONTINUE THE DREADED TRADITION OF HUNTING DOWN AND EXTERMINATING ANYONE THEY ACCUSED OF WITCHCRAFT WHICH BEGAN IN ENGLAND IN 1684 AND GREW WITH MEMBERS, EVEN FROM OTHER COUNTRIES LIKE EUROPE AND SWITZERLAND, WHEN THE LEGALITY OF WITCH HUNTING DECLINED MORE AND MORE.


MISS CARSON (not shown and word box)

AND FATHER JOHNSON WAS A MEMBER?


MISTER ADAMS (not shown and word box)

OBVIOUSLY HE WAS SINCE HE HAD THIS SWORD WITH HIS PERSON.


PANEL 4

Elsewhere, Sandy is shown curled up in a empty hallway and it's dark. She looks depressed as if she's lost spiritually.


MISTER ADAMS (not shown and word box)

I HATE TO DO THIS, MISS CARSON, BUT WE HAVE TO QUESTION SANDY TO SEE IF SHE KNOWS ANYTHING, EVEN THOUGH I'M SURE IT WON'T BE MUCH SINCE THE PRIEST WAS USING HER AND NO DOUBT PLANNED TO KILL HER AFTER THAT USE CAME TO AN END.


MISS CARSON (not shown and word box)

I ASSURE YOU THAT HE WAS, BUT ARE YOU SURE IT'S A GOOD IDEA TO PUT HER THROUGH THAT?


MISS CARSON (not shown and word box)

AFTER FINDING OUT WHAT THE FATHER WAS GOING TO DO TO HER, SHE NO DOUBT FEELS MORE LIKE THE HELL-SPAWN DEMON THAT HE MADE HER BELIEVE SHE WAS.


PANEL 5

A closer look at the depressed Sandy and next to her the shadow of the savage Sandy werewolf on the wall.


MISTER ADAMS (not shown and word box)

I'M VERY SORRY ABOUT THIS, BUT WE HAVE MORE THEN THE ALCHEMISTS TO WORRY ABOUT AND AN ARMY OF “FATHER JOHNSONS” COMING AFTER US IS A VERY SERIOUS SITUATION, ESPECIALLY IF HE WAS ABLE TO GAIN USEFUL INTELLIGENCE ON US WHICH SOME PERHAPS CAME FROM SANDY THROUGH MANIPULATION.


PAGE 7


PANEL 1

Somewhere else, an abandon-looking apartment that looks like a mess. The shadow of a woman, Feather, is shown. Punk rock music is heard through the open window.


PANEL 2

(DREAM SCENE) Two blurry figures are shown.


BLURRY FIGURE #1 (dream voice)

É-HOO'KÔHOHE, TIS-SEE-WOO-NA-TIS?


TRANSLATION: IS IT RAINING, TIS-SEE-WOO-NA-TIS?


PANEL 3

Feather's eyes are the main focus as they open in shock!


FEATHER (eyes only shown, shocked, and thought balloon)

GRANDMOTHER!!!


PANEL 4

Feather is sitting on the floor with her back on the wall. She acts like someone who just woke up and is starting to get slightly annoyed by the punk rock music she's hearing.


FEATHER (a little dropy and a little annoyed)

WHAT THE HELL IS THAT NOISE?


PANEL 5

The slightly dazed Feather walks towards the open window where the punk rock music is coming from.


FEATHER (a little dazed, a little annoyed, and low tone)

GEEZ, IT SOUNDS LIKE A CAT COUCHING FROM A HAIRBALL IN STEREO.
