Pity Party - Page 1
Comic written and illustrated by Ryan Reid
Panel 1 (title panel): Pity Party by Ryan
Panel 2: The CARTOONIST sits on his STOOL, with his back to his DRAWING TABLE. He looks sad. A large smoke-like creature, which looks vaguely like a BLACK DOG, hovers over him, and whispers in his ear.
Your art stinks.
Panel 3: The BLACK DOG coils closer around the CARTOONIST.
The BLACK DOG entombs the CARTOONIST. All that is left are his GLASSES, and his DEAD EYES.
Panel 5: Suddenly, ROBOT and FRANCIS THE SHEEP appear. FRANCIS holds a comical device: it appears to be part space gun, and part rotating fan. She blows the BLACK DOG out an OPEN WINDOW. ROBOT shouts to an unseen group.
WAIT! Hold it! Stop!
Panel 6: ROBOT demands answers. Only small, harmless remnants of the BLACK DOG remain.
What is going on here?!
Panel 7: The CARTOONIST, still sitting at his drawing table, is now surrounded by his creations: FRANCIS THE SHEEP, THE CROWS, DEATH, and ROBOT. DEATH is holding family-sized BOWL OF POPCORN.
FRANCIS THE SHEEP
It’s a pity party!
We’re all invited!
I brought popcorn!
