Pity Party - Page 3
Comic written and illustrated by Ryan Reid
Panel 1: DEATH looks over shelves full of ideas related to his stories. He munches popcorn.
Oh! Look at all the peculiar ways people die.
Panel 2: The CROWS look over shelves of ideas related to their stories.
Look at all the peculiar ways people live!
Judgement for days!
Panel 3: FRANCIS finds an entire room devoted to exploring the multiverse.
There’s an entire wing of stupid space adventures!
Panel 4: The CARTOONIST and ROBOT investigate other shelves full of ideas. The IDEAS are represented by all manner of things - from BOOKS, to JARS to STRANGE UNKNOWABLE MACHINES. The CARTOONIST looks at a JAR that eerily looks back at him.
No one should see any of these. None of them are any good.
ROBOT (accidentally drops a fragile idea)
That’s not…Oh! Er, maybe not that one…
Panel 5: ROBOT and the CARTOONIST look at a huge PAINTING hanging on a wall. Only the bottom part of the painting can be seen, showing the shoes of a female person and a male person.
Who are these two?
They’re in a story I’m writing now. I don’t know if I can finish it…do you smell smoke?
Panel 6: FRANCIS runs down a corridor toward CROW 1. SMOKE fills the room. FRANCIS is in a panic.
HEY! Did you start that fire?!
CROW 1 (definitely started the fire)
The squirrel ideas must be destroyed.
Panel 7: FRANCIS frantically puts out the fire with a FIRE EXTINGUISHER. DEATH and CROW 2 wander in, wearing SOMBREROS and drinking MARGARITAS. DEATH still has his POPCORN BOWL, but now CROW 2 is lounging in it.
Where have you two been?!
DEATH (obviously been drinking)
We found a great idea for a Mexican cantina on level 12!
CROW 2 (very obviously been drinking)
