We’ve all had that feeling of loss of something in our lives, whether it was an object, or possibly a loved one. I want you to harness this emotional energy and dreadfully display it onto the page. Or perhaps it wasn’t dreadful at all? Perhaps it was a soft, gentle release?
Our topic for Write-Off 5 is Death.
I want you to imagine that you have been given the task to be the final writer to your character(s). There will be no re-birth, there will be no resurrection. No more printing. This is it, they are gone. This prompt is not designed for a shock and awe factor. Take the characters that we have forever immortalized in our hearts, and make them mortal.
The rules are that you are to create a comic where your character(s) is/are consciously aware that this is the end for them. They must be deceased by the end of the comic, with no return. Who is it? Is it a group, a single being, a team? What will the world be without them? What is etched on our titan’s tomb? What is their final feat that separates them from us? Where does it happen? Is it on a rooftop somewhere, or does it happen quietly in a retirement home? Why? How did it come to be?
Capture the essence of what makes them heroes, or villains. Show us the emotion from your character’s perspective. Make us, the audience, truly feel. Move us. Make us cry.
Up to 10 Comic Pages max. Send to @stuartdn86 and I. February 5th is the last submission day. Assume that this starts now.
Remember, you’re the final writer. So how will they be remembered?
