The Players for "All Tomorrow's Parties"
Hey there sports fans, Al here with the latest:
ECCC is fast approaching this next week but the creative juices are still flowing like mad for the box!
Down below is an excerpt from the Johnny Vega, Man of the Future entitled "All Tomorrow's Parties". It is a book that takes place even before Johnny Vega issue #1 is to take place.
One of my editors had said to me that I needed to have a origin story for Vega so I initially opted to present "It was a dark and stormy night..." but the beginning starts off like that but takes several turns why Vega looks at becoming a Ranger in the first place and what on earth happened to him in issue 4?
Once that book is in hand I will reveal why I, Alan, decided to change up the character.
More of Vega’s past is reveled as a collection will be put together with refurbished pages from the last three issues of Vega that are currently out now. Once that is done more things will come into play.
THE PORTLAND “LOVE” SHOW COMES TO AND END.
Tonight the last day of the Portland Love Show comes to an end for show casing the scratchboard talent of your truly. But there are other works in progress that cross over from one form of artwork to the next. Namely more Corpse Cop!
TALE OF TWO JO(H)NNYS
This particular story is revving up as ECCC comes into light. Once back from the show all my attention will be focused on getting this book put together and printed up.
BLACK BOX COMIX PRESENTS AN EXCERPT FROM "ALL TOMORROW'S PARTIES"
PAGE 6, PL 1
A CLOSE UP OF JADE'S FACE WITH AN AMUSED LOOK ON HER.
Jade Yes that is a line and yes we have met before briefly when the Rangers brought in the remains of that robot that attacked Professor Kcon.
JV. That's right. I Remember now. Jade isn't it?
MODERATE CLOSE UP OF BOTH THEIR UPPER CHEST AND HEAD. AND SHOULDERS. THERE'S A SMILE ON HER FACE AS THEY STAND APART FROM EACH OTHER.
Jade Yes. You got a little banged up by the attack if I remember right helping save the Professor.
JV. Yeah that was then and here we are. Can I buy you a drink Miss Jade?
JD'REL HAS BEEN WATCHING JOHNNY FROM ACROSS THE WAY OF SQUARE. THERE IS A STERN LOOK IN HER EYES FROM THE VISOR SHE IS WEARING.
Shedel OP Jd'rel, what are you doing? Were you expecting something?
MODERATE SIZE PANEL OF SHEDEL TALKING TO HER FRIEND. JD'REL IN THE FOREGROUND LOOKING BACK.
Shedel Don't worry if your going to get him, you will.
A LONG PANEL OF JADE AND JOHNNY WALKING TO A OPEN BAR. THERE IS A FRINGE OVERHANG AS THEY WALK UP.
JV. So what will you have?
Jade I'll think I'll have a Derisian tea.
JV Haven't had one of those yet but.
Nar Then suddenly
PAGE. 7, PL. 1
LARGE PANEL CRASHING THROUGH THE BAR OUT OF THE BRUSH IS ANOTHER ROBOT SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT THAN THE ONE THAT ATTACKED KCON. JADE IS KNOCKED TO THE SIDE WHILE JOHNNY DODGES THE BLOW.
JV Jade get outta here! Whoa!
Robot attacker VEGA you should be here. You are distorting the time flow!
Vega Like hell I am!
EXTREME CLOSE UP OF THE ROBOT'S RED CYCLOPIC EYE.
Robot Attacker Objective Vega, J. Your existence is a temporal anomaly. You disrupt the time flow.
JV OP. That's not the issue robot! You ARE!
VEGA BRINGS A FOOT TO KICK THE HEAD OF THE ROBOT ATTACKER. KNOCKING THE HEAD TO ONE SIDE. BUT WITH LITTLE SUCCESS. THERE IS PAIN IN VEGA'S FACE.
Robot attacker Your physical assault will do nothing to me.
JV I know that.
KCON WATCHES FROM HIS MONITOR THE ASSAULT BY VEGA. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME WE SEE KCON IN PROFILE. THE MONITOR IS A HOLOGRAPHIC PROJECTOR
Kcon Vega at this point should roll and run towards the armory at this time.
A MODERATE SHOT OF VEGA RUNNING THROUGH THE CROWD TELL THEM TO GET OUT OF WAY. THE ROBOT ATTACKER CRASHING THROUGH PLANTERS AND DESTROYING THEM AND PUSHING OTHER RANGER CADETS OUT OF THE WAY.
JV Move! Get of the way!
After that, anything goes!
And I am outta of here!
