An Out of Continuity,Wacky Excursion into Elseworlds Comedy
words and art by Jon Karl Franklin Haynes
PAGE ONE (three panels)
Panel One: A bird's eye view of a lovely beach house, with
a small doghouse in the backyard. The house is at a three-quarter
angle to the reader.
Panel Two: The same view, but closer and at more of a front angle
to the house. The dog house in the back is no longer visible.
Panel Three: Interior of the living room of the house. A front
view of a large sofa. Hal Jordan, in full costume, is sitting on the sofa,
limp and awkward looking. It is obvious that he is dead, although there
is no sign of decay. To the left of Hal is GUY GARDNER, in his Green Lantern
costume. KYLE RAYNER in his Green Lantern costume stands to the right.
A small scuff mark might be noticable on the toe of Hal's right foot.
Kyle and Guy both look worried, although the facial expression on GUY
GARDNER might not completely conceal a tiny bit of happiness.
PAGE TWO (five panels)
Panel One: A frontal view of Kyle, holding his arms out inquisitively.
Panel Two: A frontal view of Guy, arms folded and in deep thought.
Panel Three: Kyle and Guy, talking to each other. Hal can be
seen in the background with his head hanging off the arm of the couch.
Panel Four: Kyle is talking alot, and using his hands to do it.
He should be seen as a spastically excited person in this panel.
Panel Five: Guy with his arms folded again, in deep and evil
PAGE THREE (Five panels)
Panel One: A spectacular View of the JLA Watchtower on the Surface
of the moon. The Earth can be seen in the distance.
Panel Two: Interior of the Watchtower. This panel should be larger
than the rest on the page. KYLE RAYNER stands near a door, looking over
the rest of the JLA who are sitting at the round table. Only SUPERMAN
and Martian Manhunter are visible, and have their backs to the reader.
Kyle has his arm extended toward a door, with an open hand of greeting
as if presenting something or someone.
Panel Three: GUY GARDNER and Hal Jordan come through the door
Kyle is pointing at. Guy is obviously having difficulty using his power
ring to make Hal walk. This panel should look extremely hilarious.
Panel Four: Front view of SUPERMAN, Martian Manhunter, BATMAN, The Flash, and Aquaman, all looking sternly toward the reader. No one says a word.
Panel Five: Front view of GUY GARDNER and Hal. Guy has a nervous
look on his face and is trying to use his Power Ring to make Hal's arm
move like he is waving. Guy also has a weird look on his mouth, as this
is the first time he has attempted ventriliquism.
PAGE FOUR (five panels)
Panel One: SUPERMAN shakes Hal's hand, which is rather limp.
Guy is struggling to keep Hal looking normal by use of his Power Ring.
Panel Two: Hal's head slips and falls into SUPERMAN's Chest.
Panel Three: Kyle jumps in between Hal and SUPERMAN. Guy is lifting
Hals head back up with his ring and doing ventriliquism behind it.
Panel Four: BATMAN is still sitting at the table. His hand is
on his chin as though he is pondering something.
Panel five: The Flash steps forward, extending his hand to Hal.
Guy is also in this panel, still having trouble with the act of making
Hal look fluidly mobile. In the background, BATMAN can be seen sneaking
off into the shadows near a giant glass map of the world.
PAGE FIVE (five panels)
Panel One: Martian Manhunter stands and talks to Hal. The other
JLA members should be seen in the background of this panel, standing around
and looking bored.
Panel Two: Guy is trying to make Hal talk, and is doing a lame
job of keeping his mouth shut during the ventriliquism.
Panel Three: Kyle holds up his finger as though an idea just
hit him. He has a nervous smile on his face. Aquaman can now be seen standing
Panel Four: GUY GARDNER sneezes, releasing his Power Ring hold
on Hal. Hal begins to fall forward.
Panel Five: Hal falls against Aquaman, impaling himself on Aquaman's
PAGE SIX (Five Panels)
Panel One: Aquaman is in shock as he looks upon Hal's lifeless
body. His harpoon hand is impaled in Hal's chest, but is not sticking
out the other side. GUY GARDNER is pointing at Aquaman, accusing him of
Panel Two: BATMAN crashes through the glass map of the world,
in his classic fear-invoking pose. SUPERMAN has his back to the reader,
pointing at BATMAN.
Panel Three: BATMAN stands in the midst of the JLA, looking at
Aquaman and Hal, who are to his right, from the readers perspective. BATMAN
looks calm and collected, while at the same time Aquaman is in a state
of angered confusion and is pointing at his harpoon hand and Hal, still
hanging off it.
Panel Four: Only BATMAN is in this Panel, and it is from a downward
perspective so that the reader looks up at him. He is looking ominous
at pointing toward the reader. He looks a bit angry.
Panel Five: Kyle, Guy, and The Flash are all looking surprised,
although Flash has his hand on his chin as if in thought.
PAGE SEVEN (Five Panels)
Panel one: BATMAN is pointing at G'nort, who is standing in the
midst of all the glass from the world map that BATMAN just trashed.
Panel two: SUPERMAN, Flash, Kyle, Aquaman, Guy, Martian Manhunter
all looking at the reader surprised. Aquaman is lowering Hal's body to
Panel Three: Hal is now on the floor. BATMAN is holding his leg
by the ankle, and that is all of Hal that the reader is able to see. BATMAN
is pointing to the stain on his toe.
Panel four: This panel should be completely identical to the
previous panel, with the exception of Hal. BATMAN's hand is now open,
and Hal's leg has dropped to the floor.
PAGE EIGHT (Seven Panels)
Panel One: The entire panel is black, filled only with sound
Panel Two: The entire JLA is laying on the ground, pounded to
near unconsciousness by the might of G'Nort. The Flash is rubbing his
head. G'nort is gone.
Panel Three: BATMAN is pointing at GUY GARDNER, obviously angered.
Panel four: A panel of BATMAN in a classic Neal Adams pose, one
of the poses that he is often in when giving a speech. His hand is up
toward his face looking almost like he is getting ready to slap someone.
Panel Five: BATMAN is still in nearly the exact same pose as
last panel in this extreme close up.
Panel Six: SUPERMAN in a waist up shot, looking directly at the
readers. His hands are at his sides in the classic pose.
Panel Seven: An extreme close up of SUPERMAN looking at the reader,
with his index finger held near his face. He has a smile on his face,
as though he is giving out useful information to a group of small children
