THE SILVER SURFER: THE LOST ADVENTURE
by Lofficier & Ladronn
LARGER PANEL. ESTABLISHING SHOT of the mysterious mountaineers. They are: a bald, germanic, villainous figure, clearly in charge of the expedition. His name is DRACO. He is looking through a pair of binoculars. Behind him is a human LACKEY. They are accompanied by a squad of sophisticated DOOMBOTS.
CAPTION: ONCE UPON A TIME, IN A NOT TOO FAR DISTANT PAST...
DOOMBOT: I- DETECT- TARGET'S- SIGNATURE- ENERGY- PULSE. TARGET- MUST- BE- CLOSE.
[Note to Letterer: DOOMBOTS speak in robotic style, with dashes between words.]
LACKEY: MEIN GOTT! He's found us first!
DRACO: I don't think so...
The hunters approach a ledge. A DOOMBOT offers a sophisticated gun to DRACO.
DRACO: The WEAPON! QUICK!
The fearful LACKEY attempts to raise an objection.
LACKEY: But what if the WEAPON fails, Herr DRACO...
DRACO: The MASTER'S weapons NEVER fail, you impudent fool!
They cautiously advance through the snow towards the ledge.
DRACO: You're lucky the MASTER is not here.
DRACO: He'd kill you on the spot for your INSOLENCE!
DRACO: I am FAR TOO MERCIFUL...
