MAD WORLD


CHAPTER ONE

PAGE ONE
Panel One: A white stripe races down the Old McDonald Road, overgrown with weeds and grass, still a cloud of dust rises quickly behind, like a jet at full throttle. The usually quiet road is unaccustomed to such high speed travel this time in the afternoon, well, at any time actually, but today is a special day: payday.
Panel Two: Today nothing can wipe the grin off of the young man driving the beat up Dodge Shadow's face, money in his pocket, a full tank of gas and a beautiful brunette dressed in black as his co-pilot on his journey into mystery.
Panel Three: the young brunette spoke loudly over the deafening rap music.
Jackie: "Jason, maybe you should slow down," the vehicle now approaching a speed accessing 130 kilometers an hour.
Panel Four: Jason's grin now stretching from ear to ear
Jason: "Don't worry; I rip down the back roads all the time!"
Panel Five: As the two continued to speed down the gravel road the young woman gripped the roof-handle so hard her knuckles were starting to turn white.
Jackie: "Hey! Look out!"
Panel Six: A small furry animal darted in front of the car.
SFX: THUMP!
Panel Seven: The brunette in black unable to watch dropped her head into her hands.
Jackie: "that could have been some little girl's cat ya' know!"

PAGE TWO
Panel One: Jason can't hold back his laughter.
Jason: "Not anymore it's not!" he snickers
Panel Two: As he ran his eyes up her body he noticed a parting the trees and stopped the car, with dust flying all around them he quickly threw it into reverse.
Panel Three: Surprised by the sudden stop the woman had almost been jerked from her seat,
Jackie: "What the fuck, Jason?!"
Panel Four: Close up of the road. It wasn't so much a road as it was a path, it didn't look like anyone had driven down it in a long time as there were no ruts that they tires could fall into
Jason: "There's a road there I haven't seen before, I want to check it out."
Panel Five: The tree branches scraped along the roof and sides as they continued on. Moving slowly they could hear the dead twigs snap as they rolled over each one, the growth along the sides of the road was tall and bugs were leaping as they passed. The trees acted like a canopy and the shade was welcome as they had been driving in the hot sun for what seemed like hours trying to find a decent spot to get out and have a personal party, even though it wasn't even four in the afternoon yet.
Panel Six: Jason pointed to where the path ended
Jason: "Hey, Jackie, check it out, I think we found our spot."

PAGE THREE
Panel One: The Dodge crept up to a clearing in the trees, in the middle stood a dilapidated brown cabin, The cabin didn't look anyone had been there recently, probably not in years, the windows were boarded up, the swing on the front porch hung on an odd angle, the vegetation and weeds were growing on all sides and signs of rot and moss grew on the walls.
Jackie: "I don't know, kinda gives me the creeps."
Panel Two: The single floor cabin's front steps creaked as they stepped on them and felt like they would give way if much more weight was placed on them. Jackie walked closer to Jason as they approached the front door;
Panel Three: With the bottle of Crown Royal in his hand and with her rubbing up next to him, things were looking good. The brown and broken front door swung open relatively easy, aside from the loud, deep groaning sound which made Jackie's stomach churn adding to her increasing discomfort, she just about tripped over her own two feet as the pair entered inside over the threshold.
Panel Four: [rest of page panel] Once inside they took a moment to look around before continuing; quite roomy and deceiving from outside, the front room was large and filled with cloth covered furniture, the walls were all papered with a striking gold and maroon pattern distracting from the deep green rug on which they stood. In the middle of the room was a low hanging chandelier from which were at least thirty candle shaped lights, there what appeared to be two couches, wide and facing one another with a cloth covered table between the two, on the walls hung portraits, unnamed neither knew who they were, but the style pf clothing pointed to them being older than a hundred years right up to what looked like the late sixties or early seventies.
Panel Five: [inserted in panel four] Most of the smaller portraits seemed to be lined to give one large painting as the focal point, placed above the mantel of a large red brick fireplace with an iron grill, the painting was of an old castle positioned in the middle of a village, much larger than any other building the shadow covered most of the village, the style of the castle was most peculiar as it didn't seem to follow any particular architectural style nor a mix of any either, but rather seemed to be made from the Earth it's self and looked as thought it had spiraled upwards from the middle of the village consuming different dwellings and incorporated them into it's self.

PAGE FOUR
Panel One: Jason was the first to step around the furniture and pull the dust covered sheets of the two couches.
Panel Two: Jackie promptly sat down and waited for him to join him, but he didn't.
Panel Three: Jason exited the room and began to walk around the cabin,
Panel Four: She could hear where he was from the creaking and moaning of the floorboards as he took each step.
Panel Five: Just before she couldn't stand to be alone any longer he returned,
Jason: "You'll never believe this, but there is absolutely nothing else in the house."
Jackie: "What?"

PAGE FIVE
Panel One: he stroked his goatee,
Jason: "Yeah, no beds, no bathroom, no kitchen, no cupboards, nothing, only four empty rooms."
Jackie: "No kitchen or bathroom?"
Jason: "Nothing, it's kinda weird."
Panel Two:
Jackie: "What if I need to go to the bathroom?"
Jason: "I guess you have to squat in the bushes."
Jackie: "Sick."
Panel Three: Jason took the bottle of Crown Royal and removed it from its fancy purple satchel, removed the cap and took a swig, his face contorted from the burning taste.
Panel Four: He passed it to Jackie; she did the same then set it down on the table when Jason pulled out a joint.
Panel Five: Surprisingly as the bottle was placed down there was a sound of glass hitting glass. Panel Six: They looked at the table for a second.
Jason: "Cool, I always wanted a glass table"

PAGE SIX
Panel One: Jason removed the cloth from the table
Jackie: "It's a mirror,"
Panel Two: Jason looking at himself
Jason: "No shit,"
Panel Three: The mirror was sitting on top of the table, the frame was made from gold and each side's patterns of what looked like faces all stretching and pulling from one another connected, in a pale gold.
Jackie: "That's horrible."
Jason: "I think it's pretty cool,"
Jackie: "You would."
Panel Four: The grotesque mirror as about four and a half feet tall and shined as though it had just been polished, Jason first admired the mirror it's self then his eyes came to rest on himself and he took a moment to admire his own reflection,
Jason: "I could see this in my living room--"
Panel Five: a shimmer passed though it
Jason: "--whoa!"
Panel Six: Jackie looks at Jason oddly.
Jackie: "What?"
Jason: "Did you…? I mean… what the fuck was that?"
Jackie: "What??"
Jason: "Something moved in it."
Jackie: "You, maybe?"

PAGE SEVEN
Panel one: panorama view of the two
Jason: "No, smartass. It was like--"he paused to think, "like--" he thought about it again, "-- I don't know what it was like, it was fucking weird though."
Jackie: "What was? You haven't even had more than one drink."
Panel Two: Jason close up
Jason: "No,"
Jason: "it was like, it wasn't me for a second, only it was me… then it was me again… normal I mean."
Panel Three: Jackie close up
Jackie: "Ohhh-kay…" she paused, "what the fuck are you talking about?"
Panel Four: She was getting that creeped out feeling again and shivered,
Jackie: "You feel that draft?"
Panel Five: Jason couldn't take his eyes off of the mirror.
Panel Six: Then it shimmered again!

PAGE EIGHT
Panel One: He let go of it letting it fall to the ground. It had seemed to fall in slow motion and Jackie covered her ears so the crash wouldn't be so loud, only the strange mirror did not break, only landed with a thud.
Panel Two: Jason picked it back up again.
Jason: "Strong,"
Panel Three: Then he looked in it once more, but a sliver of the gold cut his finger and he released it back onto the floor, this time cracking the shining mirror into two.
Jason: "Ow! Motherfucker!" he yelled sucking on his bleeding finger, "ok, so maybe it isn't that strong after all."

PAGE TWENTY-ONE
Panel One: The night's air was cool and crisp tonight. Like a cartoon the lone van in the parking lot of the Coleville Movieplex's parking lot stood under the lamp's light. Joe's in the back of his van playing with some video editing mumbling about how Jenny's (his girlfriend of three years) is a bitch for throwing him out. The temperature inside of the van was battling that of outside; Joe could see his own breath. In the monitor of the video editor he could see his own reflection looking back at him.
Panel Two: Joe isn't the most handsome man on the planet, but even Joe had to stop and look at how he had let himself go on the personal hygiene. He hadn't brushed his teeth in three days, nor shaved for five, and hadn't had a shower for about twice as long as that. He stinks, he stinks and he knows it, hell he stinks and he doesn't really care. His goatee had thickened since he had stopped trimming it, bushy and soiled with bits of his chicken pot pie dinner his stubble was catching up; almost a weak beard had grown in.
Panel Three: His stained blue shirt wasn't doing much for him either, 'as long as it hides my pot belly I'll be ok' he thought, tall and broad shouldered he found it slightly difficult to move around freely in the back of his van.
SFX: KNOCK, KNOCK, KNOCK
Panel Four: The knocking surprised Joe and he jumped up and smacked his head into the roof shaking the van slightly.
Joe: "Ow. Yeah, yeah, yeah, gimme a moment,"
Panel Five: Joe's rubbing his head.
Joe Thinks: 'Man, I so hope that it's not the cops, everything else sucks right now, all I would need is a ticket and that would be it, I bet it's a ticket, I know it's a ticket fucker fuck, fuck, fuck, now what am I going to do? I'm broke as-- as--'
Panel Six: His train of thought had come halting to an abrupt end when he peered out the passenger-side window and saw three odd children peering back at him.

PAGE TWENTY-TWO
Panel One: You can't see their breath nor do they cast a shadow.
BEK #1: "Hey mister?"
BEK#1: "Mister? Can you please give us a ride home, please? Mister?"
Panel Two: Joe could do nothing except stare back at the trio of kids that had come up to his van. Joe looks at the children and just barely cracks open the window and ask what they want. They ask for a ride, almost demanding they give him one.
BEK#1: "We need to go home now; our mother is calling us,"
Panel Three: Joe reaches for the door.
Panel Four: then looks at his hand, breaking the eye contact.
Panel Five: Then to the face of the kid. He's got coal black eyes, no white, no pupil, no iris, only black.
BEK#1: "Let us in! We can't come in unless you say it's ok! Our mother is calling us, please mister LET US IN!"
Panel Six: Joe's fumbles with the clutch, slams it into gear, and screeches out of there.

PAGE TWENTY-THREE
Panel One: Aimsley's sitting up in his room listening to music and playing The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past on his Super Nintendo, he could be playing his Playstation, or his X-Box, but he's going old school with his SNES, we see games like Mario Kart, Golden Eye and Conker's Bad Fur Day are laying on the floor around with some magazines and random garbage. As well as an alarm clock that says 9:14 PM.
Panel Two: Side-shot of him playing games, his door behind him.

Panel Four: Close up of Layla sitting down next to Aimsley, who is still playing Zelda.
Layla: "Good, I suppose. I didn't knock, how did you know I was there?"
Aimsley: "I could hear you breathing."
Layla: "What?"
Aimsley: "Nothing. What's up?"
Panel Five: Dead on shot of the two of them sitting there.
Layla: "I heard about you and Alex."
Aimsley: "I don't feel like talking about that right now."
Layla: "I also heard about Kimble."

PAGE TWENTY-FOUR
Panel One: Aimsley still not turning away from the video game.
Aimsley: "Look, are you going to turn something minor into some teen-drama? Seriously, because if you are, save it for The WB. Write an episode of Smallville or something."
Layla: "Fine. I was just trying to help."
Panel Two: Layla gets up to leave.
Panel Three: Aimsley finally puts the controller down. Layla's opening the door.
Aimsley: "Hey, wait. Look, I'm sorry--"
Panel Four: Same shot as above.
Aimsley: "I don't mean to be rude. Not really… but--
Layla: "--but?"
Aimsley: "-- I'm having a bad week."
Layla: "How long have we been friends?"
Aimsley: "We're not friends. You're my friend's girlfriend."
Panel Five: Close up of Layla.
Layla: "We've hung out everyday for the past two months, I think we're friends."
Panel Six: Aimsley looks down at the floor.
Aimsley: "Hmmm…"
Layla: "'Hmmm…' what?"
Panel Seven: Aimsley looking at Layla.
Aimsley: "Nothing… just figured you didn't like me much."
Layla: "Why would you say that?"
Panel Eight: Layla confused.
Aimsley: "I dunno… nobody else really likes me."
Layla: "Who cares about everyone else?
Panel Nine: Aimsley turns his TV off.
Aimsley: "Hey, what are you doing for the next couple of hours?"
Layla: "Nothing. Why?"
Aimsley: "You should come with me."
Layla: "Where?"

Dono: "That's all!? THAT'S ALL!?"
Steve: "Whoa! Dono! Calm the fuck down!"
Dono: "Fuck you! No! There's no reason to hit a woman at all!"
Steve: "I know, just SHUT THE FUCK UP!"
Panel Six: Steve slams on the breaks and pulls over to the side
Josh: "I still think we should take you to the hospital… what's up?"
Dono: "Hey Steve? Why are we pulling over?"
Panel Seven: Steve turns around to talk to Jackie.
Steve: "Look, if we're not going to take you to the hospital, where're we taking you?"
Jackie: "I just want to go home."
Steve: "Yeah, where is that?"
Jackie: "Fairmont Heights, by the school."
Steve: "Thank you."

PAGE TWENTY-SEVEN
