History – Chapter 1, Page 2

For all of who have been enjoying the artwork, here is some more. For those who were wondering if this story has words which get in the way of viewing the beautiful artwork, the answer is yes, it does.

***Transcript***

Panel 1 A birds–eye view (from some distance) of a fairly large village nestled in the side of mountain in the Bavarian Alps. Ric (common buzzard) is perched on a limb in the foreground to the left.
CAP: THE HISTORY OF THE DARK CANDLE (THOUGH SOME CALL IT LEGEND) HAS ITS HOME HIGH IN THE MOUNTAINS OF BAVARIA.
Panel 2 Same view, but Ric has now spread his wings and launched himself off the limb.
CAP: IT IS SPRING OF 955 AD, SOME 23 YEARS SINCE THE BARON FRIDERIC STEPPED INTO HIS FATHER’S SHOES.
Panel 3 We are pulled in closer to the village as we stay with Ric, who is flying over the village proper now. Snow still apparent in the shot.
CAP: THE WINTER JUST PAST WAS THE HARSHEST IN RECENT MEMORY, LEAVING ONLY A FEW NECESSITIES THAT WERE NOT IN SHORT SUPPLY.
Panel 4 Overhead of two children chasing each other. Ric in the foreground and his shadow falling near the children.
CAP: FORTUNATELY, THE YOUNG QUICKLY FORGET.
Panel 5 Two or women setting out a table. Ric flies by above them.
CAP: AND THEIR ELDERS HAVE LEARNED HOW TO MOVE ON.
Panel 6 Shot comes from behind Gonzago who shades his eyes as he looks across the village from the front of his shop/home. Ric may be seen in the sky once again.
CAP: AS SOON AS THE BARON ARRIVES, THE CELEBRATION OF SPRING WILL BEGIN.

    With all the really nice comments we’ve been getting from far and wide, it’s important to recall that while the artwork is what you notice, the story is what drives it all. So kudos to Michael (Woody) for his intriguing script that keeps me wondering where it’s all going!
