A young girl brings her sister to meet her new friend, the self proclaimed King of May
This week marks my return from hiatus with a little script about Spring. If the title reminds you of King of the Cats it’s because they are kind of related, it’s not a sequel, more of a spiritual cousin. Also anyone who has read my feature Good Old World might recognise that it is conceivably set in the same universe.
Feels good to be back, hope you enjoy it.
The King of May
This week’s guest script comes from Mark Dicks and is the opening for a planned series of graphic novels. They are presented here in the hopes that he might gain interest from an artist. If you are, or know anyone who is an artist interested in collaborating on an epic sci-fi series please do contact Mark using the email provided on the title page of the script.
Here’s Mark’s introduction:
I’ve had this idea brewing in my noggin for years now dubbed as my ‘Five Part Epic’. I’m not entirely sure if it will ever be epic, but at the very least I am sure it will be made up of five parts.
However, none of this idea as of late exists on paper. That’s whereabouts Rob and Two Pages a Week comes in. So thank you Rob, and many thanks Two Pages a Week for finally making me notch my scribing digits into gear.
What you’ll discover within my contribution for this week is an attempt at the opening for part one. Hopefully one day this story will make its way onto the pages of a published graphic novel, preferably before I kick the bucket of course.
This script also marks the first on Two Pages a Week that is completely dialogue free, something I’ve been wanting to do myself for a while.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
The Tornado Tamer
This week sees my small hiatus continue and another guest script published. Tall Girl is a beautiful love story from David Crow, who gave us The Deal a couple of weeks ago.
A short intro from David:
I’m not sure this needs much introduction. It’s Valentine’s Day – so here’s a love story.
Hope you enjoy it. Happy Valentine’s Day.
This week sees another two pager from Alexa Brown, writer of Mugged and The Contest.
Here’s Alexa’s introduction:
Following my previous two more comic scripts, Mugged and The Contest, this is something about the effect unhappiness has on a person. I’ve also realised this is my second script that features physical morphing … perhaps I ought to write an animation script next time!
Hope you like it, I certainly did (also I recommend following Alexa on Twitter if you’re not already).
