Think of a City - The Depths

Whoa, whoa, whoa!  Think of a City has three-way collaborations?!  Now I can't help but wonder all over again what the division of labour would have been between Rosy Higgins, Ted Brandt, and Jeremy Whitley to come up with the extremely beautiful 048.

(As I type this, I'm realizing that this is courtesy of the creative team behind Princeless, so I assume they probably approached the image in a way not dissimilar to how they'd approach the comic.  Either way, I love the results).

1 - Establishing shot of an abandoned city at night.  Cars litter the streets, forgotten. Plants are starting to grow through the concrete. The towers of a nuclear power plant are visible looming in the background.

CAPTION (CAPTAIN): Intel says they're camped near the plant.

2 - Now at the power plant. A couple of tents are set up near the towers, next to a lake that glows faintly in the night. A man stands at the lake's edge, relieving himself.

CAPTION (PRIVATE): H-how near?

3 - Closer on the man as he zips up. He looks off-panel to some voices from the tents.

VOICE (off-panel): You coming back for the next hand?


4 - The man is walking back and away, leaving the focus on the lake.

MAN: Yeah, yeah...

CAPTION (CAPTAIN): The spill was years ago.

5 - Closer on the lake as a monstrous creature emerges from the thick, glowing waters.

CAPTION (CAPTAIN): We move in at dawn.
