What I’m working on…

Here is a sample of what I’m working on. It’s easier to read in word, but this is the best I can do with the WordPress editor. Stuff in Italics and parenthesis will later be translated to Mexican Spanish (if anyone speaks the mexican variant of spanish, feel free to help!) :

PAGE 1, PANEL 1: Establishing Shot: EXTERIOR OF A FANCY STEAKHOUSE NEAR THE MEXICAN BORDER IN CALIFORNIA. I’m trying to find a photo reference of La Cucaracha, in Mexico. This is in an upper-class commercial area; stores and office buildings surround the restaurant. It is near sundown.

PAGE 1, PANEL 2: INTERIOR OF RESTAURANT. This is a classy restaurant. Red velvet curtains, dim lights, waiters in tuxedos. Several well-dressed patrons eat at tabled. Among them are DEFENSOR VALEROSA and his date for the evening, SANDRA. DEFENSOR is wearing a white blazer, white dress pants, white dress shoes, a light blue shirt, and of course, his red and green luchador mask. Sandra has dark hair, dark eyes, and a pleasant smile. She is wearing a red evening dress. DV is regaling Sandra with tails of crime-fighting and danger. SANDRA is very interested.

DEFENSOR VALEROSA: “…so, of course, El Doctor Insano knew he was beaten, so he tried to activate the doomsday device.”

PAGE 1, PANEL 3: More talking. SANDRA leans in close to DV, obviously flirting.

DV: “My Compañeros in Los Justicia Siete were, of course, busy fighting Los Hombres Del Monstruo, so I did the only thing I could.”

SANDRA: “Which was?”

DV: “Throw one of the Doctor’s fiendish enanos at the controls.”

PAGE 1, PANEL 4: DV is confident He moves his hands in form a dome-shape, to suggest an explosion. SANDRA laughs.

SANDRA: “BWA-HA-HA!”

DV: “Boom.”

PAGE 1, PANEL 5: SANDRA is recovering from her fit of laughter.

SANDRA: “You threw a midget? That is soooo wrong!”

DV: “Mi siñora, the little guy was biting my shin. Besides, I stopped the machine and saved the world. (No big deal).”

PAGE 2, PANEL 1: EXTERIOR RESTARANT. DV and SANDRA wait for the valet to bring the car (or perhaps DV gives a ticket to valet.). SANDRA clings to DV.

DV: “Well, it seems that the night is still young. Perhaps you would like to go…somewhere else?

SANDRA: “I’d love to.”

PAGE 2, PANEL 2: FROM ROOFTOP. A man hides in the shadows. We only see that he is hunched, as if he is holding something in front of him.

DV (from below): “Mi Casa? Caballero De la Estrella is there, but he has his own wing.”

SANDRA: “That sounds great. I’d like to meet him.”

PAGE 2, PANEL 3: BELOW, DV and Sandra wait for the car.

DV: “Perhaps he will cook us breakfast.”

SANDRA: “Mmmmmmm.”

PAGE 2, PANEL 4: The car is pulling around. It is a huge, 1970’s, red Cadillac. DV is looking towards it, Sandra looks towards him.

SANDRA: “I was thinking…about what you were telling me. About Doctor Insano. That was about 1973, right?”

DV: Yeah…’72, I think. (Why?)

PAGE 2, PANEL 5: FROM ROOFTOP AGAIN: Hunched man now obviously has a rifle.

SOUND FX: thip!

SANDRA: “I was just wondering why you never see things like that anymore. You know…mad scientists with armies of midgets.”

DV: “Ah. (I Don’t Know.) The world is just different, I guess. You know…darker? More cynical?”

PAGE 3, PANEL 1: DV is holding door for SANDRA, but he is touching his breast. There is a circle of blood forming where he touches.

DV: “It was a simpler time. Sure, a time of extreme dangers, but a time that was just losing its…”

PAGE 3, PANEL 2: From DV’s POV. His hands are covered in blood.

DV: “…innocence. Mi Dios! I’ve been shot!

SANDRA (Off Panel): “What?”

PAGE 3, PANEL 4: SANDRA is getting out of the car, but DV is trying to push her back in.

DV: “No, Sandra! Stay in the car! Someone’s–

PAGE 3, PANEL 5: A bullet goes through DV’s chest, leaving a small red splotch and ending his life. SANDRA, half out of the car, screams.

SANDRA: “EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!”

PAGE 4, PANEL 1 (SPLASH PANEL): A dead, bloody DEFENSOR VALEROSA lays (or lies?) in the arms of SANDRA. She shouts, crying.

SANDRA: “OH MY GOD! SOMEBODY HELP!”

TITLES, CREDITS, AND WHATNOT.
