6 X 6
“Supersonic Free-Falling In Love”
By Ken Henningsen
PAGE 1 (6 PANELS)
Six panel page 1. Panel one is a large vertical panel on the left side of the page. Panels 2-6 are smaller horizontal panels running down the right side of the page. A man is taking a space dive from an extremely high orbit, almost space. The first panel should be him stepping out of a high orbit capsule, reference for this can be found online. Panels 2-6 should show him falling, his figure is very large in the second panel and very small by panel 6. North America should be shown in the distance.

CAPTION 1: STORY TITLE
SUPERSONIC FREE-FALLING IN LOVE
Page 1, Panel 2
Love is a thing of frenzy and madness.
Page 1, Panel 3
It’s what we surrender ourselves to.
Page 1, Panel 4
It frees us.
Page 1, Panel 5
It imprisons us.
Page 1, Panel 6
And it transforms us.
PAGE 2 (5 PANELS)
Five horizontal panels starting in the upper left hand corner and descending like a staircase until the last panel is in the bottom right hand corner. There will be background negative space not filled with panels on this page, those should be lightly detailed with sky and clouds. Beautiful blue azure coloring. Each panel should be a 45 degree head down side profile shot of the space diver as he rockets towards the earth.
Page 2, Panel 1
When I was young I loved without question or reservation.
Page 2, Panel 2
I fell deeply and it was damning.
Page 2, Panel 3
Into the abyss.
Page 2, Panel 4
Into the fire.
Page 2, Panel 5
Unto the shattered remains of self.
PAGE 3 (SPLASH PAGE)
Downward shot of the space diver as he falls towards the earth. He’s getting closer so there should be details of distant fields and houses on the ground, lots of greens and tans. No captions on this page, just a beautiful expansive shot of the dive.
PAGE 4 (5 PANELS)
Five horizontal panels stacked on top of each other descending down the page. Each panel should show the space diver getting closer and closer to the earth, artist’s full discretion on how to portray this.
Page 4, Panel 1
Even the devil’s descent was due to love.
Page 4, Panel 2
The intoxication of another.
Page 4, Panel 3
Being woven together from your broken pieces and theirs.
Page 4, Panel 4
Those moments shared filling in the holes inside your heart and mind.
Page 4, Panel 5
And there below, the sudden stop.
PAGE 5 (3 PANELS)
Three vertical panels running from left to right. The space diver is landing, the parachute has been pulled! The background should be rural and rustic in all of the panels.
Page 5, Panel 1
Space diver is towards the top of the panel.
Beware, the finale approaches---
Page 5, Panel 2
Space diver is in the middle of the panel
---and as inevitable as gravity---
Page 5, Panel 3
Space diver is landing with feet on the ground!
---every story comes to it’s end.
