As usual it took more than a couple of days to get this up, but I didn’t want to post it until I reached a stopping point I felt good with. This section briefly introduces an element of mystery in the overall story (big thanks to Matt H. for the idea). I’m working my way through page 18 right now, and I probably won’t post the rest until I finish out the issue, on or around page 23. I’ve made some progress on issue two which is going to cover some of the back story for DEREK and GRACE. Issue three will be big on excitement, and involve organized crime. I’ve got some ideas for the bigger events beyond that, but issues four and up are a bit nebulous at present. I hope people are enjoying it. Thanks for reading.

DEREK LOWE (To Himself)
Yeah, eleven will be fine. Vertical door bar is well polished no scuffs. Base plate has a one inch scratch toward the hinge end Lock at the base is a Wuxi. Time here is about 3:30 in the afternoon so it’ll be 5:30 in the morning there. I’ll wanna make sure I don’t hit any early risers. OK. Good to go.

High corner view of the WAREHOUSE; DEREK stands in front of the chalkboard(Left). Arrayed across the floor of the warehouse are 16 doors set into individual brick walls. Each door is different, and each door is numbered with spray paint stencil on plywood. GRACE has a hand truck and is walking toward the door marked 11. (more…)
