The Destructoid Comic: When it rains, it pours


1:00 AM on 01.20.2009



Well here it is! Page 1 of the Destructoid community driven comic. This week's winning comment was from ArcticFox:

"The scene: A dark boardwalk arcade, lit only by the lights of the games inside on a rainy evening. The arcade has old cabinets of Daytona USA with INSERT COIN burnt into the screen. Games of Area 51, Police Trainer, Ski Ball and Time Crisis II are unoccupied. The place is empty except for two people; a bored clerk with a cigarette loosely hanging from his lips playing his DS in front of racks of Chinese rip-off plushes of Sonic, Knuckles and Tales with a sign reading 500 Tickets in front. The other person in the arcade is a silhouetted figure standing in front of an old version of Street Fighter II. We can't see the player as he is lit only by the arcade screen.
Suddenly, from outside, we hear something very large land from just outside the entrance. Its so heavy that you hear the boardwalk cracking. It's Destructor-Toid, though we don't see it at this point. The final frame on the page is Jim, outlined by a lightning strike, wearing a bandoleer of shotgun shells and holding a pump action shotgun. Looking straight at the shadowy figure playing Street Fighter II, as the clerk stares dumbfounded at Jim and his cigarette falling out of his mouth, Jim speaks the first line of the comic:
"The President has been kidnapped by Ninjas ... and that's the least of our problems." End scene."

I tried to stick with the general outline as much as I could. What do you think? Do you like where it's going? Want to push the story ahead? Then go ahead! You know what to do!

THE RULES:

1. You have 24 hours from the time this blog was posted to suggest what happens next, after that, I will choose the winning comment! The page will then be posted the following week.

2. Try to keep it relatively SFW. 

3. You can only make a suggestion once per week. 

4. Your suggestion has to fit on one page.

Things to think about for the next comic:

The loud crashing noise in the third panel was caused by the Destructor-toid. Who is the mysterious figure Jim confronts? Why is Jim at the arcade? Why does he need to inform this mysterious figure?

Okay guys, it's all up to you! Your 24 hours starts ... NOW!
