Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1, Page 1

The memory scene fades on Sigdi Thundershield making a grilled cheese sandwich for young Durkon
"Durkon": You're wasting your time.
"Durkon": So to speak.

Panel 2, Page 1

"Durkon": I get what you're trying to do. I asked a simple question that would help me impersonate you, and you showed me an elaborate memory-scene about your mother.
"Durkon": You're hoping your clueless friends will notice the lag, and maybe start to wonder if their buddy's corpse is being driven around like a stagecoach by an evil spirit.
"Durkon": (Because it is.)
"Durkon": Could happen, right?

Panel 3, Page 1

"Durkon": Wrong.
"Durkon": We're inside your mind, which means everything that happens in here happens at the speed of thought.
"Durkon": Only a split second will pass outside your skull, no matter how many memories you give me at once.

Panel 4, Page 1

Durkon: Then wha d'ye care if'n I watch wha I wanna watch?
"Durkon": I don't.
"Durkon": But three days ago, you were fighting me over stuff like Roy's name, and now you're giving me more than I asked for.

Panel 5, Page 1

"Durkon" grabs Durkon by the beard.
"Durkon": And I just wanted to make sure you understood that you are wasting.
"Durkon": Your.
"Durkon": Time.

Panel 6, Page 1

"Durkon": But it's really all the same to me. The sooner I absorb all your memories, the sooner I can stop talking to you.
"Durkon": Usually, the process takes a few months, but it's not a problem if you want to start your eternal dormancy early.
Durkon struggles against his bonds.
Durkon: Rnnnnh!

Panel 7, Page 1

"Durkon" walks back to Durkon's eyes and looks out at the world.
"Durkon": At any rate, I still got what I needed from your little tableau, so as to best imitate you.

Panel 8, Page 1

Reverse angle, with Durkon and "Durkon" visible in Durkon's eyes.
"Durkon": Just two little words.

Panel 9, Page 1

Zoom out further to reveal Durkon's vampirized body.

Panel 1, Page 2

The scene around him is now shown. Bandana is shouting orders to the crew, since the Mechane seems to be caught in a storm.

Panel 2, Page 2

A bolt of lightning hits the engine of the Mechane with a "KAAABOOM", setting it on fire.

Panel 3, Page 2

"Durkon": THOR'S NUTS!!
