PAGE 18 (Four panels)

(Note: More Super 8 camera “footage.”)

Panel 1: Barron Jr. has zoomed in on something (possibly make it clearer with a little “ZOOM” in one corner of the panel). It is one of Phoebe’s ankles. The tip of a tentacle has wrapped itself around the ankle.

Panel 2: Phoebe in the middle of being yanked off her feet and dragged under the rail by the pull of the tentacle. Her hands are splayed out forward as she is falling, her sunglasses gone askew.

Phoebe (jagged, panicked balloon) (1): WHOOP!

Translation (1): OUP !

Panel 3: View over the rail. Phoebe has been pulled into the sea, her fall throwing up a column of water.

SFX – Phoebe hitting the water (2): SPLASH!

Translation (2): SPLASH!

Panel 4: Phoebe’s head resurfacing briefly as she pulls herself back up above water.

Phoebe (3): Akhhh!

Translation (3): Arghhhh !

PAGE 19 (Four panels)

(Note : footage)

Panel 1: Another, smaller column of water on the surface of the sea as Phoebe is jerked back underwater.

SFX – SUBMERGING (1): Fwoosh!

Translation (1): Fwoosh !

Panel 2: A tentacle has emerged above the same surface of the water as in Panel 1. It is swinging around Phoebe’s bikini top, which the beast below has presumable stripped off her. (Indicate with motion lines.)

Panel 3: A spot on the deck of the Yellow Rose, close-up. Phoebe’s bikini top landing on the deck, presumably tossed there by the beast below.


Translation (2): Splut !

Panel 4: Same as Panel 2, but now it’s the bikini bottom landing next to the top.


Translation (3): Plop !

PAGE 20 (Single panel page)

(Note : footage)

Single panel: Wide “shot” showing a certain amount of pandemonium on deck. Barron Sr. and Peony are leaning over the rail, looking horrified at what they see in the water. A little further on, YACHT CREWMAN #1, an African-American man and YACHT CREWMAN #2, a Latino man, both neatly attired in pseudo-naval uniforms, are lowering themselves in a boat over the side as part of a rescue attempt.

Peony (1): My baby! My baby!

Translation (1): Mon bébé ! Mon bébé !

Barron Sr. (2): God dammit!

Translation (2): Mon dieu !
