So maybe four or five years ago now, Viper Comics held a contest looking for up-and-coming writers. You were supposed to write a complete story in five pages, in comic script format, and submit it to them. The story could feature any existing character (no matter who they belonged to), and the winner would be able to help create a new comic for Viper (and assumedly write it).
This is the story I wrote for the contest. I let my friend Dave read it and he hated it, so I never did end up submitting it (He wrote a Mad Hatter story, but didn’t win). The thing is, as a comic it doesn’t work. There’s way too many panels per page, and WAY too much dialogue per panel. The story is much better, but still, I was trying to cram too much into five pages, and the ending for the villains is probably a little problematic, but at the same time, I think there’s a lot to like about it too. I edited it slightly, but only to remove unnecessary description: the dialogue is unchanged.
You can read the story under the cut. It features Wally and his twins, and takes place after the end of Wally’s series, but before “The Flash: Rebirth.”
I know there are some issues, but I really hope you enjoy it anyway. I really enjoyed revisiting it, warts and all.
And honestly, who doesn’t need some Wally West in their night?
