Action scenes!

Action scenes aren't the easiest things in the world to write. The natural inclination, especially for me, is to see action scenes in my head the way they might take place in a movie. It isn't that simple, however, because I can't just pluck out a few stills from a movie and write them onto a script page. I have to consider how to move the story from panel to panel without overscripting (making it hard to see because there's too much action on a page) or underscripting (making it hard to follow because there isn't enough action to bridge the story from one panel to the next). Today there are only three panels because we're focusing on the sudden surprise of Theresa getting her ass whooped. There'll be much more action on the next couple of pages.

And, for the record? Not evil rape tentacle goo.
