|Book 2: Angleworm||Page 5: Settling Well||
The background is white.
- Panel 1
Zane is laying on Dr. Angstrom's low, backless couch, his eyes open and his hands folded across his stomach. Mercy is curled up next to his head, sleeping. Zane says, "And that's when I wake up." The colors are the normal, cool blues associated with Dr. Angstrom's study.
- Panel 2.
Dr. Angstrom is sitting next to Zane's couch in an armchair, taking notes on a small notepad as he says "These dreams, Mr. Zane... Do they always take place in the antiques shop? Zane answers "Not always. Sometimes I'm in the *library*. Or that *pub* on Harold Street."
- Panel 3.
Zane looks worried and hesitant as he continues, "When I wake up, I feel like... something *happened* to me. In those places. Things I can't recall."
- Panel 4.
Dr. Angstrom, looking at his pad of paper as he talks, says "I'm *fascinated* by this selective amnesiac state that appears at times in Broodhollow's history." Zane, looking up at the ceiling, says "I would be too, Dr. Angstrom, if I could remember having it."
- Panel 5.
Dr. Angstrom, smiling, says "It's interesting -- other than this, you seem to be settling *well* into your new life here. You have friends. You run a modestly successful business."
- Panel 6.
Zane, still laying down with his hands over his stomach, looks annoyed as he says "Gosh, Doc, when you put it that way, I'd have a perfect life if I just stopped *going to sleep*. Is this your way of getting me on that Benzedrine stuff?"
