HOLMES INCORPERATED in

THE GREEN BLOODED MURDER

BY MARSHALL GEDDES

—————————————–PAGE ONE—–FIVE PANELS:

—————————————–PANEL ONE:

A close up of Edgar and Artie’s feet standing in a pool of Green blood. At the foot of the murdered woman’s wheel chair. With the title written in the pool of blood – “The Green Blooded murder”

CAPTION:

Artie’s Blog. April 22. Bellevue Hospital, New York City.

CAPTION:

Edgar and I had been assigned to investigate the murder of Ms. Margret Dubins, a ninety one year-old woman with a heart condition, the only intriguing thing about the case was her mysteriously green blood.

—————————————–PANEL TWO:

Close up on the large very bloody wounds of old Ms. Dubins.

CAPTION:

Hospital security footage showed a masked man enter the lobby and shoot a 458 Winchester Magnum three times.

CAPTION:

A very powerful gun for killing old ladies.

—————————————–PANEL THREE:

Camera pans up looking down on Edgar and Artie. They are in the lobby of Bellevue Hospital, standing over the body of a 91 year-old dead woman with 3 large gunshot wounds; one in her shoulder, one in her stomach and one directly in her heart. All of which are oozing green blood. Edgar is wearing a flamboyant trench coat and scarf. Artie sports his regular outfit with glasses and his backpack. There are a few NYPD officers standing idly around the crime scene and Dr.Czern a tall dignified doctor with big bushy eyebrows, large glasses, stark black hair and a perma-frown on his face.

CAPTION:

At the time of the murder Ms.Dubin’s chair was being wheeled by a doctor with whom Edgar attended medical School.  I knew of Dr.Czern from Edgar’s past, Czern graduated top of their class… I am not the first person to out-smart Edgar.

—————————————–PANEL FOUR:

Over the shoulder of the doctor looking down at Edgar and Artie’s faces, Edgar has a puzzled look on his face, Artie has a somewhat dazed look on his face.

DR.CZERN:

It’s been a few years Edgar…Nice outfit you’re wearing.

EDGAR:

On me… Of course it looks good.

—————————————–PANEL FIVE:

Over the shoulder shot of Edgar, Artie is looking at him. Two very eager police officers have just barged through the caution tape to demonstrate their competence to the sleuths. Edgar pays little attention to this.


NYPD OFFICER NO 1:

We won’t be needing you two anymore. Another officer just arrested the murder. Found him a few blocks over, matched the description perfectly and still had the gun on’im. Only problem is he’s yammerin’ some kinda gibberish.

 —————————————–PAGE TWO——SIX PANELS:

—————————————–PANEL ONE:

Medium action shot (wide panel) of the two cops, Edgar, Artie and the doctor. Over the shoulder shot of Edgar, he is facing us with his back to everyone else. He has his “thinking face” on.

DR.CZERN:

Well it seems someone has again beaten you to the mark Edgar. So if you have no further questions for me. I am needed by my other patients.

EDGAR:

One more thing Dr.Czern, then you can go. What medication was Ms.Dubins on?

—————————————–PANEL TWO:

The doctor is walking away from the crime scene turned toward us.  Edgar is investigating the corpse. Artie is looking at the doctor as he walks away.

DR.CHERN:

Angiotensin for her heart condition. Oh, and we had just performed blood work minutes before she was murdered.

EDGAR:

You can go.

 —————————————–PANEL THREE:

Up shot of Edgar on a knee investigating the body. There is a shadow across his face. Artie is standing above him scanning the body with his glasses.

EDGAR:

Examine her feet Artie.

—————————————–PANEL FOUR:

 Subjective shot looking through the X-RAY lenses of Artie’s glasses. At the feet of the old lady who has a normal amount of blood in her veins.

ARTIE:

All normal, no signs of ASR.

—————————————–PANEL FIVE:

Establishing shot of the police officers looking puzzled at Edgar

EDGAR:

 Just, as I presumed!

 EDGAR:

Officers, you merely have the shooter in custody, not the murder. This woman was already deceased before she was shot.

—————————————–PANEL  SIX:

Close up of Edgar as he reveals his thoughts. Over his shoulder is Artie is examining the corpse with his glasses.

EDGAR:

This woman was shot three times. If her heart was beating when she was first shot, her muscles would have tensed and undergone Acute Stress Reaction constricting the blood flow to the non essential muscles in her body.


EDGAR:

This, however, was not the case. Through the use of his X-Ray glasses, Artie is able to see that the victim’s body did not go into shock which is apparent from the blood in her appendages

EDGAR:

Concluding that the woman was dead prior to the shooting!

—————————————–PAGE THREE——FIVE PANELS:

—————————————–PANEL ONE:

Edgar is now standing with his arm raised and index finger pointing up.

EDGAR:

And Finally!

EDGAR:

The puncture wound was made by an eccentric needle, in which the needle tip is off-center in relation to the syringe. These needles are solely designed for injecting into veins rather than extracting blood!

—————————————–PANEL TWO:

 The police officers are looking at Edgar and Artie who are now standing side by side.

COP NO 2:

So she died from an injection?

EDGAR:

So it would seem!

COP NO 1:

So why would someone want to shoot a 91 year old dead woman in the middle of a hospital?

ARTIE:

Yeah, why not just do it the old fashioned way and snuff her out with a pillow?

—————————————–PANEL THREE:

Edgar is now walking down the hall towards the nurse’s station. Artie remains still. 

EDGAR:

The lobby was chosen as the staging ground to provide plenty of witnesses to the shooting.

ARTIE:

And the only possible way the shooter could have known Ms. Dubins would have been in the lobby at that moment is if he was in cahoots with Dr.Czern

EDGAR:

Absolutely Artie, and the name Czern is of Czech descent which explains the “gibberish”, AKA Slovak the shooter was speaking.

—————————————–PANEL FOUR:

Edgar and Artie are now storming down the hall.  Artie is turned toward a nurse.  Who is pointing to a stairwell.

ARTIE:

Did you see where Dr.Czern went?

NURSE:

He took the stairs.

 

 

 

—————————————–PANEL FIVE:

Edgar and Artie are facing us as they both storm towards the stairwell, to find the Doctor.

EDGAR:

Quickly, Artie. Time is fleeting as is Dr.Czern.

—————————————–PAGE FOUR—–SIX PANELS:

—————————————–PANEL ONE:

Edgar kicks open the door to the stairwell. 

EDGAR:

We mustn’t let him escape.

—————————————–PANEL TWO:

Above shot of Artie and Edgar running down the stairs. Artie is pointing down at Dr.Czern who is a few landings below them.

ARTIE:

There he is!

ARTIE:

This is going to be the perfect test case for my newest invention!

—————————————–PANEL THREE:

Edgar bursts through the ground level door, where we can see Dr.Czern running. Artie pulls out his spider gun.

—————————————–PANEL FOUR:

Artie fires the gun launching a spider web-like fluid at the doctor.

—————————————–PANEL FIVE:

The spider fluid from Artie’s gun turns into a net which knocks Dr.Czern to the ground and covers all but his face and hands.

ARTIE:

SICK!

—————————————–PANEL SIX:

Up shot from the view of Dr.Czern we can see his hands struggling to escape the webbing. Edgar and Artie are standing above him.

ARTE:

Why would you murder a 91 year old woman?

—————————————–PAGE FIVE—–EIGHT PANELS:

—————————————–PANEL ONE:

Subjective shot looking down on Dr.Czern.

EDGAR:

He didn’t murder her Artie.

DR.CZERN:

She died of natural causes, so I put her lifeless corps to good use.

—————————————–PANEL TWO:

Close up on Dr.Czern as he speaks.

DR.CZERN:

In medical school you graduated second to me Edgar… However, while you had your family’s name to carry you through life, my diligence got me no further than here.

 


—————————————–PANEL THREE:

Close up on Dr.Czern

DR.CZERN:

I felt it my duty to put your oh-so-trusted name to the test.

DR.CZERN:

Yet, it seems I have underestimated you this time.

—————————————–PANEL FOUR:

Close up profile of Edgar looking down at Dr.Czern.

DR.CZERN:

The world will one day appreciate that I am truly the most brilliant man on the planet and you are but a cluster of imitators leeching off the legacy of your ancestor’s name.  For generations to come my name will be remembered and your once-revered name will fade away.

—————————————–PANEL FIVE:

Artie laughs at the doctor as a police van arrives.

ARTIE:

Chill out man!

—————————————–PANEL SIX:

Artie and the police are loading Dr.Czern into the back of the squad van.

ARTIE:

Why the Green Blood? Why go to all this trouble to test us?

EDGAR:

He needed it to attract our attention.

—————————————–PANEL SEVEN:

The doctor is now sitting in the back of the squad van.

EDGAR:

He created the Green blood by exchanging the bonding agent in her blood from iron to copper. Thus, when her blood was exposed to the air it turned green rather than red.

DR.CZERN:

You see? She was a “nobody” and you only investigate the prestigious cases that “Daddy” assigns you Edgar. Rather than use your own moral compass to guide you. You depend on your father.

—————————————–PANEL EIGHT:

The screen of Artie’s computer.

CAPTION:

Artie’s Blog.

And that was how a hoax murder threatened the Holmes legacy. And even the best plans of Dr. Czern were coolly beaten by Edgar’s wit and my clever gadgets!

Of course I am the smartest man on the planet, Edgar’s deduction on this case would have impressed even our great ancestor.

Nicely done, Marshall! I salute you, sir! – Pinc
