Transcript Edit

Panel 1

{Gabe and Tycho are sat next to two fans at a baseball game.}
Tycho: What the hell is up with ION Storm? These guys spend 900, 000 dollars a month just to disappoint me! Should I feel special?

Panel 2

{Tycho raises the wombat flag. Gabe raises his huge over-grown hand. Fans raise their hands.}
Tycho: You'd think that foosball tables, ritzy offices, and private THX qualified theaters would spur the design process!
Gabe: Well, they're pretty creative guys. They'll think of something.

Panel 3

{Scene change. Todd is behind a counter as two guys are in a queue.}
Todd: Hi, I'm Todd. Welcome to ION CinemaStorm. Ticket, please.
