Trixie Tempus study (by Brian Rogers)
Trixie Tempus study (by Brian Rogers)

Some while back, I had been approached -- in what I think is a fairly atypical combination of factors -- by several aspiring artists, all looking to expand their portfolios or sharpen up skills; basically, a few different folks asked me if I had any scripts lying around they could use for practice.


Since I've basically only done corporate-owned work, I was reluctant to hand out, say, a Perfect Dark or Checkmate script, so I ended up writing a short (16 comic pages) sci-fi/adventure piece, specifically to hand out to artists.


It's probably the goofiest thing I've ever written, a wild and wooly action piece with a female protagonist: a woman from the 1930s, recruited into a temporal/cross-dimensional police agency. Her mission is to protect various timelines, but in reality, she's a fairly amoral piece of work, a sort of pulp sci-fi hybrid of Lara Croft and Rosie the Riveter, who rockets through the multiverse and runs guns, steals artwork, etc.


I adore her.


So, here's the script, released under a Creative Commons license. If you end up drawing the piece, please shoot me a copy, so I can post it up in here.
