Halo - The Rookie - J.D. Coughlan
Panel 1: A team of Spartans exploring a derelict space vessel. There are four of them, weapons pointed in front of them, cautiously exploring. The rookie of the team, Bob-101, brings up the rear and his body language is more relaxed, not so professional as the others. The team leader, Owen-495, is in front.
BOB-101: When do we get to shoot stuff?
OWEN-495: Be quiet!
Panel 2: Owen-495 comes to a doorway and peers around it. Bob-101 can be seen a bit down the corridor behind him, peering up towards him/us. One of the other Spartans, Zack-200, is chastising Bob-101.
BOB-101: Is there something I need to press to reload, or--?
ZACK-200: You're supposed to be watching our six!
Panel 3: Two-shot of Bob-101 and Zack-200. Bob shrugs innocently, Zack is frustrated and looking forward, not at Bob.
BOB-101: Hey, I'm just asking.
ZACK-200: grumblegrumble Freakin' noobs...
Panel 4: Owen-495 and the other team member, Franklin-387, blasting their weapons through the doorway.
FRANKLIN-387: We're under attack!
OWEN-495: Fall back!
SFX: BLAM BLAM BLAM
Panel 5: The three experienced Spartans backing down the corridor, blasting at the off-panel enemy. Bob-101 remains nonchalant.
BOB-101: You know what, guys, I think I'm gonna quit, this seems too much for--
SFX: BLAM BLAM BLAM BLAM BLAM BLAM
Panel 6: Same, but Bob's head has been blown off by enemy fire. The other Spartans look round at him in surprise.

Bob-101 is basically me whenever I try and play video games.
