It’s been fun to deconstruct the screenplay of The 23rd Letter and present scenes out of order, and it’s been fantastic to see Patrick visualize and bring the words into pictures.
I don’t want to give away the ending, you’ll have to wait for the graphic novel and the film, but let’s just say it’s groundbreaking, and involves the whales, a volcano, and an earthquake, among other earth-shattering events!
Here are a few other scenes:
- A mysterious and possibly magical monkey frees Dexter from the ship’s hold where Shiyama’s cultists have imprisoned him.
- Dexter and Shiyama duke it out in the desert outside Jerusalem, in the midst of the war.
- Lola meets an old Turkish man who takes her into Israeli waters by piyade (a small boat).
I salute all the creative Thing a Day contributors!
