One Page Thrillers (mostly)

A strip from The Victor

See The Victor .

Writer:- The Victor editorial team. Artist:- Jim Bleach (mainly); Ted Rawlings; Alonso.

Main cast:- none. This is an anthology series of quick fire stories.

Time periods:- various.

The following one page thrillers are from issues 1288; 1303; 1307; 1335; 1337; 1342; 1349; 1389; 1398; 1402; 1393; 1397 & 1425.

Writing any story is a challenge, but to write a one page story in eight of nine panels is a real challenge. The writer needs to introduce the few characters, quickly, create a situation and resolve it with preferably a twist at the end. The artist meanwhile, has to make the story visually entertaining. Quite a tall order and as mentioned at the beginning, a challenge. And the majority of the stories below don't disappoint.

And finally one of my favourite complete short stories from The Victor, issue 1425. The script is a bit stilted in places, but you get the idea.
