I'm still puzzled by this one:

Quote from: Snarky
- Closed due to robbery. Now hiring!

Is this a panel on top of another one? What kind of people do they hire?

People not shot yet, was my morbid thought.

It's ambiguous, but I thought it would suggest that the former employees had either been killed, had quit because of the danger, or had perhaps been arrested as accomplices in the robbery.

I assumed the darkest route, as is usual for me, that there were positions vacant due to... erm... openings occurring in the previous staff roster...

In mid-sentence? You don't die in

There are no landmines left in

Ice guard wanted. Skinny applicants preferred.

Here are some ideas:


Her fillings were all that remained.

Reddening, he waited for his floor.

“Excuse me. Have you seen me?”

“Do it.”
“But.”
“NOW!”
“...”
“Thank you.”


These are always a fun exercise but I find it almost impossible to actually “tell” a story. The best you can really do is hint at the story and hope the reader fills in the blanks. This might involve having to create their own backstories and scenarios that could be vastly different from the author’s intended story. Which is great fun, but I wonder it’s possible to really tell a whole story in 6 words.
