Detectives Inc.
A Terror of Dying Dreams
(An excerpt from the comic book)

by Don McGregor

Thrilling Detective is really pleased to present something a little different.
But first, a little background...

Back in 1985, Don McGregor had a vision for a private eye film, about his racially-mixed team of tough New York eyes, based on characters he had originally created for the highly-claimed graphic novel A Remembrance of Threatening Green. He had a script and everything, for what was "primarily a presentation piece," but you know what they say about the best laid plans of mice and men and McGregors...

Undaunted, Don turned around and reworked the film script, transforming it into the second graphic novel, A Terror of Dying Dreams, featuring private eyes Ted Denning & Bob Rainier , collectively known as Detectives Inc.

Now, for the first time, Thrilling Detective is pleased to present a glimpse at not only Don's original film script, but also the original comic script for the same scene (both reproduced here, warts'n'all), as well as the actual comic book page that was the ultimate result, as rendered by comics legend Gene Colan.
