Storyboard Description

This short comic depicts a scene from the Outsiders, when the church is on fire. Dally, Ponyboy, and Johnny are at the Dairy Queen and he informs them with the latest news. Among the way back, when they are atop Jay Mountain, the church was on fire. Dally gets out of the car and asks what is going on when a man tells him that they were having a school picnic and then the place started to burn. Chaos within, a lady comes up and tells the news that children are missing and also probably still in the church. Ponyboy feeling the guilt because he thinks it is their fault, says he will rescue them and Johnny trails behind saying that the other person was to fat to come. The burning building continues to burn as they find kids and begin getting them out. Meanwhile, Dally says they better get out before it collapses. All the kids are out when the church collapses and Ponyboy jumps out with Johhny behind. AS he jumps out the window, Dally swears at him and clubs him, going down into a peaceful darkness.
