Panel 1 – An all black panel that in white text reads, “Loving the Monster: Over the Garden Wall.” In the lower left corner there is a small illustration of a fish sitting in a tiny boat fishing.
Panel 2 – The second panel shows a frog with his back to the reader as he plays a piano. The text reads, “In 2014, Nov 3rd-7th, a strange mini-series set in a purgatorial forest aired on Cartoon Network. This is “Over the Garden Wall” where two half-brothers and a girl turned into a blue bird walk through the woods, trying to find their way home.”
Panel 3 – A landscape of farm fields. In the foreground is black tree and a man made from two pumpkins. He holds a flag. The text in the panel says, “Every Autumn, fans return to this show. We walk back into the unknown, tugging along our friends and family. It is a comfort, a habit, a ritual.”
Panel 4 -The silhouette of the characters Wirt and Gregory are at the center of this panel. They are facing an oncoming train. The text continues, “Maybe the beast beckons us. Or maybe, like the main trio, we all feel the fear and desire of going home.”
Connecting the two pages is a splash image of “The Beast,” a character from the show that is a solid dark shape with glowing white eyes and antlers that look like tree branches.
Panel 4 – “Over the Garden wall,” the sentence continues from the previous panel on the page. The illustration in this panel is of the “rock facts” rock from the show surrounded by leaves.
