Welcome to Part 13 of “Document 13”, a dystopian graphic novel I’m creating with my daughter.

The year is 2074, the world has been plunged into darkness. One girl, Sarah Doe, will learn the secrets of the dark forces that run the ruined world. With the help of a few friends, her family, and her own powers she will fight to return the world to an order not known since well before her birth. Will she succeed? Read to find out!

If you haven’t read the other parts, go back and read them first!


*Interior of Bureau’s office. Bureau sits at a desk with his name on it, HM Matthews sits on the other side. The office is cluttered, with stacks of paper everywhere. Everything is dirty and dingy.*

Dr. Bureau: When you told me she had come back from apparent death, I had my suspicions. I’m glad you brought her here, because my suspicions have been confirmed. (in his thoughts: and she may have just bought me a ticket back to my old job!)

HM: Enough chit chat doctor, why didn’t she die? She’s been a pain for me but I can’t seem to kill her. Is there a way to finish her off?

Dr: Well, yes, technically, she can be burned or shredded. Or you could remove her head, that should remove her regeneration abilities….

HM: Regeneration abilities? What are you talking about? You and that old Party nonsense, your little project failed, remember?

Dr:… as I was saying you can kill her. But perhaps you may want to reconsider.

HM: I’d rather see her gone. She’s been nothing but trouble. You said burning? I have an incinerator which should do the trick…

Dr: Yes, but perhaps you’d give me the time to study her first….

HM: Why would I?

Dr: Uhhhh, maybe I can make it worth your while? (shit, I don’t know if this is transferable) let me study her and I’ll give you my results.

HM: Fine, you have a month. At least she’s out of my hair for awhile.
