So I'm working on the script for my fantasy comic Drachenseele and I realized I have three pretty good ideas for how the prologue of the story because all three of them work well explaining different large parts of the world and setting things up for the story to come. So I'm not quite sure which one to go with.
Starting off with the typical "Ancient fantasy war" prologue, except showing a scene from it that sets up some of the main characters as opposed to just the general "Okay,so here's how the Demon King Lost his Pants thanks Timmy Good Guy, acclaimed Attorney of the Goddess of Light" type of prologue like in most fantasy stories if that makes sense. One of the reasons this works is that it does help set up some important parts of the world and plot and considering that Chapter 1 opens up with the main (and conveniently amnesiac) protagonist waking up to start her day, can help foreshadow what her true identity was and that she was probably dreaming those lost memories. (Think kinda like the opening to the anime Planet With if you've ever seen that show.)
Opening with the main villain faction of Royal Crimson ransacking a Tarako village and burning it looking for a lead on the artifact they need to start their plans before rallying their troops that the day of their uprising has finally come and they found the main town they were looking for and are heading there next. Setting up their eventual attack on the protagonist' town that kickstarts the plot.
Opening with a monster attack/natural disaster in a village where we see the protagonists' group arrive to fight it off to establish who they are, what's going on, and what the protagonists' place in the world is.
Each option has their pros and cons regarding the story, so I'm kinda split between which one would be the best to go with for my comic. Which one do you think sounds the strongest?
Thanks for the help and feedback.
