Here's a page of script from '76 #3, along with Ed's finished art:
Panel 1. Sam isn’t all that into the
conversation as it goes on. She’s got Gino’s bagel.
Yeah, I know. Wops don’t like working for niggers. And Nicky ain’t crazy about smack.
Panel 2. Sam shrugs. Gino pleads.
So what do you want me to do?
Watch me, Sam.
Watch you? You want me to be a bodyguard for you? Seriously?
There’s more to it than that. It ain’t just Gil who’s back.
Panel 4. Sam takes a bite of the bagel.
Spill it, Gino. Why should I care about any of this bullshit?
Panel 5. Gino, leaning forward, pleading. If we can see Sam, she’s clearly surprised by this news.
Sam—Jackie’s back. He rumbled with the Sabakis just this afternoon. And Marcus was with him. I can’t get mixed up in all this, Sam. You gotta help me—
Panel 6. Sam settles back in her seat, arms crossed, now oblivious to Gino’s rambling. She has a slight smile on her face.
Well, well, well. Karma and King. Shit, Gino--
--It’s about time we had some excitement around here.
