  1. Nicely done.

    However the reading order of the panels is not clear. Since the bottom left panel is high enough to cross the bottom line of the top right (second) panel, one would think it itself is the second panel and not the third.

    Wonderful bright colors and an easy to read font. Now all you need is some material.
    “No more crazy.” Does the fox have a history of crazy behavior?
    The rat/opossum/hedgehog, did it jump or was it thrown?
