    Robot Solves the Water Crisis

    Comic written and illustrated by Ryan Reid

    Panel 1: ROBOT is showing his INVENTION to FRANCIS.

    ROBOT

    Good news, Francis! I solved the water crisis!

    Panel 2: Close up of ROBOT and his INVENTION. Sound effect: CLICK!

    ROBOT (sincerely)

    This device will open a tiny fissure in space-time, allowing the abundant fresh water from pre-history to flow into the now! Watch this!

    Panel 3: A gigantic pre-historic WHALE-like creature appears out of nowhere, with a moist POP! sound. ROBOT and FRANCIS are startled.

    Panel 4: Close crop on the eye of the WHALE. ROBOT and FRANCIS lean in off panel.

    ROBOT (angry)

    Oh, great! Another special interest blocking scientific progress!

    Panel 5: ROBOT and FRANCIS walking away from the WHALE. ROBOT tosses his INVENTION away.

    ROBOT

    Seriously, Francis – if I knew it would be hard I never would’ve bothered.

    Crows and the Mosaic-Tailed Rat

    Comic written and illustrated by Ryan Reid

    Panel 1: CROWS landing on GARBAGE BAG.

    Panel 2: CROWS digging into GARBAGE BAG, and having a nice lunch.

    Panel 3: CROWS, still on GARBAGE BAG. CROW 1 has a thought.

    CROW 1

    You know who we haven’t heard from in a while? That Mosaic-Tailed Rat.

    Panel 4: Close up on MOSAIC-TAILED RAT wearing a lovely BOWLER HAT.

    CROW 1 (voice over)

    He wears the best hats.

    Panel 5: Close up on CROWS.

    CROW 2

    Oh yeah. He’s dead. Actually, his entire species is extinct.

    CROW 1

    What?! How?

    Panel 6: Close up on CROW 2.

    CROW 2

    Climate change, primarily. Rising seas destroyed their habitat, and killed all the rats.

    Panel 7: Panel frames CROW 1, who considers CROW 2’s words.

    CROW 1

    Huh.

    Panel 8: Reverse silhouette of CROWS on GARBAGE BAG. CROW 1 still in thought.

    Panel 9: GARBAGE BAG is obliterated. CROWS stand where the GARBAGE BAG once was.

    CROW 1

    So, what happened to all his hats?
