    Crows and Climate Change

    Comic written and illustrated by Ryan Reid

    Panel 1: A gentle snow falls on a scenic country side. CROWS talk off panel.

    CROW 1

    You know that feeling you get when squirrels hide copious amounts of acorns in your tail feathers because you’re frozen to the ground and they’re still sore about that time you got them arrested in the park?

    CROW 2

    That’s strangely specific.

    Panel 2

    CROW 1

    Squirrels, not strangely, are jerks.

    CROW 2

    Pass me an acorn, I’m feeling peckish.

    Panel 3: Snow is getting deeper.

    CROW 1

    It’s snowing more than usual this year.

    CROW 2

    That’s climate change for you.

    Panel 4: Snow continues to fall. CROWS talk off panel.

    CROW 1

    Bah! Climate change isn’t real.

    CROW 2

    Not true.

    Panel 5: Snow is getting deeper.

    CROW 1

    Okay, maybe it’s real, but it’s natural.

    CROW 2

    Closer.

    Panel 6: Snow is piled high on the roof of a nearby house. It continues to fall. CROWS talk off panel.

    CROW 1

    Okay, humans have made it much worse, but there’s still nothing to worry about.

    CROW 2

    Almost there.

    Panel 7: Snow is falling relentlessly. CROWS are now complete buried in snow.

    CROW 1

    We’re all going to die.

    CROW 2

    You made it!

    Panel 8: Panel is completely white with snow. CROWS can not be seen, only heard, from beneath the snow.

    CROW 1

    We’re already dead, and all this snow is a construct of our dying brains easing us into the eternal void.

    CROW 2

    That would explain all the squirrels.
