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?
