Now, Roberts, let's try this again, starting from scratch, from left to right.
Not overview to specifics (the way too many comics writers end up writing stuff that isn't clear).
Then, as assigned, single image element, add an image, keep adding till there are five. Show each incarnation.
Add a balloon to the single image panel, then add another to the panel with two elements, etc.
Think of this as playing scales on the piano.
Show us each note...from left to right.
