OK, Lee. Here goes.
Panel 1. The masked villian has just fired his gun. Fastman is running straight at us, one hand reaching out-- even as the mayor of Mill City recoils in fear.
MASKED VILLAIN: Goodbye, mister mayor!
Panel 2. Now, the masked villain recoils in fear. The trail of the bullet clearly flies from the gun to Fastman's speed-line covered fist, our hero having just made the save. The mayor is still recoiled, but there's a hint of a smile just started on his face.
Panel 1. Our hero is the smallest of ants pushing a very big pebble up a steep incline that to us is only a couple of inches, but to him? It's Everest on steroids... and he's not getting anywhere. The incline has finally gotten too steep.
ANT (thought): One more, last one, then the new place is finished... Dolly won't believe how far I had to go to get this one!
Panel 2. The reader's POV is pulled back a little, revealing our little ant has long since reached his goal on this incline-- but now he has a long white beard trailing beneath him and back down the mountain. Above him, an old lady ant-- our boy's Dolly-- is standing atop a big ant hill made of similar pebbles, surrounded by a whole colony of ants-- the kids and grandchildren.
ANT: Dolly! I'm home!
DOLLY: All that time you took-- and you forgot the milk, didn't you?
Panel 1. The starship Demeter is being pulled into a rift space-- our background a stellar system of six planets having just formed around a bright new star. We'll use gases and space dust around our stellar and planetary bodies to help suggest the dawning of this new star system.
CAP (CAPTAIN): "Look at it-- that's the most beautiful baby we're ever likely to see--"
CAP (ENSIGN): "Captain!! Rogue warp evveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeennnnntttt---"
Panel 2. The Demeter is EMERGING from the space rift. Now, our background is the same stellar system in it's death throes, as all six planets are being pulled into the collapse of the star into a black hole.
CAP( CAPTAIN): "Thhhhhisssssssss is not good!"
