Mouse Guard - Build a Better Mousetrap - J.D. Coughlan
I haven't read Mouse Guard, so these are all original characters.
Panel 1: Close up of a blueprint of a mousetrap, drawn on an old parchment.
WILDEYE (O.P.): This, my lord, is what will keep our settlement safe from invaders from other lands.
Panel 2: Wildeye holding up the blueprint, pointing to it. Wildeye has scruffy fur and, as his name suggests, wild eyes.
WILDEYE: You put some food in here, as a lure, then, when someone steps on this mechanism, the trap is sprung!
Panel 3: Wildeye's audience. A group of mouse nobles, looking very unimpressed.
LORD: So... they just walk into the trap?
Panel 4: Wildeye, looking a little sheepish.
WILDEYE: Um, yes.
Panel 5: The mouse nobles falling about in laughter.
Panel 6: Wildeye, humiliated, rolls up his blueprint.
SFX: (continued from previous panel) HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
