Battle Report: Escape from El Catrase - Turn 1

I can't quite put my finger on it. Either, whenever I do a battle report, I underestimate how much work it really is, or the entire planet is hell bent against me producing battle reports.

I suspect the latter.

Still, through no small amount of bravery, toil and triumph on my part, I am able to continue the story of The Escape from El-Catrase.

With pictures. Taking a queue from many other stories I like (very special mention to Airbornegrove26, whose inspirational use of Comic Life had me aching for more...), I elected to use Comic Life.

Contrary to what I expected, it was much harder to tell a story visually. Especially if you can't go back and set up the poses of the figures.

So, I'd be awfully interested in opinions of this approach. Better or worse than the written story?

Anyway, here's turn 1. The quality of the images (of the comic page, that is, not necessarily those within) is quite high, so I'd imagine they would be best viewed if you right-clicked on the image and opened them in a new page. Apologies - blogger doesn't have any really clever options here. I know I can set it up not to use the slide-show, but the corresponding lack of navigability is too frightful to consider.
