I feel like the latter half of this series had just a bit too much going on. The 
explanation for what was happening with the buffaloes didn't really feel like 
enough, even by Silver Age standards, and the last strip doesn't have the space 
to properly finish off. Overall, while the comic strip format usually works 
quite well with your storytelling style, here, I feel like we could've used a 
bit more room.

That said - I think the space restraints actually really help that last panel. 
It's eerily effective, and all the more so for just being this stark image, so 
different in style from the rest of the primary-colored strip.
