...Or, it's a matter of perspective!
Just look at the PERSPECTIVE in this opening splash panel of a FOX AND CROW story in REAL SCREEN COMICS # 33 (DC Comics, December 1950)!
You're actually UP HIGH! Higher, even, than Crawford Crow - looking down on both him and the visitor still further below, from a tree-tops view!
The angle on Fauntleroy Fox's HOUSE (at left) really sells it!
That's something you didn't see every day, especially in a "funny-animal" comic! I'm a writer, not an artist, so I really can't properly explain it any better than this - but, WOW!
Kudos to artist Jim Davis for taking what should have merely been "ordinary", and making it "extraordinary"!
But, that's not all in the "extraordinary" department, as REAL SCREEN COMICS # 33 is also home to an amazing META story, in which Fox and Crow squabble over "Top Billing", resulting in Fauntleroy Fox LEAVING THE FEATURE, and being replaced by a "Fox Hound"!
But the "magnificence of THIS meta" is hardly limited to just concept, but dives deep into the VISUALS as well!
Cast your eyes upon what appears to be a WOODEN PLANK, suspended across, and somehow attached-to, the top of the splash panel - bearing their billing and names!
And, as seen below, it's REALLY HANGING THERE, to the extent that Crawford can PROP A LADDER AGAINST IT, and start ripping-down its lettering!
Why, there's even more of that great "Jim Davis Perspective" in the above illustration's lower-left panel! ...That thing's just really up in the air!
THE FOX AND THE CROW, and its related series, are known for incorporating more meta-antics into their stories than the conventional-by-contrast Disney comics and other contemporary comics from Dell - but this one really deserves a prize for sheer audacity!
While you all ponder that, I'm going to step out my front door... and if I look up and see a huge wooden sign, across the sky directly above, that says "JOE AND ESTHER" - you'll never hear from me again!
...Either because I DIED OF SHOCK right there on the spot, or Esther wanted "Top Billing", and replaced me with a dog!
