The Foxes are Coming

I think is is my first attempt at sequential art, date unknown (but I'll ask my mum). You can make out the reused computer paper it was drawn on - the stuff that was all in one huge perforated concertina folded ream, with the printer sprocket holes down each side and gobbledegook printed on one side, which my dad would bring home from work every now and then.
I've broken the one rule that I insist on when I'm getting kids to create their own stories - no weapons and no death. You should see the faces on 90% of the boys just drop as all of a sudden they have to use their imaginations.

Nice fox drawings Jim! I love seeing these old comics of yours. No wonder you are so good... you've been at it for quite some time! ;)

Is he cooking them at the end? I can't quite figure it out.

I'm not entirely sure myself, but assume I was trying to draw a barbeque/ charcoal pit.
