I love the minimalist second panel. I could live with the whole strip being that way.

These calligraphic interludes are always lovely and poignant. However for this one, I would like to add a very small note of constructive criticism.

I would have liked to have seen the leaf above the stack of books falling from frame to frame, until coming to rest in the final one. I realize that this is normally like a snapshot that incrementally evolves into the character(s), without any frame to frame motion, but I think the added motion might have benefited this one.

This isn't nitpicking. The artist pays such great attention to detail, that I think that this is the sort of thing that he would consider; of course, he may have done so, and then rejected the idea.

The leaf is part of the hanzi/kanj character in the last frame. If it fell further...
