That's pretty damn fantastic, I'd say. If read from top to bottom, then the left column all becomes this build up to you bringing up the topic of the conversation in the top-middle panel. And then emotions run high [B3] and it's clear that you're thinking about this a lot[B2 and B4], and feel strongly about it. And finally, we get to the third column where you get to the actual meat of the topic.
Really, I think it works even better this way. It almost reads more like an actual segment of a speech about envy that you've performing in front of a crowd for. I'm glad I took another look at this one. Brilliant job, and a DD very well deserved!
