I hope this layout works. Because I use Manga Studio, the layouts are actually designed to read right to left. So, on a page like this its a little tricky. In the future I will turn them around if its at all ambiguous. Still learning.

Some comics, mainly European comics, use this layoout with two panels on the right side of the page. Some people don't like it, but, man... I think those people freak out for nothing. If we read from the left to the right and from top to down, it's pretty intuitive everything piled goes from top to bottom.
Kick the purists butts XD

Love the use of that lineart in the last panel!

The one issue I have with a layout like this is that when I'm scrolled at the top of the page, I see the top half of panel 5 before I see any of panel 4. But once I can see the whole page, it reads fine.

So in the future, I guess try to keep the long panels like panel 5 at the top of the page to avoid that issue? But it's not really that big of a deal.

The reason I didn't flip the page is because right before you execute that command, it tells you that you'll lose all the guides for printing. Not knowing whether or not I would need them I thought, better not, just incase. But maybe it doesn't really matter.

I like the use of the mid-flip sketch to illustrate the maneuver.
