Something I didn't give a lot of care to in earlier OP strips was the placement of the words. I made sure they fit into the panel, but didn't consider the journey of the eye. The last 2 panels here are particularly jarring for the reader, asking them to move from the bottom of panel 8 to the tippy top of panel 9. If I redid this I'd probably have Hanna on the bottom of panel 8, to follow the action of the previous panel and leave space on top for the text.

Love her expression in panel 7.
I like it the way it was. The crunch is under her, where it belongs.
I didn't really mind here. It kind of had an effect of legit wonder after hearing something at the bottom crunch. Badum tss
I personally like the sound effect box at the bottom of panel 8, like her butt is CRUNCHing right into the sound, but I see what you mean about the readability.
I mean, imo, the text placement being jarring works here, because the actual action is jarring. Disorientation due to layout can be a useful tool.
