You can probably achieve a plaid effect using multiple layers and blending. The darker squares are where crossing bands of color would intersect.

TLDR: Words on blank space = a low-quality Post-Secret or DA macro. FIREOMGWTFBBQ = drama and action. First impressions are important, do you really want this to be the way you introduce readers to the world?

Orphaned words and sentences in literature are poor attempts at being profound. The same holds true for comics, perhaps even moreso since they are a more visual medium. Every element on the page fights with everything else for space and attention, be they text, visuals, or even the panel layout itself.

Again, comics (manga, if you prefer) being a visual medium it is of utmost importance to use visuals to communicate ideas and feelings alongside words. A city on fire is a dramatic, high-impact scene that should be front and center. You could even reduce the words to a very small element within this desolate scene to illustrate the isolation of the person speaking or thinking them.

Compare it to pleas for charity. You can simply say "children are starving in Sudan", almost dismissively, like a factoid or afterthought in a magazine article. There is far more impact in showing a picture of a starving child, if less context (who is this child and where are they that they must suffer like this?). Combined, they form a complete message and motivation for the viewer.

I implore you to return to the drawing board to craft a more dramatic first page, not just in narrative appeal but also one that better showcases your own personal style and interests. The first pages set a tone for entering the rest of the story; you certainly wouldn't want to give the wrong impression if you introduced yourself!
