Yea, I honestly have no idea what is happening.

OK cool I'll tell you what is going on and then I'll need your advice to make it more obvious.

So in the first frame he is sweating from the sun's heat. In the next frame, he sees what he thinks is the mystic who sent him on the adventure in the first place.

But in the next frame, to his surprise, it's just a mirage. And a cactus.

He keeps on moving, but decides to just lie down in the hot desert sun.

It should be more obvious Droppy is in a desert and may see mirages. Transparency alone isn't enough to make the mirage look one. Add the effect air makes when it's over a hot surface.

What confused me the most was the transition between the last two panels. It looks like Droppy was knocked down for no reason.

Try using different perspectives to convey you ideas.

Ethan, maybe we could make it into game, using comics as cutscenes? I can help with coding.

There are no impossible things. There is only lack of skills.

I like it! No criticisms currently, although I am left to wonder why Droppy dies/'sleeps' at the end of every single comic?

Because I like having a filler for the last two frames of every comic.

1. Do you understand what's going on in the comic?
lol nope
It just looks like a random string of events.

EDIT: I get it with the narration
