yeah, i get it.
you are totally right. It is my first attempt to create a comic and with the position of the frames i am not quite experienced.
Give me more!
Glad it was of use to you :D I've been drawing comics for a pretty long time now (mostly as an amateur of course), but it's only recently I've started to (kind of) understand how framing works best. The best advice is of course to read a lot of comics and pay attention to the framing used, we tend to overlook that since we focus on the story and the images.
Anyway, about your second page, then..
I actually really like the first frame you made, the words go well with the character. I'm a little confused as to what the next frames are, though. Slight advice, you've only drawn people from the shoulder up in these frames. Try to work with full views and from-the-knees-up's, that'll give your reader a little breathingspace. For instance, I would have made the third frame a from the hips up, or maybe be even a full view. If you really want a close-up there, it's best to put the face higher in the frame. That counts for almost any close-up, really. It's how we view people: from the eyes down, that's what's most important. You can even leave a top of the head out of the frame.
I hope this wasn't a bore to read :D Sorry the post's this long. I also think my explanation was pretty clear, but just to actively show the difference:
