One thing that will help, is don't make people guess that the comic you are asking about is in your art gallery.
As for some actual comic critique.
I don't really have much negative to say style wise, that is if you are going for the more simplistic South Park kind of feel.
One thing you might try is different angles for the speaker. It's not always necessary, heck most Garfield comics barely have any movement aside from a different facial expression or hand posture.
As far as ongoing comics and humor comics, while you can still do large story arcs that cover many pages like a graphic novel, it's also important to either have a punchline, or a mini arc in each page to keep the reader interested.
As for the best learning and reference type book I could possibly offer you... check out the creator of Zot! Scott McCloud's "Making Comics". It's probably the best book any comic artist of any genre can own.
Here is a posting if you want to order it, check your local library too.
