Thanks for the feedback guys. I had a new comic idea, so instead of revising this one I thought I would apply your advice to the new strip.
I had a couple questions however:
1. To make the lines darker I am going to "ink" them, but I'm not sure what type of pen I should use. My first thought was just a black felt tip pen. What do you think?
2. Stupid question, but is adding "gutters" just including a space between the panels?

I don't know if I agree with "avoid making video game comics" as a valid 'criticism'. If the OP had come in here saying he/she was going to make a comic about video games and wanted to make money with it then sure, it would be a good point to bring up. However, I just see rh presenting one comic strip and the desire to improve.
Say I came in here with paintings of water lilies. Would you crit them by saying "you know that like, Monet is already super successful at the waterlily thing, right? Can you beat Monet?" Outside of a business standpoint, if video games are an aspect of this person's life, and he/she wants to draw comics about them, then I don't think it matters if other people also do that. This is a forum about improving and I'm pretty sure that the OP can improve, even by continuing to draw comics about video games.
(1) What's a good font for the text? How do I make the text more inviting? Should it be double-spaced or all capitals? etc.
(2) Can anyone recommend a good cartooning book? Aside from scribbling in the margins of my notebooks at school, I haven't had much experience drawing.
