Presentation should be direct and not abstract

I think, when dealing with storytelling through pictures, one has to be very careful about if the story in understood by readers or not. Narration in graphic novels has to be very direct in order to convey the idea to readers. Too much of abstraction might confuse readers. For example, the illustration bellow has a story going on in it, but it’s very hard to tell where the story starts from and where it ends. The illustration misses hierarchy and links between scenes.
