Not a new favorite page but I was very tempted.
I like this comic better and better.

My hope is that I’m getting better and better. ;)
That said, I’m not a huge fan of this page myself. It’s okay, but like the previous page, I think it’s a little too text heavy.
Generally, my feeling is that it’s always better to show than tell. When I publish a text heavy page, such as this one, I feel as if I’ve done something wrong.

Oh I agree to that!
There is a little more text than optimal but sometimes the story requires such a page. Hmmm... I'm imagining to split the speeches up some more and distribute it over more panels, so some of this would have ended up on the next page. Depends on what will be on the next page. But rather not, methinks.

My other objective is to try to keep the number of comic pages to a minimum. More pages = more rendering, which means more work.
I don't think it would have been possible to spread the text here over multiple pages. But, with some more editing, I probably could have shaved a few more words off.
Between this, and page 5 (the previous text heavy page), I actually think this one does a better job balancing the text.

(I think a few words more wouldn't hurt in any way. A whole bubble of 2 sentences or more, that might be something else. But this here is still well within my "comfort zone". And nobody else has complained yet :p)

Lettering matters too (which I think I’m improving at).
Before starting this comic, I had never really thought about lettering before, but it makes a huge difference (and isn’t as easy as it looks to do well).
Poor lettering can make a small amount of text feel like a slog, whereas good lettering can elevate poor and overly wordy prose.

Now that you mentioned the lettering and re-considering this page, I noticed that there is quite some room around the text, i.o.w. the bubble could have been smaller. Just saying. Somehow I didn't notice it before but now I can't unsee it :D

That's mostly my own preference.
I find it easier to read if there's a good amount padding between the text and the edge of bubble.
