The expressed criticism is over the protagonist being passive, but I think the problem is that subsequent scenes have little connection. There is no discernable flow to the comics - no solid backbone to which all the ideas, places and characters can be attached to.

Granted, it is too early to tell much about the plot in general, but some narrative flow should be there already.

With active protagonists it is much easier to build that flow through their motivation and actions that follow. If we see the action through protagonist's perspective, but they are not the ones driving the plot, it is difficult to keep the coherence of the story. It can still be done: for example the focus could be on internal turmoil of the main character, but there has to be something solid connecting all the scenes.
