I can understand the underlying joke in it, and it's pretty funny when I think about it, yet I believe the execution is pretty poor, especially since you have a lot of talent.
I'm just going to believe that you simply had little time to churn this out, but I'm going to put out some points on what I see is wrong with this particular comic:

1. The Copy/Paste is really, really bad. With the cat Boggart, it's fine, however with the Siamese, it's horrible. Especially in panels 1,2, and 3.
Panel one could've been fixed had you of redrawn the head craning to it's right a little bit to show that it's actually looking at Boggart(that is the name of the comic cat right?) At this pose, not only does it look stiff, but also, because of the way it's body is positioned and because of the way you placed the pupils of the Siamese cat, it looks like the Siamese is looking at something behind Bogart as opposed to Bogart itself. This is the same issue I see with panel 3.

2. While most of the problems with panel three are already stated in the first point, there is also the problem with the pose you chose and inconsistency from the previous panel. With the inconsistency, it's the fact that the fly appeared in the second panel, and then it's not there in the third panel. If the point was that the fly had moved off screen in the third panel, then the pose and attention of the Siamese cat must be changed in order for the third panel to work. First off if the fly went off screen, then the Siamese should be in a pose showing some interest in the bug.(Based on the second panel it's clear that the bug caught the cat's attention.) Since the point of the comic is that the Siamese has ignored Boggart for the fly the third panel was an excellent way in showing that. As for the eye contact-the cat can either be looking at the general direction of the bug off screen or looking back at Boggart, with it's head craned back a little in Boggart's direction, yet it's body clearly interested in moving in the bugs direction.

3. Emotions can speak volumes in a comic, and add life and vibrancy to even the most simplest of art. However with this comic, the Siamese and Boggart have the same static expression throughout the entire piece. For Boggart it's clear that he's trying to ask out the Siamese cat. His expression in the first panel is alright. However the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th panels should be different to match the situation developing in the comic. For the 2nd and 3rd panel, Boggart should be becoming more and more flustered/embarrassed at the situation. After all, he is asking for her number. In the last panel he should have a dejected look on his face. Seeing as how the bug took all the interest the Siamese had in Boggart in the first place. Instead, he just has the expression of not really caring at all.

4. It's a small issue, but I really see no point in the thought bubble in the last panel. Partly because Boggart said everything else out loud and also because of the same face expression he has throughout the entire thing. Had he of had a more dejected look, then the thought bubble would've been more appropriate. Also I don't know why you couldn't of moved it a little to the right. At the position it's currently at, it looks squished in there.

I guess it's nice to have some critique available, but personally I think you're missing the actual character in these comics. I mean...

"because of the way it's body is positioned and because of the way you placed the pupils of the Siamese cat, it looks like the Siamese is looking at something behind Bogart as opposed to Bogart itself."
-Maybe the other one doesn't care to look at Boggart? It's about character you know. Though this is the point I agree the most, as a random bystander.

"With the inconsistency, it's the fact that the fly appeared in the second panel, and then it's not there in the third panel."
-You do realize, the fly was not the main focus here, and therefore it's up to creator what to do with the fly?

"Boggart should be becoming more and more flustered/embarrassed at the situation."
-Why should he? And before you answer: The fact that something common is missing doesn't mean it's necessarily an accidental slip.
Sure it would add some drama. Donald Duck has drama. Yea...

"... but I really see no point in the thought bubble in the last panel."
-What is the point in seeing a point in a serie there is not much point in? Why should there be one in order to be "correct"? Maybe he wanted to say okay?

Please don't get me wrong, I don't want you to stop giving critiques. It's just that to me your post seemed to be telling "You're doing it wrong here, although only a bit and you can get over it by doing as I say" when it's as a fact not the matter of doing something wrong, or even flawedly(is that a word?), but about doing it differently than usually..

Surely I might be wrong and *Apofiss just isn't that good with comics yet, and he is to be bashed against the boundaries of common regularities of comic drawing when he grows up to be a real illustrator and in fact he might even be saying that to himself when people say "Hey you should be utilizing different expressions right here" and feel bad about his life and think his stuff sucks and the events he has thought of as milestones in his life don't really mean anything, even though the whole dA community is watching him and he's currently getting name and heading towards the might and magic of modern reputation of being an artist, but you know: that's only a small slice of people and can't probably be right. Yes, they must be like fly's sniffing a pile of dump with no sense of art. Uh oh... no? Got my point? Good. Had a laugh? I Hope so.

> In the second, third, and fourth panel, it's clear that the cat is more interested in the bug more than Boggart himself. I did say however, that the Siamese doesn't necessarily HAVE to look at the cat, but copy/pasting a pose wouldn't make that work.

>The fly is the semi-main focus for it is the object in the comic that is taking the attention of the Siamese cat away from Boggart. Therefore it is important to keep some semblance of consistency with it.
If it was something as unimportant as a flower or bird in the background, then it wouldn't be an issue.

>Boggart is attempting to ask a pretty Siamese cat for her number. Just by the dialogue alone you can get a sense that Boggart is getting slightly embarrassed that he's being ignored for a fly. Adding emotions to reflect that is not creating drama. It's just adding to the context of the situation. I highly doubt that Boggart being expressionless was done on purpose, and more or less a side effect of copy/pasting the same thing in each panel with minor differences. In order for that to work, Apofiss would've had to establish some sort of character trait inside Boggart throughout the comic series, which seeing as how it's just a daily life comic like StupidFox, he probably hasn't. Aside for his love of tea.

> Dialogue isn't a plot point. It's there to help convey the plot of the comic. If dialogue wasn't an important part of this series, then Boggart wouldn't have any dialogue in any of it's comics at all. With that being said placement, and importance is equally important.
Boggart wasn't saying 'Okay' in the last panel. He was thinking that word. Hence why I asked why he made it a thought bubble in the first place, when Boggart vocalized all of his thoughts beforehand.
I think you misread that critique.

It's just that to me your post seemed to be telling "You're doing it wrong here, although only a bit and you can get over it by doing as I say"
The point of a critique is to tell someone what they did wrong in a piece, and to tell them how they could've done it better. This is not me or anyone else giving him critique telling him how to do it their way.
My critique was how he could've executed the comic better, without the copy/paste mess it was. As I've already stated at the beginning of my post, I gave him the benefit of the doubt that he probably didn't have as much time as he usually did to make this comic. Seeing as how his previous comics weren't like this one. Sorry but copy/paste isn't unique.

"Surely I might be wrong and *Apofiss just isn't that good with comics yet, and he is to be bashed against the boundaries of common regularities of comic drawing when he grows up to be a real illustrator and in fact he might even be saying that to himself when people say "Hey you should be utilizing different expressions right here" and feel bad about his life and think his stuff sucks and the events he has thought of as milestones in his life don't really mean anything, even though the whole dA community is watching him and he's currently getting name and heading towards the might and magic of modern reputation of being an artist, but you know: that's only a small slice of people and can't probably be right. Yes, they must be like fly's sniffing a pile of dump with no sense of art. Uh oh... no? Got my point? Good. Had a laugh? I Hope so."
Umm...what? Actually Apofiss has replied to my comment, and thanked me for the advice that I gave him. He told me himself that he wasn't good with comics, but that every piece of advice helps him get better. How is Apofiss going to improve, if no one tells him what to improve on? You are not Apofiss. You cannot tell me how or what he feels when someone gives him a critique on his works. I wasn't 'bashing' him on anything. I wasn't disrespectful towards him nor did I call his art anything negative that would make him think as such.
This man is a full grown professional artist, who more than likely graduated from an art school where getting your work torn apart on a daily basis is the norm.
This guy has had his artwork published in many forms, created calenders, phone wallpaper backgrounds etc.
How can you tell me, that this one comment, meant to be helpful towards the artist bring him down to a pit of despair? How can this one comment debunk every single success and accomplishment he has ever reached in his art career? How can this make him feel useless? Are you Apofiss? Do you know the guy? Are you best friends with him? Does he tell you his deep personal feelings that no one else knows about? If the answer is no, then what you said right here is more than likely how YOU would feel if someone gave you a critique. You are not Apofiss's mouthpiece, and unless the man said it himself, you have no grounds to say anything like that on Apofiss's part.
Apofiss might be wildly popular on DA, however I highly doubt that this is his whole world.
You tell me that you don't want me to stop giving out critiques, yet at the same time give off the impression that I am nothing but a nitpicker who has nothing better to do, and telling other people that their tastes in comics are wrong.
That to me is what I see as the point your getting across.
No, I did not find this funny at all.

That is still something we don't know unless yo ask Apofiss personally, which in that case, you cannot really use in an argument against anyone.
