It may be true that I did not explicitly mention any of the crucial data that would have created an informed comic strip BUT so much of communication is about the negative space and I'd think that as an artist or whatever you would understand that. Absence is presence. I heard that somewhere, and I knew it would annoy you.
For example: when I say "horse," what I intend is that you absorb a deep warren of meaning where my word-rats writhe and rut in the filthy dark. If you don't have the receptors for my, you know, nega-data, obviously that's going to be a problem going forward.
