If you think your comic is starting to suck after four pages, I'd call it a case of ‘I dind’t plan this enough before I started'. When you start a comic, make sure you know where you're going, the kind of jokes you want to tell, and who your characters are. You shouldn't be running out of jokes after a few pages. Try to think about what's funny about your characters, and/or Mortal Kombat in general. Any joke that you actually need to explain outside the comic like the furuba one is a joke that hasn't worked very well.

Secondly, try to bring up the art standards. The MK sprites look cool, so do them justice by making proper guttering around your cels in either plain black or white with a black border, and do some nicer looking speech bubbles, simple white ones with black borders around the outside and a tail that actually connects to the bubble would look good. Get a decent graphics program to work with like Photoshop, GIMP etc. that will allow you to do better effects more suited to the realistic style sprites of MK.

I'd actually suggest possibly finding other sprites to use instead of Mortal Kombat sprites as they have the disadvantage of being very difficult to display facial expressions… and they're even harder to write for… AND you end up being forced to only use background from Mortal Kombat if you're trying to match backgrounds.
99% of people would've finished this sente
