Ever heard of Fox-Orion? He does some pretty good stuff, and recently let out two new tutorials on composition and lighting!

I believe he is asking about comic page composition, not drawing composition.

I don't use tutorials, so I have none to give you. If you want to learn how to narrate a story with images do the following:
-Watch movies and see how the story is narrated.
-Read comic books of different authors with different styles.
-Practice: "draw don't tell", which mean, narrate a story without dialogue, just image and have to be understandable.

You will notice a lot of different ways to narrate a story, some like taking some characters out of the boxes, and others like giving edges to the boxes. There are million of ways to narrate through images, but you need to think always how much space per page you have, because this can change completely the composition.
