Well the unique hit count increased by one in the past few minutes, so I can only assume my blatant plug is working a little bit. However - whether or not it will translate to a +1 member count is another story for another day ^,^

I'm afraid to say I can't help there MadCat, I've done approximately no studying at all for my webcomic doodling. :|

Apologies, for some reason I think by default that the large majority of internet users are male persons without explicit entitelement to more prestigious titles (of which I know the male part is wrong BTW...) so I refer to everyone as a Sir. If you'd prefer Miss, Lady, Dr, Professor or some other title, please let me know.

Cheers Dee, I'm hoping I'll be able to keep it going this time, since my computer's now fully functional. No plans for a schedule yet, I may end up updating it every day or two depending if I can squeeze some crativity out of my brain.

Just Yino please, Sir makes me feel important, and important people does important stuff, and important stuff requires hard work and I´m not willing to do that.
And I´m sorry to disappoint you but I´m male.

I have a problem with my comic career...

I don't know how to set up panels, or to get that nice uniform comic sans stuff in those tinsy speech bubbles.

A few questions...

How does one set up panels for a comic?

How does one acquire one of those miraculous tablets unto which I may draw to my hearts content?

How does one get said comics out on the net?

Why is inking such a pain?

Do black and white (colorless) comics bore people?

How does one color a comic?

Where do I find Adobe Photoshop without having to pay $500?

How does a poor artist get all the tools needed for his cartoons?

Apologies if the number of questions are overwhelming, it's just that I'm new to web comic-ing and need some help.

Cheers!
:D

I'll let the artists handle the others.

You can create your own website, or submit it to existing sites (you know, like Direman Press) for publication.

It's not that black and white comics bore people; color comics simply have a better chance of exciting them. However, you can make up for it greater quantity (most successful black and white webcomics run M-F) or exceptional quality. If Bill Watterson (Calvin & Hobbes) showed up on the net today, that site would blow up, even if in black and white.

And welcome to the forums :)
