It really boils down to as to why you are creating your work. Webcomics, as a rule, are really for hobbyist. Most of us will never make a penny from what we do on the web, and most of us, are ok with that.
If you are looking to turn your art into a source of income, printing is presumably the ideal way to go. If you are printing your comic to make a buck, be ready to spend some money, invest a TON of time trying to sling your work and hope to find a following.
I personally make my comic for myself, much like Mr. Plymayer, I feel compelled to draw a tell a story. Will I ever print my work? eh, maybe, but not for money, simply to have a hard copy of something I have put so much time and effort into.
Also, Plymayer, I am a fan of your work, and I appreciate what you do!
Years ago, 2008ish, there was a webcomic called A Large Panda. It was crudely drawn but completely insane as far as writing goes. It was about a Large Panda who, for whatever reason, was the arch nemesis to Al Gore. I followed the comic for years until one day, it just disappeared. Real shame.
I do everything digitally, so the most frustrating thing for me...power surges. Such as last night, forgot to save before calling it a night, woke up to a restarted PC; heard the boy George song, Do You Really Want to Hurt Me, play in my head.
Found Comic Fury shortly after Drunk Duck went nuts. Haven't shopped around for another host since, quite happy here.
Also, the whole JPEG and PNG debate, my understanding is that JPEG compression can lead to 'artifacts' in your artwork ( artifacts being wrong colored, misshaped pix-elation). PNG does not suffer from this issue. Not 100% on it, but since switching to PNG, I haven't had any pixel issues.
At this point, I'm really just creating a story that I want to see. When I first started my comic, I was obsessive with subscriptions and hits, not sure why, just a numbers person I guess.
I stopped for a few months, burned out, and now that I've returned, I'm really just drawing for me. Don't get me wrong, I am flattered by any and all comments/subscriptions, however they are no longer whats pushing me.
Kevin Zombie - An interesting take on the whole Zombie thing. I love the artwork, its not horribly technical, but unique no less. The story is interesting and the artist really seems to be enjoying it.
Peg warmers - An older comic, but funny none the less. its a photo/action figure comic based around Marvel/DC characters with random Nerdtastic characters thrown in. I'm a huge Marvel fan, so maybe my liking this one is a bit bias.
Sleazy Space Saga - For those of you 18+ who enjoy an adult themed comic, check this one out. The artwork is great and the word play and dialog is so out there, whats not to like? Warning, this one is an ADULT comic, every red flag Comic fury has to offer is attached to this one. None the less, very much worth checking out.
Doomsday. Since a child, I've never liked superman. It may have alot to do with the Show Louis and Clark. Growing up, My grandmother would watch that crap all-the-freaking-time! I hated it, so when I saw the death of superman comics, I was in love!
I'm trying to teach myself simple animation using Flash to put together a quick animated short this year for Halloween.
My Comic is story based, however, with the types of characters I have running around in this mess, it would be crazy NOT to do a Holiday thing this year.
I've gotten an odd troll or two over the years. If the comment was not directly related to the material, I simply deleted it. If the comment was related to the strip, and even if it was a completely ass-hat comment, I left it and poked fun at the poster.
I've been lucky with my recent comic tho, even with the out there content, I haven't run into any trolls...yet. But hey, even troll page views are page views!
