Due to lack of time, I've decided to make my webcomic idea into a novel with illustrations. However, I wanted to post pages as I finish them just like I would a comic. I've been looking for a site that hosts novels the same way webcomic sites host comics but I'm not sure they exist or would even be popular. So my question is, if I posted my story on a webcomic site, would anyone even be interested? Or would people be more angry because it's not a webcomic? If you know of a site that hosts novels for free like a webcomic site, please share it. It would be a great help.
I don't think anybody would be angry if you put your novel on here, but because this is a webcomic site, people are expecting to read webcomics, not novels. Therefore, you might not get a whole lot of attention for your work.
As for novel/fiction hosting sites like ComicFury, here's some I found/remember.
I've considered doing this exact same thing ("serial fiction" is how I saw one person phrase it), though that was before I got sucked into the things I've recently been sucked into. It's still something I'd like to try (or perhaps see tried) once my current projects slow down a bit.
It's not that common but it can work if you have a good story and nice visuals.
I was originally going to make my comic into one of those, even had a narrator for a little bit but that sort of died off...
But yeah I've seen some comics do a few pages of text, maybe a small little picture on the side to draw the scene. I think if ya pace it right it could be very effective. It's not as popular since people tend to look at visuals rather than just reading but if you can get people hooked on your writing + art it could work. Just make sure there are no spelling errors or lack of grammar or anything cause that might put people off, haha.

Seems they prefer to self host and then join these communities to advertise, and I can sort of understand why. If you look at webcomic hosts they rarely survive forever. Here and Smackjeeves being the exceptions.

What's the word for it, Light Novel?
Yeah, pretty sure it is. To be honest, I've considered doing one as well, just as an experiment to see if I COULD. It sounded like a neat idea, and I am more of a writer than an artist when it comes down to it, though I never managed to pull it off.
It's perfectly fine, in my opinion, to host a Light Novel on a webcomic site, especially if you include an illustration on every page. In fact, I think it'd be neat to read. As far as I'm concerned, it'd still be a webcomic. It's on the web, and you're releasing comics, after all... :P
It's just that every comic page you release is just incredibly text heavy. :P
It'd be a nice change in pace from normal comics. Would it be as popular as a normal webcomic? Eh, probably not. Text-heavy things are somewhat hard to get in to. But would it have a place on here? I certainly think so, and you'd find your fair share of fans in doing so. Again, it's something you don't see that often, it's fairly unique, and that makes it interesting.
