I want to say thanks to all who have contributed ideas to this post and to please continue doing so. I have already learned a lot!

Here is an outline of your contributions so far with a comment from me that is underlined.:

1) Lirvilas --> The Hero's Journey
Great, but over used by almost everybody, but still great because it is an ancient way to tell a story that is cross-cultural and therefore has mass appeal.

2) TheStrangerous --> There is no formula to success. It's all "butterfly effect"
I think what you are saying here is that it is a mixture of random luck and that everyone will always have a "market" for their own particular brand of story. I have to agree with your target market idea, but I do think there are tried and true proprietary formulas out there that really work, I just have to put in the hard work to develop one of my own!

3) Jeremy7 ---> It's a balancing act (multiple factors working in harmony)
Yes. definitely. You have to have the right combination of art, story, interesting characters, pacing, originality etc.

4) Thorsby ---> Awesome link to (Channel 101 Wiki - Story Structure)
I have to add that I love Trixie Slaughteraxe and I am a long time subscriber!
I think your art is simple, yet effective, and that is what makes it unique, kind of like how 8-bit graphics still work for a game-boy even today if the story is good, and your stories are some of the most complex and unique I have ever read!

5) Lt. Locust --> You need a good "HOOK"
Couldn't agree more. IMO every great comic has that one great and unique idea that really sucks you into its world and makes it interesting, like a magical chemistry.

6) Deo101 --> Pixar's basic story outline + make something you like (Delete, rewrite, re-outline, again and again and again until you are genuinely excited for everything you are putting out.)
Probably the most important thing any artist/ writer could do when making their comic is to simply make it something that they like. And your point about making sure every page and panel is interesting is also 100% correct. I would call that "Following your Heart".

7) CrosEL --> Do something you "feel"
I have to admit, the "feel" concept is something I am still discovering and that I find fascinating. I have come to realize that the main "hook" for a lot of comics and movies and anime that I read/ watch is mainly because of how they make me feel. I think crafting a comic with the intentional strategy of making people feel certain powerful emotions is pure genius and one of the hidden and most valuable story writing methods there is. Making people feel is something that I am definitely going to focus on in my future works.

Well, thanks again.
All great advice. I believe all of what you have said is necessary.
Keep it coming!

How is a Successful Popular Comic Written?

I am Interested in Various Basic Formulas for a Comic.

Plot Lines. Standard ideas for the Beginning, Middle, and Ending of a typical comic.
I am looking for pointers and resources that could help me. Books. Videos. Tutorials, but especially your opinion!
I'd like to know about your comic. How do you approach writing it? What inspires you? What makes a good comic good?
Thanks for your time!

I think that professional comic commenters like myself would love to have their awesome comments up-voted by other truly cool commentators (not to be confused with "common taters", or "Potato Heads") like myself. That way the most awesome commenters can be established by rank. Based on that stunning logic, this feature should be implemented immediately. Thank you. :)

UPDATE:
This is what I meant,
From "JammyTheBirb"

"I like the idea of a 'like' ability that doesn't change ordering and with no dislike button."


So absolutely NO dislike button! Only good vibes man!

Hmmm. Actually I just realized that I could go into the html section of my webcomic that contains the comments on the page I want to move, and then copy the html and save it in a word doc.
I could then delete my old comic strip and upload the image that used to be there to a new page. Finally, I could paste the old comments I copied into the comment area of that new page via its corresponding html location.
However! That is a lot of work!
Why not have a "check box" in the edit comic strips section that allows you to simply move an existing strip to the extra page of your choice?
I think that would be am awesome improvement to comicfury!!!

Hi.
If this feature already exists, then I apologize because I admit that I am not the most technologically savvy person around, or the brightest for that matter!
But, what I am thinking about is basically having the ability to go inside the "Edit strips" area of the "My Comics" part of comicfury, and be able to simply move an existing comic strip into a different "Extra page" without losing any of the comments that were made on that old comic strip.
Could this be done? And if so, is anybody else interested in being able to do this?
If it is already possible, then please explain to me how! (as simply as as you can please).
Thank you very much for reading!
Chris

Thanks for putting it into perspective folks. I am starting to feel better about it already. You all have made some great points, especially Steven.
I agree that it is time for me to start 'giving back' to my subscribers by posting some new updates.
Thanks for your replies. It means a lot.

I always try to comment on my favorite author's comics. To me a nice comment is the ultimate compliment and a great way to encourage them to keep posting.
I think our comics are a way of communicating with each other, so if we get no feedback, what is the point of even making the comic?
Feedback is absolutely necessary for an author, it is like water to a plant.

I recently lost a subscriber. I know, get over it right? But I am not one of those people who have hundreds of subscribers, and each one of my small band of subscribers are important to me.
Well, recently I had someone unsubscribe from my comic. I admit, I have not updated in a ridiculously long time, but, in my opinion it isn't necessary to unsubscribe from any comic, especially a slow updating one, since you can have an unlimited amount of subscriptions anyway and there is no pressure to unsubscribe from them. I still have subscriptions where after a year they finally update and I am thrilled.
On top of that, this person was someone who I thought was friendly with me so it makes it all the more confusing.
What are your thoughts?
Have you had a similar experience?

Heck if you don't mind simple kinda cartoonish art, I'll do it for $30 per page.
I say cartoonish, cause then i could finish it rapidly.

Atsuuikakura:
MatthewJA:Most webcomics I am aware of use Project Wonderful instead. It is far, far better, in my opinion.


Doesn't bring in as much money, but at least the people who make their policies seem to know what their doing so I use that.


I can see you are using project wonderful Atsuuikakura, but I can't yet because apparently you need 30 posts and I only have about 10 posts so far.
So I guess I need to start cranking out pages before I can sign up.

Thanks everybody for the responses and I apologize for the all caps title.
Plus I have decided to leave this thread up because I think the question was fairly innocent to begin with. I didn't mean to offend anybody with it.

Well I guess this was a pretty stupid question. Perhaps I should just close this thread?

Wow, I didn't realize we could put our own ads in. Does that mean I could put my own adsense ads in?

It could be like one of those revenue sharing sites like infobarrel, but instead of articles, our comics are the main draw.
So why not?

Hi.
Thanks for going through all the trouble to make this. It's very flattering to see someone else render one of my ideas. I waited a while to see what your version of Brock would look like and you did a great job! By the way, Brock is modeled after myself! The fan art thing was a great idea, and it's something that I may do myself one day. Very entertaining. I also look forward to more of your great comic alignment.
Cheers and have great day!!
