Hello, I'm new here. Have a question.

I thought about trying it out when I get my web comics up and running. But was wondering if it's worth it base upon other people experiences?

For me, yes. They have paid more and have been lower maintenance than three other ad services I have tried.

My site does get a high number of page views per reader, though (about 20, currently), which I suspect has something to do with it.

I hated it. Project Wonderful is so much easier to manage and you get your money every day. Google makes you wait until you have X amount of dollars.

Im curious, how many page views do you think you should be averaging before you sign up with google adsense?

I was sorta under the impression that you would need a few thousand for it to be worth it? =(

$100 not an amount web comics make very quickly. (at least not mine)
I use adsense not for the income but for google analytics which I find interesting.
But I am not exactly "profit oriented"

Do you mean using the service to advertise, or putting ads on your site?

The former depends on how much money you're willing to put forth. I don't feel like it's worth it, but it's a personal choice. Ultimately the appeal of your comic will be what keeps readers, not how much you advertise.

Ad services usually pay by number of hits, if I understand correctly-- it's probably not worth putting ads on your site if you're just starting out, because your site won't earn enough to be worth the time.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
about a dollar a day. with av 405 visits a day.
too prominent placements of ads can also confuse and alienate readers.
