So *you're* the one telling people to do that! D:

(You left out the ironic t-shirt, though.)

This is all very sound advice. I'll make one to add to it, but might not be able to upload it til I get back to Great Britain. I might be able to though, it is a possibility...

The wonders of modern technology. Basically, this comic page is exactly what you should do.



See how I used biro on lined paper, ignored rulers (they're no mainstream), made the characters identical except their hair, and asked readers to buy merchandise and donate on the very first page (with the promise of a further five pages I've said I've created but haven't really). However, I neglected to use incorrect grammar or spelling, for which i apologise; it was an oversight. Also the characters are talking about creating a webcomic themselves! How meta is that? Clearly they are interesting enough because they are playing on the conveniently labelled xbox.

jpcline, you forgot the essential piece of advice that you only post thumbnails of pages on the home page and then the reader can click on it for the full size thing. This was you can cram in even more adspace, by creating a page that basically consists of the comic page then a few adverts. And then if they want to see another page they have to click back on their prowse, go into the archive, and click each page individually to access it. That's what people want right?
