So as some long time board members know, I've been talking about starting a web-comic for some years now but never get around to it because I end up disliking the idea right when I get it going.

Well all that's over as I present my web-comic; Rio Palillos: Devil Hunter For Hire.

See if the results of 7 years of trying to figure out what exactly I wanted to draw was worth it!

The premise definitely works and I like it that the comic doesn't take itself too seriously. Splattered zombie brains are always funny... I like what you've done so far but the real challenge to a webcomic is keeping a regular update schedule, so good luck to you. ;)

Nice work so far.

Having it hosted at DeviantArt can get a bit annoying for the viewer though - to read the text bubbles I had to click the image to see it full-sized, and repeat the process everytime I moved to the following page.
You might want to consider moving that to someplace like ComicGenesis.com, since they provide the whole webcomic-handling coding along with their free hosting for it.

I hope you manage to keep finding the inspiration, time and drive to keep it up now that you got it started.

I'm in the process of buliding a personal web-page to host it (as well as the rest of my portfolio) I just started it on DA since I needed a place to host my portfolio in addition to my comic.

THREE MORE PAGES!! This time safe for work and full of glorious text instead of pink censor bars.

So here's a serious question for y'all:
What's the best way to release a web-comic in this structure?
Does 3 pages a week so there's new material every week work or would the full 20-30 pages being uploaded as a block every 2 months or so be prefered so the whole story can be absorbed at once?

I'm gonna keep with the 3 pages a week schedule for Comic 0, I'd just like imput for the next one.

I still think a system like comicgenesis.com's would work fine, as the comic and pages relatd to it aren't the only thing they'll host, provided whatever you have in the site is yours.

http://www.comicgenesis.com/about.html

If you're hosting it on your own, then you can at least draw some inpiration from established navigation systems, namely by chapter, with the classic First, Previous, Next and Latest links, perhaps with a few extra ones for the latest 3 or so individually, in cse someone was away for the week and won't simply catch up from the latest page.
