Webcomic Tips



If you don't know how webcomics are different than your average manga then I shall explain.

First off, webcomics are generally colored while mangas are pretty much Black and White.  While there are some webcomics that are B&W, it's very rare but if you really want to go B&W then it isn't going to be the end of the world.
Another thing is that webcomics are meant to be read on phones or computers (compared to manga, comics, graphic novels being read in a book format) so they are optimized differently.  It uses infinite scrolling instead of page by page.  Often times the gutters (space in between panels) are huge so things don't seem as cluttered and you can use them to slow down a reader to get more suspense as they scroll to the next panel.  Another thing about the vertical scrolling is that you want to direct your reader ?down? instead of having panels ?side? by ?side? (unless the scene calls for it).
