Hello, everyone,

I'm JW's Dad and webmaster. JW's created three comics, Quest, Amazing adventures, and Assimilates. The latter two are updated monthly, on the first and fifteenth. I'm most curious about what you think of the last archive of amazing adventures - do you like the panoramic view, or should I just keep it a pdf?

Please stop by and let JW know what you think.

Thanks,

JW's biggest fan

Sorry, I did not realize that apostrophes were such a problem. I'll refrain in the future.

Since each page has multiple panels, it's probably better to prevent people from easily seeing all pages at once. Helps pacing and prevents accidentally looking ahead.

Also, many web users are confused by horizontal scrolling, and many web browsers will shrink the image to the width of the screen.

An html page with each page under the previous page would be a workable solution, in addition to pdfs, which some people avoid.

Thanks, Meow. I think what I really need to figure out is what format publishers would prefer, since eventually I'll be creating paper comics and trade paperbacks for sale, and it'd be nice to minimize the messing around I have to do to set that up. Is there a standard format that publishers eneraly prefer, or are the publisher preferences just all over the map?

Thanks again,

Since publishers generally use the one size page in paper comics, it probably would be a good idea to use that as your guideline.

Most modern publishers accept and many prefer PDFs. Publishers using 10+ years old equipment might only accept PS or EPS files, but I doubt you'll come across any like that.

A standard comic book is apparently 6.625 x 10.25.
