So, with the coming of the webcomic one must choose a platform.  As far as I can tell, there are three major ways to do webcomics online.

  1.  Build a website of your own from scratch.

I’ll dig in further about the specs of the different platforms on another post with links, etc.

One of the webcomics I read is: The Pale

If you click on the hyperlink they have a nice header image at the top of everything.

So there you go!  I’ll be inking over the next few days – and then I’ll scan and do some color!  One must have color for a banner.
