I was curious if most people here are webcomic creators or webcomic readers? I think it's a really exciting medium that I have only recently got into and can't wait to see how it develops in the years to come. I personally assume that within the decade webcomics will be seen as equal if not dominant over traditional comics.

Third option: I am both a creator and a reader. I read more than I make, though.

I think most of us have a webcomic. The most active section here is the "Check out my comic" and most discussions are about creation.

Welcome!

I would fall under both, but I would assume that if you create a webcomic, you probably read them too.

I was reading for twelve years before I finally became a creator.
I think I read even more now than I did before. But that's mostly because Comic Rocket makes it so easy to read archives.

Very similar story for me. And given my low views, I would have to ask myself, if a creator puts a comic on the internet, but nobody reads it, does it still make a sound?

Wait, something's not quite right there...

I looked up this forum as a creator. But then, part of your work as creator is to read what is out there!

I also joined this forum as a creator, but have been checking other comics since joining. There are a lot of people putting out really high quality work. I kind of find it to be a little intimidating.

I'm both as well. I've been reading webcomics for years, but I've been reading a much wider variety now that I create them too.

I think most of the people that come here as just readers are mainly to ask "does anyone remember what this comic is?" But that doesn't mean someone who's just a reader isn't welcome here. Just most of the topics are creator issues.

Try not to let anyone intimidate you, since I think that's counterproductive of the community and I'm sure you have your own unique flair to offer. Smile But could I suggest putting the pages on your site instead of just having a PDF? I tried downloading one issue and the loading bar is going really slow. I'd really like a sample in the very least before I commit to waiting this through.
