Hello... I am new here. I have only recently gotten into web comics. My two favs are Leftover Soup and Questionable Content. I went thru both of their archives in no time at all and now await their updates like an addict.

I do have my own idea about starting a new web comic. The idea is very much in its infancy for now... I have mostly been doing research on all the "How To's" , "Do's and Don'ts" and tutorials out there... and there is ALOT of wonderful info out there to take in. so over the next few months I will be working on scripts, artwork, character development, getting my "buffer" together as well as researching tools techniques, and the technical side of the whole web hosting bit.

So I know I have alot of work ahead of me but I am very excited and look forward to all the fun that lies ahead for me.

I have also decided to do all my strips 100% digitally... I also found an awesome deal on a Wacom Bamboo CTH-460 that I will be learning to use. So if any of you have any tips that you think might make things go smoother for me in that area... please let me know.

I'm Henry! Finally, I am here. I love reading comics since I was a child like peanuts, marvel. Anyway, I had fun reading cat nine.

Hello everybody! I've been into comics sense I was little. My first exposure to them was the marvel kids line. I got into them because of the spiderman and xmen movies from the 00's. Now I read more adult stuff by the likes of Alan Moore and Grant Morrison. I've also trying to go back and read some of the original Stan Lee/Jack Kirby stuff. I've been reading webcomics for 3 or 4 years now. Some of my favorites are Whomp! and Paranatural. I also have my own webcomics projects. I help write for a comic called A S S A S S I N-13 over on comic fury. I have some solo projects in the works as well.

Does that mean I'm like Bruce Willis at the end of Sixth Sense?
