There's no set rule that you can't organically adjust things as you go. For the most part this is a hobby, and a learning exercise more than anything. And I think we draw a lot (where's Joel when you need him) of understanding and skill from looking at the failures. More forward, but don't worry about what has already happened.
If you get disastified, I am in the school just pack it up and make a new comic.

There's also a lot of cases where authors were very attached to their characters, so they were starting new comics reusing old characters. Take John Allison for examole, he's been using his characters of Shelly and Tim since his pre-internet high school comics.

Anyways, some of the best stories start in the middle.

But even newspaper comics are rarely consistent from beginning to end. Just remember those early Calvin & Hobbes strips.
