    I waited all week to read, how Ellis soils himself?

    I agree with Brad McLoughlin

    Came in just to mention about Minus, but it was already mentioned by replacement sparrow. So I second it, the best weekly webcomic while it lasted.

    Probably a stupid question but I’m going to ask it, the freak angel’s logo, ok I get the wings but the pump type machinery is this just a steam punk style art work or is there something I am missing.
    Or have I drunk to many stallas and am just looking too deep?

    @replacement sparrow - oh, Family Man! I forgot about that ages ago. If you (and by you I mean EVERYONE) Dylan Meconis' Bite Me! you should! It was excellent. Sadly it lasted only as long as she was in college. But was in every way fun and awesome.

    My webcomic is one page a week on Thursdays, it's called HOW TO BE BULLETPROOF. As far as I know your the only one doing 6 pages once a week, which is the ideal format for a online graphic novel. Other good ones are HIM AND HERS SMUGGLING VACATION and TOZO. OMGBEE's suggestions where probably the best, those webcomic's blow me away.

    I hate when people say "$Thing sucks." and leave it at that. Weekly webcomics can be good, as Freakangels proves. The biggest issue I think they have is pacing. In comics that come up three or five times a week, you have one groaner or a slow plot building installment and nothing bad happens. People take it and wonder where you're going with it. If you're only putting out one a week, then that was your shot to hold the readers attention for seven days.

    Early on, one weak comic could mean losing readers. Two in a row could be disastrous.

    Freakangels does have the advantage of being more than one page per installment and it's a strength. I did a webcomic for a little over a year and I had trouble keeping the pace, in black and white, for two installments a week. I can't imagine doing six pages.

    Hehehe I like the interludes. Warren makes me giggle.

    I think Freakangels is the only webcomic I read regularly because it's not just a collection of 3 panel gags but something to get your teeth into.

    Anyway I'm biased, I've been doing mine Monday to Friday now for about a two years as an ongoing story. If you can be arsed, you can check it out at

    Reading comments above it seems to be that people have trouble imagining producing 6 pages a week, ala FreakAngels. But why do you have to? Why not produce 6 x 6 pages (as an example) in your own lead time, and then put them up weekly when they're done?

    Just because the internet can be real time doesn't mean it has to be.
