The bad thing with webcomics, or good depending on how you see it, is that there is hardly ever any "cutting room" editing done. While traditionally released comics have a issue size of 22 pages, a webcomic can easily drag on for hundreds of pages for each chapter. I think very few authors have the self critique to cut in their story and generally makes their comic way longer than it needs to be.
I readily admit that I glossed over much of this thread... but i caught this interesting tid bit!
I actually think that an advantage of webcomics is that it breaks free of the 22 page format. The whole 22 page thing was something that got formulated as a happy medium between acceptable reading length, expectations from talent, and cost effectiveness. Its sort of a meaningless formula that is adhered to mostly out of it being the way things have been done for some time. Same goes for the 6 issue story arc (dictated to publishers by book chains as the perfect length for a TPB).
Anyhow... that much said. I do 22 page chapters... hahah! Why? Cause I print each chapter as a comic... and it kind of helps me put some structure and boundaries in an otherwise willy nilly ness.
See... i've just sucessfully argued with myself.
Anyway. As far as endings go: WAY far away i have an end for Mastorism, but there are at least 3 major stories i want to tell before I get to that point (I am in the middle of the first)... each story, though, has its end. I have yet to decide whether or not I want to take a break and do something different between stories... i think it will depend on the readership. If i feel that I can get away with doing something else and not lose the readership i have built for Mastorism... okay. But more than likely that will not be the case, so I will just have to continue. It should be interesting...
