The comics were too big you have to scroll.
I turned them to hyper links instead.

Reduce the size. It's too wide. Try doing 2 panels on 2 rows.

And work on your backgrounds. A LOT. Try BGHQ. They have just about anything you'll ever need. (Both MMX and MMZ 32-bit backgrounds)

You need a lot of work on text. The text is uneven, leaving white space in the bubbles, and it looks very unprofessional.

Make the comic look good. The content of the comic is only as good as how appealing it is to the eye. Remember: A comic is PURELY visual. If it doesn't look good, then it can't be good. A movie has animation, sound, and flashy effects. But a comic can't. You have to work HARD at making it look good.

You've got SOME potential, but not much. Work harder at making it look good. Read other sprite comics, (NOT BOB AND GEORGE) to help.

Use CrystalMan's comic(s) as a model, it's got a good mixture of serious-ness and comedy. And the visuals are good. For SFX I'd use Paint.Net

Thanks for the advice.The poor quality is probably because I use MSpaint.

Take tips from this comic. It's completely done in MS paint.

He uses Photoshop, Crystal, but MOSTLY Paint. FX in Paint are the lose, Paint.Net is the next best thing to Photoshop (not that crappy elements either.

Actually, I almost guarantee you he doesn't use photoshop. And if he does, he doesn't use it to make effects. I have yet to see an effect in the comic that couldn't be done in paint.

Now, bear in mind, Photoshop makes things much easier, but it doesn't mean that there are many impossible things in paint.

Hmm....well for now I'll keep working on the quality until I'm able to improve it.
And paint.net takes really long to install so I'll keep working on MSpaint and maybe photoshop.

I know that he said it in the author comments he made after it was done. And if you look at some of the more recent comics, you'd see that he does. >.>

He comments on them, since he is going through the archives now that the comic is over, if you wanna re-read and look through all the comments, be my guest.
