One of the most common questions I’m asked is, “How can I make my webcomic successful?”
Well, that depends on your definition of “successful.” I started 8- bit Theater to entertain four or five specific people with my crude exercises in Photoshop. They have liked every page of 8BT, and I have gotten more proficient with Photoshop, so I have always considered it a success. If this is all you want out of your webcomic, then you don’t need me to tell you how to do it and the rest of this article will be a waste of your time or, at best, a curiosity.
Hell, I don’t even know how 8-bit Theater got to be popular. But I can tell you why. And some of you won’t like it.
