Infinite Canvas is an application to create infinite canvas webcomics developed by Markus MÃ¼ller. Recently on his blog MÃ¼ller issued a question that someone might be able to help him with:

How much of an affect does format, frequency and humor have on a webcomics success? Neal Von Flue is attempting to figure these things out (and attempting to see how the other half lives) by starting his first daily webstrip called Underhunt.
“The premise is each week I will draw new art and then spend the rest of the time using the art to write new comics published daily,” said Von Flue. “It’s also not going to be funny. On purpose. It’s about as mean and depressing as you can get. Well, I have to admit they make me giggle occasionally, so let’s just say I’m ‘deliberately shying from a standard comedic formula.'”
