Do large archives scare folks away?

I've been experiencing this problem for a while, where potential readers are immediatly turned off by the size of my archives. Even people I talk to on msn say things like "I'll get around to reading it one day" as if it's a chore. I would take this as something negative except that everyone who HAS read from begining to end has enjoyed it, it's just the getting into part that seems to scare people.
I think this goes more for story comics like mine than gag strips but has anyone else here experienced a similar problem? Either way what I really wanna know is, can you think of why this may be the case?
I've been at this for almost 3 years and the most obvious reason I know of is time, people just don't have the time or patience to read through a story comic with a large archive unless it's a particularily well known one.
Discuss away folk.
