Design A Webcomic Anthology
PrintNinja recommends following these guidelines to design a webcomic anthology.
Though they get their start online, many webcomic creators eventually reach the point where they want to collect their pages in a printed collection. Printing your webcomic in an anthology is a great way to let fans of your comics keep your comics in physical form. Webcomics come in all shapes and sizes, from four-panel comic strips to standard comic book pages to long intricate webpages. The printed anthologies mirror these formats and ultimately the size of the collection depends on what fits the original art the best. Many creators wish to mimic the look and feel of graphic novels and select their paper stocks accordingly, though oftentimes they will go slightly thicker for a sturdier-feeling book. You will have many material options when designing your webcomic anthology with PrintNinja, but we’ve listed a few particularly popular options here.
