BMP is not a proper web format ;)
That's a completely uncompressed file. Drunk Duck like most places that host images accepts JPG, GIF, PNG and SWF.

If you're saving from a program like MS paint, simply go to “file”, then “save as”, put a name in the name field and then click the “save as Type” box under it. Instead of “24-bit Bitmap” choose “JPEG”, “GIF”, or “PNG”.

If your comic is a sprite comic, then you're probably better off picking PNG (if you're using MS paint), because it has better presets to deal with the image and will make it look better. But in any more advanced program that has better settings control, then GIF or 8 bit PNGs are both equally as good.
