If you're a decent artist…why bother with sprites?
That's “Dr. BlkKnight” to all of you.

what digital art package do you have? If I assume you are skint and can't afford one then click the link below.

http://www.gimp.org

GiMP isn't quite as complex as photoshop but does most of what it does just as well as photoshop, for free.
I also find it easier to get to grips with than photoshop.

so if you can scan in just the line art and digitally manipulate it then that gives you another option.

I'm a sucker for hand drawn things

It give it more soul………yeah that sounds dumb

I just prefer the way it looks.

If you have drawing talent, use it to its full extent. That's just my opinion

Back in the day I was a wicked artist… My fellow students and teachers alike all fawned over my talent… then high school came, my art teacher lost my portfolio and told me to redo ALL of it… I told her to F#$% off and never picked up a pencil or pen again to even doodle… I turned to spriting due to a phailur of a teacher.

Granted, I got pretty good at it fairly quick.

That is a lame excuse to stop drawing.

I mean, I could see you maybe not re-doing the portfolio, but not drawing at all?

I'm not particularly fond of sprite comics. I think that, if you're capable of drawing, then sprite comics are almost a little bit lazy – that's not to say that all of them are, or that they don't require effort. But if you have the ability to draw and you're really concerned with telling a story, why wouldn't you draw the work yourself? You brag that your computers are equipped with CS3, so I would personally spend time looking at how to fix the uploading in screwed-up colors so you can use your state-of-the-art software and improve your artistic skills rather than spending that time on learning how to make sprite comics.

Why even bother with sprites fro the get go. Hand drawn comics are unique to the core because they are nearly limitless while sprites are not as interesting and can fulfill but so many things. Sure hand drawn comics have been here from like the beginning of time but they still haven;t gotten old and will out do sprite comics no matter what because of the many different views and things an artists can accomplish such as myself. Artists have great visions and can render the most beautiful of scenes and if you don't have the resources to draw a comic, find ureself an artist who willing to do it for you. You can go to many sites to find tins of willing artists and if I were you, I'd do hand drawn in the mean time whilst looking for an artist of atleast invest in a scanner while drawing out the pages in the side, racking up page after page, readying myself for the initial release of my comic. It's up to you.
