Hmmm, it would appear that the paper I'm using to create my new comic, Zombie Party! , is too big to fit in my scanner. Any advice?

….Getting a new scanner is out of the question at this time.

Use different paper.

Only other thing I could think of is cutting your pages and putting them back together in a computer program, but that usually loses something and shows a seam without some editing (which could be a hassle).

Or use smaller paper but draw only one or two panels on it. Then you don't have to worry about “seams” or anything when you compile your finished pages.

Scan them in parts and piece them together in whatever computer program you have. It's time-consuming, and it would be easier if you switched to smaller paper next time 'round, but it can be done.

Two ways to get around this…

1. As everyone else has said, scan it in in bits and piece them back together. Bit time consuming.

2. (As suggested to me by Laura Watton) Take your images down to a copy-shop, and get them to photocopy your images at a reduced size and then scan the photocopies in.

If these are too time consuming, you may want to think about switching to smaller paper.
