What attracts you to a comic?

Story is the most important thing. (And no, I'm not lying. *shifty eyes*)

Art isn't always the big thing. Look at 8-bit Theatre, for instance. That's sprite-ish but everyone seems to love it because of how clever it is.

When approaching a story try to build something unpredictable. The best way to do so is to allow the characters to lead the story. The best way to do that is just to not let yourself get too worked up into going a certain way. A twisty path is harder, granted, to walk than a straight one. But the twistiness makes it all the more fun.

Never do anything you would hate to do. Never let anyone tell you how the story should go.

Take everything slowly. It isn't a race.

All of that advice comes from my belief and can be ignored if wanted. ^___^

i try to fit as much of the story on one page. i don't want a long conversation lasting 3 pages.

slow going webcomics are hard for me to read along with jumpy storyline and mismatching pages.

it's a curse with webcomics that a reader will read it a page at a time during updates. So comics that has at least some resolution on each page gets my thumbs up.

Good art, and a good storyline. One that takes time, but not too much time to unfold, and is well-written. Like a good book, but with pictures. <3

Oh yes, that reminds me. Shonen-ai is a plus too. But only if it's GOOD shonen-ai. D: Bad shonen-ai makes me want to tear my eyeballs out.

Great Story can make up for lack of art usually, but sometimes too poorly drawn (sprited) art can turn me off to where it doesnt matter how good that story was.

Something that you can get the ‘ooh interesting’ effect without reading a bunch of text first.

I glance: if I'm interested, great, if not, I go away.

The quality of the artwork is what draws me in first, but if it's not met with an equally good storyline (either funny- which, in my books, is good no matter how weird the humor is- or mysterious), then it's not worth a second visit.
