My sister and I wanted to put up our own comic and I only knew about this one and comic genesis. Oh, and SmackJeeves. I wasn't too keen on picking SmackJeeves (I dunno why, it just doesn't seem to appealing to me). Then I went to Comic Genesis where the signup is waaaay too complicated for a simple gag strip I wanted to post up. So I ended up waiting for over a month for them to reply. Grrr them. Their forum FAQs didn't help me much either T_T.

Finally I gave up Comic Genesis and came to DrunkDuck. Way more user friendly. I was a bit wary about signing up but I'm glad I did. It went something like this: *click* “Huh…that was it? Cool!”. So yeah.

The deciding factor was the community. Its nice to start a comic in a community of like minded people. The comics here run from people just learning to total pros, so its a great mix and a lot of people to learn from, and network with.

I could have the customization, and ability to run ads and whatnot, hosting it myself, but the community brought me here.

I didn't know that there are sites that hosts web comic for free until a few days ago. I stumbled on this site by jumping from one comics to another. I post my comics in a blog site but DrunkDuck provides better interface for readers.

I was hosting my webcomic at Live journal and I then found Drunk duck after looking for some webcomics to read. After reading the Free hosting thing I jumped off Live journal and got into Drunk Duck.

I've been itching to try my hand at webcomics for quite some time now. I have a lot of ones that I really like and read religiously that have been my inspiration. I tried Comicgenesis and…well…it stamped out my desire for a bit with it's overly convoluted structure. I've read some Drunk Duck webcomics in the past, but for some reason, it didn't occur to me until now that I could easily sign up and start a webcomic quickly! Once I realized how user friendly it was, I hoped right on! It makes me sooooooo happy to be able to start a webcomic without much hassle! Now I can focus more on drawing the comic instead of figuring out how to get it posted!

DrunkDuck was recommened to me by a random poster on my DeviantArt pages two years ago. I had hoped to get Lamora up here last year but alas life got in the way ^^;

I'm nearing the end of Chapter Teo but I'm still editing the text in Chapter One and getting it up here segment by segment :)
I hope to have it all caught up by the end of the summer.
When I friggin learn HTML I will rule the world! MUAHAHA!

I did a lot of research on wecomic hosts before I ended up here.

What discouraged me were two things: 1 - I wanted to host the comic myself but didn't have the ressources to do so.

2 - A lot of webcomic hosts cost money… and it's not something I can quite afford at the moment.

So I looked around a lot. Even found one where another one of my comics is hosted, but it's community wasn't quite… I don't know. Not too appealing. The interface wasn't bad but had too many glitches. Mind you, that was… maybe 2 years ago.

So when I finaly started on A.W.52, I went around a lot and used Deviantart to get recommendations from other members. Drunk Duck came up… and upon checking it out, I found it was a wonderful, talented community. The interface was also very user friendly. So I thought “What the hell! Let's jump the wagon!”

And here I am! :)

after alot of googling and checking other places, I found that the Duck would be the best place to host my comic strip!
Cause I'm new at this, I read that the community of the Duck were really helpful, and that was my main reason!

I had a lot of trouble with the previous host I used for my comic so I decided to leave after a lot of inactivity.

So far, DD has been a lot easier to update, (no funky programs required), it hasn't crashed down, and everything makes sense. I'm so not a computer person so I need someone to handle basic page layouts for me and such. Plus, there's a good sense of community. =D
Sig? Yeah, I'll get to it. >_<

I checked out a number of online comic hosting sites before I came here. I settled on two, because both hosting sites each separately had a number of the features I was looking for (but not all on the same site; alas, too bad neither the twain shall meet).
I like drunkduck.com the best because I can keep track of hits and comments on my pages. I do wish I could find more artists from MY area here. If there's a browse function for that, I haven't found it yet.
But this site wins hands-down for interface and features! I'm glad I found dd.com.

Stop in and visit me sometime!

I chose DD For my hosting site because of the strong sense of community and the broad range of people and talent.It is by far the best comic hosting site on the net .sure there is comic space smack jeeves and so on but there is a magic here that exists no where else on the net.

It seemed less complicated than comicgenesis, and, well… better than smackjeeves. lol. And most of my favorite comics were already hosted here. :)

I choose DD because a freind of mine (Dr Lympus) was adding his comics up during lunch at my school.

I thought it would be a good way to learn to draw and make funny stuff.

I chose DrunkDuck because it seemed like a good place to show your ideas and your imagination. I never knew of a community before that you could put your comics on before until I read a comic on this website, and when I found out that I could put my creations on this website, I wanted to join it. I joined yesterday, and I already made one comic already.

Reason Hu? well mine was quick and easy-
I had several storys on the back burner, wanting a place to make their home.
A slow day at work & a google search later i found Super Temps (Thanks to smkinoshita) & i got to reading the Forums & Other comics posted & found the people here to be helpful & , so i figured what did i have to loose & here i am.

Actually the user interface drew me here mostly i tried Keenspace a looong time ago and mastering the FTP and all the page design stuff kind of pushed me off of using it. This place is very user friendly.

I initially stumbled upon the Simply Sarah comic (I can't even remember how) and then found drunkduck, saw other comics and it made me feel like it was possible to give making a comic a shot. there is absolutely no discouragement here. which is awesome, it's an open community, not like some closed secret club that you have to know the secret handshake to join lol

I started drawing comics during maths lessons, and mentioned to a friend that i'd like to put them on the internet for a laugh. He got very serious about it and did a lot of searching and looking around and told me to put them up here.
And so I did and I havn't regretted it.

Meanwhile he's considering buying HTML for dummies.

All the other comics sites seem to have this atmosphere like cruising the mall parking lot after midnight.
NOTHING GOING ON.

I love it here.

It came down to a couple of sites and one seemed ruthlessly efficient. I chose this one instead.

Being British, I prefer something that's held together with string and needs a good kick to get it started in the morning.
Er……..boo!

It's very user friendly. I tried a lot of comic hosting sites before but they're all complicated so I went to Drunkduck. And I have to say I'm quite satisfied with my choice. Yep. Cool site is cool.
