before DD crashed i randomed a google search of “comics”, i eventually got here, the level of talents and community i found were so good it totally inspired me to make a webcomic of my own and strive to be a better than “ugly doodles during free time” artist.

I was reading Charby the Vampirate when I decided to check it out. It's also the first site I came across that hosted web comics

I chose DD because I liked it's layout and loved the comments people left under the comic pages. It gave me a good feeling.

Well DD is a place where new artists or artists who can't afford webspace can put their art up for people to see. Besides the few spammers, DD has a great community and I have made friends from here.

I have been on here since 2003 and have seen many changes. I even left three times.

Once because I was younger and couldn't take criticism.
Two, because people were spamming my comic
Three, the site crashed.

But I love the duck and I always come back. Volte is a great guy for making this and letting new people get their start. I hope as time goes on DD gets even bigger and better.

DD loks pretty spiffy since the redesign, and Platinum Studios' backing seemed like a good chance to come to the attention of a publisher (I do plan to publish). Also I can't do html even if my very life depended on it, so Drunkduck's system seemed easy enough. But the thing that made me choose DD was the featured comic list. It ignited my ego, cause I don't want to do a comic. I want to do a featured comic. Not a chance at this rate, but maybe in the future…

I joined DD mainly because it's free, but after using the service I've found it extremely user-friendly and yes, as a lot of other people have mentioned, there is a great sense of being part of a huge, friendly community. Would I use it if I were to start all over - HELL YEAH! Course I would. Bit of a no-brainer there!
Where does reason stop and killing just take over?

The community!

I was on SJ for a few weeks, but people weren't very supportive. My interest dwindled.. D:

I can't remember exactly how I first came across Drunk Duck, or should I say WHY I did. I know that it was through Google, but can't remember what I was actually searching for.

Anyway, after a while of reading people's comics, I really wanted to make my own. So I did. Not a great one, but it keeps me busy when I should be doing other things! Muhaha!

Drunk Duck is free, easy to use, well laid-out, and just feels right! (Very stirring, don't you think?)

Having tried keenspace, and also having tried the self-host route, I was desperately in need of something easy but awesome. I only came across drunkduck yesterday, but already I'm loving it.

I posted my comics on here because it was previously on tripod, but that was a pain in the butt and no one respects tripod, so I came here. The system is a lot easier to use and DD is probably a lot more respected.

I guess my reason was the chance to get noticed. I could start a classic website as well, but who the hell would read my comic then? With no money paid for ads?

Now I see I kinda overestimated it, but still someone entered my site. That's good.

Why particulary Drunk Duck? It has a catchy name. Someone gave me a list of such servises and I remembered this one.

Well, soon I'll have my own site for my comics but I like the community aspect of here so I'll just post my comics here and on my site.

Also (besides ComicSpace, eck) this is the 1st Webcomic Community I came across :P

DD was recommended to me by a fellow Webcomicker. and like other have said this site is user friendly, easy to set up with, and the community seems to be a lot tighter.

I have a mirror site that is a) “presdidgious” all applicants must be selected to be a part of the community, b) you must know your own HTML, be able to upload through a SMS kind of loader…overall it was a huge headache.

I like the point and click, HTML for dummies, upload with a button, plus all the friendly people here to help out!

If I had to do it over again? Heck yeah I'd stick with this…

I have a site with my comic already at http://www.bymagic.com, but I wanted more exposure for it. I belong to comicspace (http://www.comicspace.com) and heard good things from the people there about Drunk Duck, plus comicgenesis gave me a head ache trying to use it.

Also, I'm a technique junkie and I love hearing about how other artists do their work, and this looked like a really good place to discuss creating comics with other people who love comics.

i had a comic up here called comatosis.

Then all of a sudden someone forgot to pay the bill and the site went down along with the webcomic hosting code thingy..

I went underground.

and there was talk about it never returning to free hosting anymore =(

i went more sad since i love making comics and DD is very Sweet Motivation as people actually read the comic you post and update.

anyho reason why i pick it was casue i found it the only free comic host wich i knew of anyho at the time and i came back here and saw it was back to life but better.

and i had also started a new comic wich is up here only on the 3 page but it takes a while to update putting into account the effort.

I was trying to look for a new place to put comics because Smack Jeeves was so rescricting. But then Smack Jeeves lost it's server so I guess that finally gave me the motivation to leave and come here. And I'm glad that I did make the switch.

Hehe well it all started with a webcomic called “Tsunami Channel” (forgot how I found it) whom started drawing contest but you needed to sign up to a fourm called Ponju (2003). On the forum were places for comic's to have their own forums & discussions.

One of the comics I started reading was Eunice's “Ghost Hunters” (started reading long time ago). One day I notice they were coming up with another comic “I come from Mars”, which was hosted by Drunk Duck. For the longest time I just only read that comic until one day I found out there was MANY MANY MANY comics on the main page lol .

I started reading comics mostly at work to help the time go by. Took some time but I opened up an account. It wasn't until around December 2006 until I started posting my own comic. And here I am today :) still learning to draw and I love reading peoples comics

I think it's awesome they host your comics for free

I asked over at Digital Webbing what hosts they recommended, and this one was mentioned the most. I like it so far.

I'm new here, so I know pretty well why. Mostly because it's free, and plenty of us computer geeks come to this site. I considered trying to run to have a fancomic on
B&G once, but that was one of my stupider ideas(which is really saying something.) It's like a dream come true to come here. I regret my choice not at all.
I am so happy to finally be back home
