A few days ago, I stumbled across a fellow creator who was asking how should you work on a webcomic? They weren’t referring to how long should one spend on an individual episode or chapter or even page, rather, how long should a comic project take you and how long is too long to be working on one single story?
At the time of writing, my comic partner and I have been working on comics for nearly two years now. We have two different projects with vastly different expectations for how much effort/time they will ultimately take.
Our sci-fi series is very involved. There are a lot of moving parts and it will take time for those events to unfold. So the time it is expected to take to tell this story will be any number of years, in comparison to our other series which is more light hearted and, in turn, lighter in subject matter.
When it comes to determining how long a story should take to complete, and how long is too long, you have to look at how much is really involved in telling the story you want to tell, and in turn, is that the sort of time you want to spend? Creating an outline of events will go a long way in helping you figure this question out.
There is no right or wrong answer. It is up to you to determine how long is too long to be working on a story.
