Greetings, webcomic-y people!
There hasn't been activity in this group for a while, mostly because the people who started it have been busy, but I think it's high time to kick things off. I discovered Drupal a couple of years ago when looking for a nice CMS to host my webcomic, and the cloud of information I wanted to use to document the fictional world it took place in. I whipped up a very (very!) simple module called 'comic' that was available for download on Drupal.org for almost a year.
Along the way, I learned a lot about Drupal and got sucked into the community's vortex of awesomeness. Early this year, I started work on an advanced replacement for comic.module called, conveniently enough, webcomic.module. It's in a just-usable but still-experimental state, and it has a long way to go before it can really be the basis of a solid comic site. The purpose of this group is to gather insights from people who either run webcomics, are looking for tools to do so, or want to help build those tools. I know what MY needs are, but I want to make sure that Drupal has the tools necessary to meet other comic sites' needs as well.
Later today, I'm going to write up the revised battle plan for webcomic.module, and outline what features it will provide and how they'll work. In the meantime, feel free to chip in with your thoughts on what Drupal-As-A-Comic-System needs to succeed, what features are essential, and what you've learned in building any existing non-drupal comic sites.
