It is a lot harder than it looks. Had a story, and tried to partner with a few artists, but we could never make it work. Best time lasted a little over a year before real life kicked in and she couldn't afford the time to do it any more. Tried to turn it into a text-only story with reader input after some prompting from a friend, but that attempt stagnated as I realized it needed some major rewrites to my outline, I didn't have an interested audience at that venue, and that I really needed to have more of the long term plotline planned than I had in order to structure things properly.
So yeah, no wonder there are a lot of dead comics.
