Question is, how many pages do you prefer per episode?
Thing is my newest chapters need up to 70 pages, and I end up having a chapter divided in 2 episodes (Tapas' names for the updates) of 30 or so pages.
But I fear that these 30+ pages episodes are too much for new readers, and I was thinking that it might be good to divide the chapters in episodes of 8 or 10 pages to prevent that.
I think I can add and reorder episodes without losing the views/likes I already got, correct me otherwise.
Here's an example of the pages I do from CH1 (oldest) and CH5 (latest) respectively:
These are kinda like the most "text-filled" pages from their own chapters.
Next are the total pages per episode(+covers and so on):
- 37 pages (CH1)
- 37 pages (CH2)
- 40 pages (CH3)
- 26 pages (CH4 I)
- 25 pages (CH4 II)
- 28 pages (CH5 I)
- 7 pages (CH5 II)
- 38 pages (CH5 III)
And finally, a survey to know how many pages would you think are okay for each episode, and if so, whether I should do it for the already uploaded ones or just for the next ones I'll upload:
- 8-10 pages starting from next episode
- 8-10 pages for everything already uploaded
- 16-20 pages starting from next episode
- 16-20 pages for everything already uploaded
- 32+, leave it as it is
Here's the comic if you need to see more pages to take a decision:
How many pages per episode do you make?
What kind of format do you prefer to use?
Thing is I'm inclining to reupload the whole series but in parts of 4 or so pages as many have proposed.
I was already working on some corrections to the first three chapters to later update the Tapas episodes and start uploading to Webtoons as well. This in order to not overwhelm new readers from Tapas and Webtoons with a 37-pages Chapter 1 and as some of you said, to be more present in the fresh category.
Though panels and story will remain the same, drawings would be more consistent, typos corrected and some dialogues will be shortened and others that were redundant deleted, along with better dialogue bubbles that help for the flow of it.
Here is some comparison between Page 13 from old CH1 and new CH1:
Only thing I'm not sure now is if I should delete the already uploaded episodes or to edit the 8 I have so Episodes 1-8 would be CH1 divided in parts of 4-5 pages, and then upload the new versions of the chapters during this month.
Thanks to everyone who has voted/commented so far!
