Webcomic Anthology Industry Standards
Though they get their start online, many webcomic creators eventually reach the point where they want to collect their pages in a printed collection. Webcomics come in all shapes and sizes, from four panel comic strips to standard comic book pages to long intricate webpages. The printed anthologies mirror these formats and ultimately the size of the collection depends on what fits the original art the best. Many creators wish to mimic the look and feel of graphic novels and select their paper stocks accordingly, though often times they will go slightly thicker for a sturdier-feeling book.
