Comic pages

Comic pages are the building blocks of a comic’s narrative or, in the case of daily comics, the one-off jokes that people come to read.

Comic pages are different from static pages, which only support the website. Static pages are side-shows. Comic pages are the main event.

And they do more than hold images you upload. Each comic page has a unique blog post: text with which you talk about the page du jour. They also have space for a title, description and text transcript, which are boons for SEO.

Comic page text

Comic pages have several text components:

  • Title and description: A quick, SEO-friendly blurb about each page.
  • Blog post: A title and a few Markdown-savvy paragraphs let you give readers insight into the making of your comic or what’s happening that day.
  • Transcript: Plain text that describes what characters are doing and saying in a comic page.

Blog posts and transcripts are optional, but recommended. Unique, descriptive, accurate titles are essential for your site’s archives and, again, good SEO. Use Health Check to watch for too-short or redundant titles.
