here appears to be a page from inside

the ones who bought it on amazon seem to love it

When I broke my arm,comics were my only entertainment in the hospital..
They don't need to be long for me..the element of surprise is key..As long as a comic is not too predictable..There were some longer ones I just closed because they were boring in the hospital ..how many pages you think is right?

depends on story for me...

There are no rules in this, atleast I don't know If there are any - I don't follow any anyways....

I enjoyed all the Lobo comics when younger, than sin city, Hitman, some batmans - I dont care about superheroes all that much tho
Hellblazer was quite good and quite long...
Sandman offcourse, however long those stories are, not every story is good there tho

Y comic, DMZ, Walking dead etc etc all long episodes far and wide stories...

Preacher Is excellent each book quite long but brilliant I love preacher!

Logic sais: The more of anything you wanna have in comic the more pages it will take. But you can say same story using 5 pages or using 15 pages...

But if you look for example on my favorite game related comic . TF2 comic their episodes are mostly quite short, but quite entertaining and with nice story complimenting the game events and characters...

Ultimately to answare your question - I think how many pages it takes to be cool, is right.

Think it were the simpsons comics in the hospital I quite enjoyed..they brought me other ones too but can't remember..
was thinking short stories about 7 pages and long ones 2O something
But as many as it takes to be cool indeed..
After all its not the amount of pages that should count but the story

Maybe if there will be special missions like in carma 2 in CR carreer mode..it could add extra flavor for longer comics as well
Perhaps there would be missions appearing in the comic they'd want to add in downloadable packs

Yes there is unlimited potencial of uses of CR comic... however I know for certain that unless I will make it as full time job I will not be able to pull 20pager per month... no sir..

Ussually comics are made like this:

One person or more do the writing,
one person does the inking
another does the coloring
and another does the lettering.

lucky you,well I can't complain because I play games constantly and get paid anyway..People would probably call me mad, but what they view as normal is often insane to me..so I guess its all pretty subjective :D

Regardless of how long your next comic will be,I look forward to it

I could be one I guess,at the moment I'm not.
Do whatever I feel like..15 september I'm going to the music academy
when devoted work gets answered by them throwing you away like a used tissue that is the only answer
I profit from my compensation since I have no costs
