Awesome! This is a step in the right direction. However, too much is truncated from my comics now.

What entices readers to click on a comic are the drawings. But now all images are truncated and the only thing really visible on my profile are the headlines of my comics:

It’s certainly better than before, but, again, what makes a reader click on a comic is not the headline, but the visuals — especially since short comic strips often need to have somewhat vague headlines to not give away the punchline of the joke.

So with the current solution too much of the images is cut off. For example, if I have a comic comprised of three images, I think it would be better if readers could see the first image in all its glory to make them click to see the remaining images. Instead, now they only see a small grayed-out slice of the first image, which I don’t think is enough to draw them in.

The ideal solution would probably be to allow poets, writers, and comic artists to specify a point within the story where the “read more” breaking point should be.
