This is pretty fustrating since webcomics often have no fixed end in sight, and they all make stupid assumptions like you will have the remaining characters resume normal lives, or that you don't use Evil Protagonists!
Can anyone recommend somewhere I can find good tutorials on how to make webcomics? I am not refering to art or the page layout either. I'm sick of those ones!

However, good writing is good writing whatever the medium. I assume you are interested in doing a story-based strip rather than gag-a-day. Even though the strip is ongoing, unless your work is very experimental there are going to be plot "arcs" within the overall story, and you can still apply the novel-writing techniques to each individual arc.
