    which can be more successful: short stories or novels?

    I'm about to start on a new project involving webcomics

    but I'm concern about the type of stories we could make (short or novel)

    I've heard that short stories tend to attract more audiences

    is that true?

    this will be my first webcomic project so I'm pretty much new in all this

    can any one give your opinion on that?

    Depends on your genre.

    Short stories are good practice to develop your ability to create character in a short amount of time. Novels are good for creating worlds and mood, personal statements with more depth, and pulling your audience into and having them feel the world in which your characters inhabit.

    Success is also subjective. Since this is a webcomic and you're new, I'd suggest starting in story arcs and build from there. Arcs will get the reader comfortable in your world, thus giving you experience in how to craft the stories and how far to take them.
