Hi I am trying to create a webcomic using Wordpress as the CMS. I know how to build Wordpress Themes but I am having a challenging task on how to best create a user-friendly and easy to read webcomic online.
this: http://manga.bleachexile.com/bleach-chapter-420.html hosts loads of webcomics and when you click through to the next page there are Next buttons and a drop down which list all the issues and pages. What is the best way to do this in Wordpress? And how is it best for users to easily update their webcomic pages in the admin area. I know you can edit text and add images it would be a pain to upload so many images and then having to manually add each one with Custom Fields that would be a pain.

Thanks for the links it seems Comic Press is the best theme to use for webcomic based sites.

I think this is the plugin you're looking for: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/comicpress-manager/
*Note: I haven't tried it myself, though so I'm not sure if it's great or if it's compatible with WP 3.0

You might also need a webhost, either free or paid, download Wordpress from Wordpress.org, just upload it to your webhos and then download Comicpress and upload that as well.
Here's some tutorial on how to download: http://www.djcoffman.com/tikibar/2008/09/17/host-your-own-friggin-webcomic/

Thanks for the links. But theyre more of a gallery with jquery lightbox effects which isnt what I'm really looking for. I was looking more like this site I mentioned: http://manga.bleachexile.com/bleach-chapter-420.html
where users can navigate through the site with drop downs
