Well, as far as the website goes, you could always use a something like blogger.  Granted, it wouldn't have the nice newest, next, last, first, lay out of your typical web comic, but there are several people that use a free blogging site to host their comics. 

If you are actually wanting to setup your own site, I'd be willing to help a little.

Did a bit of Googling and there appear to be some pretty decent free CMS's for a webcomic.

Comic Press seems to the best of them so far and is apparently what PvP online uses. 

A couple of other scripts that look promising.

Any way, if you have some questions, I program for a living.  So, I could probably help out a bit.

I have to say that I am fairly impressed with the Word Press + Comic Press pairing.  If you have a place to host a site that supports php and a mysql database, I could help you get setup easily. 

Still, don't write off the whole livejournal, blogger, etc option. It is free and easy and you could always migrate your comic later if it was going well and you wanted a change.

Bravo Gilead Bravo.  The horrified nazi looking up his kilt almost had me in stitches.

I was wondering if anyone else had noticed that. My roommate gave me a weird look on account of my mixture laughing/wheezing/crying.

Gilead, you are a gentleman and a scholar, and a wonderful writer and artist besides. Thank you for sharing your fantastic works. I agree with the others. You definitely deserve your own website.

This was my favorite entry post anyone has eve rmade on any website ever. Loved the drawings.

Also, when I was 15 I sent letters and got letters from and also phone interviewd Jimmy James, who totally escaped from Sachenhausen with Jack Churchill. Which was the most awesome thing I have ever done.

I still can't get over people randomly being excited about Jack Churchill on a non-historical message board. How insanely awesome is that.

Yes of COURSE I still have the letters. They're some of my favorite things I own. They are not, however, on the computer. At the moment, if yall are interested, I will point the way towards the interview I did with the Mr James when I was 15. Never mind the 15 year old writing talents.

I call shenanigans!

I cannot find any supporting evidence online that Fighting Jack Churchill did indeed wear a mustache during WWII.  See images:

He did sport a pretty sweet full beard after the war though.

Okay, dude on the  right is either Siegfried Sassoon, or Sassoon's twin...So confused.

Apparently, after all the bish-bosh was over, Jack decided to go off to the antipodes, learn to surf, then came back and was the first person to ride the five-foot River Severn tidal bore. This man was evidently made of 600% more awesome than the average god.

Not nearly as insanely awesome as he was. I'm pretty sure this forum appreciates all kinds of badassery.
