My only problem with the new format is that while I can go to the next strip by clicking the current image, the only way to backtrack is with the "Previous" button at the top of the page. Maybe add another set of buttons under the image as well ?

I understand the intention of the new format hiding the punchline as you scroll down, but I stopped reading Manhuas (Chinese & Korean web-comics) because they overuse screen space to drag out the image, forcing you to keep scrolling.
The panels and text being bigger is a plus though.
Well, you asked us last time, and I'll repeat what I said there: I'm still not a fan of this new format. Nothing wrong with experimenting, but in the end I still personally don't think it works better. Having to scroll down to read the comic on PC is cumbersome, even if it does hide the "Punchline".
This one was far easier to read on mobile without having to zoom, it also fir the whole thing onto my screen on mobile, though is the spaces between the 3 images part of what makes it work like this or just there for another reason entirely? On PC it is seems like the text is bigger as well 1/2
There's also not enough content in three comic panels like this to justify a vertical format. It reads much more naturally horizontally, and having to read it one panel at a time feels like unnecessary padding, especially to "preserve" a punchline. (2/2)
Weird as it may sound, I read this webcomic despite the fanservice, not because of it. I'm simply not a fan of that kind of thing, and making it fill up half my screen just makes it harder for me to ignore. (1/2)
Well, Jo does make a ... strong(?) point. More seriously, artists need to play with the format. Break the rules. Push the boundaries. Play with the medium. Have fun with it Jo, we'll tag along for the ride.
