Yesterday, I spent a few hours enabling a feature that was missing from the Web comics platform at ComicBookBin. Since we launched our Web comic platform in November 2014, we never had a link allowing readers to skip to the latest comic online.
It's a common feature in Web comic platform that helps usability. If a reader pops in on page five, he or she may want to skip to the last strip and not bother reading what's in between. As a creator, this is weird behaviour for me. But as a user experience architect, it is my my duty to facilitate how users interact with the site.
I could not implement the feature before. I had tried several times before to enable it. However, one of my conditions was that it would have to be automated. It's easy to add a link to all existing strips. But updating a long running Web comic weekly can be tiresome.
It took a while, but I made it happen. All of the Web comics at ComicBookBin can now link to their last pages easily. The feature is called "Last Comic."
