Schlock mercenary does try to stick to that and still by the end of a story I often forget the details of the initial entanglement so I often have to reread it once it's over.
Can't disagree, but I do actually enjoy going back for a full reread for webcomics I'm really into. I definitely notice how much better things go together when I do so, as opposed to getting things page-by-page.
Some webcomics handle this better than others. At least in Schlock's case most pages work fairly well standalone with the humor.
