If you all are nerds like me then you are aware of xkcd. If I wanted to go about creating my own web comic with a website layout similar to this one, then what would you recommend? Drupal (if so, also refer me to any non-default modules that I would need), WordPress, straight up html?

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

I believe that this question would be better suited for Stack Overflow. – Stemen Nov 22 '10 at 21:52
I think he's looking for a platform and not a development stack (straight up html would be a nightmare). Perhaps superuser would be the place to go. – andyortlieb Nov 22 '10 at 21:57
I think it's fine here. – Virtuosi Media Nov 22 '10 at 22:08
I was migrated from serverfault, but since I didn't yet have a profile here, I don't own this question even though I wrote it. That stinks. – John Berryman Nov 24 '10 at 15:52

Check out ComicPress, based on on Wordpress.

the simpler is Blogger, that you can custom to have the same layout.

Simpler because:

  • free (not like freedom)
  • easy to use
  • easy to custom (behavior, template, CSS...)
  • no installation
  • no worry about hosting
  • direct integration with Picasa for your pictures
  • you can use your own domain name
  • Useful widgets

You might consider Tumblr. Tumblr has most of what Blogger offers, plus it has a 'post-to-Twitter' feature. Also, Tumblr allows you to schedule when posts should be published (though to be fair, you can do this with Blogger too).
