New Comic - what format?

I spent this year's 24-hour comic day writing and pencilling a big chunk of a larger project - A Dangerous Man: Why Andrew Jackson was the Meanest, Rottenest, No-Good Son of a Gun what Ever Became President. I'm not sure exactly what to do with it - I inked a page today as a sample and then played around with it a bit in the computer. I'm not sure if I want to try and get it published (it'll be some 100 pages or so upon completion), publish it myself as a small book to sell direct, or make it a web-comic and simply collect it later. Were the latter the case, I could play around with color like this. Anyway, Andrew Jackson was a horrible, horrible man. I hope that, whatever this project's venue, his despotic and cruel ways will be brought to light for a generation that knows him only as the guy on the twenty dollar bill.

The premise kind of reminds me of one of those Chick gospel tracts for some reason. Better watch out, his descendents might come after you!

I read a biography of Jackson once. I don't recall everything but there was some draw dropping moments when I thought, "This guy was one of our presidents?!" There's so much good reading -- and potential graphic novels -- in history. Truth really is stranger than fiction.
