I think the most important part of the process is actually having the dedication to continue making the comic after it gets going. There isn't much else I could think of telling you, good luck though!

- Practice the basics. Anatomy, environments, light and shadow. Practice expressions and motion, too. You'll need all of these in your comic. They're not easy, which is exactly why you should practice them. Your comic will most likely call for difficult poses and environments (often all in one panel!), don't shy away from these. Put the work in, it'll get easier after a while. If you try to cheat your way out of the difficult parts, you won't improve and they'll stay difficult forever.

For example, for a story I'm writing now, I already had ideas about how my characters were - even if, apart from a couple of characters, i had no ideas about their personality. When i wrote the plot it was easy to understand all character (and even to kill off one because he didn't fit with the story). I think the mindset beginners have is that they think to their story as something that can't change, instead they should learn that their story can be changed if they recognize the basic idea is good but they did some mistakes to think to the plot at the start.
