I like to keep mine at 26 pages each, but the first chapter and maybe some future specials are longer.

My first chapter is planned to be 22 pages long (I am currently on page 16) and the chapters after that, I hope to make about 40 pages long.
I reaaaaally hope I manage that xD

On average 20 to 22 pages, but sometimes, I make them shorter or longer.

Looking at my current drafts I have lined up- 20-30 pages seems to be about the norm for me.

In my comic it depends on the content in the chapter it can be short like 6 pages or long like 16 pages.
I normally don't really think about having a certain amount of pages, I try to focus on what i want in the chapter and if i want to continue or end it.

My first chapter is 23 pages, my second is planned to be... 23. Not on purpose, it just depends on what the chapter does. I know I'll have a few very long chapters (going in exess of 50 pages if my written script is anything to go by), but we'll worry about that when we reach it.

Well my chapter 1 will be 31 and all others will be 19-22 depending on artistic view. Really sticking to standard manga format just as a personal preference

My only completed chapter was 40 pages exactly. And judging by how Chapter 1 is going, it will probably be around that length, maybe more. It depends on how many pages are needed to complete the 'goal' of that chapter.

My first chapter was 25 pages! Chapter 2 will most likely either have the same amount or more :o

i dont make chapters, but episodes, like mangas. i think it is better to do a complete control..... think there is one plot that continue in it. but you can cut it to some episodes by several climax, parts or ect. it can make you upload it more comfying, and ending a episode on cliff hanger moment would make readers being curious about next part. truly i think about over 20 or 30 for a line of plot, but i cut episode as this way. but truly its not persuable cause i upload each page when i finish it......

I aim to keep my chapters inside of 28 pages so that if I did a print run I could print each chapter in 32 pages (counting front and back covers/inside covers). It' s just an arbitrary thing I'd like to do as a nod to printed comics that tend to release in 32-page books (although usually for them there's a decent chunk of ads). When I write a chapter I basically limit myself to 4-5 scenes, since usually I can get that scene over with inside of 5 pages themselves.

I'd say this is the way to go. I wish the length of my chapters was story-driven, but I keep aiming for a possible print release one day, so I'm trying to design my chapters to be 25-ish pages long. It's not THAT difficult and I WOULDN'T say that this is an unnatural, non-organic division, but still... I fear that one day I will stumble upon a story that will call for a ten page chapter and I'll be in deep shit 8-)

It depends on what I want to tell. Sometimes I'll go for a single page, sometimes 4-5 pages will be enough, but I usually use 12-16 pages.

I know, I know, so far I haven't published anything, but that's because I'm highly unsatisfied with how it looks ; I'll try to rework some stuff and see what I can come up with.

Hhm. I'm adapting novel type writing to comic form and at the moment I'm looking at 70 pages in the prologue chapter.
Probably around the same amount to over a hundred per chapters after that.

But my source material wasn't written to be a comic exactly, so the story telling isn't necessarily super economic.
It's a lot, but at least I'm having fun! And that's the most important thing. (when it's not paying your bills.)
