I am starting up a webcomic. Are there good programs out there that assist one with the task? Such as one that you can load up a yet-to-be-released archive of strips and it automatically releasing one a day in the order you specify.

It always helps you have some drawing skill.
There are many free tutorials on the net on how to
draw and design your own characters if you're willing
to put the time into looking for them. The best advice
I can give you is to start with simple ideas. Try designing
characters but try not to copy other people's style. Practice
drawing your characters in different angles and poses.
As you practice you will find your own style and be well on
your way to becoming a comic book artist.

thanks for the advice chanimnya,
i have been designing my own characters and have gone as far as having them in different poses,angles and along with props as well..
but i have difficulty in keeping them exactly the same each time.
i am more of an abstract artist...

I generally find that not keeping them exactly the same every time
is okay. I just make sure that the characters are still recognizable
and the action is understandable in each panel. But if the people I'm
collaborating with are particular with uniformity, I find grid lines generally
useful. I also use poseable action figures to get a general idea of
proportions and perspective. Sometimes I also find useful references in magazines.

I have this one

http://plasq.com/products/comiclife/win

I don't always use it but it has some really useful features and everything you metnion in your post.

It has manga layouts, can create a comic book instantly based on images from a single file, can edit frames, border, fonts, add bubbles you name it.
