I want to host a comic on Comic Genesis and I'm right now pricing internet. How many gigs do you need to host a webcomic? Is 10 gigs enough or can you get by on less? Thanks.

To start with, you can get away with a minimal plan because no matter how fantastawesome your comic is, you won't get many visitors to start with, at least not until the word spreads around. Unless you have a prior internet item (such as a blog) with an existing fanbase that will follow you to this webcomic.

The main points I would look for in a host is one that wil let you have control of your domain (so you can move to another host if you need to) and scaleability (you can upgrade your plan / bandwidth without moving servers). 24/7 support isn't as much of an issue because if your comic goes down, it isn't a hugely critical thing so if it is offline for a few hours it isn't a major issue.
