[edit] Main Page

Do you think there is a way using html (it seems it can't be done with #REDIRECT) on the main page to make the page redirect to [[{{LATESTCOMIC}}]] which directs to 1428?

I don't see why the site needs a separate main page. The header is minimal and can be listed on all pages and the 3 paragraphs at the end would appear as they do currently on the main page.

I don't exactly understand what you're trying to do, but in any case I don't think there is any way to do transclusion (= inclusion of the content of a page into another) or redirection (= loading a page displays another page instead) other than the "wiki" way defined by MediaWiki (= using {{Xxxx}} for transclusion, and #REDIRECT [[Xxxx]] for redirection).
I believe it's useful to keep a main page separated from content pages, and with a different layout. True, at the moment the main page looks simply like a comic page with additional header and footer, but seeing that big footer at the bottom of every very page would be boring I think, and furthermore the layout of the main page could be different...
