what kind of advice are you looking for? is this going to be a webcomic or a printcomic? whole books have been written about the making of comics (see: making comics by scott mccloud, or any of the educational series from will eisner), so we need an idea of where to begin.

what exactly do you need to know?
Its gonna be a webcomic
I need help with where I could upload my comic to and is it even interesting enough to even bother with it?

any concept can be interesting or boring--it's entirely in how you tell it. your art is pretty enough to catch readers, so your job of keeping readers will be a bit easier.

as to where you can upload it, there's any number of places. you can post on tumblr (here's a comic that manages it effectively: http://albacomic.tumblr.com/ ) or use comicpress on a wordpress site ( http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/create-wordpresspowered-webcomic-comicpress/ ) which is what i do, actually. there's a stack of other places too, like comicfury and smackjeeves and drunk duck.

you should come back and show us your comic too, when its up. best of luck!

This. We'll never know whether it's interesting or not until we see it, so you might as well go ahead with it. The trick, OP, is whether you find it interesting. Because if you love it, then you're bound to put enough effort into it so that others will love it. You'll try hard at making the characters engaging, you'll make the most of your story, and you'll work to make your art even better (already looks fantastic though, but we all have little things we'd like to perfect).

And for the hosting, I'd like to back up the support for Smack Jeeves. I mean, you can use whatever you want, but I've found SJ to be the most user-friendly of the ones I've tried.
