Regarding the single-page vs split page views, one could alternatively  
just use a single svg document with multiple <view> elements (assuming the  
content doesn't have to be moved around).

Basically a structure like this for single-page viewing:

<html>
   <body>
     <img src="comic.svg"/>
   </body>
</html>

and like this for split-page:

<html>
   <body>
     <img src="comic.svg#left"/>
     <img src="comic.svg#right"/>
   </body>
</html>

where the comic.svg looks something like this (the same comic.svg can now  
be used for both single-page and split-page):

<svg viewBox="...">
   <defs>
     <view id="left" viewBox="..."/>
     <view id="right" viewBox="..."/>
   </defs>
   ... comic goes here...
</svg>
