Comics aren’t just for newspapers and comic book stores anymore.

The Internet has a global audience so most artists and illustrators start by sharing their comics online through image-focused social media sites, comic indexes, or sites that let them publish their work or even host their own sites.

We’ve found some of the best places around the web to find comics of all different styles and genres.

Webcomics run the gamut from silly, cartoony, realistic, gritty, philosophical, cynical, family-friendly, or downright strange (in a good way).

Whether you love to immerse yourself in long complex stories, or if you just want a couple quick panels for a chuckle, you’ll find plenty of sites to peruse and keep you entertained.

Reddit /r/comics

Subreddit /r/comics

Browse Reddit

Reddit is a gold mine of information. Or a rabbit hole, depending on how you look at it.

There seems to be a subreddit for everything, even art. So of course there’s a sub dedicated to comics and fans of comics!

With over one million subscribers this subreddit gets a huge influx of both popular and newer, more obscure comics with lots of discussion to go with them.

You’ll find some great stuff right away if you check out what’s new or hot right now on the subreddit, but the home page moves fast. Try sorting by “Top” and “All time” to see the top posts for the past week/month/year.

This sub encourages artists to post their own work, so you’ll find all kinds of new stuff too. If you’re thinking of getting into drawing comics yourself this is also great place to post.

As with any community, be a pal and make sure to read the rules before you post or comment.

To browse comics and find tons of artists to follow simply type “webcomics”, “comics”, or other terms like that into the search bar.

Tumblr tends to work better for shorter strips rather than longer graphic novel style stories. But it’s a great way to discover new artists you may not find elsewhere.

Play with different search terms to narrow down your results. For example, try typing in the genre or style you’re looking for with the keyword “comic” or “webcomic”.

Example: funny comics, goofy comics, etc.

Play around with searching different genres and styles to find something you might like.
