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.
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.
ComicFury is a publishing site and community that allows artists to share their comics and even get critiques in the forums.
It’s a pretty basic site which makes it easy to search and find new stuff in different styles and genres. You can even search “random” to discover some wildcards you might not have come across otherwise.
Search what’s popular now, or highly rated comics, or comics that have been updated recently.
Also make sure to check out the forums for interesting discussions on art-related topics, but be sure to read the rules before posting or commenting. (You know, standard web etiquette.)
Created to help comic fans keep track of all the different comics they read, Comic Rocket is an indexing tool that allows users to bookmark their favorite comics in one place for easy access.
Unlike some of these other resources, Comic Rocket doesn’t actually host the comic. Instead it sends readers and traffic directly to the artist’s site so they get all the benefits of undiluted traffic. Pretty cool right?
You can effortlessly keep track of your favorite comics and save your place, all while helping out the artists.
Comic Rocket is crowdsourced so users can even submit info about new comics they find on other sites.
You can use Comic Rocket to find new comics and keep track of the ones you like. It also gives you recommendations based on the comics you’ve saved.
Here’s another popular image sharing site where you might not have thought to look for comics. Bet let me say they are definitely on here!
Tons of artists share their work on Instagram along with other fun tidbits about their lives.
You can follow individual artists, specific hashtags, or accounts that repost comics from different artists (this is an easy way to get automatic exposure to new comics, by the way).
To find comics just search related hashtags in the search bar such as #webcomics, #comics, #comicstrip, #comicseries, etc.
Play around with searching different genres and styles to find something you might like.
There’s no shortage of amazing webcomics out there but finding and keeping up with the ones you love can feel impossible.
Hopefully these sites will streamline your search, provide easy access to great comics, and help you to connect with and support the incredible artists who make your favorite comic series.
