Geocities is shutting down this year. Please update any bookmarks you may have. This page will remain here until Geocities shuts down. As of today (June 25, 2009), the above link is to an identical copy, but I may be redoing things in my upcoming redesign of my website. Thank you for your patience.

Comics Links

Online ComicsAbout Comics
These are various sites having to do with comics, either in general or a particular title or creator. Many of them are found in various places on this website, and are consolidated here. Just as many, maybe more, are found only here for now, though they will eventually be integrated into other pages as well.

General Comics Sites

Wraithspace Comix
Hosts the "AAA Ardvark" site below, otherwise devoted mostly to alternative comics
AAA Ardvark (aka the WraithSpace Comics Index)
The best all-round comprehensive comics site.
Jonah Weiland's Comic Book Resources
Another large general comics site.
Cerebus the Gopher
Despite its name, this is not a Cerebus-specific page, but a general comics site that is part of the larger Negative Space.
Negative Space
Comics is only one of the interests of the maintainer of this eclectic, interesting site.
The New Comic Book Releases List Web Site
New comics released this week, a couple of late comic reports, professionals on the 'net, and more.

Beek's Books
Todd's site is much prettier than mine, and he has LOTS of full-size reviews, broken down by category and rated for quality. A very interesting site.
An attempt at building a database of the first appearance of comics magazine characters.

This is an attempt to build something like the famous an popular Internet Movie Database. At the moment, it's still in the building stage, and access to the data is limited to the volunteers helping to build it.

Gallery of Comics
A fellow geocitizen with interesting tastes (Starman, Cerebus and Transformers, among others)
Small Press Zone - Home of Small Press Comics and Zines
Despite the fact that it sounds like an online shop selling comics, it's really a fan page devoted to really tiny comics - most of the stuff reviewed here never showed up at your local comic shop, but some of it is pretty good, at least according to Andy Hamerlinck.
