comic book blogsComic books are probably the first things that help us to dream. Through the growing up years, comic books and the capers in them shield us from the harsher realities of the world outside, where there are no superheroes, adventurous reporters, or philosophical dogs. Even when we grow over to more adult forms of entertainment, the magic spell of comics remains.


Most of us might now read them or watch them on TV every day, but who can deny that it does bring back a whiff of the wonder years. But then there are many who follow comic books. After all, the enduring culture of comic books is not due to the kiddie crowd alone. Comic books continue to get fresh leases of life even in this digital age. As these ten comic book websites show, the web has become a portal into the world of comics. Enter this portal and catch up with these ten comic book blogs.

The blog comes straight to the point when discussing graphic novels, manga, and comic books. The opinions expressed might help you pick up the right ones to read. The blunt opinionated pieces take in both the good and the bad in the world of comics. Check out the Comics Classics section for some great recommendations.


Comics in Crisis

This is a simple BlogSpot blog, but I like reading it because it dives into the world of comics and discusses what works and what doesn’t, for instance turning comic books into films. The weekly updated blog also has a poll that you can participate in.

Bleeding Cool

The blog covers comic news and movies based on comics in equal measure. Apart from the regular fare of news, the site is also about gossip and rumors spilling out of the genre. The writing is not neutral but individualistic which makes reading all the inner workings of the comic book industry quite engaging. The forum is the place comic book fans can call their own.


Comic Vine

Comic Vine has quite a few interesting sections that make this colorful site a must visit. The site has set out to build up the world’s largest comic book encyclopedia. You can browse through a long list of List of Comic Book Story Arcs. Comic Vine’s podcasts and videos serve up multimedia entertainment. But for some casual fun, I always head to the Play section where there are quizzes, trivia, and superhero battles to be won.

Chris’s Invincible Super Blog

    Actually I've found a small blog site that I like recently: . It's small for sure; but good articles that I never see on comixology. What do you think?

    Do any of these blogs talk about the defining structures of comics, tools used for their production, practices used by other creators, and industry trends?

      From what I remember, I think some of them do. And then, a few of the sites have forums where one can always discuss and chat.

    I grew up with Robert Crumb's work during the emergence of the Comix Crusade. I'm shocked that i turned out relatively normal after readings those as a kid.

    I am 35 years old and have been a comic fan now for 10 years. I have a one year old son. Rather than read him your typical bed time story's that commercialize the shelves, I choose comic books and he loves them. I even managed to find him a pair of Spider Man sunglasses

    Bleeding Cool and The Comics Journal have superior sites to at least half of the sites suggested above.

    I am betting that your child perhaps is reading a comic right now or at least watching a show based on one. If then point him to these as well as these other three posts based on the colorful world of comics.

    This is a solid list, but the author's final comments suggest to me that he/she either doesn't have children or has no idea what's going on in the world of kids' comic publishing. With the notable exception of Comics Worth Reading, which reviews kids' comics on a regular basis, these sites are focused on material for older teens and adults. Moreover, the content on many of these sites isn't appropriate for kids, and probably wouldn't be of much interest to them. Good Comics for Kids [Broken URL Removed] and The Graphic Classroom ( actually *do* focus on comics for readers under 13. It's a shame the author didn't include them in this article, as they're more useful to parents who want more information about the comics their kids are reading.
