Generally curiosity … Most (if not all) of these features are also a part of King Feature’s online service Comics Kingdom; however, in order to view them, one needs to register for an account (albeit for free).

I know that most Washington Post Writers Group cartoons have traditionally been on Comics.com, so in an increasingly digital world, are we eventually going to find all syndicated features available on one or two websites?

Of course, I’m not complaining, as this just makes it easier to enjoy all of the tasty goodies that are available!

Something very nice about both Comics Kingdom and Comics.com that I forgot to mention are their “Zoom” options.

When your local paper doesn’t carry your favourite strips, it’s wonderful being able to read, enjoy, and appreciate them at a reasonable resolution.

comics.com still looks like the Yellow Pages to me (which, I know, is a stupid personal gripe).

I just hope it eventually translates into cash for the creators.

@Mike,

You don’t need to register to see comics on Comics Kingdom – just go to one of the papers that carries it an click on “select a comic”. Registering is an option that allows you to do things like manage favorites. I have several links to CK over on my blog.

@Anne:

My mistake! I signed up so long ago via the Toronto Star (and just have my browser set to remember password) that I didn’t realize you can select a feature directly.

Overall, a nice clean interface with a great selection :)

Does Comics.com have the “How To Explain This To Your Mother” option for each comic? I could use that.
