GoComics is the largest comic portal (newspaper AND webcomics) in the world. And other fun facts.

This week’s sponsor are the wonderful people over at Universal Uclick. As you know, Universal runs GoComics – the largest comics portal in the world. They provide the digital home to the largest number of newspaper comics and a growing number of the most popular web comics on the web. With such a variety of features, GoComics has a sizable devoted and diverse readership that generates billions of page views each year – which in turn generates additional revenue for creators.

One thing I didn’t know until I started poking around today: GoComics has a very sizable social media footprint. Rounding up to the nearest thousand they have 59,000 followers on Twitter, 163,000 Friends (likers??) on Facebook, and 37,000 followers (pinners??) on Pinterest. That’s a lot of exposure for the features on GoComics. And let’s not forget their in-house blog that promotes their creators as well.

I can’t think of any other comic portal/publisher that comes close to those kinds of numbers. So check out Gocomics.

Yeah, but when you think that has Ashley Tisdale 12 million Twitter followers and 22 million Facebook likers, it kind of puts things in perspective.

It’s time to sexy-up “Lio,” Mark. We’ve gotta get those numbers to rise (pun intended).

I don’t think CALVIN AND HOBBES and THE FAR SIDE combined could ever be that sexy, numbers-wise.
