April saw Comics Kingdom average adding one web comic per week to their line-up.
Willy Black, The Planet Syndicate, God’s Hands, and, today, Comiclicious.
Tomorrow The Kingdom will start the month of May with another new addition:
Nate Fakes notified fans of his Break of Day panel that beginning May 1, 2023 the comic would be relocating to Comics Kingdom (no direct link at the time of this writing). Break of Day goes back to August 29, 2011 on GoComics archive. Whether those dozen years will be transferred to Comics Kingdom or stay at GoComics remains to be seen.
Comics Kingdom announced it on their Facebook page. And on Twitter.
Nate tells The Daily Cartoonist:
I’ll have new comics seven days a week, and King’s is considering print syndication (though nothing is confirmed for that at the moment).
Since the last half of 2022 Comics Kingdom has been introducing about one web comic or syndicated comic (through King Features Syndicate) a month. Their seeming effort to catch up to the number of comic strips and panels offered by GoComics (around 500?) has accelerated this Spring.
Whereas Nate’s effort to break out of GoComics’ madding crowd would explain his signing with the other team. It is hard to stand out being one of five hundred.
Then again maybe King Features’ recent hiring of John Glynn (“John will help with creator relations and feature development”) has something to do with the recent flurry of activity and acquiring a GoComics panel.
GoComics had been adding to their web comic roster last year with Day by Dave, Bob the Angry Flower, Curses, Jerry King Comics, Tex, Home Free, and Globetrotter, but none this year that am aware of.

Hey, good for Nate! He’s one of the really good eggs in the business, and his book, “A Fade of Light” is outstanding (disclosure: I wrote a blurb for it).
I have no doubt that John Glynn has something to do with it. He has a unique offbeat comic sensibility and, in my opinion, a great eye. AMU lost a lot when they lost Glynn and editor Shena Wolf.
Did I miss something? When did Shena leave AMU?
