Comic Strips


(Teach your kids how to make games just
like these with my step-by-step manual. )

No longer confined to news print and comic books, nearly all your favorite syndicated comic strips can be read online. Many of these sites also offer e-cards, games, comic strips via email, and bios of the cartoonists.




Featuring dozens of cartoonists from United Media, Creators, and Washington Post Writers Group, Comics.com has fresh content daily along with thirty-day archives, e-cards for all occasions, and comics via e-mail subscription. Snoopy (AKA Peanuts) and Dilbert are two of the most popular, and they each have their own complete site, just click on the buttons near the top of the page. Other family favorites include Luann, Heathcliff and Momma. If you’ve ever dreamed of being a cartoonist, take a look at “So You Want to Become a Cartoonist” on the Luann page.




Comic strips from Tribune Media Services include classics such as Gasoline Alley, Annie, Dick Tracy, and Brenda Starr. Along with a ninety-day archive, many of the comics include a reader forum, interactive games, and a bit of strip history. From the front page, site navigation is divided into strips (comics with multiple frames, such as Shoe) and panels (single frame cartoons such as 9 to 5.) Bulletin boards for discussion are available from the entry page, as well as from each cartoon’s main page.

King Features Syndicate: Comics



Arranged alphabetically from The Amazing Spiderman to Zits, King Features Syndicate offers thirty-day archives of dozens of comics. In addition to the dailies and the archive, each comic has a page about the cartoonist, its characters, and the strip’s history. Many of today’s most popular cartoons have endured more than fifty years, and are no longer being drawn by their creators. For example, Dennis the Menace was introduced by Hank Ketcham in 1950. In 1994, the strip was turned over to longtime assistants Ron Ferdinand and Marcus Hamilton, but Ketcham continued to supervise until his death in June 2001.
