We like these sites, and hope you’ll find something worthwhile yourself.


Bear Alley – If you want information on an old British comic, the chances are you’ll find something about it on Stephen Holland’s brilliantly informative site.

The Grand Comics Database – A glorious attempt to index every comic ever. Want to know credits for an individual comic? Or where a story with a particular title has appeared? This is the place to go.

Lambiek Comiclopedia – Want to learn more about a particular creator? The chances are this fantastic Dutch site will be able to help.



The Comics Reporter – There can’t be many more informative sites that that of former Comics Journal editor Tom Spurgeon, and the many pages have a wealth of well-considered comment.

Down the Tubes – The emphasis is on British comics history, but that’s not exclusive to this site run by former Marvel UK editor John Freeman.

Fantasy Advertiser – The long-running British zine is now curated online by Slings and Arrows contributors Tony Keen and Will Morgan.

Now Read This – Win Wiacek contributes to Slings and Arrows, and also writes far more detailed reviews on his own site.

Paul Gravett – Is there anybody more knowledgeable, informative and enthusiastic about independent, small press and foreign language graphic novels than Paul Gravett? We don’t think so.


Publishers & Creators

In order to maintain our independence it wouldn’t be fair to link to some publishers or creators without linking to every publisher or creator. These links are easily located via search engine.
