Editor’s Dispatch: Happy First Birthday, Comics Kingdom!!!

By Tea Fougner


Sound the Trumpets to Celebrate One Year of Comics Kingdom!

This week is the one year anniversary of ComicsKingdom.com!

We’d had an amazing year full of site improvements and upgrades, plus the debut of fantastic new comic strips – like the wonderful Intelligent Life! We’ve also had many newRoyal members join the Kingdom – welcome to all!

Behind the scenes in the Kingdom, we’ve been adding many exciting new features to the site, such as:

Buy Stuff: Just in time for the holidays, turn all your favorite comic strips into keepsakes that will last a lifetime! Nearly all of our comics and archives are available for purchase on mugs, tee shirts, and other quality merchandise. Click here for more details on the easy way to purchase comics merchandise.

Search: Thousands of your favorite comics have been tagged with phrases that make it easy to browse for themes or keywords. It is easy to search – just use the Search box in the right hand side of your desktop or click the magnifying glass on your mobile device.

 Increased Social Media Activity: Comic fans can still follow Comics Kingdom on Facebook and Twitter, and recently we debuted a new Comics Kingdom Tumblr, full of special and unique comic images!

5-Day-A-Week Blog Posts: We’ve also had a blast with our new 5-day-a-week blog posts: Monday is Editor’s Dispatch, Tuesday is Top Ten, Wednesday is Ask a Cartoonist, Thursday is Ask the Archivist, and Friday is News Around the Kingdom. You can filter by category by clicking the tag on the top of each blog post.

 Newsletter Upgrade: Want an easy way to stay up to date with Comics Kingdom? Sign up for our newsletter! Once a week you will receive straight to your inbox: a round-up of our best blog posts, special announcements, behind-the-scenes peeks at the King Features offices and much more! We just updated our newsletter so it is even easier to read – on mobile devices or on your desktop!


We’ve update our RSS feed so that you never miss a blog post. Look for the link at the bottom of any article. What’s more, we’ve added a second RSS feed for Today’s Comic. There are fun things planned for that feed in the New Year. In the meantime, you can follow along and get Today’s Comic free every day in your RSS reader or aggregator of choice.

Improved Prints Checkout: Soon it will be even easier to buy prints of any of our comics!  If someone you know has a particular favorite comic strip or there’s a comic that makes you think about a special somebody every time you see it, you can buy a beautiful archival print to display – we will let you know when this feature is ready!

Mobile Device Support: We have designed ComicsKingdom.com to look beautiful on your mobile device – the website is reliable, quick-loading, and the responsive design lets the site show up easily whether you are viewing with an Android, iPhone, or other screen size. In light of this development, we will be moving to discontinue support for the DailyINK apps. Please contact support if you have any questions about this change.  

As always, we love hearing feedback from comic fans on how we can continue to improve and expand our service, and you can always contact us with questions, concerns, or suggestions – our contact form is here.

 Thank you for being a part of the inaugural year of ComicsKingdom.com. It’s been a great year with so much more to come!
