Free Golden Age Comics

A quick fyi for the comic fan: A newish website, The Digital Comic Archive, opens up free access to public domain Golden Age Comics, which fell into kids’ hands from the late 1930s until the early 1950s. You won’t find here the big name comics from the period (Superman, Batman, Captain America, Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel, etc). But that shouldn’t stop you from giving the archive a good look. There are still a lot of golden comics to rummage through.

To get started, simply register for an account and then start sifting and downloading the texts. The downloading part can be a little tricky in some cases. So please visit their FAQs if you run into any problems. Happy reading…

    The period saw the arrival of the comic book as a mainstream art form, and the defining of the medium’s artistic vocabulary and creative conventions by its first generation of writers, artists, and editors.
