It sometimes takes a lot of time to find a genuine comic book site, where you can actually read comic books online for free. Some of us don't have a fortune to blow on the latest issues each month!
Instead we end up reading through forums, spending a lot of time searching and skipping through endless advertisements - sometimes not even finding the comics we like.
If you love Marvel and their famous comics, like The Avengers, Thor, Wolverine, Deadpool, Spiderman, Iron Man, Captain America and more, the best place to read them would be on Marvel.com.
They have over 20,000 comics you can read. You'll never run out of stuff to read. You can read your favorites on your computer, Android or iOS. You can even save 12 comics on your mobile to read later.
You could start off with some of their free issues, and later on if you'd like to get your own Marvel Unlimited subscription you can do so for just $9.99/month or $69 per year (which will cost you only $5.83 per month).
Unfortunately, there is no such thing as DC Comics Unlimited like there is with Marvel. There is a kid-friendly site that features tons of comics for the younger audiences. You can read your favorites, including Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman. This site is perfect for young comic book enthusiasts, and although the site doesn't offer a huge selection of comics, the ones that they have are great.
You can find Manga, Indie, Graphic novels and some of the most popular classics on their website.
There are tons of comics that you can read for free, but if you want to have unlimited access to their comics, you can subscribe to ComiXology Unlimited for only $5,99/month, and get access to over 10,000 graphic novels, comics and manga anywhere you go.
Create your free or paid account today and enjoy their awesome selection.
Comic Book Plus offers a big selection of comics, comic strips, and pulp fiction. All of their content is free and you can read and download it at any time. You can even find non-English sections on their website.
DriveThru Comics have been selling print-on-demand and digital comic books, fiction and roleplaying games since 2001.
They have a wide selection of creators and publishers, and offer a lot of free comic books both from indie and major publishers.
You can easily create an account at Digital comic museum and download all of their comic books for free. Their goal is to make comics widely available, and therefore all of their Golden Age Comics are free of charge.
Their site is set up primarily for download, so if you want to read a comic book instead of downloading it you can simply click the preview button.
You can find lots of TV spin-offs and humor comics on their site, but what you won't find are the latest popular comics.
Comic Blitz has a great deal of indie publishers, and although it doesn't have any Marvel, DC or Image comics it makes up for it in incredible indie comics like Dynamite, Valiant and Valiant Classic, IDW, and Zenoscope.
They offer two subscription plans: free and unlimited.
You will have access to all web, desktop and iOS features with free subscription and can read their free issues, or you could subscribe to their unlimited plan for $7.99/month and read as much as you want, wherever you want.
You can find so much more than free comics and comic books on Newsarama.
Newsarama is where sci-fi enthusiasts and comic book fans can read the latest news, discuss theories and speculations and talk about their favorite comic books, characters, games, movies and so much more.
ElfQuest has more than 20 million comics and graphic novels and is one of the longest running independent graphic novel series in the States.
They have a free online archive of over 7000 vintage art and stories. You can even order their books or listen to their podcast, all of which is available on their website.
The Internet Archive is a non-profit digital library that provides access to web pages, books, audio recordings and videos, images and software programs.
Among the 11 million books that they offer you can also find a big selection of digital comic books.
The best news it that it's all for free. You can create a free account and look for your favorite comics, or even upload media of your own.
That's about it! These are the top 10 best and most reliable sites where you can read or download your favorites. You can read comics directly on some of these sites, while some will require you to create an account first. Don't worry it won't take more than 2 minutes of your time.
I hope I helped narrow your search a bit, so that you don't spend hours trying to find a way to read your favorite comics for free. Although most of these sites' free subscriptions won't give you access to the latest issues, you'll still be able to choose between a huge selection of available comics that will keep you busy for hours.
