Download old and new Comics of your super heroes or any other character

Everyone knows that the internet is a treasure chest for software, music and videos, but did you know you can find comic books on the web as well? There is a large group of people that scan and upload comics both old and new. This can be a revisiting of one's childhood or the beginning of a new hobby. Finding these is as simple as pulling up Google and letting the hunt begin.

Most comics on the internet have a .cbr or .cbz extension for use with a digital comic reader like CDisplay (Windows) or FFView (MacOS). However you can decompress the files and read them in any image viewer. Simply rename the cbr extension to rar or the cbz extension to zip and decompress with an application such as 7-Zip or WinRAR.

To look for these files, use these searches:

Google: -inurl:htm -inurl:html intitle:"index of" "Last modified" comics cbr
or -inurl:htm -inurl:html intitle:"index of" "Last modified" comics cbz

The extension is sometimes left alone and kept as a rar or zip file.

To look for these files, use these searches:

Google: -inurl:htm -inurl:html intitle:"index of" "Last modified" comics rar
or -inurl:htm -inurl:html intitle:"index of" "Last modified" comics zip

For title specific searches, substitute the title for the word comics in your search.

Examples:
-inurl:htm -inurl:html intitle:"index of" "Last modified" spider-man cbr
and -inurl:htm -inurl:html intitle:"index of" "Last modified" simpsons cbr

While some directories will only contain a few comics, there are others that will keep you reading for weeks and weeks.

Your article was very informative and interesting. I learnt a lot regarding the search tips. :) Thanks a lot!

However, to be in the search list, we need traffic. Firstly, it is not easy developing a site / blog. Then, later on, you need to broadcast to the world. Now, how does one do this? It is neither easy nor a magic wand, as there are so many offers across the internet to promote the same.

However, I came across this website, http://www.whoistopofthelist.com. You can write about your site, post and link, as well as a photo. The service is free.

Please comment.
