From the Librarian’s Desk: Read Golden Age Comics for FREE

DCM4

The Digital Comic Museum has a digital repository of over 15,000 Golden Age comics. These are all in the public domain, which means they are pre-1959.  This also means that you will not find and big name publishers such as Marvel, or D.C. You will find tons of rare, lesser-known titles and, oh, they’re free to look at! No matter what you’re interests are, there is something to please all comic readers.

The site requires users to register and login in to download files but it is free to register.

Here’s a summary of what you’ll find there:
