Web Comic Portals

I can't turn around for tripping over more more web comics portals. Each one hosts more material than the average person wants to follow, and most of them are seriously laden down with crap. There is very little specialization by genre: everyone has super heroes, elves, humor, and the rest.

The community is seriously fractured. Even a comics enthusiast like me takes a while to discover some of the major sites.

What's needed are sites of merit, by genre. Sites dedicated to a particular style, with hosted comics chosen by merit. This is the only way I can see to put comics out in front of less committed readers and build the readership base.

Portal links to explore. There are more on the Jan. 31 blog entry.
