Virtual Newsstand Displays Comic Books by Date

If you’re a comic book aficionado (or just want to take a stroll down memory lane), this virtual newsstand shows you all the comics published for any month and year going all the way back to the 1930s.

Courtesy of Mike’s Amazing World of Comics, the virtual newsstand lets you dial in a month, year, sorting style, and shows all publishers or select publishers. The covers are displayed in a grid where you can click through to see a larger version of the cover and read additional information about the comic. It’s a really neat way to check out trends in comic design and artwork over the years.

Hit up the link below to take it for the spin. Have a cool comic book resource to share? Sound off in the comments.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    Like many before her, and since, my mother simply threw out my five or six boxes of well preserved si/fi comix… Said something like, “when you went to college, I knew you’d never read that junk again..” So, all you collectors can thank mom for driving up the prices of those that survived.

    Same here. Mom tossed them when I joined the navy. Oh well.
