DID YOU KNOW?

Webcomics have been around since well before the world wide web has existed. The history of webcomics is one of the least known histories in the world. A long time ago, back in the 1980s, people only had internet for online file transfers. That means sending emails to each other. And during this time, one couldn't view a picture directly on the email unlike what we all could do today. They had to download the file in order to view the comics in their own computers. This is how the first webcomics were distributed. People had to subscribe to a mailing list, or visit be in Usenet groups to access the comics. The comics that made it into the internet were usually from college students who were studying computer technology, or from artists whose strips got rejected by newspaper companies. This was also the time when publications became more and more conservative with their content. By 1993, the first webcomic, Doctor Fun, was published on the world wide web, which had a website of its own.

With the way technology progressed, we are now in a world where anyone who can draw or write a comic could publish it online. With the different mediums of viewing, different art styles, varying canvas sizes, we have come up with webtoons and even graphic novels. The distribution of comics isn't limited to the published and bounded books anymore. The internet has made the best webcomics accessible to everyone. Nowadays, all new webcomics could be read on our phones, without having to carry a huge computer everywhere we go.

    "XKCD is the top webcomics that exist. Art may be simple and basic but it's absolutely entertaining and random at the same time. Exactly what I'd expect from a NASA guy ;)"
