On this blog you will find compilations i made myself from Public Domain Comics from the Golden Age.

I did not scan them myself, only compiled them into compilations.
All compilations will have information in it also, like artists and descriptions on the characters.
There will be many different compilations in due time, i started with characters, but later i will also make compilations that are theme related, like vampires, cowboys, and artist related.
I made compilations with unkown characters like Big Red McLane, Bronc Peeler, Eagle Evans and Senorita Rio, but also with more known Golden Age Characters like Buck Jones, Captain Easy, Daredevil, the Spirit and Tom Corbett.

harvey2The compilations vary in size from 8.67 mb. on to 506 mb. and from 20 pages on to 9304.
You will see at the downloadpages how large the file is. All files are downloadable from different
filesharingsites.
I view the books with CDisplay which you can download here : CDISPLAY
But i am sure you can view them with other comicreaders also.

Please let me know if there is something wrong with a compilation or when you see some
errors in the information so i can correct these.

Now and then i will update existing compilations because i still find new comics to use and so i can further complete an compilation, when that is the case i will remove the old link and replace it with a new one and let you know in a comment which compilation is updated.

As mentioned before, all the comics are Public Domain, if you think that something on this blog isn’t Public Domain, please let me know and i will check it out and remove all of the content that really isn’t Public Domain.

Most of the comics i found on these 2 sites :   cookie2

Digital Comic Museum

Comic Book Plus

And offcourse

The Internet Archive

You will also find information about publishers from the Golden Age.

If you are looking for issues of “normal” comics, you won´t find them on this blog.
You can find these comics on plenty other sites, Usenet or on torrents.

You will find some other comicrelated books also, for instance, Big Little Books.
These will be the original ones, so no compilations, but only those who are in the public domain.

For golden age and other comics, not only public domain, i can recommend these sites :

Komics Live

Amader Forum

More then heroes

TehParadox

Kaskus

Old Comics World

All In One

Indrajal Online

Books and Comics

Fury Comics

These sites were very helpfull in finding information.

Wikipedia

Lambiek Net

Comics Org

Comic Vine Com

    thanks for checking

    yes used your link on the intro page

    tried it again and more than heroes is still not working

    it did come back online briefly but seems to be gone again

    it has been off for quite a number of days

    it was a very good site

    hope it comes back

    if anyone knows anything please let me know

    thanks again

    No problem, you are welcome.
    Thank you also, i had never heard of George Carlson and now i have.
    With storytitles like : The brass-buttoned baron and the clock-less cuckoo ; The rocketeering doodlebug and the selfwinding horse-fly ; The three young jimcracks and their parsley-plated steam-roller, he encouraged me to read his stories, and i was not disappointed.

  5. boutje777 says:

    You are welcome.
    I think you are right, and probably have to pay quite some bucks for it also.
    Don’t hesitate to request again, i don’t mind working on request also. Right now i’m just doing what crosses my mind and seems to be fun to compile.
    I’m in the process of finishing compilations from old British comics now, might not al be in the public domain, but i will see what comes out of it. (Some more Captain Marvel also, although most stories will be the same as the US stories, only in black and white)

  6. boutje777 says:

    That’s not really a subject that i will enjoy doing, and i only do compilations that i enjoy doing.

  7. boutje777 says:

    I knew what you ment, i suppose. But i still don’t like the idea of making a compilation from him, just like i don’t fancy making compilations about Mussolini, Stalin, Lenin, Nixon and others, for me it feels like some sort of tribute, but that’s just something personal.

  8. boutje777 says:

    Yes, thanks, that seems like a good idea, i will go see what information on comics i can find about these sort of figures.

  9. boutje777 says:

    I am not sure about Firefox, i can download them with no problems with Explorer and Google Chrome. I made 2 mirrors for both Indians and Fairy Tales on Adrive, perhaps these works better with Firefox.

  10. boutje777 says:

    I use cdisplay myself and have no problems with reading books well over 500mb, perhaps it has to do with the configuration also. You can try ComicRack perhaps, works great also with me.

    COMICRACK

    Maybe someone else can recomment another reader ?

  11. boutje777 says:

    You are welcome, more to come, in total 94. I plan to put 5 UK compilations on the blog every day the next 2 weeks.

  12. boutje777 says:

    Good to have you back again also, sometimes the internet can be annoying, i hope you’re troubles are over now conceirning these blockings. Only problem i have sometimes with WordPress is the speed.

  13. boutje777 says:

    Thanks, yes you can leave a link in a comment of you like.

    • You sir are amazing!!! You are a blessing in disguise. Like I said, I got a few of the monster times magazines and others last year from the magazines blog. And I went back a couple weeks ago to look for more and it was gone. Ive been searching this week for similar sites and nothing and then I found this and now, Magic! I cant thank you enough. My project is something for this generation against drinking and driving and other negative things. Im using art and humor but also seriousness. Ive used images I found in magazines from the thrift stores, swap meets and your sources. Its http://www.realg.org, and my other site of my art of digital collages of stuff is http://www.dougalcala.com. If you ever need or want artwork for yourself or your site or want some of my art, hit me up and Ill hook you up for free.
      Thank you, Take Care and Have a good day!

    • boutje777 says:

      You are welcome.
      Thanks for the links to your sites, i will visit them soon. Those projects sounds very good to me.
      I will keep your offer in mind.
      Take care also.

    Grande Boutje!! You Are back. Just round the new site.i am andrea from italy,remember? I like tris site and tomorrow i willbegin to’ download. Wish the best!, ciao

  15. Robb Macc says:

    Thanks again for the hard work! It seems that whenever I thank you, I have a request. And, yes, I do again. I’d like to download the Basil Wolverton and Jack Kirby collections in the Artists section, but the download options require me to register, which I’d rather not do. Can these be put on a file-sharing service that doesn’t require registering? If you can’t I fully understand, and thank you again for this incredible archive!

  16. Robb Macc says:

    Again…thank you for all of this…wow…u do the work for all of us…

    I just found this site. It’s cool, but I was one of the lucky ones who found your old site in time. I knew it couldn’t last forever, so I spent so much time at work and at home downloading everything I could. I started reading comics in the sixties when I was 8 or 9 and always loved them. Your old blog let me grab all the Marvel and DC I wanted – just about every main title from issue # 1 up through 1986. I didn’t really care for many of the things that came out later. Anyway I ended up with about 6 or 7 thousand comics. I have always wanted to thank you so much for everything you did to make that possible!

    • boutje777 says:

      Hello, nice to read your comment. You are very welcome. Most of the comics from the old sites are still available for download via Usenet also if you have a subscription.
      6 or 7 thousand comics is a lot to read. I have around 5000 comics in real, mostly from the 60′s and 70′s, many of them i have read but, there are also that i just wanted for the keep. Last week i got rid of around 400 “normal” books, i had to choose which ones to keep, i don’t have the space anymore to keep them.
      I allready have 8 small and 1 big bookcase everywhere around the house.
      Digitally it will take alot less space, possibly a few dvd’s, but i think that still nothing can beat the feeling of reading a real book.

      • Skip Morris says:

        I agree. Nothing beats a real book! I recently attended my first Comic Con in Dallas and picked up a few Silver Age for a few dollars each. I don’t collect to invest, so the fact that they were not in great condition is fine. It is just nice to read them. I will look into the Usenet subscription. There are still some more I would like to grab. Thanks again!

    I like real books, but I actually find reading comics on the computer better than real comic books in my hand. I can see the pictures better with the bigger scans. these days they scan them really well..

  20. boutje777 says:

    Happy holidays everyone, updating will be continued early next year.

  21. Donald says:

    Thanks for the recent compilations, good work

  22. boutje777 says:

    For everybody who visit this blog.
    ——————————————–

    I am stopping with this blog.

    The main reason is that 2 friends who does alot of the work for me like splitting the comics into stories, searching which story belongs where and compile them, doing the typework, are stopping because they have other interests and too little time to continue with this.

    I myself don’t have the time to do all this also, besides making the covers, and bringing them together, do the uploading and providing the links.
    I also have my old records blog, which i intend to continue, and have a regular job where they want to see my face once in a while ;)
    I also am planning to move to another home later this month, so that will be some extra work also in the coming weeks, if not months.

    So i have to decide to stop, but i will comeback with another blog with public domain comics somewhere this year. It will be a sort of my old comicsworld blog but only with public domain comics, and none other than that. I have to look for a site to place them, i think it’s gonna be the internet archive because i don’t know sites that are free and where you can share tons of gigabytes for free.

    I will place the compilations that are allready done in the next weeks and leave the
    blog open for awhile.

    Sorry to see you pulling the plug. It was fun while it lasted

    • boutje777 says:

      Thanks, i agree, it was fun, but as i said it’s too much work for a man alone to keep up. But i will be back with regular public domain comics and offcourse information regarding these comics later this year.
      And i still have some left to finish and a bunch to upload and share, so the updates will continue for awhile.

  25. venkit.s. says:

    Do you plan to share your compilations with DCM or CBP so that they remain there for posterity?

  26. unik says:

    digital comics museum http://digitalcomicmuseum.com/ http://comicbookplus.com/
    good idea please save your work before you take the blog down.

    • boutje777 says:

      I will see if i can contact the owners of the site because they have no compilations on their site and also because i have around 100gb of compilations and that might be too many gb’s to upload to their site.

  27. Randy says:

    Actually DCM does have collections. See: http://digitalcomicmuseum.com/index.php?cid=962
