}} Webcomics (also known as online comics or Internet comics) are comics published on a website. While many are published exclusively on the web, others are also published in magazines, newspapers or in books.

Webcomics can be compared to self-published print comics in that almost anyone can create their own webcomic and publish it. Readership levels vary widely; many are read only by the creator's immediate friends and family, while some of the largest claim audiences well over one million readers.<ref name=PWFeb2012>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref><ref name=ComicsAllianceOct2012>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref><ref name=USATodayOct2011>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=news }}</ref> Webcomics range from traditional comic strips and graphic novels to avant garde comics, and cover many genres, styles and subjects.<ref name="CCP">{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref> Only a select few are financially successful.<ref name="attitude3">{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=book }}</ref>
