How can I share my comix & links?

New Member:
You have to wait until you have reached Bronze level.

Bronze Member:
You can share your links in the appropriate Link Section of the Forum. Please indicate if it's your site or a web find. Short comix (of less than 15 pages) can be uploaded to the Short Comix Section.

Why put a hold on posting comix other than short & paneled? Most likely you will find all those comix in Silver & Gold section. Bronze section is like a training camp for posting comix & the likes so that you're ready when you move up to The Real McCoy & of course to test your patience.

Silver & Gold Member:
You can share in an appropriate Forum Section & we urge you to do so.
