Several days ago we posted an article about Z-Cult FM, a discussion form and BitTorrent tracker for Comics. Since then several readers have E-mailed us requesting information on more sites for online comics downloads. Here is a list of private & public torrent trackers, forums and blogs from which you can download thousands of comic books. Content in these sites range from newest comic books, comic magazines to even old comics from the 1950s and 60s.
