The comics are updated daily, presented in full color and packaged together in one open destination supported by advertising. The website also connects to cartoonists' blogs, behind-the-scenes reveals and special artwork.
Visitors looking for the perfect gag to send to a friend or loved one can search for comics by keyword. For example, searching for "baseball" will bring up comics strips that mention baseball. Once they locate their desired comic, users can share it through email or social media, order a gallery-quality framed print, and even place it on a variety of items from t-shirts to mugs to iPhone cases.
