Free Comics in 12 Languages

Comic Book Plus is a site that hosts out-of-copyright comics. I just found out that they have comics in 12 languages: Arabic, Catalan, Dutch, French, German, Hindi, Hungarian, Italian, Filipino, Portuguese, Romanian, and Spanish. I know that these comics are old but I hope they will be of interest to some of you.

Check it out here: https://comicbookplus.com/?cid=1514

Happy learning!

Thanks for sharing this! What a fantastic site. My only complaint is that I can't pluck these comics off the screen, and sit down by the wood stove and read them. My laptop will have to do.

You could have a picture of the wood stove as your desktop background. :-)

It appears you can register for free and download them. From there, you could print them out.

Still not the same as a comic book.

Btw thank you, apainintheneck! Ha ha, I didn't pay attention to your username until I had to write it out. Cheers!

Ya, I agree. It would be cool if we could access the comics in real life.

September 5, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DogKnife

Why not print them yourself? That way you can always make a new copy in case of an errant coffee spill.

Thank you so much for sharing this link!

I will definately be practising my reading with these. It makes it much easier when you can see the illustrations because you can understand easier what is happening, even if you can't read all the words.

This is very neat, and this may help also! It’s a heartwarming wecoic series called Pepper and Carrot, and it comes in multiple languages for foreign readers. Due to it being meant for native speakers through, it may be a bit advanced though. But all in all, the comics are adorable! I thought I’d share here. https://www.peppercarrot.com/en/article234/potion-of-flight

If someone need a modern comic in German I recommend this one http://www.sandraandwoo.com/woode/2008/10/19/ein-ausgefuchster-waschbar/ and if German is too difficult there is an english version too :)

I do some graphic design work for a local podcast that runs out of a comic shop, so this has an added benefit for me - I can scope out cool comics to use as stock photos for graphics. Thank you so much!

THANK YOU! Now, any suggestions for a Spanish comic to start with? There are SO many listed, and I'm not really a comic book reader, but I love to read.

September 6, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/apainintheneck

I haven't read that much yet but I'm enjoying one called Historia y Leyenda. It features history and legends from Spain.

You also can go check the link provided here by April465 ( https://www.gocomics.com/comics/espanol ). There are many comic stripes there... Those usually are a good starting point because they are short and easy to check and/or discard if level or interest don't suit you.

¡Este también en un enlace excelente! Aunque ojalá también tuvieran historietas en otros lenguajes.

Does anyone have any recommendations for French comics?

September 5, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MadameSensei

The French love comic books. The two classics that I read to my students are Asterix le Gaulois (very easy, and lots of fun adventure), and Tintin (very wordy, but non-stop action). There are lots of other good ones, like Yoko Tsuno, Zombilennium, Boule et Bouff... tons of others. And there are lots of translations of manga. But start with those two tried-and-true ones.

September 5, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HawwahResurgam

To be precise, Tintin is actually a Belgian comics.

September 5, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MadameSensei

Yes, you are right. :) I meant "in French."

It is just the adverstasing, why do the other people like this? They love spam?

September 7, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/cartergraysons

This actually isn't spam, but okay then.

September 8, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/YutYut2

Actually it is. Lets everyone start posts like this and the forum becomes a market, where people don't have conversations, but only promote something.

September 9, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Foblin

Spam is unwanted while this fits here because it's another way to improve people's languages skills.

Also, go check by yourself: not everyone is starting posts like this (and not everyone will) and the forums are not becoming a market.

did you want someone to actually answer that question? or was it rhetorical?

These comics can actually help people learn their target language.
