GoComics is a website launched in 2005 by the digital entertainment provider Uclick. It was originally created as a distribution portal for comic strips on mobile phones, but in 2006, the site was redesigned and expanded to include online strips and cartoons. GoComics publishes editorial cartoons, mobile content and daily comics; thus its subtitle toon in daily.

Comics are arranged into feature pages, which display the current comic strip with a 30-day archive, or the entire archive for paying members. Other features such as descriptions of strip characters, biographical information about cartoonists and links to other recommended feature pages are often included as well.

In addition to the contents of the page on the site, users can have strips sent to them by email on a daily basis (for a fee, starting August 29, 2013). Users can also comment on, collect, tag and share their favorite comics.

Some users allege that GoComics either hosts or redirects to malware that pops-up unsolicited full screen advertisements that read “Congratulations Apple User! Your iPad Can Get (1) Amazon $1000 Gift Card!”. The full screen nature of the adverts effectively blocks access to the desired GoComic content, the advert consists of an HTML page at cryptic URL such as “us.ovyo0.date” or “us.86t.date”, and the browser’s back-in-history control arrow functionality is maliciously corrupted to return to same advert page.
