GoComics, from Andrews McMeel Universal, 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. GoComics.com is the web's largest catalog of syndicated newspaper strips, political cartoons and webcomics, offering free new content every day.[1][2]

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 of 2016, GoComics had more than 44,000 subscribers worldwide.[2] 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.
