What are some good public domains for comic strip characters?

I need to research comic book characters and have no idea where to begin.

"Public domain" is a reference to writing/music/art/etc on which the copyright has expired. There are several good websites where you can research the history of various comic strips, including toonpedia. Google "cartoon history" and you'll get a long list of websites that offer lots of good information. The public library is also an excellent source.

You could start by putting specific comic strip characters' names into search engines. There are also a lot of books written about comic strips. You could check them out at your local library.

Go to the public library. You'll find a good deal of information about the history of the comics as well as book that have been written about the art itself.

Google "list of comic strip characters"

I would start by going to comic book stores and asking the clerk about the characters you want to know about. There is a wealth of information there, as well as back issues of the comic. I would also do research on the internet, and public libraries.
