Webcomics are an increasingly popular format for comic artists and creators that should be collected by libraries and archives to both complement and expand existing comics and artist collections.

This article presents both the opportunities and challenges of collecting webcomics materials, situating the argument within the larger context of web archiving and evolving collection practices.
