Questions tagged [comics]

For use when asking questions about comics or comic books when a more appropriate specific work tag doesn't exist. For example, if asking about the comics canon of Marvel use this tag but if asking about the specific The Infinity Gauntlet comic use the work tag [the-infinity-gauntlet] instead. Use to either identify the media on a [story-identification] question or disambiguate works where the tag covers the comics and its form in other media.
