Until 2012/02/07 when Zits was removed we haven't a problem getting Zits daily.
Extracting "http://www.arcamax.com/zits/" from
<Definition Name="Zits" PublisherUrl="http://www.arcamax.com/" LatestComicUrl="http://www.arcamax.com/zits/" Rating="Everyone" ComicImage="/newspics/.+\.(jpg|png|gif)$" />
and pasting it in browser address box takes me to
and I get to read today's comic.
Copying the url location of today's comic image gets me this:
Editing and pasting this back into comics.xml
<Definition Name="Zits" PublisherUrl="http://www.arcamax.com/" LatestComicUrl="http://www.arcamax.com/thefunnies/zits/" Rating="Everyone" ComicImage="/newspics/.+\.(jpg|png|gif)$" />
and everything is fine.
Is this in correct form? Will it continue to work?

The comic's site was unreachable for a few days here, so I ended-up removing it. Although I think the domain within Comica was http://www.zitscomics.com/ as opposed to the Arcamax one.What happened?
I've just given the original domain another test and it seemed to work so I've added it back in.
The definition itself is fine, although ensure that you only add them to the ComicsUser.xml file (copy the existing Comics.xml file, rename it to ComicsUser.xml, remove all definitions contained within it, and then add your own) as Comica never overwrites it. Comics.xml is overwritten on every database update.Is this in correct form? Will it continue to work?
Saying that, the entry I've added to the official database provides a hi-res version of the image strip; if you leave the entry as-is, you won't need to do anything as it'll get overwritten when you next update.
I'll add a new sticky that'll go in-depth on why comics are removed and how to get them added again.
