Hi megazone - welcome to both Comical and the forum!
I didn't see it mentioned, but Comical just got covered on Tekzilla Daily
Oh wow, awesome! I didn't know about that - thanks for the heads-up!
Kevin & Kell
Red Meat
Shadowgirls
Nukees
Flem Comics
Indexed
Dork Tower
Thanks for the suggestions. They've been added and will be pushed out a few minutes after this post has been made (just fixing a couple of broken comics already in Comical).

I've added a Suggest Comic(s) feature for the next version, so it should be quicker. :)

Oh, yeah - don't forget to hit F7 within Comical to grab the newest database.

One more request: http://widgetitis.com

And a request-in-advance - Eerie Cuties is getting a spin-off this month, see http://www.eeriecuties.com/d/20101229.html The new site is http://www.magickchicks.com/ - but of course you can't add that until the site is live.

Thank you.

(Is there any way to make it download all the new comics since the last time you downloaded? I normally read daily but sometimes I miss a day and then need to go back to the website to find the missing ones. Unless I'm using it wrong...)

I suggested Erfworld on the 'Suggest a New Comic' option in Comical, but the wrong one got added.
The Erfworld series from Giant in the Playground's site http://www.giantitp.com was added. This series ended.
The current Erfworld series' home is at http://www.erfworld.com/

Both Widgetitis and Magick Chicks have been added.

While Comica does support Catch-Up, a comic needs to specifically have support added for it. Although saying this, the feature needs further tweaking for it to become properly usable.

Ah, right - thanks for the info!

I got the latest DB update tonight and it seems like Applegeeks & Applegeeks Lite got dropped? They jumped to the top of my list and the icon is now a folder icon, and the normal functionality is gone. But there was nothing in the release notes with the update about a change to these comics, and they're still out there. Glitch?

I'm afraid so. I got a report saying that they both ended; I checked out the site and forum and it appears the comic authors have bailed (last updated on the 24th November, 2010) and no-one knows what's happening with it any more.

I'll add them back should any new strips appear.

If a comic folder within the archive location doesn't correspond to a comic within the database, it is treated as though it was something the user had imported within Comica for viewing. That is, Comica will just act like an image viewer for that folder. If that makes any sense.
But there was nothing in the release notes with the update about a change to these comics
They were removed in either release #137 or #138, with their removal reason being Ended. I definitely should add an online database history so everything can be tracked.
