I'm amazed Unspeakable Vault of Doom is still missing in the list. :shock:
It should be easy to strip off, since its pages have a very simple layout... ;)

Thanks - added! Hit F6 to grab the new database.

There seems to be something... weird going on with that site.

The URL for the page is http://www.goominet.com/unspeakable-vault/vault/352/, and the URL for the comic image on that page is uploads/tx_cenostripviewer/w116_mushroom.jpg. But in actual fact it turns out the image is really located at http://www.goominet.com/uploads/tx_ceno ... shroom.jpg!

Either I'm missing something obvious or there be voodoo afoot!

@Sabrina-Online

umm excuse me but do we get the Xmas Comics too with that Definition? I ask because the Filename is SabOnXmas not Sabonline.
btw. would be nice if you can get the other Strips of the month too, and yes i know that that need a new feature, just want to point you toward it ;)

I'm not sure I know what you mean - is Comical downloading a comic with Xmas in its filename? At the moment, it should be downloading the comic called "Imagine the camera view". I can't seem to see anything to do with Xmas on the latest comics page.
and yes i know that that need a new feature, just want to point you toward it
It'll be the next big feature that goes in. ;)

What i mean is, that the Filename Changes on every Xmas to "SabOnXmasXX" for the Xmascomic. The standard Comicstrips are indeed with "SabOnlineXX" as Filename. At the last-month-page there is no SabOnXmas Comic now but it will be. (the XX are Numbers)

Ah - gotcha. Thanks for the heads-up; it's been changed for the next database update.

I didn't see it mentioned, but Comical just got covered on Tekzilla Daily: http://revision3.com/tzdaily/2010-11-29comical

So you might be seeing an influx of new users, like myself. Looks like a great application, and you've already listed most of the comics I read.

I'd like to request a few that aren't there yet:
Kevin & Kell: http://www.kevinandkell.com/
Red Meat: http://www.gocomics.com/redmeat/
Shadowgirls: http://www.shadowgirlscomic.com/comics/snowfall/
Nukees: http://www.nukees.com/
Flem Comics: http://flem.keenspot.com/
Indexed: http://thisisindexed.com/
Dork Tower: http://www.dorktower.com/

Thank you.
