The app it self is pretty cool, but I'm not an ultra-nerd and I don't know how to add a comic using rss or something.... I checked the help section and it didn't say anything.

I prefer Comictastic to iComic. Comictastic provides a great interface to view all of your favorite comics. Keep up the good work!

May I suggest iComic. A preferable alternative - fast, simple, good interface and FREE!

As long as we're suggesting free alternatives, I would suggest ACMEReader. It is more powerful than iComic and in active development. And it too is free.

What's with this "wannabe" crap? They're called options people. Options are a good thing. Especially since this is a robust and well supported program.

Personally, I prefer the aqua theme to the brushed metal theme in this case. But that is just a minor aesthetic preference.

I love this program! It is shareware, people! That means you only have to pay if you can't live without it, which means I really should pay the $15. That is a bargain if you ask me.

Its true that Comictastic does not support the big syndicated comics but that's because those guys have lawyers. It only takes a few seconds to add any comics you want, so I don't see what the problem is.

Comictastic rulez!

Not bad, but this app sucks cause it's so slow downloading the comics. Also when it first came out it had a good selection that just kept on changing every update. Interface is ugly too. I prefer iComic - beautiful brushed metal interface, fast, automatically resizes windows and a calendar so you can check on back-issues.
