Those still interested in iComic can find plugins and discussion here:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/iComic_group/

iComic is open source and the source code can be found here:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/icomic/

If you are a developer please consider picking up it's development (no development has been done for nearly 5 years) and restore it to the great app it was intended to be. Please post your progress in the Yahoo discussion group.

(I'm not the original developer, just someone who loves iComic)

Keep up the great work. I can't wait until the next versions.

And I love the icon.

iComic lets you download the *entire archive* of a comic into your database for later browsing. I don't think Comictastic does that.

I don't know of anything else that does that actually.

I like iComic as I am now able to get my favorit e comic strips that my hometown newspaper no longer prints.

And if you don't like the metal look, I suggest the haxie from Unsanity which will remove the brushed metal look.

Hey, who can beat the price of freeware?

I don't want to sound harsh on this review, but Comicastic is way better. There's no doubt. It has way more features, a good interface (I don't see why everyone likes iComic's "brushed" look) and you can view any comic you want without any plug-ins at all.

Great idea and love the interface. Only gripe (and this is not at the developer) is I wish more cartoons were available.

I dislike the metal interface and the strange window resizing -- and I really dislike the lack of actual comics. Also, it locks up all the time and the icon stinks.

Comictastic is a much better deal, even at a whopping $15, because it looks so pretty and offers instant support for any comic you want.

Unlike iComic.

Very well-made program. Quick to respond, pretty, easy to use. I have a few gripes (ugly toolbar icons, no way to remove the included comic subscription, tabbed interface a little odd), but overall very good.
