Highly frustrating installation process, ending up in a no-go anticlimax...

I'm not a software developer...

I do not have XCode development tools installed. Or, yes, I do, but XCode failed to build this thing.

Why not provide a pre-built executable, together with the source code somewhere. Or at least some clear instructions as to how one is supposed to get this thing working...

I think Comical is BETTER than ComicBookLover.

It doesn't have all the bells and whistles that ComicBookLover has, but it's FREE and works great.

FYI: The .cbr and .cbz files are just .rar (cbR) and .zip (cbZ) files that anyone can easily read by decompressing them into .jpg.
