27 July 2006

Cool comic strip viewer.

Overview

Comictastic automatically grabs your favorite comics from the web, giving you unprecedented comic reading efficiency. Save yourself hours of mucking through the vasty deadwood of unfunny guff and syndicated slag; invigorate your life with fresh humor-infused morsels assembled in one easy-to-use application.

Features
  • Support for 10 breathtakingly humorous comics built right in.
  • Your favorite comic isn't supported? No problem! Just type in the URL and relax. No awkward plug-ins or HTML knowledge necessary.
  • RSS and Atom support for comics that provide feeds (you can also use this feature to read news feeds, in a gimpy sort of way).
  • Download comic archives to easily catch up on missed days.
  • Save comics on your disk for later browsing using the handy built-in calendar.
  • Scheduled refreshing-wake up to fresh comics, just like that!
  • Simple, intuitive interface puts flimsy newsprint to shame. View your comics one at a time, or all at once, newspaper-style. It's your choice.
  • E-mail comics to your friends using the built-in E-mail Comic feature, or just use drag-and-drop to do it your own way.
  • Export comic "definitions" (the files that tell Comictastic how to download a comic), or import definitions created by others, enabling you to instantly add support for new comics.
  • Zoom in on those tiny, hard-to-read comics-or zoom out! The possibilities are practically limitless!

No Get Fuzzy! How could you! Get Fuzzy is one of the few funny comics left in all of creation.

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.
