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.

Hello people! All you have to do do download Get Fuzzy is click on New Comic, and type in the URL: http://www.comics.com/comics/getfuzzy/index.html
Its that simple-a lot better than iComic. Great job!

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.

Um.... except for the brushed metal, Comictastic has all those things.

I'm having a problem where most of the titles are in red even though I'm having the download action showing in the window frame. Happened after a crash with ver. 1.0 in Jag. and seems to be continueing for me with 1.1.1 have gotten rid of plist and I think anything else, so I'm stumped why this should happen. IP Blocking?

Very nice update, only a few things I notice.

1: The "Comic" menu should be renamed "File".

2: The image resize commands should be moved to a "View" menu.

3: The magnification for comics should be saved somewhere, so whenever I view the same comic it goes to the previous magnification instead of forcing me to resize it.

4: The image resize introduces serious blur, I'm not sure if your using a simple resize hack to do that or if you wrote the resize, but if you wrote it try and remove some fuzziness.

This update lets you add missing comics. It takes about 10 minutes to figure it out and add your own missing personal favorites. Thanks...
