Editors' review

It used to be the case that you had to go to a lot of trouble if you wanted to read comics that weren't carried by your local newspaper. The Internet has changed all that, of course, and Comical lets you access comics from all over the Web in a format that's almost as easy to use as the funny papers.

Comical's interface is plain and intuitive, with a list of available comics down the left side and a handful of menus across the top. Users simply double-click on the desired comic and Comical downloads and displays the latest installment. We wish that the publisher's information listed how many comics are available, because there are far too many to count; the list runs well into the hundreds. There are classic print comics like Peanuts and Dilbert, but also Web comics like Married to the Sea and XKCD. We love that the program includes both Garfield and Garfield Minus Garfield. Comical also lets users select particular comics as favorites, making it easy for users to download and view only their top picks. The program opens with a screen that includes instructions for its use, and this screen reappears every time a different comic title is clicked on, making it easy to access if you forget a shortcut or other feature. Overall, we were quite impressed with Comical; it was easy to use, and we could have spent hours reading our favorite comics and discovering new ones. In fact, we probably will.

Comical installs and uninstalls without issues. We highly recommend this program to all users.

    "This product is not comical."

    March 25, 2011   |   By ryleah

    Version: Comica 1.11

    Pros

    Not the advertised program

    Cons

    Comical is a very well known open source .cbr reader. This product appears to be an automatic webcomic reader called Comica. If Cnet would omit the L fewer people would give it poor reviews.

    Summary

    This product is not comical.

    Comical is a very well known open source .cbr reader. This product appears to be an automatic webcomic reader called Comica. If Cnet would omit the L in the title and fewer people would give it poor reviews.
