Web Comic Basics ComicRack™ supports Web Comic (.CBW) files. With Web Comics, ComicRack™ can read comics directly from web pages and display them as if they were standard digital comic archives (CBR, CBZ). Web Comics can be exported to other formats. If the definition supports it, a Web comic can update itself to add new pages (like for daily or weekly comics).

Getting Web comics 1. ComicRack™ forum This is the easiest way. Just login to the ComicRack™ forum and go to the Index of Web Comics. Our developers there have already posted a good collection of Web comics that you can download and use. New Web comics are regularly posted and requests for specific Web comics are entertained.

2. Create Web comics on your own Making a Web comic has 3 main steps: 1. Go with the browser of your choice to your Web comic page. Decide if you need to create a Url based (simple) or a regex based (BrowseScraper, IndexScraper) Web comic. 2. To find the regular expressions, select “View Source” in your browser and copy the html code into a regex testing tool of your choice. Play around with the regular expression. If you think you’re done, put the expressions into the Web comic file and open it with ComicRack™. 3. Please note that ComicRack™ works with the .NET implementation of RegEx. If the expression contains a link group, this one is used. Otherwise the matched expression is used. For additional information on making Web comics, please read the article on the ComicRack™ wiki page.

3. Using Web comic Templates to make Web comics A Web comic template can be easily edited to make the Web comic of your choice, which you can read (with daily updates) from within ComicRack™. Here we discuss the Web comic Template for Gocomics.com (a website that contains a large number of daily comics) and Onemanga.com (a website containing lots of manga). You can freely download the Gocomicstemplate.cbw & Onemanga.cbw files from the ComicRack™ forum.
