Introducing the New ComicBase Community Forums!

With ComicBase 2020 released, we finally had some bandwidth to update our very useful--but very antiquated--forum software!

The new forum software offers a much slicker experience to chat and share tips with fellow ComicBase users. And to make things even better, we've managed to integrate it with our existing web site so that you can use your login to post to the new forums!

(Note: We're moving the fun over to the new forum site, but you can still browse old discussions under the "Forum Archive" link).

ComicBase 2020 has been the beneficiary of a bevy of fixes and feature updates over the past few weeks, and we've just wrapped them all up into the new ComicBase 20.0.1 update. Included are everything from reporting improvements to the return of Psychic Typing!

Click the link above to see the full list of what's new, and you can get the updated version by just re-downloading the software from the links under My Account > Registrations.
