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).
