You would have to do a search to be sure -- I'm too lazy -- but I believe their TOS forbids using their data in the way that would be required.

I guess if you search on these here forums there is some information indicating the maintainers explicitly don't want an API.

There's probably a rule against posting like this, but all my fucks flew away and I have none left to give...

So, anyway, a quick search of the ComicBookDB Forum shows there aren't any plans and 'Chris' has explicitly stated in the past he doesn't want one.
