Hi everyone.

I was into comics during the late 70s through mid 80s but tragically sold off all my comics prior to University. It has probably taken this long just to get over that blunder.

The main reason I'm getting back into comics is that I have a couple of young sons and I'm looking to get them interested in the characters and stories but want to avoid any "The Evil That Men Do" surprises. I was a fan of Spider-man, GI Combat (Haunted Tank), Our Army At War (Sgt Rock) and more. I probably forget more series I used to read than I remember.

I'm also a gamer, predominantly FPS, play golf, hockey and work as an independent computer consultant.

I've been messing around with making comic book themed wallpapers too. Have a look at what I've done at Wallbase (raw searches on that site are potentially NSFW). The nature of the designs are extremely busy but I'm trying to come up with ways to show lots of art without looking like a Nascar fender. If you're interested let me know the resolution you want and I'll create something from the images I have (mostly Spiderman and Avengers).

Thanks. ComicRack has been pretty good so far. A couple of things aren't completely intuitive but once you figure things out it is easy to work with.

I've been getting used to all the scripts and such and it's really helped me stay organized. I am still trying to figure out the best folder structure to use and will read through the tutorial when I have a chance.

My biggest hurdle has been finding a comic reader for the ipad that doesn't use iTunes. I don't think ComicRack has a client yet and if anyone has suggestions feel free to pass them on (going to do a forum search after this post.) I'd ideally like to use a file browser to copy the files off my desktop as needed. Bonus marks if I can sync ratings and reading status back to the original ComicRack files/database (which I have not figured out yet on my Android Smart Phone)

And is there a clean copy of the ComicRack logo? I'd like to add it to the wallpapers I have been making:
