Comic Scrape

So last night I decided I wanted to archive some web comics I used to read religiously in a format that I could later manipulate into an easy to read format so I can catch up on a few years of missed material without clicking Next a ton of times, thus was born cscrape!

It spits out the images and an accompanying XML file in the comics/ directory so that later I can write something else to process them into an easy to digest format to view say on a tablet or mobile phone for comfortable reading while kicked back in my recliner. Unfortunately for right now its fairly specific to a certain comic however I hope to be able make the code a bit more flexible in the future to allow working with any comic and perhaps roll in the functionality to process the scraped data into easy to read formats.
