Response to: Point/Counterpoint
I think you've got the right idea. Instead of fighting iComic, you should use it to help you. I look at those drop down links a lot of the time. I've even used a link to donate to an artists (so don't forget to put a "Donate" link in your plugin ;).
Maybe you could work with the developer, and plugin authors as well to impliment links and/or blog comments to be downloaded to iComic.
