We are probably a little late on this one but ComicBT is still open for signup. As you may have guessed from the name, CBT is a godsend for comics fans. This specialized comics torrent tracker started out its operations silently back in May 2010 and within a short span of time managed to become one of the largest dedicated comic book trackers online. ComicBT now features over 9000 torrents of high quality downloadable comic books (old & new, including scanned versions), comics related games, movies, OST, audiobooks, e-books and more. The site sports a brand new, polished looking skin and is home to an active community of comic book fans, collectors and enthusiasts. If you are itching to get inside, signups are currently open for a limited amount of time.
Its been just over a year since CBT started its operations and the site has improved at a great pace during the last couple of months. It’s torrent index has more than tripled (since we last covered the site) and now lists over 9000 active torrents up from 2500 back in October 2010. Registered users count has also increased to 2400, despite CBT being a closed community which is almost always invite only.
As for the type of content CBT tracks, it’s pretty much straightforward. You can find both new and old issues of almost all major comic book series on this tracker (this includes individual issues and complete series packs). These usually come in CBR, CBZ or PDF file formats - they are all viewable on the PC and probably even on portable devices such as iPad, provided that you have the required software (for a list of software you can use to view Comic Book Archive files on the PC, look here). In addition to comic books, CBT indexes movies, animation, official soundtracks, audiobooks, e-books and TV series based on comic book characters as well.
Aside from the customized theme that resembles the look and feel of a comic book, ComicBT has a bonus system in place and comes with all other standard features TBDEV 2009 codebase has to offer. The site also features some useful icons which help you identify comics packs, complete series, file format, etc Note that there are wait times for this tracker. instantly in the main index.
