Is there a way to link directly to the newest comic? My current link is to cartoon 606 (my all time fav) and then I hit the double arrow button to the newest. Is there a way to do this in one (obsessive, oft-repeated-per-day) click rather than in two?

This will do the trick


You probably will have to edit the properties of your link with that url.

Hey, me too!

610 gives me tingles every time.

I think I should expand on what I said above.

The url I gave always forwards you to the current strip. So if you go there and create a shortcut, it will create one to whatever that current strip is, which will stop being the current strip as soon as a new one is posted. In order to get the shortcut you want, you have to modify the properties of the shortcut by replacing its url with the one I gave above. You can do this by right-clicking the shortcut and selecting properties. You should be able to do the replacement there (at least I think this works in pretty much all browsers).

Or you could link to the archive (http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots.html), and you'll always see at the top if a new comic has been posted. Still takes another click to get to the new comic.

One for the FAQ. This is asked every couple of months.

There is a link at the bottom of every page called "Latest Comic" too.
