How to Keep Up With Your Favorite Webcomics (And Find New Ones!)

One of the things that I was hoping someone would create for us is the perfect tool for reading webcomics — something where you easily could keep track of the webcomics you read, bookmark where you are in the archives, get notified of updates — all together in something really handy and easy to use.

I’ve used for a couple of years now for the bulk of my regular reading, but it’s far from perfect with its strange categorization scheme and a somewhat clunky interface.  Nevertheless I give a lot of credit to its creator Kari Pahula for building something useful and reliable.  I’d love a more rational way to tag comics, allow for organizing my reading around those tags, maybe add in the ability to rate comics so that I can prioritize my reading list by my own ratings.  Than maybe build in some social sharing tools?  If I could get recommendations froma community of readers based on what I’ve ranked highly I think it would help me find new stuff I’d really like.

I’m curious — do others see a need for something like this?  Am I missing some other obvious way to achieve my perfect reading/collecting tool with what already exists?
