You can then edit the strips displayed by clicking on the 'Edit Content' for the module. Only thing that stinks (IMHO) is that you can only display three funnies max.
I'll gladly take cash instead of your firstborn. ;)

Ah! I was trying to do it from the Yahoo! front page instead of my "My Yahoo!" page.
For those of you with macs, there's the SayCheese widget which lets you view the 10-12 most recent strips (some of them go back as far as a month and a half) of about 15+ different comics, including Foxtrot, Calvin&Hobbes, Penny Arcade(!!), and my personal favorite Rose is Rose. Sadly no FBOW or Zits though. No adding of other comics through rss feeds or anything, but there's a pretty diverse and well known selection to make it useful. Definitely better than the other comic specific widgets they have on the Apple site.
I think I have a new favorite comic strip -- Lio, a mostly wordless strip about a creepy little boy (?). The style, subject matter, and humor remind me a lot of Gahan Wilson, which is a very good thing.
Besides the other methods already discussed about ways to see your comics online, the Houston Chronicle has a free "build your own comics page" option on their Web site. You don't need to be a Chron subscriber, and the only "cost" I've noticed is that they send me an e-mail asking me to try their other features once in a blue moon. Of course, you're limited to the comics they run, and they don't put the Sunday strips up on the Web for most of them, but they've got a pretty good selection.
Thanks to whoever posted the link to the Houston Chronicle's build-your-own comics page. Here's what I picked:
- 9 Chickweed Lane - Baby Blues - Boondocks (I'm assuming this will go away soon) - Dilbert - Doonesbury - For Better Or For Worse (I don't actually like this, but I've been following it for too long to stop now - much like WWE) - FoxTrot - Garfield (it's terrible, but I didn't think it was when I was 6, so it stays) - Get Fuzzy - Jumble (not technically a comic strip) - Monty - Non Sequitur - Peanuts - Pearls Before Swine - Real Life Adventures - Rhymes With Orange - Sherman's Lagoon - Zits
If that site had Stone Soup (which isn't my favourite anyway, but it's okay) and Frazz, I'd be set. I'd gladly take Calvin & Hobbes, Bloom County, and Far Side reruns too.
I just finished Ben Mezrich's The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal and found it pretty interesting. His stuff is always a sort-of "embellished non-fiction" and I like his writing style....
