At first I thought it might be the ad block from the package manager but I removed it and still no Go Comics. I shut off Ghostery and still no go comics. I even subscibed using a fastmail account an still no go comics!!
Now I am wonder if anyone else has had a problem?
OOps-My Bad!! There is a little red flag at the bottom right of my Iceape browser labelled " Request Policy " that I have to use to allow the comics.
