v23.3: Improved Pull List and new “Discover” mode!

January 4th, 2023

Woohoo, just barely into 2023 and we’re up to version 23.3 already!
Based on lots of feedback from members of the CLZ Comics group on Facebook, we decided to completely re-design and rewrite the Pull List feature.

  • New “My Series” tab: view releases for your existing series
  • New “Discover” tab: browse ALL recent and upcoming releases!
  • Easier adding of series to your Pull List
  • Easily open the full issue list for any series
