Comics scoops

Here are a few comics scoops that I've made. The .site files themselves are attached and I've dumped the text too. The only trick to comics sites (it seems) is finding good StoryStart and StoryEnd text blocks that sandwich the image tightly, so the rest of the page is ignored...

Note that I found that changing the ImageScaleToMaxWidth parameter didn't seem to have any effect in iSilo. All the image sizing seems to be done in the iSilo conversion. The docs mention that that command may be removed, so perhaps it's no longer functional? Regardless, I left it in but commented out.
