Comic rocket's facebook login broke in early 2017. Despite repeated attempts at requesting info on their facebook page's wall, fb messenger, twitter, and email, they have not fixed it, or even posted any information about plans to do so. Anyone who created an account with a facebook login is locked out of their account. A few requests early on got responses of how they're a small two-man team with full time jobs and it'll take a while. They said if you could supply information on the account, they'd manually move your account to a local login, to send an email and they'd help. I did so, and never got a response. It's been almost two years, and I had to give up on a lot of webcomics I loved because I have no idea where in their ten year history I left off, and where to even find some of them any more, as I'd moved all my information to their service. My own fault for not retaining a backup, but the whole point of using their service was to have it remotely accessible and not have to continually cross-update two different files every time I read something.

Stopped working properly years ago!

The website fails to update around half of the comics you subscribe to. It is a real problem when you cannot tell if half of the comics you finished are on hiatus or if they did keep going and Comic Rocket doesn't know. I'll comb through my list and find several comics I've read to the latest page a year or two ago to still be going but not according to Comic Rocket. Their overlay also keeps around 25% of comics from displaying properly, so you'll have to read the latest pages separately and then come back to the website to log your progress, negating its purpose entirely!

They also got taken off of the Android Market too for featuring hardcore pornographic material and not updating their ratings for it, although this review is just for the website. I hope a better alternative comes around, or at least their people can get their act together!
