Archive comics by simply running `php <name>.php` on the comic you want to
archive. Most of these tools are also designed to be able to be run fairly
regularly and only download the new images for active comics.

## Disclaimer

These scripts are written for archival purposes only, and as long as the comics
are online, you should make every effort to read them on their official
websites! Support the artists wherever you can, including on Patreon, via merch,
and using their sites without ad-block. They depend on every bit of that income
to keep creating their incredible comics, and deserve all the attention and
support we can give them.

If the worst should happen though, running these scripts in advance before a
comic disappears can keep the creator's work alive when they're not able to keep
their original site online anymore. I recommend not publicly listing any of the
archived strips as long as the comic is still online in some official form, but
once one does go offline, it seems right to me to make your archives available
to fans looking for the comic. If you're not sure, you could always try
contacting the artist to make sure it's okay with them!
