- Generates title for you, creates a folder and cbz file for each issue separately
Example: -c
- Generates title for you, creates one large folder with every image in it, and one large cbz
Example: -f Lucifer -c
- Uses title "Lucifer", creates one large folder with every image in it, and one large cbz
- Generates title for you, detects that a single issue link has been provided
Example: -l -d -sd
- Generates title for you, disables wait timer, downloads low(er) quality images, uses Selenium in display mode, downloads each issue into separate folders and CBZ files

This script will create a folder in the current directory (directory the script is run from) with the name of your comic. The name of the subdirectory is denoted by the -f / --folder flag.

The script will download comics to the current working directory, this means the script can be added to the PATH variable without issue.

cd /tmp/comics && $HOME/ComicDownloader/ <comic-url>
# this will download the images and comics to the /tmp/comics directory

This folder will then be filled with sequential images consisting of every image in every issue, in order.

The url parameter may be either the information page for the comic as a whole, or the url for a single issue.

Providing the -c argument will have no effect if you have supplied the link for a single issue.
