Malware popups

Post by JTheCreator » Thu Apr 19, 2018 12:29 pm

Does anyone else get malware popups or ads when visiting one of these comics? I never have the problem wiyh Ma3, but it always happens when I go to read DC. I'm on a smartphone, and this happens nowhere else.
Behold, my current in development comic book series and the many links you could share for me!

Yeah, I'm right there with ya. It's gotten to the point where I quickly open the image by itself in a new tab as soon as possible to keep them from popping up.

I read the comic on my phone once and got a popup as well.

Yet another reason to always have an adblocker. The advertisers really brought it upon themselves.
Sparking now, search within your soul to find the answer!

I read DC on my phone regularly, and haven't seen anything nasty yet.
For those curious: my avatar is an artistic rendering of a spaceship I drew for a primitive (by today's standards) multiplayer online game called XPilot. (More about both on my website.)
