Currently the comic plasmoid only displays a picture. However, for xkcd (and maybe other comics), the title of the comic and the title text (the XHTML title attribute for the img tag that is displayed on a mouseover in graphical browsers) are often a big part of the comic and the plasmoid does not display these.
Changed to a wishlist item, as it's not a bug.

adds the title for xkcd
Ok, I created a patch that adds a virtual QString stripTitle() method to comicprovider and cachedprovider, the title is also stored. I also modifed xkcdprovider to provide the title.
Here is the patch for the dataengine.

adds support for strip titles in the comic app
Additionally I modified the applet to show the title of the comic on top.
I'm not sure though if I should provide an option to deactivate that in the config, or if I should also show the comic title --> "xkcd - Voting Machines" or "xkcd" if there is no strip. Currently it is only the strip title.
