Comic widget should periodicaly check, if strips updates are available and install them in the bacground automaticaly if so.
I second that, also a button for "Check for updates..." to perform the same action would be nice. I actually discovered update possibility in "Get new comics" by accident, so I guess more people even don't know the update is possible.
Just to inform you. I have thought about that for a long time. Yet unfortunately GHNS is not really up to the task yet.
The user would not only be presented with the "overwrite xy" dialog all the time but the comics would be updated too often.
That happens due to GHNS not correctly storing and updating the state of the comic.
I hope to implement this for 4.7, since I created fixes for all the related GHNS problems. Now I am only waiting for them to get reviewed.

Pushed by mfuchs into branch 'master'.
Adds option to enable automatic updating of comics.
The user can define the days between the checks for updates.
If an update is found for an installed comic it will be downloaded and installed automatically.
